Most tabletop RPGs are meant to be played by more than one person — someone’s gotta be in the GM driver’s seat, after all. This makes them useless when your buddies aren’t around. But Oddfish Games is working on a solution — an engine that promises to convert ANY multiplayer tabletop game into a single-player experience. Sound impossible? They’re making it happen.
