Celestial Messengers  – Mobile Augmented Reality Game

Game Overview: Celestial Messengers is an augmented reality (AR) mobile game that invites players to embark on a journey to discover the divine messengers of the angels. Drawing inspiration from games like Pokémon GO and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, the game blends real-world exploration with mystical elements, creating an immersive experience that is both entertaining and enlightening.

Gameplay: Players start by choosing an avatar representing one of the seven angelic factions (Gabriel, Raphael, Baradiel, Michael, Zadkiel, Zebul, and Cassiel) and customising their appearance.
The game uses the player’s GPS location to generate a map filled with points of interest, called “Celestial Beacons,” which are tied to real-world landmarks such as historical sites, monuments, and natural wonders. Players must visit these locations to encounter and interact with the angelic messengers using their phone’s camera and AR capabilities.
As players explore the world, they will come across Asaphiel, Ithuriel, Sariel, Eleazar, Jophiel, Raziel, and Uriel. Each encounter with a messenger is unique, completing challenges inspired by the angel’s attributes.
For example, players may have to solve a healing-related challenge when encountering Ithuriel (Raphael’s messenger) or a celestial navigation puzzle when meeting Uriel (Cassiel’s messenger).
Players can collect divine artifacts, such as scrolls, relics, and celestial instruments, which can be used to unlock special abilities, gain insights, or enhance their interactions with the messengers.
In addition to the main quest of encountering all the messengers, the game features side quests and daily challenges that encourage players to explore their surroundings and interact with other players.

Social Features: Celestial Messengers offers a cooperative multiplayer experience, allowing players to team up with friends or other players to complete challenges and unlock rewards. Players can also trade artifacts and share hints to help each other progress in their journey.
Leaderboards and achievements will showcase players’ progress, rewarding those who have encountered the most messengers or completed the most challenges.

Educational Elements: Celestial Messengers incorporates elements of ancient literature, mythology, and religious symbolism to create an educational and thought-provoking experience. Players can learn about the history and symbolism associated with each angel and their messenger, fostering a deeper understanding of the cultural and spiritual context behind the game’s characters.

By combining the thrill of exploration, the excitement of discovery, and the mystique of ancient mythology, Celestial Messengers offers an engaging and immersive AR gaming experience that transcends the boundaries between the real world and the divine realmAn augmented reality mobile game to find the messengers of the Archangels.
