Toyforming Studios has recently launched their premium debut AR-based title Toyforming for both Android and iOS. With this story, let us explore its background, unique features as well as price on both platforms.
Background of Toyforming Studios
Kaz Sasaki owns the independent video game development studio: Toyforming Studios. According to him, the Japanese game business lacked innovation and was falling behind other global markets that were advancing the games industry with innovative new concepts. He made this decision after working at Sony Interactive Entertainment for over ten years.
He quit Sony in 2021 and established his own company Toyforming Studios, and created his own video game after spending years conducting research and picking up new abilities. He is currently working rigorously on Toyforming, an advanced terraforming and augmented reality (AR) planet-building programme that was recently released.
About the Game
It was initially introduced at Japan’s biggest Indie game conference: BitSummit X-Roads 2022, and won 4Gamer‘s prestigious Media Highlight Award. Toyforming lets you create your own reality by converting your drawing into three-dimensional figures that uniquely interact with their surroundings.
You can plant these drawings on the planet and be creative to create your own planet full of vitality. You can create dinosaurs, trees, and humans, as well as a myriad of distinct animals that can be placed on the planet to interact with each other. You can also use AR to integrate all these creations into real life.
Unique Features of Toyforming
Unleash your Creativity
Draw whatever you like, and watch how Artificial Intelligence fills life. Your artwork can be altered and tailored to be as realistic or abstract as you choose. Your creativity is the only thing that can limit the level of sophistication you can introduce to your planet.
Toymaking is about having fun for children and adults while encouraging creativity. Family and friends can play together to build a colourful and distinctive world. You can achieve anything you desire with the unlimited capabilities of the AR and A.I. combination.
Immerse into an Interactive A.I powered world
Toyforming’s AI will try to deduce what you were drawing to bring movement and behaviour to your creations. All the artwork will come to life and interact with the environment once it is placed on your planet.
Certain items can alter the world’s environment, such as the moon, which may turn the planet into darkness and cause you to see things in a completely different way, or clouds, which can cause rain and cause the rivers and ocean to overflow. Toyforming items will have unique behaviours, so start drawing them to discover how they come to life.
Preserve and Share your Art
You may store all of your designs to utilise your preferred creatures and objects to create a myriad of unique planet. You can also show your art pieces on other people’s planets if you share the saved data with them. There is even an option to make the user interface invisible so you may capture the ideal screenshot to post online.
Play with reality through AR
Toyforming offers a variety of backgrounds, but you can also activate AR Mode to view your planet in various locations, including your living room, bedroom, backyard, or even outside in a park or shopping centre. You may even use yourself to take a screenshot of your world.
What is the price of Toyforming, and when will it be launched?
It has been launched globally for both Android and iOS. It is priced at $7.99 and is available for the global audience. You can also visit their official website for more information and follow us to stay updated.
Toyforming is a very ambitious project of a seasoned game dev making a bold move to innovate in the Japanese and global game development markets. It claims to provide an exciting entry point for all the parents looking forward to introducing their kids to the world of AR and A.I through interactive toymaking.
