Trading Cards Brought to Life in AR by Australian Devs in Genesis

One of the more popular things to develop for augmented reality (AR) titles seems to be trading card games (TCG), and Genesis embodies this to the full with its ability to bring creatures to life before your eyes.

It may surprise you to find out that the two creators of this pretty advanced AR TGS are two 18 year olds. What Genesis is all about is “if Mortal Kombat and Pokemon had an augmented baby”. There is a real-time combat system that has been integrated where you can control the character movements as you strategise attacks.

There are both dungeon and arena game modes. In Dungeon, the player is put to the ultimate test to see how many waves they can stand against the dreaded Genersis AI, and Arena requires players to battle against their friends who are also playing the videogame. There is a stretch goal that will take Arena from 1v1 to 2v2 and 3v3.

If you thought this was going to be the same as those other trading card AR title, then you better think twice: “Genesis isn’t like any card game you’ve ever seen. With Augmented Reality users experience an addictive skill based real-time battle system. Each character is equipped with a myriad of attacks some reliant on brute force and others on mystic or dark capabilities allowing for a perfect combination of skill, strategy and foresight.

“If crushing friends in the arena isn’t your preferred option, the game also compensates for the competitive lone-wolf with an elite single player dungeon mode that will test and hone the skills of any avid gamer.”

The campaign has currently surpassed its initial goal of $30,000 (AUD), and is on $38,191 and counting with 19 days to go.
