The release of 'Pokemon GO' showed that location-based augmented reality games can be successful and played by millions.

However, storytelling and game design practices for such games are not widely known yet. Observations and experiences gained during the design and development of location-based AR game 'Monster Buster: World Invasion' will be shared in this talk.
