15th October 2013, Warrington, UK. Nomad Games today announces the beta release of Talisman Digital Edition via Steam Early Access, following its recent successful Greenlight campaign. Available for PC, the developers are inviting players old and new to contribute to the ongoing development of the digital version of the cult fantasy adventure board-game by Games Workshop.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original RPG-style board game's first release, Talisman Digital Edition (DE) is the latest incarnation of the series from Nomad Games and builds on the well-received single player version, Talisman Prologue, which was released last year for PC and mobile. Talisman DE now includes local multiplayer for up to four real or AI players and a variety of play modes to satisfy long-standing fans and newcomers to the franchise alike.
The original Games Workshop game has become a perennial favourite amongst board-gamers and continues to enthral players of all ages with its magical themes and evolving gameplay. Talisman Digital Edition faithfully recreates that experience for enthusiasts, nostalgic players and the new breed of digital board-gamers by continuing the classic adventure in a fun and accessible way.
Nomad Games' co-founder, Don Whiteford is delighted about the game's appearance on Steam: “We were thrilled to have been voted through Steam's Greenlight process and have the opportunity of releasing the game via their exciting and growing Early Access programme. We're hugely grateful to the Steam community and fans of Talisman for getting us this far and would like to call on their support again now to help us build on this great start and create the game that Talisman's fans and its rich history deserve. We will be adding online multiplayer over the coming months, as well as other great features, and we look forward to hearing everyone's feedback as to what else they'd like to see in the finished game.”
Talisman Digital Edition is available now on PC via Steam Early Access (store.steampowered.com/app/247000/) for $14.99 (£11.99) and all customers will also receive a free copy of Talisman Prologue.
A standalone edition of Talisman Prologue is also now available on Steam (store.steampowered.com/app/258200) for $6.99 (£4.99).
