Alternate Reality Game Run An Empire

Run An Empire is a strategy game for mobile devices, based in the real world. Players compete with their neighbours to own the most territory in their area. The owner is whoever runs/ walks/ jogs around it the most times. Players must choose with every run if they are going to reinforce their own territory or liberate an opponents.

To play, you just turn on the app. The game uses your phone’s GPS to record the path you take. To capture a territory, you simply run, or walk, around it. Everybody plays using the same map, which means nearby players can capture land from you – all they have to do is run round your most vulnerable turf.
