Pokémon GO is the new “talk of the town,” well, at least for now. Released in the US just two weeks ago, Pokémon GO is worth $29 billion based on Nintendo’s stock price jump (up almost 50% this month), but that’s actually a bargain with revenue that goes way beyond in-app purchases. The location-based mobile game developed by Nianticallows players to capture, battle, and train virtual creatures who appear on the screen as though existent in the real world. This “realistic” spin on a popular video game series has literally taken the world by storm, and is quite simply, genius. The game falls under the emerging genre of augmented reality (AR), characteristic of a view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input. The game’s success is largely attributed to this facet.

The game was made with Unity technology, today’s absolute most popular game development platform. Its portability is emphasized as a key feature, as the cross-platform game engine has been extended from only Mac OS X capability in 2005, to 24 platforms in 2016. TechSuite has now ventured into this exciting 2D/3D gaming technology, equipping itself with a team of talented and experienced Unity developers. We are ready to help you develop the game of the future. Contact us for a free consultation today!
