If you have heard of “The Hagenuk MT-2000” then you must be aware of one interesting feature that this mobile handset had. Remember Tetris? Yes, Tetris was the first ever mobile game that was featured in this very handset. Within 3 years, a new game took away the market by storm. It became an instant hit and the amount of excitement and joy that this game could bring was beyond expectation. Don’t guess, you already know the name. It was ‘Snake’ that had forced us to get glued to the screen for hours. The reason that we loved these games so much because there were no other alternatives back then. Unlike today, where we get bombarded with the plethora of options in just a single day. In fact, the future holds even more competition in the mobile gaming industry, so much so that companies will have to come up with a solid innovation. Games like Pokemon Go gives us the hope that we are on the right track.
Indeed, we have come a long way in the arena of mobile gaming. The stunning visuals and graphics have taken the mobile gaming experience to the another level. Given the progress that mobile gaming technology has made over these years, we would surely expect some mind-blowing trends in the near future.
If you love Pokemon Go then you very well know what Augmented reality is. Here is the google definition of it - “A technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world, thus providing a composite view.” You have certainly experienced it in your favourite Pokemon Go, but what if I told you that this is just a start of the enormous possibilities that can be a reality in a near future? As the technology progresses, we can surely see games that give the users power to play around nearby objects on the screen. Pretty cool. Right?
Hiring through mobile games
You read it right. Sourcing candidates is one of the boring jobs for the hiring managers. This boredom can easily be taken out by the advent of mobile games which will specifically cater to hiring. This would help each and every hiring managers who found sourcing developers and engineers a tiring job. It would also help the companies who help businesses to get the right developer for their organisation. For example, startup like aircto that provides on-demand interviewers to interview the candidates. Companies then need only provide the sourced resume to them to close the open positions for engineers and software developers.
Mobile is the new console
Of course, today’s mobile games come nowhere near to the level of detail that a gaming console provides. But, this difference is likely to be zero to none in the coming years. It is quite possible that mobile phones will be the new gaming consoles of the future. The ease of operation and the useful feature of mobility will eventually outweigh the gaming console.
We have waited so eagerly for the epitome of virtual reality. We all know we couldn’t hold our excitement when Oculus rift was launched. The experience of immersing into the virtual world is surreal. Hold your breath, because this very technology could be easily available in our future mobile handset. You could certainly imagine yourself driving the race car in the Asphalt. There could also be the possibility of amalgamation of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality to deliver the kickass game experience that we can’t even think of.
