Roll for Mixed Reality
Mixed-Reality (MR) is a growing area of interest in the tabletop board game market as a way of heightening the ways we can interact with our physical games. Traditional table-top roleplaying games (TTRPG) such as Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) and Warhammer are well known for their immersive phenomenological narrative experiences (White, 2014) and engaging analogue interaction with tangible game pieces (Liu et al, 2021). MR offers new ways of building on these elements to enhance the immersive and haptic interactive gameplay experience while retaining the popular elements of TTRPGs. This research explores the technical possibilities and limitations of holographic headsets such as the Microsoft Hololens with the purpose of enhancing immersion within encounters in the TTRPG experience.
