Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Labyrinth is at the stage now where we need your feedback. We have been working in isolation for two years and now it is time for players to help us evolve the game to make it great! Community involvement is very important to us, we want to hear from you. Contact us at support@labyrinththegame.com.

During Early Access, please treat Labyrinth as a "sandbox." We are experimenting with all sorts of features. Much is not done yet and we have a long term vision for building an epic game. Fall in love with Labyrinth, but don't fall in love with any particular aspect of the game, as it may change.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Most likely until Q3 of 2017. EDIT: Labyrinth is closer than ever to having all the features we initially planned to add to the game while it was in Early Access. However, we feel it can still benefit from more polish, so we plan to stay in Early Access for awhile longer.”

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

“We would like the full version to have the features below that are not currently in the game. As we work to finish Labyrinth, the actual features may differ from what is described below.

Remaining Major Features:

  • All promised features are in. However we plan to keep the game in Early Access while we work on adding a new game mode, more content, and continue polishing it.

We will be updating the game every few weeks during Early Access, so you will see new features rolling in bit by bit. After Early Access we also have plans to add extensions and new game modes and features.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current build has the following features. We will update this list as new features are added to the game.

  • 9 Heroes and 9 Bosses
  • Offensive tactical game play
  • Timeline - tick resource system
  • Hero deck building
  • Hero specific resource systems
  • Asynchronous PvP
  • Pick ups
  • Authoritative servers
  • Defensive deck building
  • Replays with DVR style controls
  • Progression
  • Tutorial, both for offense and defense
  • Store
  • Crafting
  • Quests
  • Mac support
  • Hero skins
  • Free to play

Of course there are bugs in this version. Please let us know when you find them. We will do our best to patch crash bugs as quickly as possible. As we add new features, bugs are likely to appear again.”

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

“The price of Labyrinth will be changed to Free to Play when the card pack store is added. (UPDATE: It is now free to play.)

Once the game is F2P, all players who supported development with an Early Access purchase, will be granted 10 card packs from the core set. (UPDATE: If you previously made a purchase, but did not create an account before February 7, 2017, please contact support to have your card packs manually credited to your account.)

We will wipe accounts at the end of Early Access and perhaps also before if there is a technical reason for doing so. We may also need to wipe accounts if we discover a problem that requires it.”

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

“We welcome all players to help us make Labyrinth as great as it can be. To help, please consider doing one or more of the following.

  • Play the game and write a review!

  • Tell us what you love, what you hate, what you want to see next. Join https://steamcommunity.com/groups/labyrinthccg and participate in the discussions on the Community Hub.

  • Add one of more of these tags to the Steam Store page, so that Labyrinth is easy to find: Tactical, Tactical RPG, RPG, Strategy RPG, Turn-Based, Turn-Based Tactics, Card Game, Fantasy, Grid-Based Movement, PvP, and/or Dungeon Crawler

  • Tell your friends about Labyrinth!

Thanks for reading this far! We hope you love playing Labyrinth as much as we do.”

Week 92 Progress



Development

Over the past few weeks we worked on the recent update which included Shozen and have been working behind the scenes on the new game modes and mobile version of Labyrinth.



The art team drew layout for Adventure mode map; worked on mocked up level, plus made trees and UVs for Forest level; created Wastelander hero card art; created and integrated portrait art for Story mode (tutorial) dialog; created concept art, modeled ruins, and background for Starspire level; completed high and low poly models of Spirit Beast boss and prepared it for rigging; and worked on modeling and animations for Duelist.



The audio team tweaked Sorcerer sounds; fixed and added button sounds; and created sounds for Wastelander.



The design team implementing first pass on new Tutorial and tested the new content; revised tutorial 2 and took a first pass on tutorial 3; mocked up battle outro; completed UI mockup for mobile; worked on spec for Adventure mode, designed its layout and UI.



The engineering team created new Quest choice feature and added new Quest UI art; refactored shell for Adventure mode replays and merged in new UI; worked on star requirements for Adventure Mode; worked on improving deck data around stars, unexplored rooms;worked on non-PvP encounter framework; added dialogs for PvE encounters; integrated and cleaned up the Finite State Machine; made system fixes to accommodate new Story mode; added Story Mode events; made Hero tutorial operational; improved raid shell flow; experimenting with mobile cam & controls; and worked on authentication to Wiki.



Matchmaking Server

We also made a modification to the matchmaking server because although it looks like matches are happening more often for players since the last update, raid credits are still weighted too heavily in the algorithm, so we are scaling back their influence even more. That change went into affect today.

Bring 'action' to collectible card games


With the inclusion of a turn-based 3D combat system, we are excited to bring more action and tactical thinking to the battlefield, upending many conventions of traditional card games. Every card is more than a means for achieving victory: it's also part of a living, breathing world. This also plays to our studio’s experience in making AAA action games.

Design for deep CCG strategy


The combination of tactical action with familiar CCG strategy opens the door to a new kind of adventure game. We are happy that the creator of Ascension and Solforge, Justin Gary and his team at Stone Blade have joined us to add their decades of experience playing and designing CCGs to our own. Together we are exploring this new frontier and discovering new possibilities for rich gameplay.

Create an expansive world rich in culture--both magical and familiar


We are passionate game developers. We want that to shine through in Labyrinth. In crafting the diverse world of Hylea, whether we are describing the Cosmos and creation story of Starfall or the jewelry of a Giant from the Northern Clans, we strive to have our passion and attention to detail reflect in every facet of story and art.

Build a game that will last for decades


First and foremost, Labyrinth is a collectible card game. With their hallmarks of creative play, endless combinations, meta-game thinking and the potential for vast expansion, CCGs offer the best and longest-lasting experiences in gaming. We've captured these proven qualities and folded them into an exciting new game.



The Four Disciplines of Magic


The disciplines of magic in Labyrinth each correspond to energy drawn from a different source within the Cosmos. They grant their wielders unique abilities that define a particular style of play.



Practitioners of Warfare magic draw their power from the Spirit plane, a realm ruled by the eternal souls of ancient warlords. Warriors enhance their strength by channeling the might of their heroic ancestors. Warfare prefers a strategy that dominates through brute strength and outlasts with sheer indomitable will.



Wizards, Sorcerers, and Arcanists draw energy from the Elemental plane, a swirling and chaotic maelstrom of raw energy and matter, inhabited by strange animate essences of Fire, Frost, Air, and Earth. Wizardry combines these primal forces to form hulking monstrosities, or it unleashes their raw power with devastating torrents of magic. Wizards wield the most powerful effects in the game, but at the expense of endurance.



Devotees of Faith magic draw on the favor of the Celestial plane, a vast realm inhabited by gods and demigods as numerous as the humans of Hylea. Celestial beings are fickle and fundamentally alien-- but when they choose to involve themselves in the struggles of humankind, their favors are often decisive. Faith prefers to maintain control of the entire battle, stalling the largest threats while crushing the weak with the will of the gods.



Unlike the other three disciplines, Skulduggerists do not draw their power from a far-flung realm, but from within, directly ingesting Stardust to enhance their own innate traits. This grants them incredible reflexes, insight, and intellect. Engineers create wonders of mechanical ingenuity. Rogues gain powers of deception and agility. Skulduggerists prefer a strategy where they stay elusive until the perfect moment, then strike to maximum effect.

Hero and Boss Cards


These cards form the heart of a player's collection. On a raid, players control a party of three Heroes, each with its own deck. On defense, players may control a number of Bosses that grows with their dungeon. Each Boss also has its own deck.



Heroes and Bosses all have their own unique special ability that encourages certain play-styles and deck building synergies. A Hero or Boss card also defines which of the four disciplines of magic that character may use.

Offense Cards


Attack cards form the core of a Hero’s deck. Each of the four disciplines of magic specializes in a different style of attack. For instance, Warfare prefers to close distance and crush its foes with large, devastating strikes, while Wizardry opts to stay at range and roast or shatter groups of enemies with area-effect spells. Each discipline also has its own special resource which further reinforces a particular style of play.

Defense Cards


Minion cards are the core of most Boss decks. They represent allies pulled from across Hylea and the Cosmos, and summoned to defend your lair. Each Boss draws on a different style of magic when summoning Minions. Mechanical Bosses draw on enhanced powers of the mind to assemble autonomous terrors, while Divine Bosses curry favor with the gods to summon strange and powerful beings from the Celestial realm. Some cards directly enhance the Boss or allow it to perform a devastating one-time attack.

The Cosmos of Labyrinth


A great crack tore open the sky. As the farthest reaches of the realm shook with unnatural thunder, thousands of eyes looked up to see their peaceful night shattered into a shimmering prismatic storm. From a fissure in the heart of the tempest, a white star streaked, trailing fire and glowing brighter as it plummeted. Where it crashed to earth it swept into being an enormous crater that crackled and thrummed with otherworldly power.

In time, the crater was filled by the water of the Jarum river, and became a great lake. The first visitors were pilgrims following the path of the star, which they named the Prophet’s Tear. They soon discovered that the site was laced with a powdery substance that granted strange and extraordinary powers. They also found the Keyrifts--tiny bubbles in reality through which they could peer into other dimensions. As word spread of these discoveries, a sprawling city began to spring up around the rim of the crater: the City of Starfall.



A robust trade in Stardust mined from the crater developed. Men and women came from distant lands and settled in the city's many colorful ethnic wards. Prosperity brought peace and peace ruled over the city for centuries.



Now, the age-old pacts and alliances are breaking down. The earliest settlers have consolidated their power and look to push out rivals. Newcomers to the city seek to carve out territory for themselves. As night falls, a silent war begins in the tunnels, alleys, and halls of the ancient city. A sense grows that it's every Hero for themselves...
