Description

ESPIONAG3 is a mini-game that showcases the essentials of playing games made for boARd 3D - the augmented reality gaming platform. It is set in a fictional 1940's city, that is different each time you play the game. The city generator is easy to control with just a press of a button, so you will never have to play the same map again. All boARd 3D games are based on our own unique interaction method, that is achieved through the connection with a boARd, a paper with printed graphics that is spread across the play area. This boARd allows you to view it's surface using your digital device's camera from a very close distance. Within a few moments you will be able to master this unique interaction method and play the game. A "boARd" is required to play the game, so we suggest that you download it and assemble it yourself, so that you can start playing right away, and then order it from our store if you need a durable version.

Thanks for the comment.
Would be interesting to know if you have tried it physically, and to hear about your experiences.
As certainly, building the boARd yourself using the provided kit requires an effort :) I have translated the order page and we have no trouble sending oversees during this sort of testing phase, if you would like a nicer version ;)

In fact, it is really at the same time more than a game (a platform for future games), and at the same time less than a game (in terms of current content and UX) :)
