I have had a background in mobile augmented and mobile driven LARP projects for going on 5 years. It works, and is probably the way forward for parlor style games into the future. Mage: Eclipse could be such a game, taking the ‘unplayable’ LARP of Mage and turning into something nuanced and usable.
