I’m Andrej Grek, founder of Estudio Antropo and the creator of boARd 3D, interaction technology we’re using in our games. One of these is  ESPIONAG3.

We’ve just launched our game CARTONEROS on Kickstarter - to validate our idea of bringing people to play together face-to-face.

THE GAME:

Cartoneros is a video game to play together like a board game.

Players spread out a game boARd, run the game on their mobile devices and navigate it by moving their devices around. We’re using augmented reality technology to display the game world as if it’s lying on the boARd. We believe that together we can create a new genre of games - and that’s why we launched a Kickstarter.

boARd is a large paper map, good enough for multiple people to use simultaneously. Our goal is to bring people together to play face-to-face.This way we react to the isolation that came with online games and want to help recover our gaming community & bring back local multiplayer.

Cartoneros is a tactical strategy game, where players compete over who collects the most cardboard. Players control waste pickers who understand the value of recycling. The goal of the game is to clean the environment and drive the recovery of the environment and the society & save the world.

KICKSTARTER PAGE:

The Kickstarter page with video is available via:   www.cartoneros.co/kickstarter/  or directly:   https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/antropo/cartoneros-the-new-augmented-reality-game-to-play
