The Pokemon Go craze is dying down, according to some reports, but the mobile game that took the world by storm in July is still one of the most popular iPhone and Android apps around. Niantic’s hit game inspired many people to come up with Pokemon Go-related content. In fact, one Belgian teacher came up with a great Pokemon Go-like “product,” that’s going viral in the region.
Aveline Gregoire is a primary school headmaster who put together an online game that’s similar to Pokemon Go. But rather than running an app on iPhone that uses the GPS and camera to send you around time chasing for objectives, this game only needs Facebook for communication purposes.
Called Chasseurs de livres, or Book hunters, the game is about hunting books in a Pokemon Go manner.
“While I was arranging my library, I realized I didn’t have enough space for all my books. Having played Pokemon Go with my kids, I had the idea of releasing the books into nature,” Gregoire told Reuters.
The game is pretty simple: all you have to do is look for hints and hunt the books. As soon as you read the captured book, you release it into the wild and post about it on Facebook.
Created a few weeks ago, the game already has more than 40,000 people following it on Facebook.
Gregoire is apparently thinking about developing a mobile app for the game, given its huge popularity.
