GDC 2014 - Talisman: Digital Edition is Looking Mighty Awesome

Posted by Rob Rich on March 19th, 2014

Talisman: Prologue was a pretty great adaptation of GamesWorkshop's rather popular board game, but many seemed to view it as incomplete. I mean it was purely a solo affair, so that sort of makes sense. However, now Nomad Games is getting ready to release Talisman: Digital Edition and appease those who were hoping for a more multiplayer-driven affair.

Talisman: Digital Edition will still let you play against AI if you'd rather keep things solo, but it also offers asynchronous play. In case you're wondering how that works with spell interrupts, it basically uses a combination of push notifications and a timing window for players who want to try and counter an opponent's casting. Nomad also has plans for continuous support by adding new cards every few weeks, making new expansions available every few months, and even offering a curated library of user-created content.

You should be able to find Talisman: Digital Edition on the App Store for the iPad at the end of April for $7.99.

Rodeo Games Licenses Unreal Engine 4 for a Mysterious New Games Workshop Title

Posted by Rob Rich on February 12th, 2014

Rodeo Games (Hunters: Episode One, Hunters 2, Warhammer Quest) has recently announced their licensing of the Unreal Engine 4 for an as of yet unnamed project.

Very little is known about this new game aside from the fact that it's going to be turn-based strategy, has to do with one of Games Workshop's properties, is the first mobile game to announce the use of the newest Unreal Engine, and is due out in the second quarter of 2015. More details will no doubt be made available over time (I'm crossing my fingers for Death Angel, but that's really just a pipe dream), so keep an eye on 148Apps for new announcements!
