Since the emergence of D&D and table-top games, people everywhere have enjoyed playing with beautifully sculptured miniatures on table-tops in turn based games. However, TabletTop Interactive is aiming to give this genre a technology upgrade and modernize the gaming experience by drawing upon a host of new technologies. By taking advantage of tablets like the iPad and a new breed of large touchscreen devices, TTI is working on shifting the table-top to the "tablet-top".

The result is a new class of games in which players use miniatures to move about and adventure in digital worlds via touchscreen gestures.

This is achieved through the use of special TabletTop Miniatures (TTMs) with conductive bases that allow each unique figurine to be recognized and tracked in the digital game world.

Players hold their character with one hand, whilst using the other hand to pan around - and hence walk or run - through large environments. Two handed control facilitates intuitive combat and interaction with in-game characters that are viewed from a top-down perspective.

Each Champion plays very differently with unique gestures required to drive that character. For example, swipes represent Ether Blade cuts delivered at a distance by the Sentinel, whilst touch and drag gestures are required to direct the Archon's power beam.
