TaleSpire is not a video game, but rather a powerful tool to create virtual versions of tabletop RPGs and play with other players. The project was developed by Bouncyrock Entertainment studio, and its creation was possible thanks to, among others, successful crowdfunding on Kickstarter.
TaleSpire is not limited by the rules of any existing RPG; nor is it tied to a specific universe. It's up to the players themselves to set the rules of the game and to decide whether their campaign will take place in a fantasy universe, a sci-fi universe, or a world mixing elements of both. It is also up to the game masters to fill the boards on which the game will take place with rich content and to run the narrative. They have a lot of possibilities, as the authors give them hundreds of figurines and props, as well as special tools that allow them to present the action in a truly cinematic way and, for example, select shots, manipulate lighting and even change the soundtrack. What's interesting is that multiple players can share the role of gamemaster and work together to both create the world and carry out the actual gameplay.
The action takes place in turn-based or real-time mode. Watching the action from a top-down view, we take control over virtual miniatures symbolizing our heroes and move around the locations, completing tasks prepared by the game master (or masters), facing the challenges prepared by him and, consequently, pushing the plot forward. There's also the option to skirmish with your opponents, as well as an extensive character development system. Like in classic tabletop RPGs, the success of many of our actions is determined by the results of dice rolls. It is worth mentioning that the game masters can modify their worlds after the adventure begins.
TaleSpire was created for multiplayer. Players can freely share their board designs with each other by sharing them in text form.
TaleSpire has nice, detailed graphics. Both the detailed and varied boards and the detailed miniatures of the characters impress.
