VoxStory might look a little like Minecraft but it’s an evolution of an older game; the traditional tabletop.
Using the system, the GM crafts the world – or uses one provided – and using free apps, players build their avatars and control their interaction on a shared screen.
In virtual tabletops, players might describe their characters and then drag a token or digital model into place. In VoxStory, the ambition is that you can watch the action play out in a somewhat more cinematic way.
The site is now open in beta and there’s a chance to win a free copy.
If you don’t win, VoxStory will not become a financial burden that everyone in the gaming group needs to pay. It’s only the world creator, the GM, who needs to have a paid account. Anyone else invited to play can do so for free.
While the site has just opened in beta, the social media accounts for the platform have been live for a year, and I can find YouTube demos from team members that date back even earlier.

As you might expect, the current goal is to get the platform Kickstarter ready, and the site suggests that it is a few months off.
