Abstract

801/5000 The non-digital game in real life is an activity that is not new since people have played outdoors since the origin of humanity. In recent years, the democratization of the use of smartphones, the evolution of proximity technologies (GPS, BEACONS, NFC) and the emergence of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality have facilitated the digitization of games in real life Creating a new genre: geolocated games or urban games. These genres of video games offer a new immersive way of interacting with the real world and other players mixing physical reality and virtual reality with creative and innovative game mechanics that create game dynamics that open endless possibilities for the entertainment world and education.
