tabletopia-logoU novom broju Playzine magazina, možete pročitati moje utiske o novoj digitalnoj platformi za društvene igre, pod imenom Tabletopia. Ona je dostupna preko Steama, i trenutno se nalazi u Early Access fazi.

Kako se direktan konkurent Tabletop Simulatoru pokazao, pročitajte u magazinu, a ovde evo uvodnog dela iz istog:

 

U poslednje vreme primetili smo porast popularnosti društvenih igara kao kontrast rasta popularnosti ne-lokalnog multiplejer igranja kod video igara. Ovaj trend rasta se pripisuje sve većim pritiskom socijalnih medija, i dnevnom interakcijom sa istim, tako da se sve više ljudi vraća tradicionalnim vrednostima igranja licem u lice, koje društvene igre predstavljaju.
