From tabletop to PC and back – adaptations of tabletop games
The first-ever WASD show has passed, but we want you to share the industry wisdom that was shared during the event if you weren’t able to attend. We upload all the wonderful discussions from PCGamesN Theater to our Youtube channel for those of you who missed it, and the latest is about the world of tabletop games and their various adaptations.
The conference was hosted by sister site PCGamesN war player and chaired by editor Alex Evans. The panel consisted of Modiphius Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Chris Birch, who attended in person, and Demiplane CDO, Adam Bradford, who joined the chat from the United States.
The worlds of video games and tabletop RPGs have always been intertwined, with adaptations going both ways. Games based on Dungeons & Dragons, Vampire: The Masquerade, Warhammer et cetera are generally popular on PC – similarly, tabletop adaptations of popular game franchises like Fallout, Dark Souls and Elder Scrolls are often just as successful, if they are made with care. The panel explains how to make tabletop adaptations work – both ways.
