AR Game Development Made Faster With Templates From AREYES
by Oleksii Surnin on May 29, 2023
We are an innovative team of experienced developers who have been involved in multiple AR game projects since 2019. Millions of users all around the world enjoy playing our games, that’s why, from year to year, we work hard to introduce something new to the AR community.
As developers, we understand the challenges involved in building AR games from the ground up. That’s why we are eager to share our hard-earned internal knowledge with others, aiming to greatly simplify the AR game development process on the Meta Spark platform. By doing so, we hope to push the boundaries of Social AR gaming and make it more accessible to all enthusiasts.
This conceptual breakthrough motivated us to create AREYES SDK. This solution helped to optimize the resources and accelerate the development process itself. This was a great step toward better optimization, and we’ve finally managed to find out how to take more benefits and introduce them to a wider community!
The Gumroad community was the first to get familiar with our AR game templates. Our initial goal was to research how our solutions can help other developers save resources and optimize the development process. And what we’ve got was the introduction of a bunch of new AR titles by more than 2,300 individual developers and around 100 agencies and studios!Yahoo Sports, M&Ms, Nissan, Selfridges, and other big brands were the ones that also liked our instruments!
Now, it’s time for you to take a closer look at our templates for AR games and learn more about how you can help us to scale this niche and how to spend days instead of weeks on game development!
In the AREYES Studio, we believe that variety is what contributes to continuous progress. That’s why we do not stop on a single concept. Our specialists constantly work on various ideas and try to bring them to life to ensure a better optimization process for developers and development studios.
Our range of AR game templates is quite rich because we want to ensure their compliance with different popular types of projects and compatibility with the most unique ideas. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most popular AR templates from AREYES:
This is quite a popular concept of an AR game for mobile-based platforms. Gamers enjoy using various virtual tokens in 3-dimensional digital space to run and pass through different barriers. To do this, players need to move with their heads to specify the running direction and blink or use other mimic gestures to avoid different barriers.
In games with the Eater template, users need to determine which items can be eaten and which ones can not. After this, they just open their mouths to catch the necessary items while they are falling from the upper part of the screen.
The Flappy Bird template is relevant to games where users control the movement of a virtual bird or spaceship using head movements or taps to collect in-game rewards, bonuses, coins, etc.
The collector template design is quite similar to the Eater concept. The only difference is that the user doesn’t need to catch items with one’s mouth but uses a special basket or box. The movements required to avoid false items are basically the same.
Games with the sorting template are virtual spaces where users turn their heads to define the direction of falling objects and sort them into specific baskets.
In the 2D runner template, in-game actions are synchronized with the player’s blinks or taps. By this, the user will be able to manage one’s character and avoid different barriers to get to the finish quickly.
From navigating through asteroid fields to discovering distant galaxies, the Space Voyager template provides a versatile foundation for creating captivating AR games. With the Space Voyager template, you will be able to develop a game, where users will drive the spaceships with head movements, shoot the asteroids, and collect rewards.

What Are The Benefits Of Our Templates?
In a nutshell, the development of the simplest AR game requires the involvement of a team of at least two specialists — a middle/senior developer and a technical artist. Except for paying a reasonable fee for their services, which amounts to around $2.5-5 thousand, we also pay our time, since the developer needs from 1.5 to 2 weeks, while the technical artist — 3-5 days.
With our templates, we can save much more resources! The same benefit is relevant to you, regardless of whether you are an individual developer or representative of a development studio, because you will receive the same result as when you would pay $2.5к and spend 2 weeks.
