We’re making digital companion tools for RPG Junior, a board game that introduces families to the rich and varied world of tabletop RPGs. RPGs like Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) can be notoriously inaccessible; between the long, complex rulebooks and the confusion of many actions happening simultaneously, inexperienced players of any age can easily find themselves overwhelmed.
We’re exploring three possible directions. The first is audio-visual enhancements to increase player immersion. The second is accessibility tools to make the game easier to pick up and play. And the third is gameplay expansions to enrich the experience in ways that traditional tabletop RPGs wouldn’t normally attempt.
