The creator behind holochess, Phil Tippett, is looking to create his new game with the help of Kickstarter.
HoloGrid: Monster Battle is a game based on the iconic holochess and uses augmented reality to create a board game with monsters looking to battle their way through the enemy lines. With $30 grabbing you the full game, you can enjoy the games app thanks to a physical game board, 2 packs of cards to play the AR game and a custom stand for your tablet or phone.
The games stretch goals will allow players to enjoy new minions, spells, and champions while reaching a total of $750k will enable the developers to include the game on the PC platform, while a million dollars will move the game to AR and VR systems like Meta Spaceglasses and the Oculus Rift.
