Now that we’ve put many of the foundations in place, we can start putting together our geosocial game application. In this chapter, we’ll build a game called Moundz. Moundz is a geosocial game that piggybacks off existing geosocial networks such as Foursquare and Gowalla. The general concept is that geosocial check-ins of people around the world become resources. These resources are then collected and redeployed in a quest for virtual world domination. In Moundz, players help to build ant mounds that become their strongholds, from which they can launch an assault on enemy territory. Only the strong and diligent will survive.
