November 23rd 2012 – Today, Nomad Games announced the release of Talisman Prologue for PC on www.talisman-game.com, the first in a series of games based on the million-selling fantasy adventure board game ‘Talisman’ by Games Workshop.
Talisman Prologue is designed to let players learn the full potential of ten key characters through a series of interlinked, narrative quests. ‘This release is a totally new spin on the board game,’ explains Design Director Carl Jackson. ‘It’s a solo play mode based on the Revised 4th Edition rule set, and it presents players with a series of challenges and adventures that test each character’s special abilities to the full. There are 60 Quests, each of which has three achievement levels. Players will learn to trade gold and objects, build an arsenal of weaponry, use magical spells and encounter a whole host of mythical characters and creatures’.
‘It’s really gratifying to see this first release from the guys at Nomad so soon after we announced our partnership’ said Jon Gillard, Games Workshop’s Head of Licensing ‘ We think this is a wonderful kicking off point for the franchise in the interactive space, and we’re looking forward to the stream of other Talisman products over the coming months and years.’
The game is available as a download in German and English via the game website, www.talisman-game.com, and will also be available through online digital stores including Gamers Gate and Desura. A Polish only version will be available via CDP.PL (formerly known as CD Projekt) on their digital platform, reached via http://www.cdp.pl or http://www.cdprojekt.pl
Nomad Games will use Talisman Prologue as the platform for designing multiplayer modes and is busy working on versions for smartphones and tablets.
