With the term "Augmented Reality" starting to make its way into the public consciousness after the wildly popular Pokemon Go last year it was inevitable that more games would attempt to capture a mass audience using similar technologies. Redmon'ds 9Logic Technologies has introduced what they see as worthy entry in the field and are backing that up with what they call "Seattle's largest ever digital treasure hunt" on Saturday May 20. The hunt starting at 11am, using the game of course, will focus on six Seattle neighborhoods including West Seattle and Ballard. Also included are Capitol Hill, Green Lake, Queen Anne and South Lake Union.
Each of the six neighborhood hunt winners will be able to select a $500 gift card to a retailer or restaurant embedded into the game such as Amazon, Nordstrom, Delta Air Lines, The Home Depot and Target and more.
Captain Blimey is a free, pirate-themed, augmented reality (AR), treasure hunt mobile game available via Google Play and the App Store.
