What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is invaluable to us as a small team. It helps us immensely with playtesting and gathering feedback. We also believe in developing the game together with the community. We are essentially making a toolbox for creative players to play around with, and what good is a toolbox full of tools nobody asked for? We hope we can make this a one-of-a-kind game together. Join our discord to help influence the direction of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to graduate Early Access in a year from launch.”

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

“Full version will cost a little more and there will be many more customization options, many more template units to choose from, more game boards and most importantly it will be much more stable.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have the core game in place, meaning you can create decks of units with your own abilities and then play online in pvp matches, or locally versus a friend or AI. Currently the range of abilities and units you can create are quite limited, but we hope to quickly expand on this with your feedback.”

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

“Yes, we will gradually bump up the price as the amount of content in the game increases.”

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

“We are building the game from the ground up to adapt to player feedback, so please talk to us here on Steam or Discord to help influence the direction of the game. If you like this idea as mush as us, make sure to make your voice heard!

Join our Discord to be able to communicate with us instantly.”

About This Game


A turn-based tactical board game with card battler elements

One of the biggest issues with current card battlers is that you have to spend a lot of money to stay competitive by frequently purchasing new packs and cards. We believe that this should be free/included once you own the game and so, all future packs containing new official cards, decks and game rules will be available to you at no additional cost. In the future we hope to make it easy to share user generated content within the game so that you always have new and exciting decks to try out. In future versions, and only if needed, we might introduce purchasable cosmetics to cover our maintenance costs.

What is a pack?

A pack contains cards (the actual units on the board), game rules such as win conditions, and pre-made decks so that you can jump right in and get a feel for what the pack offers in terms of abilities and synergies.

Game modes

These are the currently available game modes:

  • Online: Play online against other players, either in public or private matches.
  • Hotseat: Play local matches against another player. Supports Steam Remote Play!
  • Practice: Play local matches against the AI.
  • Campaign: Not available yet but will feature challenges and boss fights!


What can be created?

You can create units and customize their name, movement patterns, portrait, power level and abilities. Abilities are created with our unique in-game editor and allows you to create both passive and active abilities. Passive abilities triggers automatically based on its conditions/requirements. Active abilities are triggered by the player and on its own turn. Here are a few examples:

  • Trample units and freeze them for x turns.
  • Spend x mana to self detonate at the end of the turn, destroying all nearby units.
  • Charge for x turns and then unleash a storm of magic missiles, destroying all units in a forward line.
  • When your unit is overtaken, stun its attacker for x turns.
  • Spend x mana to unfreeze your allies and destroy all frozen enemy units.
  • When overtaking an enemy, become immune to magic attacks for x turns.
  • Poison all undead opponents wielding a weapon for x turns.

Win conditions

You can also create custom win conditions, currently following a chess style format, such as:

  • Capture the king: Take out the opponent king to win.
  • Four Pawns To Victory: Take out 4 or more opponent pawns to win.
  • Rush: Get your opponent down to 10 units or less to win.

System Requirements

    Minimum:
    • OS: Windows 7
    • Processor: Intel Core i5-3570K
    • Memory: 4 GB RAM
    • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 550
    • Network: Broadband Internet connection
