Grey Area
"Grey Area changes the way games are understood as part of the life in the city. The Company was founded to create a breakthrough gaming experience using real world locations as the context for mobile games.

We see cities as playing fields, neighborhoods as front lines.

The core group comprises Mikko Hämäläinen, Andreas Karlsson, Teemu Tuulari and Ville Vesterinen with a network of world class investors and advisors. We are currently looking for more talent to join our team of 15. Regardless of where you reside, if you get games and just got interested, get in touch!"

Shadow Cities, a New iPhone Video Game - Review - NYTimes.com
"I have played the future of mobile gaming. It is called Shadow Cities.

If you have an iPhone, you simply must try this game. Shadow Cities isn’t just the future of mobile gaming. It may actually be the most interesting, innovative, provocative and far-reaching video game in the world right now, on any system.

That’s a strong, perhaps outrageous, statement. But it’s merited because Shadow Cities delivers a radically fresh sort of engagement. Shadow Cities fully employs the abilities of the modern smartphone in the service of an entertainment experience that feels almost impossibly exciting and new."

"Until now games on phones and tablets have basically used those devices as small versions of traditional game machines; they did not allow you to play directly with other users in real time and they certainly took no note of where you were in the real world…

But in Shadow Cities the network and the real world it pervades become the game, which is so much more powerful."

Conquer The Neighborhood With Your iPhone — The Pop-Up City
"Described as the next step in social gaming, Shadow Cities is a location-based Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) that takes the urban environment as platform. Neighborhoods and familiar streets are part of the game world that is visible on the screen of the iPhone. Familiar to the purpose of psychogeographic games such as Serendipitor, Shadow Cities enables its players to explore their surroundings with new eyes. It combines local, location aware gaming with global web gaming and aims to attach new meaning to once mundane places, “as you learn their magical properties. Your office building might just be the most important spot in the whole city”. Every city in the world transforms into a battle arena."
