    Paranormal Activity: Sanctuary is a location based, massively multiplayer, augmented reality game set in the real world where your home town, your office, your neighborhood become the front lines of a supernatural conflict.

    Few are aware of the demonic forces forever trying to break through into our world. As a demonologist, you are an expert in occult secrets, with the knowledge and power to stem the tide of evil spirits attempting to corrupt the minds of humanity.

    In Paranormal Activity: Sanctuary you will investigate paranormal phenomena to identify hot spots of demonic activity called hellholes, then use your arcane powers to exorcise the evil spirits and create sanctuaries that protect against further attacks. But beware, if you let down your guard you risk becoming possessed by dark spirits and turning against your former allies.


    • Hunt out ghosts and demons in the physical world using your video camera, take pictures to document your investigations, and gain experience as a Demonologist.

    • Go on real-world supernatural and paranormal missions to discover spells and powers in your fight against the forces of darkness.

    • Cast spells to create sanctuaries to defend your home, office, local coffee shop, or school.

    • Empower your spells (via vision-based Augmented Reality) by drawing mystic symbols, and having them come to life in the physical world around you.

    • Beware of demonic forces driving you insane, or you will become a possessed minion of darkness with a whole new style of game play. The Possessed are tasked to create hellholes to summon additional demonic forces.

    Paranormal Activity: Sanctuary isn't deep, and it's far from flashy; you essentially stare at a version of Google Maps with a few additional icons. It's a fun game, however, and you'll be doing your part to keep your neighborhood clean.

    This is a very cool game. You are a demonologist trying to rid the world of, well...demons. It uses actual real world locationsThis is a very cool game. You are a demonologist trying to rid the world of, well...demons. It uses actual real world locations (location-based) as part of the gameplay, so the moment I cast a spell to create a sanctuary, it appears on the map so everyone can see it. The game also tosses in some unique augmented reality elements such as drawing a star to power up my spells. One site I saw called this "foursquare in hell", but with elements of the board game "Risk". That sums it up really well. Expand

    Awesome - You can cast spells, which create sanctuaries in the real world on a google map and your name appears on the map at the protectorAwesome - You can cast spells, which create sanctuaries in the real world on a google map and your name appears on the map at the protector of this area. You can draw a pentagram on a paper to boost your spell casting power, and you can play while walking around, shopping, etc.
    Geo location with Augmented Reality - This is really cool!
