You may remember Harebrained Schemes, creator of the recent Shadowrun Returns (which we Reviewed). Now, having succeeded in creating a quality Shadowrun video-game, they’ve set their sights on the tabletop market.
Golem Arcana will take Tabletop combat games and combine them with technology to create a novice-friendly Tabletop game in which the rules are dealt with for you. To achieve this, the game will utilise the TDI (tabletop digital interface) stylus which will be able to recognise tabletop elements such as the golems and tiles and display relevant stats. It will also deal with rule elements such as attack calculations — essentially bringing the rule knowledge requirement to a minimum. Never again will there be an arguement over whether or not that figure was actually in range or not — or at least that’s the idea.
This isn’t all the app will do, it will also allow you to download new scenarios, content, tournaments and even save your game — no more trying to time games around when you have to leave, just save and go!
