Released by Nomad Games, Talisman is a digital rendering of the classic board game that’s released by Fantasy Flight Games. The idea in Talisman is that each player assumes the role of character pulled from fantasy style games and books (warrior, wizard, priest, monk, etc), and they are racing around the board to be the first person to claim the Crown of Command.

There is a pretty big release today for multiple platforms going by the name of The Aetherlight: Chronicles of the Resistance. This particular game is an online RPG that features a Steampunk themed world which is actually the setting for a retelling of a Biblical story. As a full RPG, players will have plenty of puzzles and quests to complete as they progress through the game’s story.
It seems like the Civil War storyline from the upcoming Captain America movie is making its way into more and more mobile games. A week and a half ago we reported on Marvel Puzzle Quest regarding that game getting the Civil War storyline as an event in-game, which is actually launching today. However Marvel Avengers Academy is also getting into the Civil War action now as well.
Marvel Puzzle Quest will be getting its own Civil War, all of which is inspired by the Captain America: Civil War movie and storyline. This will be an in-game event that will launch a day before the movie lands in theaters (May 6th, 2016) where players will be able to pick a side to be on, whether it is Team Iron Man or Team Captain America.
DeNA has announced a new game coming to Android soon called Monster Builder which, as the name suggests, is all about collecting and building up various monsters. This does fall into the collectible RPG genre we have sort of made up to classify these types of games. However, there’s a bit of a Pokemon theme to this one as well, with the whole collecting monsters part.
Yesterday we reported on Battleborn getting a mobile spin-off game for Android devices called Battleborn Tap. Today we get to report on another major franchise getting a mobile spin-off, and this time it is for the Uncharted series. Published by Playstation Mobile, Uncharted: Fortune Hunter is thankfully not just a clicker/tapping spin-off game like what ended up happening with Battleborn.
The rather humorous game Please, Don’t Touch Anything will be getting a Virtual Reality version released later this month for the Oculus Rift and the Gear VR headsets. If you’re not familiar with Please, Don’t Touch Anything, this is a pretty unique and funny game where you are presented with a single red button in front of a monitor, along with a sign saying not to touch anything.
