Adding an augmented reality layer to the Beasts of Balance

client: Sensible Object


Expanding the world of tabletop gaming

We developed an AR extension to the "Beasts of Balance" game that lets players record and share videos of their gameplay, and turns their physical creations into a vibrant augmented reality world.

Augmenting shareability

How can Augmented Reality improve the experience of an existing game without altering its core gameplay? Beasts of Balance is one of the most acclaimed connected games of 2018, so when NEEEU was invited to research and develop an augmented reality layer for the game, we jumped at the chance. Through agile prototyping, we found that augmented reality elements could make recording and sharing the important moments of gameplay fun, without distracting from the game itself.
