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 hope that you will play a big part in its development.

Transparency is everything to us. We want to tell you about all the latest updates and hear and discuss your feedback. Whether you found a bug, have some design feedback, or came up with your own great idea, we want to hang out and talk about it. We promise to give you a voice. Your ideas and comments will shape the game during its development!

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 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 10 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 8 playable Provinces, 25 discoverable Heroes, over 600 cards and polished 3D boards & 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 card RPG experience possible.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently features 1 playable province, out of the 8 that we plan on launching with the 1.0 version of Arcanium. 12 characters are available to play and we plan on releasing an extra 13 characters over the course of the Early Access. The core gameplay loop is 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 1.0 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

Arcanium plays like a combination of Roguelike and Deckbuilding card games. At the start of the journey, the player selects 3 unique characters with a starting strategy in mind. The goal is to explore 3 of available Provinces in order to unlock the Final Boss. Each Province is procedurally generated and presents nodes distributed in a branching structure. Nodes will turn into random Encounters you will have to fight, Events, Quests, Merchants to purchase consumables, Forges to upgrade cards, Inns to restore health and many other secrets you will have to discover yourself.

Arcanium features a unique combat system that takes place in real time and lets you queue your actions while paused. Your 3 Heroes must face tough strategic choices with every enemy encounter.

The deck-building game requires players to develop a strategy for their deck on the fly, based on the cards they can obtain from loot and in synergy with the Heroes they control. The player must strategically decide which cards are the best fit to make the deck effective, when to sell or when to spend money to purchase various consumables and rations.

Discover and Defeat each Hero in their homeland in order to unlock them and add them to you roster. All newly discovered Heroes, Artifact and Ability Cards will be available to use in future journeys. Arcanium promises hundred of hours of fun, and constantly evolving & challenging procedural content.
