24 October 2023 – Redboy and the Adventure Crew, an upcoming interactive play set by Playmix Interactive, is set to revolutionize playtime for kids worldwide. This innovative Kickstarter project encourages creativity and imagination, seamlessly blending figurines from the game with a child's own toys to embark on limitless adventures.
Redboy and the Adventure Crew redefines playtime by providing children with an interactive world where their imagination knows no bounds. The game includes a versatile mat adorned with action tiles, setting the stage for thrilling quests and encounters limited only by the depths of a child's creativity.
Redboy and the Adventure Crew explained:
RPG in toy form - No smartphone or app needed. Simply pick a character, connect them to the Smart Base, and start playing on the included Battlerealm play mat.
Meet the crew - There are 4 different characters, all with interesting powers, quests, and fully-voiced interactions! Go on wild adventures with Redboy, Silver Star, Big Iron, and Gear Grinder.
Bring the Action - The Smart Base (included) features bumpers that let you bump and bash your toys together. With sound effects and lights, you can craft epic battle sequences.

How do you play Redboy and the Adventure Crew? It's child's play!
1. Roll out your Battlerealm Play Mat and pick a character to play as.
Play anywhere you want with the Battlerealm Play Mat
2. Tap your chosen character on the different zones on the map to trigger a corresponding event. This can be talking to other characters or a Discovery Zone that teaches you more about the story of this universe. Your character can collect different magic powers. These magic powers completely change your sound effects.
Land on a zone and trigger a corresponding event.
3. Tapping your character on a Monster Zone will initiate a fight. Inspired by the age-old game of "bash your toys together", Battle Mode uses the "Attack" and "Defense" bumpers on the Smart Base to engage in an epic duel.
There are four different characters to choose from! The Starter Kit contains both Redboy and Silver Star, but you can also get Gear Grinder or Big Iron if you choose the Collector's edition (which comes with a special KickStarter-exclusive Hyperspace Silver Star.)
