6/5/15 – Update v5.0 Tabletop Simulator Officially Launches With Superfight DLC!

We did it! We’ve come so far in just a little over a year and now we’ve completed Early Access and are officially released! Thank you to everyone who supported us along the way from the Kickstarter days to now. Without your support, we wouldn’t be where we are today. We’ve proven that Early Access does work and it really pushed us to make Tabletop Simulator better than ever. The fun doesn’t stop here however, we’ve got a lot more in store for you and we’ll be continuing the development to ensure Tabletop Simulator is top notch!

This also marks the exciting release of our first DLC with Skybound’s Superfight, a hilarious card game in which players use cards to create ridiculous characters, and then argue about who would win in a fight! You can check out the store page for Superfight here.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our trailer contest! We received a lot of great entries even though it was short notice, so we appreciate you taking the time to do so. The lucky winner was Michael Clark and you can see his winning trailer here:
