Oust.me is an application that makes connecting users to locations fun. It's one of the only online games that motivates its players to get out into the world. Oust.me describes itself as a geo-location game, one that sorts destinations into territories and turns it into a strategic game between a user and their circle of friends. Oust.me synchronizes with applications such as Foursquare, Gowalla and Facebook. The developers of Oust.met are looking to synchronize their application with other geo location applications in the near-future. The intent of Oust.me is for its players to have fun. The Oust.me team understands that locations can be fun tokens for players to engage with, and the location owners understand that it can lead to new and exciting visitors coming through their doors. In addition, Oust.me is independent from its user's social networks, so players can engage into the game without interfering with their social circle. All in all, Oust.me takes the places that people visit and can transform them into an exciting and competitive game.
As of March 2012, Oust.me has hosted over 2 million"check-ins" at over 500,000 different venues. The teams claims that "The idea (for Oust.me) was born in Zagorje, Slovenia on the fourth of November, 2010. It all began with the paramount question: who will own the Bus Station Burek place? And the rest is history!"
Oust.me is a fun game that integrates the places that people visit into a strategic online game. It is a unique premise and one of the few online games that encourages its players to get outside in the "real world." The game is relatively simply, but can become a bit addictive among friends who travel around quite a bit.
The game is engaging and fun to play. Automatically the last 30 days-worth of locations will be credited to new Oust.me players' accounts. The game uses familiar maps and it's easy to see the locations and the territories of the Oust.me challengers.
Players can sign into Oust.me by syncing their Facebook, Gowalla or their Foursquare account. Upon authorizing the Oust.me application through these other applications, a player can begin competing in the Oust.me challenges.
Oust.me is free. The site even announces on its homepage that- "We give you our word - playing Oust.me is absolutely free!"
Oust.me is a fun and engaging game that can be particularly fun for groups of friends who travel in the same circles and who enjoy a friendly challenge that they can compete in while getting out and about as they normally do. It's not the typical game that requires hours of playtime in order to comprehend or master. Instead, Oust.me is a competition that people can do while going about their normal business.
