Are you interested in trying out Niantic’s new game before it launches next month? They’ve released a Peridot Demo, called Snap-A-Dot, which you can now try online!

Before you play the Snap-A-Dot Peridot Demo, check out the official launch trailer!

This Peridot Demo is a bite-sized version of the game, that’ll let you play around with one of the magical creatures—known as Dots.

You can try out the demo online here. It is powered by Niantic’s 8th Wall technology, which we’ve covered before on our website.

8th Wall is Niantic’s augmented reality platform for the web, which is what powers Snap-A-Dot. It’ll let you play around with ‘Kee’ the “first ever” documented Dot creature.

Because it is a web-powered augmented reality experience, it requires no download! This demo is available to try for iOS and Android devices.

The game is fully launching worldwide on May 9th later this year. It’ll be a free-to-play title, inspired by Tamagotchi and other similar pet-focused simulation titles.

You can pre-register for Peridot now on the Google Play and App Store.
