Digital tabletop RPG and electronic entertainment developer Multiverse, Inc. has just announced One More Multiverse, an online virtual tabletop that combines video game-style digital assets into a single hybrid platform. One More Multiverse is now in closed beta, with its full public release currently scheduled for Q3 2021.
One More Multiverse (OMM) is an online game creation platform that blends the best multi-class skills of a virtual tabletop roleplaying game and a video game into a single free-to-play system. OMM’s goal is to be an all-in-one, user-friendly platform where you have the tools to build, play, stream, and share your virtual tabletop game assets in one easily accessible ‘verse. To that end, OMM features rulesets, character sheets, and virtual dice, and also allows you to make custom homebrew settings to create your perfect tabletop roleplaying game. Thariq Shihipar, CEO and cofounder of Multiverse Inc., had this to say:
Tabletop RPGs are all about having a shared storytelling experience and building a world together, and we want One More Multiverse to help make it easy to create and dive into those stories. We also want One More Multiverse to be welcoming to indie creators; whether they’re mapmakers, avatar designers, artists, writers, or adventure builders, we will have room for everyone to build and play.”
As shown in the release trailer (embedded below), OMM also features a video game art style similar to classic JRPG video games, and other modern video games such as Stardew Valley and Graveyard Keeper. This style sets it apart from the many other VTTs currently available and combined with the OMM Marketplace, represents a grand effort by Multiverse to advance the VTT concept into “the perfect place for current and aspiring indie RPG creators to find a home”.
Multiverse is also proud to proclaim that it is a solidly diverse company, initially created by “an Arab woman, a Black man, and a South Asian man” who “did not often see themselves reflected in the genre’s stories.” OMM was created with this diversity and inclusion built-in under the dev’s guiding principle of Good People that make Great Games. Multiverse has also been designed to operate as a permanently remote company, thereby increasing its policy of inclusion, and at the same time showcasing its commitment to employee safety amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
