Locomobio is a location based mobile phone game using over-ground train system. As a personalized experience that heavily focuses on the Osaka loop line in west Japan, what happens in the game is directly related to where you are on the train line. The game is designed to be of simple mechanics and visuals, be “pick-up-and-play” and be highly replayable.
As a student pitch project team in ETC Osaka Campus, we are inspired by the mutual commonality and culture of trains and mobile phones in Japan. We want to fully explore the game concept of combining both technologies to make an accessible virtual world on railway and bring up new train-ride experience.
