Sensible Object launches second Kickstarter
Company behind hit AR game Beasts of Balance returns to crowdfunding for expansion
Sensible Object is launching the second Kickstarter campaign for its award-winning augmented reality game Beast of Balance.
Beasts of Balance is a game of dexterity, strategy and creation, where players take on the role of Divine Creators, tasked to play solo or with friends to build worlds and reach high scores by stacking magical Artefacts into towers. Everything added to the tower interacts with a world that evolves on a wirelessly connected digital device, and to succeed, players have to keep their tower and the ecosystem of their world in balance, stacking all 24 pieces and caring for the virtual beasts they create.
This year's campaign introduces a series of expansions to Beasts of Balance, including a new competitive gameplay mode known as Battles and gorgeous new physical pieces to collect. Battles gives players an adrenaline-filled new way to play with the 24 pieces in the core game, adding even more depth, variety and value.
Alex Fleetwood, founder and CEO of Sensible Object, said: "We had an incredible experience with Kickstarter last year. 18 months ago, we were a start-up team with nothing but a prototype. Thanks in large part to the support of the Kickstarter platform and its community, we were able to bring this ambitious, groundbreaking game to life. Having shipped the game on time to an amazing response, we're ready to take things to the next level. Our players and backers have been hungry for new ways to play and new pieces to collect, and we can't wait to share our work with them."
In Battles, two to three players each take on the role of a Divine Creator of a single region: Land, Sea or Sky. The aim is to fill your region with powerful beasts while stealing and destroying those of your opponents.
“We are huge fans of cooperative gaming, but our customers have expressed requests for a competitive mode of gameplay, and so Battles was brought to life,” added Fleetwood.
The Kickstarter campaign launched yesterday and runs until 7 August. Learn more at beastsofbalance.com.
