N-iX team provided end-to-end development of Magic Chess. Throughout the cooperation period, we had to deal with changing requirements to fulfill the client’s vision of the solution.
We ensured easy and functional manipulation of chess pieces with the help of the Manipulator Marker. It enables the players to pick up the pieces, move them, and see each other’s movements.
Implementing real-time network solution made it possible to play the game with other players and manipulate virtual objects without any lags or network conflicts.
Additionally, we implemented the save state function, which makes it possible to resume the game where the players left off, as it loads the latest version.
Our team has dedicated special attention to the game physics to move the chess pieces naturally and make the realistic user experience.
Also, a mixed reality user interface enables the players to access all the game options via the MR menu in conjunction with the chessboard.
The team developed several variants of the game. For instance, in Zero Gravity chess mode, all the pieces float away. Whereas in the Pawn chess mode only pawns are visible when the game starts, and then they switch to queens, rooks, and other types of chess pieces.
