The Tale of Three - TheTaleOfThree Logo

The Tale of Three is an action-adventure game in which you can take part in an epic adventure with unforgettable characters in the mysterious world.

A third-person perspective video game with three playable characters whose fates get tangled up with each other.

Imagine a game like a fable where you decide how the story goes...

Beginner thief with magical powers, overgrown and extremely strong gnome, and smart elf with the powerful bow. Three heroes whose fates are suddenly tangled up with each other and lust for wealth leads to the one… But will they find what they expect at the end of the journey?

Well, the answer to this question you will obtain when you finish the game. But first you need to explore the magical world, defeat hundreds of enemies, discover pieces of the puzzle story and make decisions on which everything will depend. The great adventure is waiting for you!

The heroes appear in turns during the story so you will have an incredible opportunity to look at some events from the different perspective.

Almost every mission can be completed in multiple ways

You decide whether to accomplish it craftily, truculently, or maybe you can find a happy medium. You can sneak around or go all out, hide or attack. The choice is yours.

Each of three playable characters has its unique skills

that are inestimable useful in combat. You can fight using melee and ranged weapons and also magical powers.

Use the environment

Due to the physics a lot of objects can be moved and destroyed but also used against the opponents.

Compete against different enemies

wild animals, skeletons, bandits, angry gnomes, and many, many others as well as bosses whose defeat require use of fancy methods. But remember that every opponent is different so each requires different tactics.

Get ready to explore the magical world

(also on a horseback) covering approx. 10 square km (4 square miles) including undergrounds. Visit medieval city, enchanted forest, village of elves, ruins, dark woods, swamps, caves, etc., and also have some fun in the tavern, take a trip through the gnome mines, and sneak around the castle.

Be ready for the high level of difficulty

planning next move, solving puzzles, and making quick decisions that cannot be taken back.

Discover the dynamic world that is alive

with day/night cycle and weather. Meet a whole host of animals (e.g. wolfs, bears, cats, cows, birds) and the magical creatures (yes, dragons too!).

The Tale of Three is an action-adventure game with platform elements, but we won’t hold your hand throughout the story. There will be a lot to discover but nothing will be given on a plate. We focus on a maximum immersion and high level of difficulty like in the old-school games.

Watch trailer

If you haven’t already seen the trailer, don’t wait anymore – you must see it! The video contains actual in-game footage from the pre-alpha version.

About our inspiration

Among the inspirations we have to mention tales from our childhood like those by the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, Charles Perrault, and many, many others. When it comes to games, we take pattern from Hype: The Time Quest (it’s quite old but still charming), Fable: The Lost Chapters, and Prince of Persia.

So what we wanted to achieve was to create something that will make us feel the same magic we felt when our mothers and fathers read us stories in childhood, and then when we played games as teenagers. Sometimes contemporary productions look pretty but finishing them no longer makes such pleasure like in the old ones. 

We would like to return to the roots, drawn from the DNA of classics and make for you something that you will want to play again.

Technologies

We are using Unreal Engine which is a wonderful tool for game development. It powers such titles as Fortnite, VALORANT, BioShock, Batman, Borderlands, Gears of War, Mass Effect and much more. The newest version of this engine allows us to build a detailed world with a day/night cycle, weather events and without loading screens.

Also we are using SpeedTree to create stunning plants as well as Autodesk 3ds Max to animate characters and animals.
