What is known

The project is called Follow the JC Go, and the fans of the mobile game about pocket monsters immediately find similarities. Players will also walk in the real world, but now their goal is the virtual Bible characters. Stumbled on the Holy, the player comes to him in an intellectual battle on knowledge of the laws of God. As Pokemon Go, Follow JC Go uses GPS to track the position of the player, and a camera for viewing the environment. In addition, the game has mechanics Tamagotchi, so that the virtual character will have to feed and water.

Follow JC Go also offers the player to perform real tasks. For example, to pray, passing by the Church or hospital. The player can also donate money using the app.

The game is already out on Android and iOS. The developers noted that the project was done without the knowledge of the Vatican, but the Pope approved the idea.

“You know, Francis is not a very technological person, but he was delighted and realized the idea we tried to implement: to combine technology with evangelism,” said Ricardo Grzona, Executive Director of the Fundación Ramón Pané.
