DreamWorks Animation and Nokia have teamed up for and just released a new game called Dragons Adventure. The game uses real-world data to affect your gameplay. It is an augmented reality, GPS-driven 3D game based on the 2010 animated fantasy movie ‘How to Train Your Dragon’. It is exclusive for the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet, which actually arrived just yesterday.
Dragons Adventure is mostly for kids and the tablet uses data from the HERE Maps platform and transforms and reshapes the game world according to the actual route you take every day, as well as the buildings and landmarks. Long trips to school are now part of the gameplay. In-game weather is also changed to correspond with the actual weather at your location. It’s a pretty novel concept that kids should love.
Kids will love it, sure. But parents can take part in the game as well and don’t have to be left out. A companion app for Lumia smartphones allows them to be ‘quest masters’, (similar to Game Masters in D and D) who set up routes, challenges and create missions for all the players. The game comes preinstalled on the Lumia 2520 and we don’t know yet if it will be available for other Windows RT 8.1 tablets.
