Helsinki, Finland & New York – April 24, 2019 — The global smash hit location-based augmented reality mobile game The Walking Dead: Our World has won three Webby Awards. The innovative game, a collaboration between the Finnish game developer Next Games and AMC, won the Webby for Technical Achievement and both Webby and People’s Voice Award for Best Use of Augmented Reality.
The Walking Dead: Our World, based on AMC’s hit TV show, is a location-based AR (Augmented Reality) game built upon deeply collaborative gameplay. The game is a pioneer in its genre, integrating Google Maps technology and its map data into an engaging and versatile game experience.
Using location data, The Walking Dead: Our World turns the player’s real world surroundings into a digital zombie apocalypse, creating undead hordes for players to discover and defeat in their neighborhoods alongside fan-favorite characters from the hit show. Players join groups of other survivors from around the globe to work together for big rewards.
Next Games and AMC have innovated deep integrations between the show and the game, including weekly show-themed in-game events during Season 9 of The Walking Dead. And fans of both the show and the game can look forward to even more features and immersive experiences rolling out in The Walking Dead: Our World in the coming months.
