After years of working all day at the computer and then coming home to TV, video games and more computer; I began to lose touch with reality. It was as if I was having more fun in the virtual world than I was in the real world! I needed to get out, meet new people and experience new things. But how?
I spent months trying to fulfill my appetite for Real World Fun. I used to be good at sports so I gave that another shot. Turns out you can "lose" athleticism (whatttt!?). I made it a point to attended more meetups and hang with my friends more often. Turns out socializing with people face to face is much more fun than chatting with them online (who knew!?). But even then, it was tough to find a fun/cheap place to hang out and have a good time.
I figured we all love games right? We play board games(Monopoly), card games(Go Fish), dice games(craps), drinking games(beer pong), lawn games(croquet), sports(baseball), video games(Mario), word games(hang man) and lots more! But since video gaming came to town, innovation in "types" of games has come to a standstill. That's because instead of creating new types of games, we have been buisy pushing the limits of what video games can do. The unfortunate side effect of video gaming is that it has a lot of people stuck at home, lost in a virtual reality.
So that is why we build Real World Games. We want to have more Real World Fun and we're pretty sure you do too. So for the past year my partners and I completely cut ourselves off from the outside world, heads down writing code and building our first Real World game. Ironic, isn't it?
