What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Nova Blitz is a complex game system. We'll be using Early Access to squash bugs, develop new features, and improve player experiences, and we'll be much better able to do this with a community of players giving us feeback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“3-6 months, with full release in the first half of 2017”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of the game will include regular content releases and scheduled events, as well as more features that will be developed in conjunction with the community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Nova Blitz is fully playable during Early Access. Some features, such as large-scale events, are turned off during Early Access. Others will be added during Early Access.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“No. The base game will always be free. In-game purchases may change or be replaced over time, but there will be no difference between Early Access and full release pricing.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Community feedback & player activity will be taken into account for feature development, bug fixes, game balance, and new card designs.”

Patch 1.32.0 is live!

We've revamped the chat and friends system from the ground up. It's a much more performant and reliable system now.

Chat changes:
  • The Friends system is far more robust. Friend requests and confirmations won't get lost any more. If you don't see a friend listed on your friend list, send them a new request.
  • You can cancel sent Friend requests
  • Online status is reported more accurately
  • You can see your block list, and unblock blocked users
  • There's now a Global Chat window, where you can chat with anyone who's currently online. You can reach this from the main menu.
  • As we grow, we'll monitor the size of Global Chat. If it gets too big, we'll split it into multiple channels.
  • Chat now shows timestamps, player avatars, etc!
  • Private chat stores your chat history (on your local machine)
  • You can Add Friends direct from global chat
  • If someone abuses their chat privileges in any way, there's a "Report" button that will send a report to Support. We'll review the report, and take appropriate action, up to and including terminating accounts.
Feature Improvements:
  • All data files are stored zipped, not in raw text. Saves 5-8x on download times for new data updates
  • Draft has a minor facelift, with improved/fixed animations
Bug Fixes:
  • If you start the game up with no internet connection, you'll get a more helpful error message
  • Prevented a bug where the game could progress to the main menu before all game data was loaded

Patch 1.30.3 is live

We've been making a lot of little fixes, to get us closer to a full Steam launch. If you've got an improvement you'd like to see, let us know in the comments!

Feature Improvements:
  • A major upgrade to our visual FX. You'll see a lot more FX playing now, and the FX that play are better designed.
  • We've changed the way blocking is displayed in combat. Now, blockers will "jump" in front of the attack, so it's much more clear that the blocker is blocking, rather than being attacked by the attacker.
  • When you're playing in "Zoomed Arena" mode, card names will float up the card so they're visible in your hand.
  • Game timer bar and initiative changes are much more visible
  • Improved the sorting of arena elements. Damage and ability notifications now play above FX, and some card sorting has been improved
  • Emotes now play above other items
  • Start game panel now animates the player portraits
  • There's now an "exit game" button in the Settings menu
  • The deck builder no longer hides cards you don't own. Instead, it sorts them to the bottom.
Bug Fixes:
  • Targeting yourself with Hospitaller now actually targets yourself.
  • Deja Vu no longer breaks the game. Again. Which is kind of appropriate for Deja Vu...
  • Escape no longer closes views it shouldn't close
  • AI Hack actually wears off properly
  • Removed a set of slow memory leaks
  • improved deck builder 2-touch so it flows better
  • Fixed crafting, so closing the crafting view always fires off the crafting command
  • Card dragging in the drafting screen works better now

So what's left before we hit full Steam launch? The big pieces are Steam achievements & trading cards, improvements to the Friend list system, and streamlining the tutorials. Plus, of course, more polish & bug fixes.
