Techerous

My name is Bill, I am a recent graduate in Information Sciences and Technology from Penn State University and this is a place for me to post or give my 2 cents on the fascinating world of technology. I am now working for a pretty big technology related company whose name I will leave out just to avoid any possible complications, however far-fetched them happening may be. Music gets included from time to time as well.

Turn Your City Into a Monopoly Board With Foursquare-Based Game

Funded by a Kickstarter campaign earlier this year, the game is way different than anything you’ve played every before. “Real world Monopoly” is the one-liner that founder Michael Tseng has used to describe the game.

That description covers the basic premise of Turf, but under the surface you’ll find a much more interesting and complex game.

“When we put out Turf we looked at all the things we like about games,” says Tseng. “When people think casual games they think FarmVille, and we’re not FarmVille. When they think mobile games, they think Angry Birds.

Turf isn’t about five to ten minutes of addition and endorphin rush — it’s a much slower game, but I think it’s just as rewarding.”
