Rory’s Story Cubes have helped gamers out there tell great stories with their simple-to-use design and seemingly endless combinations (apparently over 10mil in the base set). Well, now they’re a cornerstone of their own game. Untold: Adventures Await is a new storytelling game that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Go on outlandish adventures in this new emergent storytelling game, powered by Rory’s Story Cubes and a little imagination. Be anyone, go anywhere and do anything. It’s your show. Be a hero!
When the original Rory’s Story Cubes set was first released back in 2008, The Creativity Hub’s Anita and Rory were just two people with a game and a firm belief that it needed to exist out there in the world. We never dreamed that this simple storytelling game would take on a life of its own. Whether it’s at a games convention, in a classroom or refugee camp, during a hospital visit or just a quick couple of minutes before a meal, Rory’s Story Cubes has been bringing people together and acting as the spark that ignites their imagination. With over 10,000,000 possible combinations in the base set alone, the stories that have been told by players of all ages continue to surprise and delight us every day. Now, with well over one hundred different StoryCubes available in various sets and themes, the potential for storytelling is almost limitless.
For quite some time, we’ve wanted to create something that captures what we love about roleplaying games – the shared world building, the constant twists and turns, watching your character grow – then marry it with Rory’s Story Cubes to create a simpler, more accessible experience for a wider audience. This is a project that’s been brewing for a while, but now we think we can honestly say that we have designed something rather special. Untold: Adventures Await is here, and we can’t wait for you to play it!
The campaign’s about 3/4 of the way to their goal with still 21 days left to go.
