During our visit to Gen Con we were able to land an interview with Harebrained Schemes Studios about their latest interactive offering Golem Arcana. Merging a miniatures board game with an innovative mobile app that leverages your phone’s computing power to handle the mechanics that lets you instead focus on playing, the interactive component is then layered over this interaction as the device then allows players to discover aspects of the fictitious world Eretsu as they battle their way across it. Their activities can even impact the story driving the setting (video below runs just under 8 1/2 minutes long). The fact that players can actually affect the setting in real-time is something that’s been lost in a lot of reviews so far, and in our opinion, is one of the coolest parts of the game!
