What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe that publishing a game as Early Access can be valuable for both developers and players for several reasons:

1. Feedback and Iteration: Early Access allows developers to gather feedback from a dedicated community of players. This feedback can be invaluable for identifying bugs, balancing gameplay and adding new features that the community wants. We think it creates a loop of development, feedback, and iteration that can greatly improve the quality of our game.

2. Flexibility in Development: Unlike a traditional game launch, Early Access allows for more flexibility in the development process. Developers can pivot based on player feedback or experiment with features that may not have been considered initially. This can lead to a more innovative and finely tuned game.

3. Transparency and Trust: By being open about the development process, challenges, and updates, developers can build trust with their player base. We believe that this transparency is beneficial for both players and developers to help developing the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Although this may not be completely accurate, since it depends on very different aspects such as funding, development speed and the feedback of the players, we believe that the game will stay in Early Access until Q4 2025, which is when we expect to execute the full-game launch.”

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

“We plan to keep improving and upgrading the Early Access version until it reaches the goals we have set for the full version of the game. These goals can be categorized into feature, content and balancing completion.

As for feature completion, we expect to add more capabilities to the game: more game modes, customization capabilities, and more polished UI/UX.

As for content completion, we plan to improve the amount of content the game has in terms of the amount of cards, the amount of overlords and battlefields, as well as cosmetics (stickers and skins). This also includes retention-related aspects of the game such as quests and achievements.

Lastly, balancing completion will be reached as all game elements (cards, battlefields and overlrods) are battle-tested and properly balanced, making sure that the game promotes fair and fun gameplay.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the current state of the game, players can choose an Overlord (either using one of the predefined decks or create decks from scratch using the provided cards) and play against other players in the form of friendly matches (ranked is not yet implemented in the game).

Players can't get new cards yet, since the main focus of the current build is to test the barebones of the system and to battle-proof the game concept and mechanics. However, players can still create and edit their decks with the provided card collection.

Our plan is to keep upgrading and impoving the game from this state to the final full version of the game while in Early Access, with the help of the received player feedback.”

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

“Rise of the Overlords is free-to-play and we will keep it this way in the future. We expect however, to add different in-app purchasing options for the players that are yet to be detailed.”

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

“The first step is to allow them to play the game in the initial development stages (Early Access). We consider player feedback the most valuable source of information that will allow us to sharpen the different aspects of the game as we introduce new features and reach the full feature version in the future.”

About This Game

Rise of the Overlords is an online multiplayer game that combines collectible card games (CCG) with board strategy games. Build your deck, command your army, and challenge other players in epic combats on stunning dynamic battlefields.

Rise of the Overlords is completely free and learning how to play will only take you 5 minutes!

  • Choose an Overlord with unique abilities to represent you on the battlefield.
  • Build your deck with powerful units, spells and equipment.
  • Strategically summon and move your units on the stage. Every square matters!
  • Fight epic battles in dynamic battlefields: Destructible walls, explosive barrels, lava, blizzards...
  • Develop your strategy to adapt to your opponent and the battlefield.

Each of the factions in Rise of the Overlords has its own synergies and playstyle, although all of them can be combined with a wide range of neutral cards to create countless different strategies.

For now, there are three factions available, but in the future two more factions will join the fight. Choose the faction that best represents your play style:

  • The Feral Tribes focus on brute force and direct combat. They have ways to deal huge amounts of damage in exchange for damaging their own units, but they also have powerful units that benefit from taking damage!
  • The Sons of Erendriel focus on performing fast, fluid combos while keeping the opponent at bay with powerful disabling spells and slippery units, waiting for the perfect moment to deliver the final blow.
  • The Kingdom of Amerald does not have very powerful units, but its battalions are unstoppable thanks to their healing spells and powerful defensive equipment! There is no one who wins them in battles of attrition.
