NerdHerder is an exciting new kind of motion-controlled table-top augmented reality puzzle game. Players help nerds avoid managers, deal with annoying paperwork, overcome their fear of sports, and chase down donuts, coffee and techie toys!
1. Print out the game board from http://micronerd.net/print to get started.
2. Point your phone at the gameboard and see a different office environment for each level of the game, right there in the world!
3. 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.
4. Exercise your planning and action skills to herd the nerds back to their cubicles!

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 http://argamestudio.org to see videos of the other prototypes)
