Sculpto is an augmented reality team-based multiplayer game made in Unity using Vuforia for Android devices. According to the brief from a live client from the Dream Reality Interactive studio, our task was to create an AR game for a specific target audience with a strong focus on its replayability potential. Since my team’s target audience was “audience participation” and the game was meant to be played on only one device, we came up with a fun team guessing game combined with 3D sculpting features.

  • Gameplay Loop:
    • Declare at least two teams
    • Select a category
    • Sculpt the object from the same category while the rest of the team is trying to guess the name of the object under a certain amount of time
  • Controls:
    • Use the touch screen to remove the pieces of the starting 3D shape
    • Use the colour wheel to paint parts of the object to invoke more associations with it
    • Use the undo button to reset the cube to the state before the last adjustment
    • Use the pause button if necessary (the interface gets covered to minimize the possibility of cheating)
  • Rules:
    • Each team has two rounds to gain points
    • The round ends either by the team’s successful guess or when the timer reaches zero
    • After each round, players can see their current points
    • After each team has completed two rounds, the final score will reveal the winner
