Hi, my name is Justin and I have been a huge tabletop gamer for as long as I can remember. Does it have miniatures? do you play it on a table? Then I'm there! So why a terrain randomiser app? Well I wanted to create something new, cool and really useful for the hobby I love. As almost everyone has a smart phone or tablet, I thought why not put this technology to good use and enhance the hobby experience.
This app will keep your table top fresh, with the terrain never ending up in the same place (no favorite hill for your opponent every time!). I wanted something that would keep playing fun, quick to set up and easy to do, and this app does all of that.
Best of all, because it's completely random you could even use it for tournament play!
The problem -
How to quickly and fairly randomize your terrain for battle without messing about with tape measures and dice?
The solution - Introducing the worlds first Total Wargaming App
How does it work?
The Total Wargaming App is a simple and effective solution to speeding up your gaming experience, helping to cut out any needless contentions over what goes where, letting you get stuck in to the fun bit - playing the games! Simply take a photo of your gaming area, including any terrain you want to use and then follow the easy instructions, leaving you with a fully randomised table ready to play in just 5 clicks.
Simple solution just use the app in 5 clicks, copy the terrain placements from the app on the real tabletop and your ready to play!
But It doesn't just stop there:
With your help, we can make something completely new and further enhance tabletop gaming, as this app can be used with almost any tabletop game with any terrain, sci-fi, fantasy and modern. this app will be available for both android and apple IOS and works with any size screen. Will be made for iPhone, iPad, tablets,android mobile and further improved. We will also put this on iTunes, google play and launch its own website.
TWA also works with non standard gaming set-ups too! want to play on a round table? No problem. Want to play on a table the size of a football field? Easy. Want to play in space? Harder to get there but the app will still work.
We would love to add all our backers to our credits, without you this would not be possible.
Your name will be in the app in the credits and on our website. Thank you so much!
Names in credits will be in order of when backers backed. So first backer would be first, second backer would be second on credit list etc. :)
3 point auto connect - Simply draw up to three points on the screen and watch the app do the rest.
Works on any shape - Your in total control of your gaming area, just mark out where you want to play, be it a circle, square or a smiley face!
Easy and Fun to use - Each step comes with on screen instructions as well as a PDF guide with full instructions.
Works on any size - Overlay multiple photos and outline existing "placed" terrain as immobile to build a board as big as you want in stages.
Your imagination is the limit - Set up multiple tables at the same time, add objectives into the setup, use anything you can take a picture of as table or terrain!
Theme switch - Changes main menu icons from fantasy to futuristic.
Background color select - To match your tabletop color your playing on.
We want to include a dice roller, army painting feature and army list creator, giving you all the tools you could need (aside from the models themselves) for a fun hobby experience.
Any of the stretch goals achieved will be included in this app on the main menu.
Dice roller - there are already loads of apps that roll dice for you, so what makes ours special? Well this has all be designed with wargamers in mind, so it's designed to cope with large numbers of dice, plus you can tell it in advance what counts as a success and it will let you know how you've done instantly.
Army list builder - as this app is designed to support all wargames and not just a select few, this tool allows you to enter as many stat lines as your game needs, as well as special rules and abilities for easy reference during the game. Including a handy drop down menu for each entry so you can see stats at a glance or go into more detail as needed.
Army Painter - stuck for ideas, or maybe just want to know how it will look before covering your expensive army in paint? This painting tool allows you to take a photo of your models and then overlay different color schemes so you can see just how it will look when finished.
Risks and challenges
In terms of challenges, time is the biggest factor. We want to create a simple and functional product that's beautiful, useful, and fun to use. This all takes time. Time to write code. Time to test the product. Time to implement feedback. Time to create a beautiful app.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
