Embark on a Virtual Reality adventure like no other. 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! The Table is presided over by its Game Master - Arbitrix. She narrates your tale, pushing your party into sticky situations that they must talk – or fight – their way out of. Take the helm and lead your party of scoundrels through realms of adventure, investigating the misdeeds of their pasts and facing up to terrible dangers! Table of Tales is interactive fiction for virtual reality - the choices you make impact everything that happens. Inspired by the nostalgia of classic tabletop role playing games, combat is highly strategic and turn-based, featuring a large host of custom miniatures, skill checks and ability cards. Venture through a world of swashbuckling and sorcery as the magical table transforms before your eyes. Where will the table take you next? There's only one way to find out.


Table of Tales: The Crooked Crown represents an exciting new chapter in Tin Man Games's journey. The team's history of developing titles that explore the overlap between tabletop and video games comes to a head with this virtual reality project.
