Origins of Maplio

Maplio is intended to be a real-time location based social network allowing users and players to interact with each-other and explore fixed digital objects in their immediate location.

The vision for Maplio was conceived during the first UK lockdown of 2020 as a mobile version of multiplayer games such as Roblox or Minecraft that could allow younger players to take their gaming outdoors and connect in parks and other open spaces to play games and engage with other augmented reality content.

Maplio was originally known as Maplio and there may be still be references to it throughout this website, though we are gradually removing them.
