Welcome to episode 26! Today I’m joined by Carl Pinder and we’re going to talk Virtual Table Top – specifically the one Carl’s developing himself, Tabletop Connect 3D. Tabletop Connect is a 3D virtual tabletop that lets you connect with your friends to play RPGs just like you’re at a real table. As we were recording, the Kickstarter for Tabletop Connect 3D, which has only been active for three days, hit 30% of its goal!
Carl’s got some innovative and ideas for this VTT that are well worth checking out, and offers access to the alpha version as soon as you back the project.
We talk VTTs, gaming in the 80’s, Carls lengthy experience working on some very well known video game titles and of course his goals and ideas for Tabletop Connect 3D.
I’d also like to mention that this year’s Extra Life campaign is live! I’ll be playing table top games for not 24 hours straight, but 25 hours straight to raise money for Children’s Hospitals. Please check out my Extra Life page and if you have a few bucks, I’d greatly appreciate your sponsorship!
This year I’m treating this one (granted full) day event as my own little convention. I had the somewhat crazy idea to reach out to game publishers and see about getting some prize support for those folks who’ll be joining Team Troll and themselves raising money for Extra Life.
I want to give a huge shout out to Stronghold Games in the person of Stephen M. Buonocore. Stephen stepped up immediately and offered several titles from the Stronghold Games catalog. Please head on over to the Stronghold Games site and check out their summer releases, Vampire Empire, Voluspa, Time ‘N’ Space and the next expansions for Revolver 1.
Even cooler than that – right now you can grab Space Cadets: Dice Duel as a LIMITED RELEASE of SIGNED COPIES by the designers Sydney and Geoff Engelstein. This will only be going on for a couple of weeks and it’s happening before you can even pre-order the game.
