De fleste af os kender nok Pokémon GO. Nu er der en ny spiller på banen med et nyt AR spil. Byd velkommen til Draconius Go.

Da Niantic udgav Pokémon GO, var det første gang vi hørte om AR (Augmented reality) spil. Nu er en ny spiller kommet på banen, og er pludseligt et spil der ligger på alles læber.

Den Ukrainske spil udvikler Elyland har netop udgivet Draconius Go, som er et spil der er bygget på AR platformen. Spillet ligner til nærmelses vis Pokémon GO, men forskellen er alligevel ret stor når man kommer igang med det. Det som er fælles er netop AR, hvor du kan fange monstre i den virkelige verden.

Niantic har sendt en klage til Elyland da de mener Draconius Go er en plagiat af deres meget populære Pokémon GO. Elyland har meldt dette ud officielt:

We’ve received an un-grounded complaint from Niantic in the Appstore — they think we’ve violated their copyright. However, we didn’t use their coding or graphics when developing our product, it’s absolutely original. The developers of this popular GO game seem to think that they own the exclusive rights for the whole AR genre. It’s not like that. We believe that the market and players will only benefit from healthy competition.

When we developed this game, we consulted leading world-class lawyers, and we are 100% certain that Niantic’s claim is unjustified. Niantic’s reaction shows that they consider us as a serious rival. By doing so, they actually prove that our product is better. In just one year, our Ukrainian team has managed to do more than Niantic, with all their billions of income. And we are proud of our results. Our graphic is unique and better quality than in any other AR games. Besides, our game offers a variety of game mechanics that were never used in other AR games.

We hear and understand our players, we offer them an interesting gameplay. That’s what makes us special. We hope that our rivals will start improving their own games instead of making complaints and ignoring their fans. Currently, we are preparing new updates that we hope will make our players happy in the nearest future.

Draconius GO byder på en del af det som Pokémon GO fans har sukket efter (blandt andet PvP). Gad vide om Niantic føler sig truet siden de klager over dette spil?
