Gaming isn’t all computer gaming. No, good sir, there are also many board-gamey folks out there who hold board gamer conferences and play board games. And Talisman Prologue, now on Steam Greenlight, is giving a fine middle ground for this genre of gaming.
This will be the first in a series of games based on the Talisman board game, which the developers explain for newcomers as “a game like no other—indeed, it is no ordinary game at all, but a fantastic quest in a world of magic and monsters.”
“As play progresses, a story unfolds from turn to turn: a heroic epic of brave deeds, of daring encounters, of treasures and magic, of battles fought and sometimes lost, but always a tale that challenges and enthrals!” they say. “In Talisman Prologue, you take the role of 10 characters on a series of epic quests. Fight your way through hordes of monstrous creatures and cast powerful magic spells along the way.”
