But now he s going solo and revealing his new company as MetaArcade, a platform for self-publishing story-based adventure games, GamesBeat has learned.Reid s MetaArcade is creating a self-publishing platform for narrative-based adventure games.

And its first title will be a digital remastering of the classic tabletop role-playing game Tunnels & Trolls.

The MetaArcade Adventures platform is inspired in part by platforms like WordPress and Twitch, which have enabled massive communities to create content and find an audience, and doing it with tools that are free, easy, fun, shareable, and potentially lucrative, Reid said in an exclusive interview with GamesBeat.

You could always do those things, but you needed technical skill.

A prototype is in development, and Reid said it will be available for testing this summer.Meanwhile, Reid has secured the rights to Tunnels & Trolls for mobile and computer platforms.

Originally created by Ken St. Andre at Flying Buffalo, the game was a reaction to the complexity of Dungeons & Dragons, and so the system was much simpler, Reid said.
