BEASTS OF BALANCE

Adding an augmented layer to the best board game of 2018

Research , prototyping , implementation

The challenge: 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.

We developed an AR extension to the app that lets players record and share videos of their game that show a vibrant, alternative world appearing out of their physical creations.
