Incantor Launches on Kickstarter, Featured in Mashable.com
Imagine a world where magic was made real. A world where you can waive a wand and make things happen. Sound far fetched? Think again. Earlier today, Betaspring alum MoveableCode launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise some cheddar to support their newest game, Incantor. Incantor's magic wand tracks motion and gestures, and is connected by bluetooth to your smartphone. It can identify what spells have been cast and who the spell targets, enabling magical battles and quests to take place in the real world.
Very cool to wake up this morning and see that Mashable.com picked up the story, complete with video of people using the magic wand.
Help bring Incantor to life by supporting the Kickstarter campaign! The project's $100,000 fundraising goal will fund the game's roll-out, and get wands - along with their magic - into the hands of supporters by the end of the year. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/moveablecode/incantor-magic-made-rea...
Incantor is a new kind of mobile game built on a simple premise: Magic Made Real. Designed to appeal to fans of games like Magic: The Gathering and World of Warcraft, Incantor is played with a magic wand, a smartphone and friends. All Kickstarter backers will receive a variety of in-game and real world benefits.
