10x10 Room Releases Conclave, the Tabletop-Inspired RPG You Can Play at Any Pace, from Any Browser

Boston, MA - June 4, 2012 - Two-person indie development team 10x10 Room announced the release of Conclave, its tabletop-inspired online RPG. The game had been in public beta since its successful Kickstarter in September 2012, which funded its remaining development. 

Conclave brings the turn-based combat and story-driven decision-making of tabletop RPGs to the browser. Players can play solo or cooperatively with up to three friends; cooperative play can be either synchronous or asynchronous, letting players pick whichever style they prefer. 10 free adventures offer the opportunity to try out the game before purchasing the full campaign, which includes 15 more adventures that complete the story. 

"We built Conclave because we missed the excitement of tabletop roleplaying games but couldn't find time to play them any more," said Nick Branstator, co-founder of 10x10 Room. "After more than three years of work, Conclave offers tabletop-inspired gameplay that fits into your life without sacrificing depth in its mechanics or story."
