Sydney-based game development studio Alta is exploring the possibilities of the still-young virtual reality platform, which is enjoying a rapid increase in prominence in the gaming world. Their game, A Township Tale – which is still in development – marries several distinct styles of gaming, such as open-world, sandbox, VR and social multiplayer.
As the title implies, A Township Tale takes place in a small town setting, with each individual participant assuming a certain role, such as mining or smithing. Ultimately, the aim is to assemble a cohesive community by having gamers carry out these roles. This in turn dictates the trajectory of the players’ lives and outcomes in the world around them.
A Township Tale is currently in pre-alpha stage, and was on display at RTX Sydney, where we were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to demo the game. The game is being developed for HTC Vive and Oculus. To learn more about A Township Tale, or subscribe to their mailing list to receive updates, follow the links below:
