Drakerz Brings The Digital Card Game To Your Webcam

With games like Hearthstone bringing more players to the digital card game space every day, Drakerz seeks to take things to the next level.

Using webcams to bring cards to life in an augmented reality battleground, Drakerz is looking to provide an immersive DCG experience by bringing cards to life before battle. While the full experience requires a webcam, players can also opt to play without one if they are at a PC that doesn’t facilitate integrated play.

While the concept isn’t completely new (Eye of Judgment for PlayStation 3 comes to mind), it’s something that may indicate where things could be going, especially with virtual reality on the rise. Drakerz is currently available on Steam.

 

Our Take
I'm always excited to see established genres trying new things. We'll see if systems like this one are unique, user friendly, and add something special to gameplay – or just gimmicks to differentiate products in an increasingly crowded DCG market.
