The logo is wrong... [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't wanna be that guy, but the three dots above the T is triggering me.

Three dots above a character is supposed to represent the letter A in tengwar. Why is it above the T, Weta??

Nerd of the Rings Visits the 'Tales of the Shire' Studio [In reply to] Can't Post

Nerd of the Rings visits Weta Workshop:

During my time in Wellington, I was able to swing by Wētā Workshop's studio for their upcoming Tales of the Shire video game! Here, I chat with Steve Lambert (Art Director), Mark Barrett (Lead Game Programmer), Calliope Ryder (Lead Game Producer), and Darren Ormandy (Creative Writer) about bringing a cozy Hobbit feel to gaming, their roads to Middle-earth, and the practical Workshop effects behind that first teaser!

Tales of the Shire releases later this year (2024).

Tales of the Shire Producers on making a multi-platform “Love Letter to Middle-earth” [In reply to] Can't Post

Article on the TORn homepage by Happy Hobbit's Kili:

On a blustery March afternoon in San Francisco, when the clouds skirting past the tall buildings threatened showers of rain amidst the bashful bouts of sunlight, a handful of wanderers tucked into an office nook for a chat about a game of special significance. Three had come all the way from New Zealand to attend the Game Developer’s Convention (GDC) for the week, while two of the travelers were California locals. It was a merry meeting indeed, and I was delighted to have the opportunity to ask some questions about the upcoming video game Tales of the Shire: A The Lord of the Rings Game™.

Hailed as the first “cozy” game set in the world created by J.R.R. Tolkien, Tales of the Shire is highly anticipated by fans of the gaming genre and The Lord of the Rings afficionados alike. Made in partnership with Private Division, Wētā Workshop are creating a Tolkien experience unlike any other, centered on the quaint, quiet lives of Hobbits in the Shire.

“This is our love letter to Middle-earth,” said Calliope Ryder, the lead games producer for Wētā Workshop, “looking at it through really cosy eyes. We wanted to build something that was about the Shire, that was about Hobbits, with a visual look no one had seen before. There’s a strong narrative and strong elements of gameplay, but the most important part is that it’s peaceful. It’s about slow Hobbit living.”
