Maker’s Tale gameplay takes place on a tabletop board game that has sprung to life in the imagination of young boy named Maker. It features Fantasy RTS like combat in a sandbox environment enabling the player to rebuild the level during play. Maker’s Tale is currently very early in development, you can see the latest Maker’s Tale build in action in our latest videos.

Excellent! You were really able to take a unique angle on the strategy genre by combining the building and strategy/board game genres. The graphics look really good, and the lighting is awesome! Tracking.

I see a typical game play out as gather resources, build structures, build army, take over map. RTS style views and controls with very small maps with low unit numbers.
