SwapBots are three-part toys that players can build however they see fit. Then, they can capture them using their tablet or phone’s camera, bringing their creations to life and playing lighthearted minigames with them.
The three pieces of each of the SwapBots can be put together however the player likes. each section comes with its own look and abilities, so putting different pieces together will result in different abilities and looks within the game. Tentacle legs will shoot bubbles, metallic arms will punch, and various other powers will be tied to each piece.
Player creations can be used to battle another player’s SwapBot, using their combat abilities to see who comes out the strongest. Players will also be able to play several other types of minigame with their SwapBot, and can customize the environments they live in as well.
Nine SwapBots will be available at launch, with more planned for the future. SwapBots is set to release this year, and is currently raising development funds through Kickstarter.
