Def.: Location-based Game

A location-based game (or location-enabled game) is one in which the game play somehow evolves and progresses via a player’s location. Thus, location-based games almost always support some kind of localization technology, for example by using satellite positioning like GPS. “Urban gaming” or “Street Games” are typically multi-player location-based games played out on city streets and built up urban environments.

Der englische Begriff Location-based Game (LBG) bezeichnet ein (Computer-)Spiel, in dem der Spielverlauf in irgend einer Form durch die Veränderung der geografischen Position des Spielers beeinflusst wird. Eine deutsche Übersetzung findet sich in “positionsbezogenes Spiel”.
