Something free to start your morning off with. The app or game is called SkinVaders and it’s an augmented reality style game that puts you in the game. Looking at the screenshots, the game puts these blobs of invaders on your face and you’ve got to kill them by tapping on them. Meh, whatever, it’s free…
Total Immersion, the global leader in augmented reality, today released SkinVaders™, a fun game for all ages available as a free download for the iPhone®, iPad2® and iPod touch® at App Store(SM) at http://www.itunes/apps/skinvaders.
Created with Total Immersion’s D’Fusion® Studio Augmented Reality (AR) platform, SkinVaders is the first game to fully leverage AR literally bringing players into the game—by transforming their faces into game terrain over which alien invaders, known as SkinVaders, battle it out for total domination. To defeat the SkinVaders, players eradicate invading aliens by tapping on them and popping the eggs laid by the invaders. With 9 levels and a variety of SkinVaders, all the action takes place on the face of the player. Pictures are automatically snapped during the process incorporating the 3D graphics, making them fun to share with friends and family. The stakes are high: It’s time for players to save face.
"SkinVaders demonstrates a world of possibility created by Total Immersion’s powerful augmented reality platform D’Fusion Studio," said Bruno Uzzan, CEO of Total Immersion. "Players are literally brought into the game as they fight the invasion of SkinVaders intent on taking over their face. The markerless tracking and rendering are so sophisticated that players can suspend belief, deeply engaging in the most personal, realistic and real-time augmented reality experience on the market today."
