The battle for our future will be fought in our days, this is what Augmented Reality game developer Empower Labs would have us believe. The AR gaming startup based out of Hyderabad, is challenging the monopoly of Niantic in the mobile AR genre with its location-based mobile AR game ‘Delta T’.
The Delta T franchise is set in a science fiction universe where time travel is a reality. Featuring four Mega Corporations that fight for world domination, the players of the game fight it out for their chosen Megacorp, and their vision for the future.
The open beta of Delta T hits Play Store and iOS App Store this March 2018. The game’s closed beta in August last year spread virally to a 116 countries, in the three months of its closed beta, creating a stir in the AR gaming community. The game’s spectacular closed beta performance and its association with the creative team of Bahubali for their trailers have built up the expectations surrounding its open beta release. The open beta version of Delta T promises to be a major upgrade both in terms of the features and mechanics that it brings to the AR genre.
Krishna Milan Rao, CEO and founder of Empower Labs commented “We’re always pushing ourselves to bring the best to our users. Delta T has been built ground up based on user feedback, working very closely with our community of beta gamers. We have also integrated innovative camera AR mechanics which add a lot of value to the gameplay.”
Empower Labs has received about $1 Million in funding from private investors in the US and India. They plan to use the funds to complete development and market Delta T on a global scale, and to begin development on their next game based on the blockchain platform.
