People have been wanting for Pokemon to leak into the real world for decades, and now, with Pokemon GO we’re only seeing the tip of the iceberg. The game has been out for a week or so, and people have already called it their favorite game ever. If you don’t know what Pokemon GO is all about, just look it up on YouTube, but for now, all you need to know is that it uses Google Maps API for tracking your location, uses your phone’s camera to catch the Pokemon near you, and what most important, forces you go outside and explore the world! Some Tumblr users even stated that the game has motivated them to get out of bed, which can be a real problem for people with depression. And nearly every conducted research has shown that walking and enjoying nature will improve your mental health.
The hype for this game is real and justified, as no other game has done something like this before. There were similar projects but, come on, this is Pokemon we’re talking about. After just these few days of being available for the US, NZ and AUS users, the game crushed Tinder’s traffic stats and is aiming for Twitter. Twitter, man!
