ScanSpace, in collaboration with Paracosm, launched aÂ Kickstarter campaign for an online service that lets users scan and upload real-world environments, turn them into game levels, and share with other players. The company is hoping to raise $125,000, and will add virtual reality support as an $800,000 “stretch goal.”
Multiplayer support will be added at the $1.5 million “stretch goal.”
The project launched March 16, and is scheduled to run until April 15 with a delivery date of March 2017. However, it has raised lessÂ than $2,000 over the course of its first week,Â which does not bode well for the success of the campaign.
The toolset will allow players to be their own game designers, a project spokesperson told Hypergrid Business.
Users will have a choice of pre-built game templates, and will be able to customize those templates.Â Paracosm, whose 3D mapping technology allows capturing of large indoor spaces, is providingÂ 3DÂ modelsÂ that can be added to the environments.
