While Pokémon Go set the stage for location-based augmented reality mobile gaming by having players collect animated pocket monsters in the real world, The Walking Dead: Our World is a new game with a similar premise, but challenges players to protect the world that they know and love from being overrun by the undead.

There are plenty of zombie-hunting games that aim to convey the terror of an apocalyptic world overrun by nightmarish creatures, this new game offers a new level of realism, as players will see zombies in real-world locations that are familiar to them. The app for Android and Apple also gives players to immerse themselves in the hit AMC show by collecting characters, weapons and well-known items from the series.

The Walking Dead: Our World makes the most of both the Google Maps API and ARCore to provide a rich location-based gaming experience.
