What happens when you take years of design and engineering expertise and fuel it with a passionate love for gaming?

Localtoast Gaming Co... That's what happens.

The Localtoast team has over 3 decades of software design and development experience. Building awesome, intuitive software used by millions is what we do everyday. But we also love games.

What are we making?
Our focus is currently on our latest endeavor; a VTT called Project: Vantage...


An all new, easy to use, vitrual tabletop especially for the TTRPG community!




  • An intuitive, approachable user interface
    Heavily focused on user experience and ease of use
  • A stunning, professional design
    Beautiful visuals and sleek interactions are a top priority
  • All the essential features, plus...
    Dynamic lighting, fog of war, dice rolling, spell effects, and more!
  • Turn history and post-combat statistics
    Look back at engagements and even view an instant replay
  • Streaming mode & spectator-specific features
    Giving DMs the ability to engage viewers
  • Project: Vantage + D&D Beyond
    A match made in the Astral Plane

How your support impacts our efforts:
We all have full-time positions, but have committed to putting in at least 20 hours of development work a week towards this project. Probably the greatest impact of your support is showing us that there are people out there that believe in this team and this product enough to put their hard-earned cash behind it. We cannot stress this enough: That is so huge to us.

On a more practical level, at this point in our company's lifecycle, your support goes 100% to art assets, marketing, and other overhead involved in making a game like this successful. We'd love to be able to invest more of our time into this project too, and being able to support ourselves and/or bring on additional resources is certainly a future goal of ours as well.

Be involved in the design process and stay in the know! Be the first to see sneak peeks before anyone else. We will also rely on our patrons to help guide the design process.
