Eye of Torment (a bit like Star Wars Chess)

An interactive card game coming out for the PS3 reminds me of the holographic chess game played in Star Wars. You know the one between C3PO and Chewbacca.

It works by using the Playstation Eye peripheral camera, which over looks a 9 Fields tablemat featuring a 3x3 rectangular grid. Players place their carefully selected decks on the board and the actions of said cards are carried out on a connected screen in real time.

I’ve never been a massive fan of card battle games being even geekier than I can bare. Developing a medium that had previously never been explored with this type of interactivity is interesting but I’m gonna have to give it a Chewbacca, “Mmmmuurrrrrrrr!”

Go play chess instead.
