Behold! It’s time to gather your friends and family around the table for an immersive role-playing game based on Pixar’s film, Onward. The Op, a leading tabletop games publisher, is teaming up with Disney/Pixar, as well as the creators of Onward, to allow fans to bring home a real-life piece of the story with Quests of Yore: Barley’s Edition.
We recently sat down with director Dan Scanlon who shared that the Quests of Yore game was coming, “we’re excited because the actual Quests of Yore game is coming out. It was a little delayed, so it’s going to be a little after the fact (release of the film), but it goes deeper into the world and is still funny.”
Dan also noted that two of our favorite Pixar story artists were some of the creative forces behind the upcoming Quests of Yore game — Louise Smythe and Austin Madison. Both artists have such talent and humor (and have a deep background in board-and-fantasy gaming) that we cannot wait to get our hands on this incredible game. Dan also noted that the game can be played by younger players and grow for a deeper story play with adults.
Quests of Yore: Barley’s Edition will have you and your fellowship setting forth on an epic Quest across familiar and unfamiliar lands. Rush to the aid of the satyrs of Clovendell and uncover a mystery that will test your adventurers’ strength and teamwork. Take on the role of the Quest Master leading the travelers or one of the fellowship hungry for adventure! The tale you tell will feature the folk and lore of the hit Pixar movie Onward. Elves, cyclops, goblins, dragons… and The Manticore, are just some of what awaits you on your journey in Quests of Yore: Barley’s Edition.
Maggie Matthews, Vice President of Licensing at The Op shares, “Perhaps the most exciting aspect of this project is that it allows fans to play the same game and experience the same excitement as Barley and Ian, and furthermore, get to embellish these adventures.” With an estimated playtime of 90+ Min, Quests of Yore Barely’s Edition will sure to be an epic game.
Quests of Yore: Barley’s Edition will be available this Fall throughout North America in specialty stores as well as in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand with a US $49.99 MSRP. Updated – the game will now be released in the Spring of 2021.
