Level 99 Games reveals the fourth game in the Duelist Library
Commedia Dell’Arte is a library-exclusive title by D. Brad Talton Jr., illustrated by Stephanie Johnson. The game draws inspiration from the Italian Improvisational Theatre of the same name.
Two players use up to 15 different characters from classical Italian improv theater to play out a story of two lovers, the forces that come between them, and their ultimate fate. The difference between comedy and tragedy is whether they stay together at the end or not. It’s a fast-paced, pocket-sized game that takes just moments to learn, and each act will take only minutes to play.
Commedia Dell’Arte is one of five games that will be available in the Duelist Library, coming to Kickstarter next month.

The adorable Recall of Cthulhu comes to retail next month
Recall of Cthulhu presents the horrors of the Lovecraftian Mythos in the way they were meant to be — cute and cuddly! It’s a classic matching game that can be played by up to four of the most deranged patients in the Sanatorium, as well as young cultists aged 4 and up.
The box comes with 60 tiles representing 15 creatures, items, and places of the Cthulhu Mythos, as well as two player aids for playing the advanced game that adds a small amount of complexity if you want to.
Toy Vault Kickstarter’d the game in 2015 and sent the last copies to pledgers last month. The game will be available to the public later this month so it can warp more young minds and drive the mad even madder! MSRP is $24.

How about playing Fallout: New Vegas as it wore a Choose Your Own Adventure game?
That’s what YouTuber Many A True Nerd allows you to do in his channel series, aptly named Fallout: New Vegas: Choose Your Own Apocalypse. The YouTube series follows the story of Fallout: New Vegas asking players to make a decision at the end of each video by clicking on annotations. The objective is to arrive in Vegas alive. To do this you have to select the correct route, the perfect allies and of course, not getting murdered by the deadly Deathclaws in the initial few clips. Each clip is between 30 seconds to a couple of minutes.
I grew up with the less known Fighting Fantasy series, but I guess Choose Your Own Adventure is a better analogy because there’s no dice roll.
