What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Since this is the first "Final Stardust" title/installment I want to get as much player feedback as possible before launching the 1.0.0 build. I also want to make sure the game is well balanced for full release.

Even though this is my first commercial title, this game will represent the future games (sequels) that will release under the Final Stardust brand.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I would expect something like 6 months to get enough feedback and make sure the battle system is fully balanced. I plan to update the game weekly since most of the heavy work has been done already. In the end, I want people to love this game and continue to support the Final Stardust brand moving forward.”

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

“All the core features are complete and all the assets are made. So it shouldn't take too long to add more content and have the game ready for full release.

The full release version has to be able to compete with the best card games out there, in terms of quality. No DLCs, once I release the full version I will move on to the sequel.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All of the core features are implemented and all the main assets are complete. You can choose one of the 4 standard decks (venus, mercury, jupiter, mars) and fight against 21 different characters!”

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

“The price might increase with the full release. The early access version will be a bit cheaper to incentivize people to contribute early.”

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

“The whole battle system will be balanced based on player feedback. I have implemented all the ideas I wanted but now it's about creating a fun experience for most people. Discord will probably be the key platform for that.”

About This Game

Final Stardust is a return to basics for Collectible Card Games! It's built around fast-paced, five minute battles thanks to streamlined, easily understandable gameplay. Thanks to instant effects and positioning your monsters - or Planos - it's all about how you play the hand you draw, rather than mastery of meta and min-maxing your deck.

No overcomplicated effects. No special rules. Just you and your opponent, a stack of cards with easily understandable effects, and an endless variety of tactics to use. What matters is your choice here and now.

Mechanics are balanced to ensure fast paced matches that aren't decided in the first ten seconds by luck of the draw. You can always make a comeback with the next hand if you play the cards right, even if you're up against the wall. Worried about stalling? A set turn limit ensures each game wraps up quick!

You don't lose a battle to random chance or the opponent having a one-in-a-million combination of exotic effects. It's all about your choices in each match, making every win and every loss understandable. Once you understand the core mechanics with a few quick matches, it's all down to skill! Even when you’re losing, there’s always an opportunity to strike back and win!
