ODENSE, Denmark, Sept. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Today Vivid Football launches on crowd-funding site Kickstarter. It is going to be the first true American Football Boardgame – combining gaming with authentic football strategy.
We are setting a new standard with a hybrid software-/board game, combining on- and off-field football strategy, with hands-on changes that can alter the outcome of the game.
Players will become coach and manager of their own football team where they can choose the formations on the board and decide the plays on their device (Tablet or Smartphone). Once this is set, they can view the board game come alive through Augmented Reality.
Michael Peric, Inventor and Co-Founder of Vivid Football explains: “Vivid Football will have something which I have missed when playing football games, both videogame and boardgame. The combination or “feeling” of reading your opponent when standing across from him, seeing your strategy dismantle his game plan when playing a boardgame. At the same time adding the dynamic effects of a videogame that makes it all come alive. That made me come up with Vivid Football. The game will challenge the players’ ability to execute a long-term strategy, whilst keeping his cool in game situations. The game will also have lot of off-field in-app features that let the player improve tactics and set the long-term strategies.“
Vivid Football will offer players the intimacy and direct response of changing football players positions physically prior to a snap, and experience the direct outcome of the following play.
A psychological game will emerge between the two players during matches, when game plans are sized up, and one must change tactics to get the advantage.
During games, the two opponents will stand at each end of the board and view the board through their respective devices. The device will act as their digital huddle, where plays are selected, and the game is executed.
