Award-winning board game specialists, Thunderbox Entertainment, are finally releasing their flagship title, Tsuro – The Game of The Path, on Steam this week.
The premise of the original board game is simple – place your tile, move your stone, stay on the board. Where things get tricky is that the other players will be doing the same thing, and could well send you over the edge in the process.
The relaxing, path-building gameplay is like a holiday for your mind. With crafty AI to play against, you’ll find it strategic enough to give your little grey cells a good work out, with just enough challenge to tickle your noggin without working up a sweat.
All the features of the original mobile version are there, including the exciting new Fuse Mode, where you have to build your path quickly, to avoid your stone getting blown up. And, of course, the graphics have been completely overhauled to take advantage of your computer’s extra power. Models and textures have all been reworked in stunning high definition, and fancy effects like volumetric lighting illuminating the desert mist take Tsuro’s Zen tranquillity to the next level.
There’s also cross-platform multiplayer, so you can do battle against your friends on the mobile and VR versions of the game.
Tsuro is launching as part of the Steam Digital Tabletop Fest this week, and aficionados can join the folks from Calliope and Thunderbox, for a fascinating dive into the world of Gateway Games – those simple, yet deep experiences that get people hooked on the hobby of board gaming.
Tsuro will be available on Tuesday the 20th of October for Windows, OSX and Linux, for the price of $9.99 / €7.99 / £6.99 with 25% off for launch week!
