What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is complex and we need to mold it together with the community. A lot of design choices we made will need to be adjusted based on how players interact with the world. There is also a lot of room for further development (new heroes, cards e.t.c) that can come from community as we head towards the final release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately 6 months”

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

“During the course of early access, we are looking to add the following:
New Heroes
New Monsters
More adventure cards in each area
New world areas
More battle maps
More equipment and combat cards
Localization will also happen towards the end of early access”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game has almost all it's features and is only missing some heroes and planned areas.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features”

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

“Due to the complexity and algorithmic nature of the game we need to constantly adjust the cards and battles and player feedback is key to this. We are also looking for new ideas for more heroes, cards and battles.”

About This Game

A message from the Elder

“Heed my warning well my friends... A new evil has risen in the far east, a sorcerer and a student of chaos magic has arisen and now looks to the west to use his newly found magic. We must send word to the tribes and gather our best warriors. Some of the magic we will face is new even to me. It will be necessary to call upon some old alliances if we are to make stand against this evil. I will guide you in this journey but much will depend on you.”
