When Awaken Realms (This War of Mine: The Board Game, Lords of Hellas, Nemesis) launched a Kickstarter campaign for its latest board game — Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon — it was fully funded at $50,773 in a single minute. Less than three hours later saw $1,000,000 in pledges; $2,000,000 was pledged in the first 24 hours.

This time out, the developer has joined with well-known Polish fantasy writer Krzysztof Piskorski to bring board fans a truly epic adventure set in the original, dark interpretation of Arthurian myths. Branching plot twists are included; there will be many paths to take and several different endings to experience

Tainted Grail is an adventure, survival and exploration board game. It offers an immersive co-op/solo experience for 1–4 players and is centered around a non-linear, branching story. All this makes Tainted Grail a board gaming equivalent of the finest cRPGs out there.

The story of Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon will push the boundaries of non-linear narrative. Building upon rich experience, Awaken Realms has infused ambitious stories with excellent board game mechanics and striking visuals. It will be playable either solo or co-op for up to four players.

Now for the PC part. From the press release:
The Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon Kickstarter turned out to be the fourth most successful board game crowdfunding campaign on the platform ever, with over $6,200,000 gathered in pledges from almost 42,000 backers. This allowed its creators, Awaken Realms, to play an ace they’ve been hiding up their sleeves. Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon – a story-driven RPG set in the world of Arthurian legends – is coming to PC!

Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon will offer a tense exploration and survival experience set in a grim retelling of Arthurian legends. Full of stirring art and incredible, non-linear narrative, the game will offer a unique mix of discovery, challenge and exciting cRPG character progression, as well as combat and diplomacy systems.

Even though the Kickstarter has ended, you can pay a visit to the page here . The Awaken Realms website is located here.

The only release date I’ve seen so far is “soon.” So stay tuned.

I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
