The recently released Alpha trailer for the mixed-reality mobile game 'Brave Explorers' depicts a game with endless creative possibilities.
Created by Foxtail Games, Brave Explorers uses physical blocks and augmented reality to construct 2D gaming levels on its mobile app. With its toy sets, game levels are built in real life, while the app brings the game to life. After the gamescape is set, the user positions their smartphone camera over the scene and it is ignited with color and movement. Players are able to save levels and play them over and over or build new levels each time they play. The game's developers have also created a portable magnet set that can be played in the same way.
The advent of augmented reality and mixed-reality has blown open the possibilities of the gaming experience. Games like Brave Explorers are on the cusp of this movement and will set the standard for mixed-reality mobile games.
