“Take a seat at a mysterious table, abandoned in the attic of your aunt”, they said. What could possibly go wrong after all? Well, if you play your cards right, not a whole lot. Unless you choose poorly, head down the wrong path, or worse, end up getting annihilated in combat. A grand adventure awaits in Table of Tales: The Crooked Crown!
Now, as with any good tabletop RPG, this too has a rather unique Game Master: meet Arbitrix, a GM who is – supposedly – on your side. According to the developer, Tin Man Games, at least. I don’t quite trust that claim though. Or rather, I’m hoping Arbitrix will be at least a tiny bit mischievous. Just saying. Could be… interesting.
Table of Tales invites you to take a seat at a mysterious table, abandoned in the attic of your aunt. Only you have the power to unlock the table’s true nature – it’s a magical living boardgame!
Right. Anyway, after donning your PlayStation VR headset and taking a seat at the magical table, you’ll find yourself in charge of a party of scoundrels, their lives in the palm of your hands, every decision potentially causing one or more to meet their untimely demise. Maybe. Even so, there’s definitely potential for fun in Table of Tales: The Crooked Crown; even if you end up getting everyone into fate-changing trouble long before the credits roll. At least you’ll know to make different decisions next time, choices shaping the story and all. Oh, and be sure to say hi to Arbitrix for me.
