Catan is one of those games that almost everyone knows. Over the years, thanks to its attractive mechanics, which combines strategy and role-playing, it has managed to sell millions of units around the world. What if some technology was put into this game? doA dose of augmented reality, perhaps? This is what Tilt Five, a startup founded by a former Valve engineer, wanted to do.

The company has announcedCatan—Tilt Five AR‘, a reimagined version of the classic game that puts augmented reality center stage for an “immersive” experience. This novel variant will not come to computers or consoles, but will continue to be played as usual on the table, yes, with a series of additional accessories.

AR goggles, retroreflective board, and a “wand” controller

It consists of augmented reality goggles, a retroreflective board, and a “wand”-style motion controller. Thus, players will be able to see “3D holographic environments” in the development of the game on the island, where they must build their new home. They will be able to play with friends in the same place and even, the company assures, with AI-powered virtual opponents.

The proposal, without a doubt, is interesting. Not only because of its essence, but because of the differential way in which augmented reality glasses will work. These, unlike traditional options, will cast light onto the retroreflective dash.
