Yaatra is a new desi AR app and here's how Reliance Jio is a part of it
Krikey is available for free on the IOS App Store and Google Play Store.
Augmented Reality (AR)-based gaming company, Krikey, launched a new game in India in partnership with Reliance Jio. Jio also led the Series A funding round, which raised total funding of the gaming company to $22 million.
As far as the newly launched game AR Yaatra is concerned, Krikey says that players can step into the action-adventure story of Yaatra and join the quest to defeat a monster army with their phone camera. Using weapons such as the bow and arrow, chakra, lightning and fire bolts, players can battle through different levels of combat and puzzle games.
The company says once users complete their gameplay, they can choose to share a personalised video with friends. There are also video feeds to see gameplay videos posted by other users and a digital training ground where players can practice their bow and arrow skills before playing again.
Jio users will get exclusive access to 3D Avatar feature, gameplay tokens to unlock additional weapons and powers and game levels.
"Krikey will inspire a generation of Indians to embrace Augmented Reality. Our vision is to bring the best experiences from across the world to India and the introduction of Yaatra is a step in that direction. Augmented Reality gaming takes the user into a world of its own, and we invite every Jio and non-Jio user to experience AR through Yaatra,” Akash Ambani, Director, Jio, said on the occasion.
Krikey is available for free on the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.
