Beasts of Balance is a colourful strategy game which mixes tabletop with augmented reality, out tomorrow in select stores
Oh, that advert though.
With Christmas coming up we're about to see an influx of 'family fun' games, and Sensible Object's first game, Beasts of Balance is hitting UK stores tomorrow after a wildly successful US launch last week.
The concept is actually really neat as it mixes tabletop with digital play. By use of innovative augmented reality and a selection of smart objects, you'll merge the physical and digital as you stack the pieces together. Check out the advert below – it makes the object of the game pretty clear. Think Buckaroo feat Jenga and you're on the right path.
If you can stack the 24 pieces to create the best world AND avoid your tower tumbling chaotically back to its foundations, you win!
Beasts of Balance will be available November 24th in John Lewis, Harrods, and on the official website for £69. The app will be free to download through Google Play or the Apple/Amazon App Stores.
