“Chester Zoo launches new augmented reality mobile game that transforms players’ worlds into a jungle – enabling them to experience what it’s like to track real apes and carry out conservation challenges, all from their smartphones.
Players join a team of wildlife scientists and help them protect the last wild spaces on Earth, which are home to critically endangered apes. The game is based on real animals living in the wild today and the people working to protect them, all brought to life through augmented reality.
Created by Kenyan game company Internet of Elephants in collaboration with conservation organisations Borneo Nature Foundation, Goualougo Triangle Ape Foundation and Zoo Atlanta, the new Wilderverse app is now available for free via Google Play and the App Store globally.”
