WARENA is an augmented reality project I worked on in Cologne Game Lab, during my Erasmus scholarship.

WARENA is a strategy game, for two players in which each player has to control three units that can change their stats during the game, and try to destroy the three enemy units. The game is played using smartphones, a physical board and physical cards. The players have to look through their phone’s camera to the board, where the units will appear on the screen. All the interaction with the board and the units is made using the touchscreen of the phones.

The technology we used is the Unity engine, together with a plugin called Vuforia. The game features local network connection with a lobby system, so connecting with friends in the same room is really easy.

The repository of the project is closed, but you can download the master branch here.

I also did a blog during the development of the game. You can see it here.
