Today is a special day for MetaArcade as we get to release our remastering of one of Tunnels & Trolls’ most iconic and beloved adventures, City of Terrors. It is only fitting that we get to do it on the verge of its 40th anniversary.
As announced last week, today we are releasing the first adventure created by the members of the MetaArcade Creators Pilot Program: Necropolis of Vaarh is intended for low-level characters and will take you across the perilous stretches of the Scorching Veldt. Like Naked Doom and The Ascendant, it is available to all players for free!
Back in March, we announced the Pilot Program for the MetaArcade Adventure Creator. At first, we did not know what level of interest to expect, but the response from prospective authors has been overwhelming!
Steve here with more MetaArcade news. This week it’s the release of the expanded Stop Thief! adventure. Originally this solo, written by Mike Stackpole, ran in the pages of Sorcerer’s Apprentice #7, the official T&T magazine. Then Stop Thief! laid dormant for many years until it appeared in the Adventurer’s Compendium that Flying Buffalo published in 2014.
This week, it’s the release of Deathtrap Equalizer, one of the first classic T&T solo adventures. Most adventures take place underground, in a bustling city, or the wilderness. This adventure is more like a closed time loop in a pocket universe. You’ll be teleported from one encounter to the next and try to see how many encounters you can go to before you are defeated. When Deathtrap was first released, this was a revolutionary way to have an RPG adventure, so you are walking in the footsteps of gaming history...
Greetings delvers! While we prepare for your next Tunnels & Trolls adventure in Gull (spoiler alert: some of you may know it very well!), we’re excited to introduce another member of the team with this week’s Developer Spotlight. Greg Buron is the co-founder of MetaArcade and the head of Software Development – but he also helped create some of the most popular adventures we released.
We said a new Gull adventure was coming, and now you can play it! The plot: During a fight, you are dumped in the sewers by some people who don’t seem to like you too much. Now you’ll have to find a way out before you either get sick and die, or some of the stinking denizens in the sewers eat you or rob you blind. Fortunately, there is someone willing to help you – but can they be trusted?
