Inaugural release from Thibaud de la Touanne’s Triton Noir is a tactical WWII co-op title
Triton Noir, the fledgling tabletop publisher founded by former video game producer Thibaud de la Touanne, has released its first title.
De la Touanne worked as a producer and project manager at a number of video game developers for 20 years, including as associate producer on Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs, before leaving in 2013 to start Triton Noir.
The publisher raised CA$86,947 (£52,566) for the creation of V-Commandos on Kickstarter at the end of 2014, originally planning the game’s launch for November 2015, before pushing the release to this year.
V-Commandos is a one- to four-player co-op title set during World War II, with players placed in the boots of the titular squad sent behind enemy lines to carry out missions in Nazi-occupied Europe.
Players take on key roles in the group, such as medic, scout and officer, and work together to achieve objectives ranging from blowing up a bunker to capturing German officers.
The base game is £55, with the Secret Weapons and Resistance expansions both costing £41.
