What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access is the chance for us to develop a Community around the game. We invite all RPG slayers, Card game players, Roguelike lovers and Dungeon crawlers to join us and help us shape the future of Arcanium. We want you to play a big role in ARCANIUM's development.

Transparency is everything to us. We want to tell you everything about the features in development long before we release them, and always keep you in the loop. Whether you found a bug, have some design feedback, or came up with your own great idea, we want to heart it. We promise to give you a voice. Your ideas and comments are what will shape the game during its Early-access period.

We will have a clear Roadmap that you will be able to access through our website, and that we will follow rigorously. The plan is to release big content update patches with new playable Provinces, Heroes, Villains, Bosses and extra Cards every 2 months, in order to keep our players engaged throughout the entire Early Access period.

We plan on exceeding expectations, and produce a groundbreaking title that will spawn a new genre, and that players will love to play and replay for hundreds of hours, and love as much as we do!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan on staying in early access for about 6 months, and want to make sure we deliver a product that is as polished and engaging as possible.”

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

“We plan on releasing 6 playable Provinces (including the final Boss' island), over 25 discoverable and playable Heroes, over 500 cards, and polished 3D battlegrounds & maps loaded with details. We also want to set the bar extremely high for all of our sound FX, music and visual FX in order to create the most immersive single-player card RPG experience possible.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently features 3 playable province, out of the 6 that we plan on launching with the final version of ARCANIUM. 12 characters will be available to play and we plan on releasing over double the amount, over the course of the Early Access period. The core gameplay loop is robust and fully implemented, and will continue to be polished throughout Early Access as well.”

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

“Yes. We don’t have a firm price for the game once it exits Early-Access yet, but given all the content that we’ll be adding and the added polish the game will receive, you should expect the price to increase at launch. We’ll definitely be talking about it ahead of time.”

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

“We will be designing the game YOU want to see. We are planning on involving the community actively, as we develop and design Arcanium from the ground up. We are particularity interested in:

  • Heroes and cards balance
  • Level design balance
  • Bug hunting
  • Content creation

About This Game

Welcome Adventurers!

"ARCANIUM: Rise of Akhan" is an ambitious Single-player Strategy Card game of epic proportions, that merges both "Roguelike" & "Deckbuilding" genres in many new ways. The game is a tale of fellowship and bravery, and is set in a fantasy World of anthropomorphic animals where good, evil, magic and technology collide. Form a party of three adventurers and embark on your dangerous journey in order to defeat Akhan the Calamity, and save the World of Arzu from destruction.

ARCANIUM is directly inspired by epic tales like "The Lord of the Rings" by J.R.R. Tolkien, and by some of our favorite games like Slay the Spire (Megacrit), Faster than light (Subset Games), Hearthstone (Blizzard Ent.), and classic RPG games like Diablo (Blizzard Ent.) and Baldur's Gate (Bioware). And if you squint your eyes hard enough, you might notice some more traditional board game elements as well!

The game features unique mechanics that set it apart from the other existing titles in the Genre:

Explore a vast continent broken down in several Provinces that feel unique and offer a different set of challenges. Each province represents one "Act" and can be visited in any order. You will need to defeat three Acts in order to face "Akhan the Calamity", the final Boss.

This is our fancy way of saying that you are in total control of your own Journey! Roam freely inside our full-3D procedural maps, but keep an eye on the Act's difficulty... The longer you stay in a Province, the harder the enemies get!

Extra chance to get ambushed or reduced visibility at Night, extra chance to sneak up on enemies or succeed difficult rolls during the Day, the mechanic offers a deep and exhilarating layer of immersion that has a direct impact on every decision you make.

Environmental hazards, corrupted tiles, enemy ambushes and dangerous curses await! The Provinces you visit evolve and crumble before your eyes, as you make your way to Akhan's Lair.

Every battle will test your skills and will require coordination and planning to fully master. Our innovative combat system is easy to learn, while offering tremendous strategic depth.

Control a party of three Heroes that act individually on the battlefield, and each have their own abilities, equipment and upgrades. In battle, Heroes can even swap with each other, allowing the healthier Heroes to step in front of the incoming damage and protect your more fragile party members.

Heroes are spread across 6 classes (Mage, Support, Tank, Assassin, Mercenary and Marksman). They each have a unique starting deck of Ability cards that fits a specific archetype. Triple Supports? All ranged Abilities? Damage-over-time heavy? Anything goes! Find the play-style that works for you.

Find powerful Artifacts, gain new Ability cards and discover Consumable items throughout your journeys. You can edit your Heroes' decks and Equipment cards anytime you want.

Arcanium has tons of content to unlock and offers infinite replayability. Playing Heroes will level up their out-of-session talent trees, and allow you to unlock variations of their starting Ability cards. Additionally, reaching the maximum level on your favorite Hero will enhance his/her look so you can slay your foes in style!

ARCANIUM is a tale of bravery, heroism and companionship. The World of Arzu is vast and diverse, and its Lore is based on a fantasy tale of Epic proportion. In it, factions and provinces come together in order to serve the greater good: defeat Akhan and restore the balance.

ARCANIUM is an original IP entirely created and owned by Supercombo, Inc.
