Das Tal Interview with Alexander Zacherl, Managing Director of Fairytale Distillery

Das Tal is the world’s first Open World Survival Arena - we’re bringing together MOBA tactics and Sandbox MMO strategy. Our goal is to make MMOs fun again for PvP fans. No more grind. No more pay-to-win. No more tab-targeting. We are creating a game designed to be compatible with the busy life of an adult gamer. Das Tal rests on the three defining pillars; Meaningful Conflict, Skill-Based Combat, and Constantly Changing Worlds.

We will throw you into a dark fantasy prison valley. You start each game with nothing but your wits and your PvP skills. Over the course of weeks and months you will explore this world, grow stronger and learn to survive.

Hundreds of players will join you in the valley. Amongst them you will find friends and allies to form a clan. Start building your own settlement and empire whilst competing with rival clans.

In a completely player-driven economy, your influence and income will grow through diplomacy and warfare. You will strive to break free of your chains, defeat your captors and emerge victorious from your exile.

About the Studio

Fairytale Distillery is a boutique independent game development studio from Munich, Germany. It is the brain child of Alex and Sebi, long-time collaborators in the field of games-making. In their pursuit of the mythical Sandbox MMORPG they are joined by a motley crew of friends, fools and freelancers.

  • Impact Winter Review

    Impact Winter may have just a few too many issues now, but the real reason it isn’t a must-buy is that it would be much more fun if you were just a lonely man wandering the wasteland for items to make your church better. Instead, you must keep wondering if the campfire burnt out, and if the nearly-useless compatriots huddled around it are slowly dying now because no one knows how to throw another damned baseball bat into the embers.

  • Out Now: Dead by Daylight Spark of Madness Chapter

    Starbreeze together with Behaviour Digital, released a new Chapter for Dead by Daylight, titled “Spark of Madness”. The chapter’s new Killer is the Doctor - a former employee of a secret government black site who excelled at extracting information using the most twisted experimental interrogation methods. He uses electroshock therapy to make Survivors go insane, causing them to doubt everything around them. The new environment is an ever changing version of the facility in which he terrifies his victims.

  • Prey Review

    With Prey,the developer Arkane Studios has built on the proven success of its stealth shooters. The gameplay discourages a head-on approach, slowing down the pace of the action. However, the frustration of having to hide instead of fighting enemies is remedied by excellent graphic and sound design, a strong RPG element, and the possibility to gather resources and build useful devices. An additional perk is the inventive writing, which manages an immersive, haunting atmosphere.

  • Ashes of Creation Fully Funded in Under 12 Hours

    Ashes of Creation and the team at Intrepid Studios have reached their Kickstarter goal. As of this writing, over $800,000 has been raised by the thriving MMORPG community. And while the Kickstarter Campaign has fully funded its goal of $750,000, the game is still afoot with more goals to hit.

  • P.A.M.E.L.A. Early Access Review

    P.A.M.E.L.A. is one of the most visually solid games on Steam today, in the indie market — and possibly including AAA as well. There was a rash of bad reviews for crashing and loading issues, but the issues were fixed very quickly thereafter. Even with a small development team, NVYVE Studios has produced one of the most polished Early Access games I’ve seen, and it bodes well for the future of the title and the studio.

  • Everything Review

    Everything is an extraordinary journey. It’s Salvador Dali meets Neil deGrasse Tyson meets Eastern Mysticism. It’s art and spirituality brought to life in a medium that transcends the limitations of books and paints. This isn’t the game you want if you’re looking for casual entertainment with which to unwind at the end of a long day. Yet, even though Everything challenges your understanding of self and the universe, it never sacrifices the simple joy of fun.
