The SquareOne Console Launches On Kickstarter With Urban Rivals and Cthulhu Wars Licenses
Wizama has launched their Kickstarter campaign for SquareOne, the latest gaming console to blend board games and video games. To coincide with the launch, the company has also announced exciting licensing deals with Urban Rivals and Cthulhu Wars as both games will be featured on the system. SquareOne is available now for the next four weeks.
Urban Rivals and Cthulhu Wars are hugely popular games with extremely strong followings within two very distinct sectors of gaming. Urban Rivals is a fan favorite, multiplayer, virtual trading card game. Now for the first time, Urban Rivals, the virtual card game will transform into a board game through the SquareOne system. Cthulhu Wars is a fast-moving RPG strategy board game about the end of the world that features monster figures. With SquareOne, Cthulhu Wars will now look, feel, and play more like a video game, offering a new and unique immersive experience. These are just a few examples of the diverse games SquareOne has to offer and the potential that the console is bringing to the market.
In addition to this, the SquareOne console includes original creations with authors and studios such as Crystal Bay (Roberto Fraga), Broken Thread (Thomas Russier), and Element Fight (EODE Studio). Wizama also has its very own studio dedicated to developing new and exciting games in-house. The system even offers games on demand, where players have access to a large selection of all types of games available directly on the SquareOne console. Furthermore, SquareOne comes with 15 traditional board games and dice games fit for the whole family.
Wizama plans to cater to all ages whether that be sharing a game with your kids or competing with your best group of friends. The console will provide a range of games that are perfect for large gatherings. The SquareOne system is inspired by traditional board games while also infusing the perfect amount of the video game experience. SquareOne is the first of its kind and allows you to experience your favorite games like never before.
Unlike other gaming consoles, it doesn’t require additional devices like a TV or computer to play and you don’t need game disks, smartphones, or additional applications to play either. Making it super convenient to play with your kids or friends around the same table. The product, which was first unveiled last year, also won multiple awards including, the CES Innovation Awards 2019 in “Gaming”.
The board’s surface is a large touchable screen with movable borders that increases the playing area depending on the game. The game board sits vertically, which allows for players to experience virtual gameplay while also enforcing the human connection of traditional board games. Watch each board game come alive with the built-in touch screen, and its connected objects including cards, dice, figurines and the world’s first connected dice track that enable players to both physically and digitally interact.
Users can also accessorize the smartboard, with the overall border of the device being fully customizable. You also have the option to save games and resume your play whenever you please. To become completely immersed, the SquareOne board includes high-quality audio speakers for sound and music during playtime. Furthermore, you will be able to play together remotely with your favorite game partners wherever they are.
