According to Nomad Commercial Director, Don Whiteford, “We are keen for Talisman and board game fans to try our Prologue version, to which we plan to add multiplayer modes soon across platforms that include smartphones and tablets, in addition to the PC. Talisman Prologue is designed for fast gameplay and is a great introduction to the game’s characters and rules. We’re looking forward to getting the community involved”
"Nomad games wowed the crowd with Prologue at Games Day, and they loved the video game version of our much loved and seminal property Talisman." said Games Workshop Licensing Manager, Owen Rees. "We can't wait to see it online very soon."
“The reception has been fantastic” according to Nomad’s Don Whiteford ‘”Those who played it in the eighties are now keen to play with their own children, and our Prologue version provides a quick and fun way to enjoy Talisman.
