Road to Gen Con 2016: Boss Monster in Virtual Reality at Premieres
Brotherwise Games announced the convention premier of the Virtual Reality (VR) version of their hit tabletop card game, Boss Monster, at this year’s Gen Con, Aug. 4-7 in Indianapolis. Convention goers will be able to experience the tabletop game in virtual reality.
Brotherwise partnered with VR pioneer AltspaceVR to bring Boss Monster to the virtual table. AltspaceVR made waves in the gaming community in 2015 with their VR Dungeon & Dragons sessions, but Boss Monster VR represents the first virtual reality version of a tabletop game with complex pieces, cards, and interactions.
The tabletop game market has been experiencing double-digit growth for several years, and the population of gamers continues to grow. VR offers a new frontier for game developers, and AltspaceVR allows multiple people to be together in virtual space, which is ideal for tabletop games.
Brotherwise and AltspaceVR will demonstrate Boss Monster VR at booth #2343 during Gen Con.
The game is already available online. You can sign up, sign in, and play now. Boss Monster can be played in AltspaceVR in full VR mode using Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, or Samsung Gear VR. Players without VR devices can play Boss Monster in desktop mode on their PC or Mac, using an audio headset with a microphone.
