Games Workshop’s® Talisman® - (by Thumbstar/Nomad Games)


Quote:
30 years young, the prologue to the seminal fantasy adventure board game now available on tablets!
The legend begins with a single-player series of adventures designed to invite both veterans and newcomers to explore the land of Talisman. While multiplayer gameplay will be available in upcoming expansions, Talisman Prologue focuses on creating narrative depth through its single-player campaigns.

The story unfolds as the player rolls dice to move around the outer, middle, and inner regions of the board. Each space will require the player to draw a card or resolve a special effect, leading your hero to encounter monsters, discover friendly followers, and gather treasure.

A fantastic quest in a world of magic and monsters!

Features:
  • Based on the Talisman board game - true to the original for your tablet
  • Classic board gaming on the move | fun brief sessions anytime, anywhere
  • Single player play* | explore the land of Talisman
  • 10 classic board game characters | experience Talisman coming to life
  • 50 quests to play through | hours of gameplay to enjoy
  • Original soundtrack | enjoy the sounds of Talisman
  • Multiplayer game is scheduled for release summer 2013

Releasedate:
  • 28th February 2013

You do realise that Talisman Prologue is just the single player, as in without AI opponents version right?

The full multiplayer version is still being hacked and might be called Talisman...

Can the thread name be changed to Talisman Prologue to better reflect this?

I'm not familiar with this game so I don't understand the single player with no ai. Is it solitaire, pass and play or what? Looks like a great game but no ai is a deal breaker with no multiplayer included. In fact if its what I think this could be a terrible move releasing an incomplete game.

There is a video of the PC version being played on Youtube.

In Talisman, the players compete with one another to get the resources necessary to go to the center of the board and win the crown (I think, long time since I played it).

In Prologue, the developer made quests for each of the different player characters so you will be the only one roaming on the board and acting on the events of each space. Sort of like if you got the boardgame and had nobody to play with...
