The Inceptor is the first ever connected, portable, smartphone hardware created explicitly for gaming.
We’ve reduced professional outdoor laser tag equipment to the size of a keychain.
Attach the Inceptor to your phone and start shooting – up to 50 meters away – with a precise and well-collimated hitbox. Our hardware has been tested with hundreds of gamers and pro-gamers.
We’ve implemented 6 highly sensitive, infrared receiving sensors, allowing Father.IO to offer unmatched, full gaming immersion. The inceptor sensors offer wide angles of reception (almost 90º), both horizontally and vertically, so a shot can be detected from any direction or angle around your Inceptor.
With local broadcasting, lag times and bandwidth usage are reduced to a minimum.
With an RTT of only 100ms, it feels like you are playing against an online server having just 30 to 50 ms of latency.
The Inceptor works with all iOS phones & Android with Bluetooth Low Energy. Windows phone is available as a social stretch goal mission.
QUICK MATCH MODE
Create local indoor/outdoor battle instances, challenging nearby players equipped with the Inceptor to a team or free-for-all deathmatch. Additional game modes, such as capture the flag, are available as stretch goals.
With Quick Match, you’ll be able to have quick one-on-one, two-on-two or small group laser-tag matches. All of the fun, no strategy required
The Planet is your Playground:
Real world buildings have an impact on the gameplay. Control an Area with a university to give yourself a research boost. A pharmacy or hospital in your Area results in faster recuperation. Claim an Area with a bank to securely store resources.
