If you combined RISK, Farmville, FourSquare, and Starcraft with a dash of WarGames, you’d get QONQR.
This new MMO game brings together secret missions, geo-tagging, military strategy, and multi-player social coordination into the game play experience. All of this is wrapped up in a science fiction story line where the objective is none other than world domination. Featuring over 2 million battle zones in more than 250 countries, the game is truly global, with players acting as operatives in one of three factions competing for control.
Founded by four like-minded entrepreneurs after winning the Twin Cities Startup Weekend, the game includes some interesting innovations in location-based game play. When it launches, QONQR will be available on all major mobile platforms, the Web, and on Facebook. Operatives can enlist now on the QONQR website.
Dream of world domination? Meet the team on Sunday, when QONQR will be showcased at our SXSW Accelerator Kickoff event.
