Features to battle Corona

Corona situation in Europe is still developing, so we are bringing two small features that will hopefully allow you to do big things with the current circumstances.

You might find your clients in a situation where:
a) players can go outside, but not be together, so location-based games are not a good idea
b) players are not allowed outdoors alone or in groups

We have addressed these with two features:

  • activation with odometer, so you can avoid forcing people into a bigger group
  • activating tasks with clicking on a map so you can build indoor adventures

Activation on Odometer

Odometer activates tasks based on how many meters the player has walked. So you could make a game that will open a task every 50 meters, for example. This will allow you to build a simple incentive game that people can play alone at the place they are at, but still, compare the results with others. It still means the player needs to go outdoors though.

Odometer activation will be available from the 1st of April. Check under templates, there are a couple of new templates about it, that you can use to create your own game. One of them is “Into Fresh Air”. It uses Creator PRO editor for the game, but fear not, you can use it even if you do not have Creator PRO in your package.

Open tasks on the map by clicking on them

This will also be available for all the users from the 1st of April. This feature allows the player to open any location visible on a map by clicking on it (and not going there).

To set it up, open any map game you have created (or create a new one), go to game configure screen and open Task settings on the right. The last one should be “Allow open task on map”. Activate it and all the tasks can now be opened by clicking on them.

Use it to build indoor games, turn outdoor games into indoor quizzes instantly, build indoor games with floor plans.

What to do next?

Update your applications and check out the features in Loquiz PRO. Let us know below in the comments on how you are using them, so others get good ideas as well.
