The World Chico, and Everything in It

Own this WorldAs Tony Montana can attest, the business of world ownership can get a little messy, a little dangerous and all kinds of illegal. Calgary developers Big Nerds in Disguise aim to let us all embrace our inner Scarface in a much more acceptable way with their app Own This World.

The world of geo-dependent online games (or GDOG) has been slowly growing over the past year and is set break through to the mainstream with apps such as Foursquare and Gowalla. Own This World looks to set itself apart from the pack, not by focusing on building social relationships, but by tearing those relationships to the ground, destroying the survivors and salting the earth so nothing can grow.

Wired Magazine’s Love For Own This World

Here is some great news for one of the best apps to come out of the Calgary Market. Own This World, developed by the great guys from Big Nerds In Disguise are featured on Wired.com’s Geek Dad.

Own This World is a geo-locational game similar to Foursquare and Gowalla, but with one big twist. Own This World lets you attack and conquer your neighbours. As a local product, it has garnished a pretty big following in Calgary and the surrounding areas. But hopefully, with this article, it’ll start really picking up steam south of the border.

If you’re wondering we’ll be reviewing and writing more about this app in the next couple of weeks.
