Pokemon Go made the first huge splash as an augmented reality game, and several other game have tried to follow suit. But a new game just announced by the creator of Katamari Damacy could actually take off.
In a video announcing Woorld for AR, Katamari creator Keita Takahashi showed of just what the silly little mobile game entails. When you boot up the game, the app will first map your room, and then place a variety of cartoon items around it. Toilets, pyramids, houses and seed sprouts are just a few of the things that will be available. You can even make it rain on the seed sprouts to create flowers.
Right now, it is a bit unclear as to what the goal of the game is, although Takahashi said that a sandbox mode can be unlocked "when you achieve the goal that we aren't talking about yet." It appears there may be some simple tasks involved, but that is purely based on what the video shows.
Funomena is developing the game. Takhashi is creative director.
