Coke Zero's 'Tron LiveCycle' Location-Based Mobile Game (Video)

Posted by Rick Mathieson on November 29th, 2010 at 5:41 pm

So much more than a Zero sum game.
This exactly what a Tron-related mobile game should be like. Or should it be called a "sponsored, co-branded social mobile game"? Is it a game for Coke Zero, or for Tron Legacy? When it looks this cool, who cares.
Add in augmented reality and this ARG (alternate reality game) could have been spectacular. Add in the video of Tron star Jeff Bridges doing a dramatic reading of one of his Hyundai commercials, and it could have been priceless.
Or better yet, add in augmented reality showing Jeff Bridges in Tron garb, reading the text while driving a videogame version of a Hyundai. While drinking a Coke Zero.
Sponsored by Kotex.
Now that would have been something to see.
