The Tilt Five version will offer players an exciting way to immerse themselves in the captivating world of CATAN–watch the island come to 3D holographic life while keeping an eye on your fellow players around the table! 

The Tilt Five™ system was developed with gamers and tabletop enthusiasts in mind and invites players to level up game night with the magic of immersive 3D technology. Using proprietary AR glasses, a retroreflective gameboard, and a wand motion controller, Tilt Five players can explore holographic worlds with their family and friends together at home or online. 

Like the Catanians carving out a new home on the island, Tilt Five is developing a new and wild way to experience exploration, building, and diplomacy. Players can enjoy this immersive version of CATAN together around the table, remotely with other players around the world, or solo against classic AI opponents. Interact with the Catan island in new ways using the Tilt Five™ Wand and watch the island’s wildlife and environment spring to life in holographic 3D.  

"Tilt Five was founded by gamers," says Jeri Ellsworth, Tilt Five's CEO. "Our passion has been to bring the next evolution of gaming technology to fans of digital and physical games around the world. The magic of Tilt Five's technology is that it allows virtual worlds to co-exist alongside our physical one, with a solution that is comfortable, affordable, and easy to use."

“We are always looking for new and unique ways to expand the world of CATAN and engage our dedicated community,” says Arnd Beenen, COO, CATAN GmbH. “We’re excited that the Tilt Five system allows players an increased level of immersion where they can explore the rich environments and stories that CATAN is known for.” 

“Tilt Five offers players a new immersive way to engage with our games,” says Nicolas Godement, Twin Sails Interactive's Managing Director. “We’re excited to be at the forefront of this new technology, allowing players to explore the world of CATAN in holographic 3D!”
