Coatsink Software have revealed Augmented Empire, a virtual reality story driven tactical RPG that’s coming exclusively to the Samsung Gear later this year.
Augmented Empire is a story-driven tactical RPG set on the island of New Savannah, an isolated neo-noir city divided into three tiers by the ‘Citizen Grade System.’ While the citizens deemed of high societal value live in luxury at the summit, outliers and criminals are forced to live in squalor at the island’s depths.
From the armchair of their secluded hideout, the player uses simple look-and-click controls to instruct their team of 6 augmented misfits in a world rendered as an ‘augmented reality’ diorama before their eyes, while interacting with the office around them to investigate new developments, make calls, and develop the skills of their team.
You can check out some screenshots for the game below:
A demo of Augmented Empire will be available for gamers to check out at PAX East Boston (10th-12th March), SXSW Austin (16th-18th March), EGX Rezzed London (30th March – 1st April), and Pyrkon Festival Poland (28th – 30th April).
Augmented Empire is coming exclusively to the Samsung Gear later this year. You can find out more on the official website through this link.
