The Totally Accurate Battle Simulator -- also known as T.A.B.S. -- is a virtual experience put together by Landfall Games that lets players imitate medieval combat on a large scale. The game was debuted at the Castle Game Jam 2016 and it encompasses both prehistoric landscapes and themes merged with apocalyptic characters. The game is designed so that users can stage their own battles against expansive armies and control the interaction as if they were there on the field.

The T.A.B.S. is a realistic attempt at letting modern consumers experience warlike combat that would have happened several of hundreds of years ago. The game is simplistic in graphics with color-coded armies, geometric player figures and minimal landscape detailing. Instead the focus lies in the battle strategy and action taken by the players with hundreds of possible moves and outcomes to be explored.
