Game not loading properly? Temporary fix

January 13th, 2014

If your game is not starting, or you are receiving language related errors in-game, try backing up and replacing your specific language file in the game folder. Example:

Go to "\Steam\SteamApps\common\guardians of graxia\DATA\TEXT\" and copy the two ENGLISH.DAT files and rename it to your language.

Example case:
MASTERTEXTFILE_ENGLISH.DAT -> MASTERTEXTFILE_GERMAN.DAT
CREDITSTEXTFILE_ENGLISH.DAT -> CREDITSTEXTFILE_GERMAN.DAT

Run the game again and see if the problem goes away. We are looking into a more permanent fix, but until then this should help if you cannot get in the game.

If you have any questions, please visit the Steam forums for the discussion on this topic:

About the Game

Guardians of Graxia takes on the form of a card-based board game set in a floating island environment high in the sky of the Graxia world. Releasing with four powerful Guardians that will guide your armies into battle, charge onto the battlefield by laying out your forces strategically. Gameplay advances in turns by selecting new unit and spell cards to place and move on the tiled map surface. Win by completing any of the numerous skirmishes, or by defeating Draknal Trueblood in the game's initial campaign!
The floating continents are filled with the cities and dens of dozens of magical races, including Dragons, Dwarves, Elves, Goblins, Humans, and many others. Guardians are the only ones able to create magical portals which are the sole means to cross from one drifting continent to another. The various creatures are constantly at war with each other through using their Guardians and armies via the portals. Use these portals to transport your armies and conquer the land found on the other side!

Key features:

  • Combines the best of a card game and board game in a PC format.
  • Dynamic gameplay using cards and map tiles in a floating continent environment.
  • Single-player skirmish and campaign modes available.
  • Highly replayable with over 240 Unit and Spell Cards.
  • Game card creatures include: Dragon, Dwarves, Elves, Goblins, Humans, Orcs, Skeletons, Wisps, Wraiths and many more!

  • Built to be expanded with additional map packs and other content updates.

Pros: Good concept, decent presentation for what it is, short campaign means I'm done quicker.
Cons: Gameplay is slow, AI takes forever to do anything, campaign missions have arbritrary events that will ruin your battle plan without any warning that only get worse as the campaign progresses, CCG elements are shallow with no customization or even a card viewer, tactics elements are shallow with low variety and boring grindy levels, the in game UI is almost good but gets frustrating at times as you fight with popups that get in the way of what you're trying to do, the story is forgettable and told via pop up text boxes with no other in game elements.

If you like the concepts of this game (CCG meets tactics with hero unit/avatar) then I'd recommend Mage Wars (Board game from Arcane Wonders) instead. There's a link on the Subreddit to the official forums with a way to play it online even if that's more what you're looking for.

Nice graphics, good ideas for the units, end of positive points. Interface is clunky, you have to guess things out. Descriptions of the cards don't give you enough information. Animations during the combat phases slow down an already extremely slow game - the AI takes forever to move one card. Goals are impossible to reach because each map is timed and the AI cheats on everything - they can slay five of your units with the weakest of theirs. Maps are thought as bottlenecks : only one strategy, only one direction to go.

A frustrating experience I'd recommend only to my worst enemies.

I just can't seem to grasp the fundamentals of Guardians of Graxia at all. I don't understand how battle outcomes are determined. I don't understand card sacrifices. It doesn't feel intuitive and often times it just comes off as a completely user unfriendly card game. I have managed to work through several of the tutorials but I still haven't been able to make sense of the results.

I can accept that there are just some games I'll never get, and this is one of them. Thankfully there's plenty of alternatives out there.

I like the whole idea of the game, but just the fact that it is such a slow turn-based game is what got me. And to add on to that, most the the AI units are OP and you have to have alot of mind power to overcome them.
