Storyline

“Warning: Approaching Game Island.” 

“The game is Capture the Flag Tag. 10 flags. 10 teams. Each team must collect all the flags without getting tagged. Once you put your helmet on, you cannot remove it until the game is over. May the best team win.”
 
With the helmet on, the island comes to life with Augmented Reality. This is going to be fun.
 
You run to your base, but your helmet keeps on glitching. You hope it doesn’t last, otherwise you’ve got no chance of winning.
