WebXR makes updates instant and broad compatibility possible, which means more players for you, and guaranteed support for your platform--whatever that is. Cross-platform functionality has been baked-in from the beginning!
Now working on virtually all platforms:
Compatibility with online-go.com was in the original design, and compatibility with other servers will be added according to demand. Whether your opponent is in VR or not, you can still enjoy your game with the sense of distraction-free presence the game deserves.
The most compelling KataGo Interface imaginable--an instructor and an opponent who is always available. Finally, you can feel its presence! Instead of dealing with a cryptic UI, get clear, simple insight and feedback.
Get an immediate intuitive understanding of the board through KataGo's eyes with live generated heatmaps.
See what moves were impactful by seeing the effect on win probability each move made.
See the predicted score.
All of this is available in any game, whether reviewing alone, playing with KataGo, playing with a friend, or spectating.
Because every possible platform is supported, so is every possible input. In a Quest? Use controllers, or controller-free hand tracking, to grab & place stones. VR "Laser" controls, mouse, joystick, and arrow keys also work!
Volunteer work from incredible 3d artist @AdamR. A full custom goban, bowls, and stones. (3d artist? Contributions welcome!)
The vision of this app is to play on a mountaintop, by a lake, in the room of Yugen--wherever you want. Context matters--get lost in the game. Or watch the sunrise together. Or enjoy the stars. :)
Feel like playing a 31x31 game? Or going historical and trying out a 17x17? Now you can blur reality, and really experience playing on one, feeling the sense of scale in front of you.
Currently features working KataGo (AI) integration! See live generated heatmaps, get suggested moves, or just play a game with a superhuman intelligence. Or watch it play itself!
Online-go.com integration will mean watching pro-games (or any game) in a whole new way--sitting by the board. See full KataGo stats+heatmap. Hang out in VR and view the online-go.com kibbitz. Live audio-hangout with other VR viewers. Even watch a simultaneous video livestream.
