Cambridge-based mobile games developer PlayFusion is bringing the physical trading card game based on its first release Lightseekers to mobile and PC.
The digital edition of the game will co-exist with the physical edition and is set to launch in June 2018. Players will be able to scan their physical cards into the digital game and use them online against opponents around the world.
PlayFusion is pushing the competitive side of its physical card game with regional and national tournaments to be held throughout 2018. The developer is also launching an Organised Play Program, which will work with game stores in the UK to provide prizes for weekly Lightseekers TCG tournaments.
Ambitious in scope
"Although very ambitious in scope, we see 2018 as an opportunity to further accelerate the already rapid growth of the Lightseekers Trading Card Game," said PlayFusion CEO Mark Gerhard.
"Our community has spoken, and we listened. With today's announcements, we're further pushing the limits of what our Enhanced Reality Engine™ will deliver for the game’s community, local game stores and the future of connected play overall."
PlayFusion launched its Lightseekers TCG back in May 2017 through a partnership with Tomy. The original Lightseekers game was a toys-to-life mobile title, which was funded via Kickstarter in October 2016.
