I was a back-end developer for the Gadzillion.org mathematical game quiz site, a four-time Memphis City Chess Champion and 1992 Silicon Valley Chess Co-Champion. I am now creating a mobile rewards game based on player proximity and action campaigns.
I am creating a Mobile Rewards Game that utilizes domain specific virtual currencies to underlie a reward system that is based on a player's proximity and activity within branded campaigns that are targeted by player locations and demographics. The player's physical self plus mobile device serve as an avatar undertaking real world quests. Achievements immediately earn physical rewards that promote branding within a client campaign, and are generally earned and received while at retail or other physical locations. Additional earned value can accrue within or across domains, and may be spent later to receive larger rewards that are earned over multiple client campaigns.
Yet another good meetup, and well worth the time.
