Dustcloud Brings Laser Six Shooters to a Live RPG #Mobile #Exergame

The DUSTCLOUD is a mobile, first-person shooter (FPS) game played using GPS tracking (+ZigBee communications) and electronic ray guns called DUSTERS. It’s a mobile  #exergame played with others locally but can be played anywhere, by anyone, at any time. Your character and skill levels are seen in your player profiles as each team has roles that need to be filled like Broker and Cleaner. The object is to shoot other team members with your different colored (blue, green, red) guns (Dusters)  before they shoot you. If you get shot, you lose your Speks (5 cents per shot) but the other person will capture your victim's Speks. Paired to your mobile device via Bluetooth, this game promises to "track opponents, create alliances, see your friends, call on opponents for a match," call in reinforcements and bring an urban RPG game play to a whole new level.


Using Speks costs cash money at $.05 each via PayPal, so there’s an incentive to use them wisely. They’re stored in your paired device where you can reload them into your Duster. But, if you’re a good player you won’t have to buy them very often. When someone is dusted:
• Their Dusters are switched off for thirteen seconds.• The Speks in their Dusters are captured by the player who has dusted them.• Their positional marker (POI) disappears from the iOS and Android app on their phone.• Their efficiency percentage decreases incrementally on the Dustcloud database.• Their Mini Dossier is sent to the Dustbin in the Dossier of the player who has dusted them.
