It might be a case of good timing/bad timing. Good timing in that many of us are stuck in lockdown and looking for free ways to pass the time with friends, but bad timing in that Playground hasn’t launched out of Beta for the crisis.
Not heard of either? These are computer programs that let you emulate many tabletop games.
It’s a challenging ask as games are so very different. However, these simulators use common elements and then let users expand their functionality with additional downloads.
Tabletop Playground has another sly trick planned to woo over Tabletop Simulator customers by making sure it offers better support for these downloaded modules. Tabletop Simulator’s mods only come from Steam whereas Playground plans to include Mod.io, a cross platform Mod API. You can already have a rummage of Playground’s Library.
It’s expected that Playground’s Beta will run until May 3rd and then launch fully in Q2 of this year.
You can download Tabletop Playground from Steam.
