January 10th 2013 – Following hot on the heels of the recently released Talisman Prologue game for solo players on PC, Nomad Games is pleased to officially announce it is working on a full online multiplayer and AI version of the game. It is due for delivery in the middle of 2013 and a variety of pre-order options are available on www.talisman-game.com. Those who would like to purchase the product on Steam can vote for it in the Greenlight section of the Steam website.
Commercial Director Don Whiteford stated: “Talisman Prologue is a great way to play the game on your own and as a way to learn the rules, but there is clearly a huge demand for a version that delivers a multiplayer experience that is representational of the physical board game. Sales of the Prologue version are helping us reach our goal of delivering what we are calling ‘Talisman Digital Edition’, so we’d encourage fans to buy Prologue now or select one of our Talisman Digital Edition pre-order options from the game website.”
Talisman Prologue is already available as a download in German and English via the game website, www.talisman-game.com, and is available through online digital stores including Gamers Gate and Desura. A Polish only version is available via CDP.PL (formerly known as CD Projekt) on their digital platform, reached via http://www.cdp.pl or http://www.cdprojekt.pl
Talisman, the magical quest game is a classic board game that has been enjoyed by fantasy fans for nearly 30 years. As one of a variety of characters, which includes warriors, rogues and magicians, the player embarks on a perilous adventure to find and claim the Crown of Command, a magical artefact with the power to destroy any rival and make the bearer the ruler of the kingdom. It’s a game of skill and strategy combined with the luck of dice and cards.
About Nomad Games
The studio was formed in 2011 by a small team of veteran developers who are passionate about Talisman and have dedicated themselves to self-funded development of the title. First the team worked hard to secure an exclusive license with Games Workshop, developing an early iPad version that clinched the deal. Now based in the sleepy village of Lymm in Cheshire, the Nomads hope to get people even more involved in development of the next game, and bring some of that Talisman magic to a much wider audience.
