Eon Alter Set To Bring Tabletop To iOS
Jimmy Evans / 5 years ago
We have all been there, no matter if we are nerds or just the old school style of gamers where we have enjoyed, not the world we are in, but the one we can create in our minds. Tabletop was one of those things that was only really limited by what the mind could create. Sadly, as the computer world has grown, very few games offer such a wide social aspect that used to come with three or more people chilling around a table and then just “letting the dice roll”. There have been several attempts at making games that people feel they could become part of the world within, most of these were thrown under the title of “RPG” or “MMORPG” but none of them really came close, in my opinion, to what a tabletop game was all about.
With the introduction of the likes of iPhones and iPads, it seems that Apple would be interested to capture another gaming aspect that has since yet escaped them, who do they have to thank for this possible conquest? Eon Altar. What is this many of you cry! Well, I shall not tell you until you have a look at this gem of an introduction.
Eon Altar is about five months in the development line and it looks sweet already! This might be the thing that will encourage me to actually go for an iPhone, even if I feel like I’m following a trend. The game itself is very close to a typical RPG with a set of styles and the like, but I can see coming from a vast amount of modding, expansions and holy heck was that a walking tiger?! But anyways, I digress. I personally find the game to be very promising and the fact that it is almost a local LAN party right there on your phone it seems to me that this would show the way towards something beautiful. I’ll keep you posted! That is for sure!
