What is GeoSocials?
GeoSocials is a real-time, location based, social game played around you. Discover a whole new way of exploring the world around you, meet new people, and get rewarded in the process. The broad theme of GeoSocials is Play, Win and Socialize.
What is so unique about GeoSocials?
For starters, the multiple game play modes.
Switch from modes where you collect treasures and win points, to where you get to hook up with fellow gamers around you, and another mode where you can actually win real rewards.
Next, the in-built Leaderboard; where players get to know where they rank, not just locally, but globally too. And of course, the GeoSocials portal, where players can carry forward real world conversations with their ‘GeoBuddies’.
Give me a few quick pointers on how to play GeoSocials.
Once you have opened the app on your smartphone, the ‘Treasure Hunt’ mode arms you to embark on a treasure hunt and claim treasures by solving simple challenges. You can also drop ‘treasures’ for other players to claim, and share your feats on Facebook and Twitter.
The ‘Social’ mode: where you meet fellow players, invite them to be your “Geobuddies” and start conversations with them.
In the ‘Rewards’ and ‘Discounts’ mode, you can win real-world goodies dropped in the gaming routes by leading lifestyle brands. And all these points that you collect, help you climb up the Leaderboard.
What exactly do you mean when you say ‘Challenge’?
In the GeoSocials universe, a challenge could be either a simple geo-specific question that you put to your fellow gamers, or provide an answer, or a simple game that a player will need to complete in order to claim a treasure.
Since most of the games in GeoSocials are gesture or voice activated, solving these challenges might find you doing a whole lot of fun things with your smartphone.
How is GeoSocials different from all the other location-based apps out there?
For starters, players wouldn’t have to keep ‘checking-in’ to play this app and nor are they required to be in a restaurant or museum as such. You can play it just about anywhere; in a restaurant, airport, or even on the move.
GeoSocials is all about making new connections, and not just reconnecting with people you already know. It’s about making new friends in your vicinity, and not just poking and pinging acquaintances who might be miles and miles away. You don’t need to go to a particular location to solve challenges and win goodies. So, essentially we are talking about a single app that lets you do a whole lot of fun activities.
What does one get by being on top of the Leaderboard?
If there’s anything that can beat being labeled the top-gun gamer in your whole city, or even the whole country, we’d like to know! But seriously, as of now, the Leaderboard is about the fame, a platform for the best players to proclaim their winnings.
As we grow, users will eventually be able to use the gained points as virtual currencies that they could use in various ways.
