Description

"FusionPlay – Heroes” is the first mobile NFC card game. It’s played with physical cards, each containing a Near Field Communication chip. These chips enable communication between the playing cards and a smartphone. As soon as you slide a card under the smartphone, it appears on the screen of the phone. Then the app processes the actions and visualizes the results. The game itself is a duel between two players like a digital-analog homage to beat-em-up games of the 16-bit era. Each player chooses one of the 4 heroes and uses the heroes’ unique skills to win the battle. The game is fast paced and always motivates to play “just one more round”. All components are pocket sized, so the player can always have them with them.

History

The original concept was created in 2011 by Konrad Kunze, a passionated game designer. The concept was pitched in 2012 to IT Sonix and became a game project. For separating the game development from other software development segments of the company, the brand "FusionPlay" was born. It took several years until the technological challenges were solved and the development was finished. In 2016 IT Sonix finally announced partnership with smart-TEC, the manufacturer of the NFC playing cards, to work together on bringing the game to the public.

The game is now scheduled to launch in Summer 2018.
