Thunderbox Entertainment Show Ben Their VR Tabletop Gaming Set-Up

14 Comments

I got a chance to talk with Thunderbox Entertainment about their awesome take on a VR gaming set-up for Tsuro.

Yes, Ben may have looked like he was a bit odd there but this is a genuinely interesting experience that you need to try out. It’s certainly cool to be standing right in the midst of a board game!

Just watch those table corners Ben! Save your shins, lol.

How about Kingdom Death in VR, the area you play in has a stone face floor, it’s pitch dark except the lit lanterns on the gaming table?

Ben you’ve got to see if they can digitise the BoW main studio so you can use this for your weekender segments

Was skeptical at first thinking ‘how’s it any different to just playing the board game irl’, but seeing it in action it does look kinda cool.

When Ben was looking for the bee and Lloyd crept up on him, was anyone else half expecting Lloyd to prank Ben by jabbing him in the side or something to simulate the bee stinging him? 😜

As for other games, something like Necromunda or Mordheim would be really cool if they could get them to work, putting you right in amongst the fighters and being able to see what they can see (would have gone with Fantasy or 40k, but that would probably be too ambitious to pull off so probably best to play it safe and go with a small skirmish game 😉 ).

When Ben says “Don’t look at my ass”, I was expecting Lloyd to give him a slap on the arse or to give it a wee pinch. I think I need to take the sexual harassment training again, perhaps it could be programmed into VR…

Got to love where VR is going, the guardian system is very cool. I love the StarTrek bridge game in VR and it great to see more things going in this direction.

So funny watching Ben tentatively moving around the office letting out little squeaks of delight as he encountered something new! 😂😂😂

I think that is because he was remembering he was going to see stuff for the Badger game after the VR

Wow. I suspect it can’t be done at the moment by Chain of Command would be knockout.

This seems like it has a lot of potential, but I still say that there is room for the theater of the mind
