Revolutionary New Wargame Hitting Kickstarter Soon

Rift Zone: Contact

A revolutionary miniature wargame blending reality with AR, making wargames accessible to anyone, anywhere! Only minis and mobile devices are required! Brought to you by Boosted Reality, LLC; Gamers making games for EVERYONE.

Everything you love about tabletop wargames made even better! Playable by anyone, ANYWHERE, and upgraded with the visualization and processing power of your smartphone! Welcome to the Rift Zone!

Rift Zone: Contact is the first chapter of the Rift Zone Odyssey, a fast-paced, tactical miniature wargame that utilizes Augmented Reality to capture the battle between the United Earth Defense Force, and the Scry’Ox Collective as they vie for control over the distant world of Proxima Centauri. As both civilizations, unaware of each other, searched for a new home, their quest was rewarded, but with a cruel twist of fate.

With no way to communicate, first contact between the human starship and a Scry’Ox Queenship ended in fiery catastrophe. Inevitably, war was on the horizon, and a habitable planet was worth any price. Humanity and the Skry’ox spent a decade preparing to claim the planet for themselves. The UEDF starships were augmented to slip between dimensions. The Scry’ox perfected the art of folding space to make the jump across the galaxy. The reaction caused by the competing technology of the arriving fleets created an inter-dimensional shockwave, ripping the very fabric of space itself. With both fleets destroyed by the reaction, ground forces were cut off from their home worlds. Now, war rages on the fungal planet, and something lurks on the other side of the rift that looms in the sky above, something that lays a much stronger, and more ancient claim to this place.

Empowered by RFID-Augmented game pieces that accumulate XP, vibrant map tiles, and the Rift Zone: Contact app on your phone, you hold the outcome for the battle over Proxima Centauri in the palm of your hand! Pick a side and fight. No rulebooks. No rulers. No dice.
The calculations are done for you. All you have to do is win.

Join the battle! Choose a side, share with your friends, and help turn the tides of war!
