What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“To create the best possible Tabletop Wargaming experience on PC, we need to involve the community early and often to help guide development.

A free demo is available here on Steam to help you decide if this is a project that you want to support in Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“As long as it takes for the community to be in consensus that the game is prepared for a wider release. Given the current state of the game and its content, an Early Access period of six months seems appropriate. That period could shrink or expand depending on how things go.”

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

“The primary way in which the Early Access version will differ from the release version is in the content available. Currently we have approximately 170 unique units and spells in the game, with plans to double that number by release. The release version will also feature a robust single-player campaign, whereas the single-player content available right now is limited to AI Skirmishes and to a brief single-player campaign meant to highlight the features available.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently the game is 100% playable in online multiplayer and in single-player skirmishes against the AI. The in-game map editor is ready for you to use to create your own maps and to share them on the Steam workshop. There are currently more than 150 units including Champions, Spells, Equipment, and Structures, with more units being added in regular updates. More than 125 diverse active and passive abilities currently exist as well.”

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

“Yes, pricing will change. Everyone who buys into the Early Access period will be receiving a full set of the Fantasy Play Set cards. In the future, we will offer a low-or-no-cost version of the game to bring an expanded player-base in. The opportunity to buy a full Play Set of cards may disappear entirely at that point. Essentially, you should understand that the business model of this game will change over its lifetime with the aim being to bring the largest multiplayer base into the game as we can. It is our aim to provide top-tier value to people who want to support this project in its Early Access period.”

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

“Our forums are expected to be filled with lively discussions on balance and features. We want to hear every bit of feedback that you have, and it is our goal to rapidly update the game with new content and features in response to community needs.”

Map-Maker Hot Fix

Hi Folks.

I did a lot of behind-the-scenes optimization in patch 11, and one of the unforseen side effects was to cause a bug that could prevent you from saving maps that you make in the editor!

I'm sorry if that has caused any trouble! There's a hotfix to 11 going up right now that will resolve this issue!

Demo Updated & EA Patch 11!

Hi folks. I have released an updated Demo version 3 that includes all bug fixes and feature improvements, bring it up to date with the Early Access version. It still has limited content, and you cannot use the Workshop in the demo or unlock rewards from Challenges. However, you can play the entire EA Intro Campaign, as well as multiplayer matches and single player skirmishes, so have fun!

The EA version 11 patch is now up. Patch notes as follows:

- Fixed a number of skill- and spell-related bugs
- Fixed issue with tooltips not parsing out conditions for extra information

- Added Dwarven Nexus
- Added a pooling system to make map loading progress more smoothly
- A bunch of skills accidentally had a +1 DMG modifer added to them, so that whenever the skill fired a champ would gain +1 DMG. That is fixed
- Added "Mass Invisibility" spell
- Added "Fairy Portal" structure
- Added "Summon Swarm" spell
- Added "Cursed Guillotine" structure
- Added "Infect" spell
- Added "Cauterize" spell
- Added Champion "Lord Julianus"
- Added "Balancing Scales" structure
- Added Spell "Secret Shield"
- Added "Witch of the Wilds" Champion
- Added "Accursed Band" equipment
- Added "Skull Ring" equipment
- Added "Blood Pool" structure
- Added "Sands of Time" structure
- Added "Corrupted Mace" equipment
- Added Goblin Ranger champion
- Added Goblin Cleric champion
- Added the "Free Pair" skill which I will attach to some cards. This lets you draw two of the card, and makes sense for some things like traps or spells that maybe aren't worth a whole slot in your deck for just one

Alright, so keep an eye out for any bugs with the new version! There have been a bunch of under-the-hood changes that seem to work great but you never really know until we get more players testing out those edge cases.

As always, I'll be on the forums ready for your feedback!

About This Game

Longsword brings turn-based tabletop tactics to the digital world of PC Gaming. In Longsword, you will collect and build an army comprised of miniature champions, spells, equipment, and structures. You can then customize the appearance of your army and enter it into battle on a hex-based tabletop battlefield!

The heart of Longsword is in its online combat, where you will pit your custom armies against those of foes from around the world. But so too does Longsword provide solo and cooperative adventures to hone your skills, discover the world of Longsword, and to earn unique rewards.

The true potential of Longsword is that it is not just a game, but a framework for tabletop games. The world of tabletop gaming is huge and we want to provide a common ruleset and a common set of tools to bring tabletop gamers from every genre into an online space where they can share their passion.
