First revealed at PAX East 2013, Eon Altar, the cooperative role-playing Tabletop Video Game, is going to Gen Con in Indianapolis this August!
Eon Altar invites five friends to fight through dungeons to uncover ancient secrets and compete for glory and wealth, using smartphone handset to control your character’s actions, and a shared tablet to adventure through dungeons as a group.
“The Kingdom of Gray lies cradled by the mountains of the Western Spine, from Castle Gray, to the town of Barrier on the eastern border of the Black Sands. In the mining village of Tarnum, a cave exists, said to descend to the foundry of Myrth the Creator God - the birthplace of man. In hopes of discovering fame and fortune, adventurers line up in droves, to navigate the treacherous paths, the darkness, and worse. Few return. Will you?”
Eon Altar is partnering with Mesa Mundi Inc, a multitouch solutions provider, to show the game on their 50” Touch Tables, a dream accessory for any tabletop gamer.
Tobias Drewry, President & CEO of Mesa Mundi Inc. " Mesa Mundi is very pleased to be part of the Eon Altar debut at Gen Con. Eon Altar brings a fresh approach to co-op video gaming through the use of a shared space. Because our touch tables are designed to provide multi-user interaction, Eon Alter is a perfect fit for this technology."
Players can check out play schedules at www.gencon.com/events and join us at the Indiana Convention Center, August 15-18!
