App Store Description

**For the iPhone 4S, iPad2 or newer devices.**

Herd nerds through a distracting office space!

Help them avoid managers, deal with annoying paperwork, overcome their fear of sports, and chase down donuts, coffee and techie toys!

NerdHerder is an exciting new kind of motion-controlled table-top augmented reality puzzle game.
- Print out the game board from to get started.
- Point your phone at the gameboard and see a different office environment for each level of the game, right there in the world!
- Play the game using a virtual fishing rod attached to your phone, that you can use to pick up and dangle objects in front of the nerds to push or pull them through the office.
- Exercise your planning and action skills to herd the nerds back to their cubicles!

Game Features
- Tabletop Augmented Reality game interface: The game levels appear to be in the world on the game board.
- Physical control: Interact by moving the phone around the board
- A combination of puzzle solving and physical skill
- 24 fun and challenging levels
- Built with Unity3D and Qualcomm's Vuforia Augmented Reality SDK

NerdHerder runs on the iPhone 4s, the iPad 2, and the new iPad. It will run, albeit slowly, on the iPhone4 (making it less playable on some of the more complex levels).

Nerdherder is an experimental game, created by students in the Augmented Reality Game Studio at Georgia Tech (made possible through the generous support of Qualcomm). This collaborative studio brings together students from the Georgia Institute of Technology, the Savannah College of Art and Design (Atlanta campus) and the Berklee College of Music.

Nerdherder grew out of our research into augmented reality game experiences, during which we created many different game prototypes (visit to see videos of the other prototypes)

Known Bugs:
- menu text too small on New iPad
- slow on iPhone4 (unfortunately we cannot exclude iPhone4 from the store without excluding other devices)
