Game Information
Short Introduction: 
An augmented reality game, where you can become a super hero.
non-digital (board game, card game, physical game, etc.)
Web standard (Html5, Java, JavaScript, Flash)
Platform note: 
Brief Play Description: 

You have ventured into Hero Net, which requires you to create a Superhero profile in order to become part of the network. Wait... there are no such things as superheroes. Well that’s where you are wrong! Anyone can be a Superhero especially you!

The more people you do good deeds for, the stronger you get but only as long as the people go on to this website and give you a Prestige vote. However if you get more Notoriety votes, you might end up becoming a Super villain instead.

In order for you to get people vote for you, you have to create a deed, and place the url address of your deed at the place of the “deed” or “crime”.

A deed is an event, good or bad, which you create to get attention to yourself as a super hero. It could be a bowl of candy, a helping hand or a prank. Just make sure that people will rate you as either good or bad based on your deed.

But with great power, comes great responsibility. No one can know the real identity behind your Super Hero. If you reveal the identity of a super hero or super villain, they will be destroyed, and they will lose all their points.
