The storytelling element is core to what makes Gloom fun. But instead of trying to re-create the experience of sitting around the table with your friends and weaving stories, we’ve set out to offer a new kind of experience that stays true to that core fun-factor, while also offering you something you can’t get out of the table top game; fully animated and voiced characters!
If you’re playing online with your friends, we suspect you’ll also be running your favorite voice chat program in the background to continue the storytelling. In that case, the character’s banter may help break the ice for those friends who need a little coaxing to get into the storytelling mood. If you’re playing online with strangers, the characters will be ready to pick up that storytelling torch and keep it Gloomy on your behalf!
We’re also including an emote system, for those moments of shared excitement or dismay. You’ll be able to express a unique comment of ‘Greetings’, ‘Oops’, ‘Threaten’, or ‘Gloat’ in the voice of any of your living family members to the rest of the players!
