A Tale in the Desert preparing to restart with Tale 7

    
14

A Tale in the Desert’s current “telling” — Tale 6 — has been running a long time, ever since its debut in 2011. Since then, the game has transitioned to new management and gone extremely quiet. Fortunately it looks as though the Egyptian sandbox’s famous reset button will be hit in the near future.

Several sources are reporting that Tale 6 is heading for an end while Tale 7 is currently in testing. A Tale in the Desert boasts a fairly unique mechanism in which the entire game will periodically restart with new rules and challenges. With Tale 7, the team is bringing back conflict tests and adding things like stone hatchets and (yes) sheep pox.

BenesHacha LiquidElectron CistaCista I’m afraid so.  It’s only been ‘F2P’ while the new owner has been taking over and coding/recoding things.  It was always $15-ish a month.  It’s actually going to be lower than normal.  But I assure you when Tale 7 arrives, it won’t be deserted.  It will still be old :)

LiquidElectron CistaCista BenesHacha Awww really? And here I downloaded it yesterday and was getting back into it. I can’t justify a sub for a game that old (and that deserted) though :(

I can only hope that they pick up Unity or UE4, the graph is painfully dated, and the new engines basically don’t crash. New tools and a new engine would spiff this game up a lot, for very little effort.

CistaCista BenesHacha It won’t be F2P when Tale 7 comes along.  I believe he said $12 a month.

Very innovative game. I will jump in again. The start of a Tale is always fun.

This game has some very exciting crafting minigames and scientific components. 
The variety in harvestable plantlife is unrivaled by any other game, around 500 species including fungi. Unfortunately the world feels completely dead because there are no animals there.
Point-and-click movement is not my favorite either.

The game needs a interface overhaul to start I hope the new owners put some time in to the UI. My wife and I were having a blast back when tale 6 started. The problem was my wife kept crashing to the point were we stopped playing. (found no  fix)  Maybe we will check out tale 7 if they improve the UI.
