    Pokémon GO – One Year On

    Monday 31st July

    About this time last year, as part of a staff profile on myself, I was asked to comment on the new phenomenon known as Pokémon GO, which saw hordes of young (and old) players roaming the streets, staring intently at their mobile phones (more so than usual) catching elusive digital creatures in a new augmented reality game. I joined them for a couple of weeks, and the knowing nod of a fellow player across a road became almost a common rite of friendship born out of the often solitary pursuit of gaming.
