Early Access Game

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

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

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.”

Quick Fix Update

Hi folks -

There was an issue preventing player 2 from drawing cards in Online Multiplayer. A hotfix has been issued to address this. Sorry for the problems!

Stay tuned for a fresh batch of cards in the coming weeks, and more challenges to earn gold and unique cards. We're moving hard towards a release.

EA Patch 16

I've uploaded a new patch today with a bunch of new content and features. Probably the stuff that you'll care about most is:

1. You can play Hot-Seat MP on one computer. Let me know what you think about how that all works.
2. You can earn gold for beating the AI. It's not a lot right now.
3. You can spend the gold on some vanity items or on card packs. Obviously everyone here has all the cards already because you bought the game, but in the future the F2P players will be buying packs with those cards.

Anyway, the next patch will focus on enabling ranked play and then we'll probably open the game to the public at large for free. I still need to add a bunch of units and also finish the "painting" prep for the units, which is a ton of work. But it's coming!

Patch 16 full notes:
- Added Hotseat Coop Mode
- Added Unique Control tiles to each faction; these tiles are not available in the editor and will
make it extremely clear which faction owns a runestone or nexus area
- Added Nexus art for the Feydark and Helguard Nexus units
- Enabled the in-game shop
- Enabled functionality for users to buy packs of cards with in-game gold. For you purchasers this won't necessarily matter, but it lays the groundwork for bringing free players in
- Enabled functionality to buy some custom unit bases for in-game gold.
- Polymorph will no longer remove equipment from the polymorphed unit
- Polymorphed units who have gained Immortal will no longer be added to your hand as a Giant Toad
- Fixed issue with Fire Wand not granting the attack at 2-4 range
- Fixed "Fast Attacks" not working properly if a character had 3 AP
- Fixed issue where the AI would spawn painted units. They will only spawn default-colored units
- Changed behavior of User Interface such that pressing the Tab key will cycle the way health and AP information is displayed. You can have low opacity->full opacity->all UI info off.
- Implemented a cheat detection system
- Fixed an issue where Plague Aura was not stacking
- Fixed some issues with Steam Player Avatars not loading correctly
- Fixed an issue where the stone control tile was not being detected as Stone for purposes like Stone sense etc
- Changed Soul Blade to directly attack hitpoints. It ignores defense, elevation, etc.
- Updated the Trials of Marcus campaign Hydra Island (optional battle) to be winnable!
- Some general user experience improvements. If you press escape with nothing selected in the game, then the menu will pop up.
- The in-game menu will now allow you to restart a campaign mission without quitting to the main menu
- Fixed a number of outstanding issues related to the Boats on the campaign map; previously it wasn't too hard to get yourself stranded on Hydra island. Works properly now.
- If you own the "Founder's pack" then your account will show that you own 2 of every card (everyone who has the early access game has this)
- Fixed an issue where the Fey deck wasn't showing the proper icons in the card manager
