The WORLD'S FIRST
MAGIC LANTERN game system
Play etherial tabletop games made of light and shadow with the Game Lantern™ - the world's first magic lantern game system.
A magical gaming experience for all ages is achieved as patterns of shadows cast from the removable panels on the patent-pending lantern form the "game boards" upon which you play.
The Game Lantern is being made in Canada/USA from wood, paper and a single LED by artist and game maker, Paul Warne.
an ancient kind of game console
Similar to a videogame console, a variety of games for all ages will be available to load and play on your Game Lantern system.
Each game will include its own lantern panels and game pieces.
To load a game into your Game Lantern you simply slide in the game's panels into the four sides of the lantern.
Each game is being developed specifically for the Game Lantern and will feature new play mechanics unique to the lantern's use of light and shadow.
PSYCLE - AWAKEN THE SUBCONSCIOUS
PSYCLE is the first title to be released for the Game Lantern.
It is a cooperative divination game for 1-4 players (ages 7+) mixing strategy, chance, and the unconscious mind.
In Psycle you will journey into the realm of dreams, strategize with fellow agents, free sleeping spirits trapped in their own nightmares, and protect our world from a dark poison spreading across the realms.
"...like Ouija meets Castle Panic..."
In exchange for assistance freeing them from a rotating maze of shadowy delusion, the rescued spirits deliver messages to the players from across the far reaches of the subliminal.
What message will the dream spirits deliver to you?
