Plundr

Plundr is the world's first location-based PC game. Using state-of-the-art Wi-Fi Positioning System technologies (WPS), the game locates the user's computer in physical space and uses their location as part of the game.

The game itself is a pirate adventure, in which players move from island to island to buy, sell and fight for goods. Depending on where you are in the physical world, you'll find different islands, different market prices and different ships to fight.

You may have also heard that we're working on a version of Plundr for the Nintendo DS. We're working on it, though it's not quite ready for prime time yet. In case you were wondering, we're using the R4DS for homebrew development and the Skyhook Wireless Wi-Fi positioning system.
