"No messy paint. No toy guns. Real, military-grade equipment is used to create the ultimate in realism. In fact, the same guns used in LiveBattle are employed worldwide by law enforcement and military to train their personnel," claims the company's Web site.
Up for a game with some tough ladies? A San Diego gaming company is giving party hosts the opportunity to face off against LiveBattle Girls or each other.
The interactive gaming company LiveBattle USA operation is purely mobile, and the company’s name tells the story. It may look like laser tag, but it's not. Instead of lasers, Live Battle's technology employs “ghost bullets,” which can be fired long range, according to the company.
"No messy paint. No toy guns. Real, military-grade equipment is used to create the ultimate in realism," claims LiveBattle USA's on its Facebook page
. "In fact, the same guns used in LiveBattle are employed worldwide by law enforcement and military to train their personnel."
Another novel aspect of the company's business model is the LiveBattle Girls, women who can be hired to help out with the gaming process or even be played against.
LiveBattle says their game can be played on all terrains and in all weather conditions, and that they bring everything to you you'll need: Weapons, battle opponents, obstacles for the battle zone. The local branch is based in La Jolla
and has recently set up at the Marine Corps
Air Station Air Show, on the Midway
at a Yelp
party, and at SDSU Aztec football "tailgates."
The party ain't cheap, though.
"Our standard birthday party package for 10 to 20 players for two hours is $495," said LiveBattle USA
vice president Ryan Dickie
. "We also do corporate team-building events, school/church fundraisers, etc."
