I'm currently building an Android game as a solo dev. It follows the trend of geolocation-based games (like Niantic), but with more unique aspects.
Anyway, I noticed that in Niantic games - Ingress, Pokemon Go - there's always a "check your surroundings" or "don't drive and play" kind of warning to the player in the splash screen. I'm afraid that it might have something to do with legal implications regarding people being trampled or fall to their death while playing.
While I'm definitely not a fan of losing my player base / cause pain and sorrow to their families, I still see no reason to add this to my game. Because let's face it, people promptly ignore warnings like that and play the way the want in the end.
My case is somehow different from most geolocation games, in the sense that one of its unique features is that you don't need to keep looking at the screen to play. In case it helps to clarify how it works here is the play store's link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.arvere.theforage (I'm not sure if this is compliant with SE's rules, if it isn't, I ask to some mod to remove it, please)
So, would there be any reason (besides legal security) to do this in a game like mine?
