Urban Defender: New Urban Action Game?

Have you ever heard something about a crazy game called “Urban Defender”? No? Me neither! But yesterday I read a text about it and thought it might be interesting for you…

Urban Defender is not that classical game, young people playing in the streets of their quarter, it’s something more! It combines action, tactical planning and high-tech:

“Urban Defender is a location-aware game that takes place in cities and towns. The game and its main interface, the ball, are situated inside the real world. Other location based games often only work with displays or have navigational character.

This game is based upon elements that are fundamental to people in urban situations: districts and their habitants. Targeting children and young adults, the goal and main rule of the game is: try to conquer as many quarters as possible, reinforce these quarters and defend them against other players. (zhdk.ch)

The entire game is based on full wlan or GPRS client-server communication and offers a sophisticated online, web-based visualization…

Sounds very interesting. The full concept behind that new urban game is available on its project site. What do you think?
