Developer Tin Man Games have released a new trailer for their upcoming virtual reality (VR) tabletop role-playing game (RPG) called Table of Tales: The Crooked Crown. This adventure RPG will see players sat before a table which comes to life in virtual space, offering a uniquely immersive tabletop RPG experience.
Table of Tales: The Crooked Crown is a tale of swashbuckling and sorcery in which the player must lead a band of adventures on an epic question. Seated at the mysterious, magical table, the party you take control of will relay on your skills and knowledge to make tactical combat decisions and determined the scoundrels’ fate. Featuring a story that is shaped by the decisions you make, the title is promising to be highly repayable with a number of different outcomes to explore throughout.
Of course, no tabletop RPG would be complete without a Game Master and in Table of Tales: The Crooked Crown players will have the pleasure of meeting Arbitrix – an unconventional narrator who will guide players through their adventures. Tim Man Games’ Lead Writer Ben McKenzie explains a bit about what to expect from Arbitrix, saying: “There have been lots of Game Master characters in games, but many are very antagonistic and only have one goal: to kill you. A big part of Table of Tales is bringing to life a Game Master who is more like real-life GMs: they challenge you, yes, but really they’re on your side. They love the game and want you to have the best and most exciting adventure possible. That’s Arbitrix.”
Tim Man Games have been working on the title for over 18 months and have a deep history in building deeply intertwined tabletop gaming experiences and this new venture in VR is no different. “Our history is deeply intertwined with tabletop gaming with many of our releases reflecting this, so we’re really excited to be taking the next leap forward in this area of gaming by making a really fantastic digital tabletop RPG for VR.” The team write on their blog.
Table of Tales: The Crooked Crown is due to release for PlayStation VR in Q3 2018. VRFoucs will be sure to bring you all the latest on the title in the future, so stay tuned for more. You can see the E3 2018 gameplay trailer for the title below.
