About

Determine the fate of a party of scoundrels in an RPG adventure that brings tabletop gaming to life in PlayStation VR.

Table of Tales: The Crooked Crown for PlayStation VR VR is an RPG that brings a magical table to life before your very eyes! The Table grants you the power to guide a party of Scoundrels through the dangerous and intriguing realm of the Crown Islands! YOU will determine the fate of the Scoundrels through tactical, turn-based combat! YOU will roll dice and determine whether they overcome the challenges they face or find ways to deal with consequences when they can’t!

What is the Table

The Table is a magical, mechanical artefact that allows the seated player to experience the myriad worlds and adventures it contains. When its power is harnessed, the surface of the Table comes to life, transporting the player to a world of swashbuckling and sorcery! Players can navigate the perils of The Jewel Islands by sailing around the high seas of The Crown Archipelago, watching as the table magically fills with water that becomes a raging ocean! They can decide who to befriend and who to betray, engaging in daring combat, calling on the strengths of each member of the party to pull off magnificent combinations and seize GLORIOUS VICTORY!

Who are the Scoundrels?

  • Nuna – There are four scoundrels that could make up your party. First, Nuna! We’re fairly sure that’s not her real name, and we’re not sure how she obtained her powers of dark sorcery – tearing the fragile fabric of reality and letting whatever lurks beyond through!
  • The Hammer – Next we have the Hammer. She’s the tank – the meat shield. The muscle. Every party needs one! The Hammer likes getting things done. Particularly when those things involve using her fists. She’s brutal, fast and unforgiving.
  • Thomas – Up next is Thomas, a genius when it comes to potions, but far from savvy when it comes to…well, just about everything else. He’ll mix up anything for anyone…for the right price, of course! The Scoundrels would be lost without his healing tonics and experimental mixtures. What else would they do when they need to blow things up?!
  • Horatio – Finally, there is Horatio Nine-Lives the Thrice Blessed. No, it’s not a real title: not a real title; he came up with that name himself. What he lacks in humility he makes up for with charm, finesse and enough flashy moves to keep an entire platoon of the City Watch distracted!
