The main product of eelusion is eevoo, a geo-social mobile game that allows the player to claim squares of our world on a virtual map index. eevoo can be thought of as a blend of foursquare and Sim City, but differing in its gameplay genre, user experience and high-end 3D. Players can hold and develop squares, build houses in real places of the world
and develop them through the ages, all while competing with other players. The augmented reality feature is the highlight, allowing users to visualize the world they built cooperatively through the unique lens of their camera. In short, eevoo is aiming to make the world an interconnected playground.

To broaden the universe of eevoo and its visual appeal, a cosmos of mini-games (like eevoo JUMP) has been developed, thereby connecting more players to the universe of eevoo and bolstering clever cross-promoting platforms.
