Reviews

“[While at the Australian EB Expo] Nothing even came close to the level of quality of Infinity Wars. It almost shouldn't have been in the same area; it should have been in an open space, where everybody was guaranteed to walk by. The game deserved that level of foot traffic.”
ABC Tech

“The single best designed digital card game on the market!”
Colt Hallam

“I have been waiting for a TCG like this for a long time.”

About This Game



Welcome to Infinity Wars Classic.

Infinity Wars is a unique trading card game that blends rich lore and artwork with innovative gameplay mechanics that are both simple to learn, and hard to master. With fully animated artwork, eight unique factions to play and master, and constant updates as the game is actively developed, Infinity Wars Classic is an experience you will only find here!

Do You Hate Pay To Win?

We despise it. So much so that we've completely revamped our monetisation model to ensure every new and returning player has free access to every card we've ever made as well as any from this upcoming set and any future sets for Infinity Wars Classic.





Newest Set Kickstarter NOW LIVE!
Our Kickstarter for our newest set "Intrigue" is live right now over at Kickstarter. Including platinum bordered and other exclusive items never to be available again, this is the best time to get into or back into Infinity Wars. Support us in our crusade to bring death to pay to win in card games!

  • Death to Pay to Win - Never have to pay or grind for a card, ever again! Every player has free access to every card we've ever made and will ever make. Any player already heavily financially invested in another card game, can jump into Infinity Wars Classic (IWC) right now, and not be destroyed by veteran players, just because they haven’t collected enough cards to be competitive.
  • Unrivaled Strategic Depth - Outmaneuver your opponents with defensive and offensive posturing. With the simultaneous-turn mechanic, foresight and cunning will prove the difference between victory and defeat.
  • Fully Animated Artwork - Breathe life into your trading card experience with 3D battlefields and over 800 beautifully animated cards.
  • Custom Card Artwork & Name Editor - Rename, and reskin any card you want to in the game to be literally whatever you want. The game will be personalised in a way you’ve never been able to before, simply by selecting an image from your computer.
  • Player First Active Dev Team - With regular surveys, we plan our roadmap according to what our players want. Our team is working closest with our most passionate players over on Discord, where anyone and everyone is invited to share their experiences and shape the game’s development, design and future! Join us now using this link: http://www.discord.gg/y8KGxk4
  • Rich PvP Game Modes - Craft your deck and take to the battlefield in ranked and casual play; draft decks and join Rift Runs to score epics rewards; battle opponents with curated decks to explore new cards and ensure a level playing field for newer PvP players.
  • A Complete Free to play Experience - While our game was previously in Pre-Alpha and required Patreon access to play the full game, we are now free to play for all users, including a prestige pass (free battle pass) and new sets being made regularly as of August 2022.


The Following features existed in the original Infinity Wars 1, and are confirmed to be in production for Infinity Wars Classic.

  • Unlimited Card Trading - Build your decks with precision and engage the community with an unlimited card trading system. There is also the aim to let players put their cards on the Steam Marketplace, however, this requires more work to confirm it as possible.
  • Other Features Upon Voting - We need to find the balance between bringing back old features and working on new ones as voted on by the players. If you want to see a previous feature be brought back and improved upon, jump in and have your say!










    In 2014, Infinity Wars released on Steam, seeing instant popularity due to the unique structure of simultaneous turns never having been tackled by a TCG as expertly before. The game was supported for many years with 6 full brand new sets of cards being released over time. However, the developers Lightmare Studios were a very small, young studio. There were a lot of industry-standard practices that the team just didn’t know about. Zero comments were left on the code, little to no documentation on coding standards was made, and each and every card was hard coded with its effects, creating massive amounts of redundancy, and what experts would refer to as “spaghetti code”. This led to increasingly severe technical difficulties, and the team was tunnel visioned on chasing features and new set releases, exacerbating problems.

    With no way to fix the problem, we signed our game over to our Publisher to let them handle it, however, the problems were much too severe to be fixed even by them, and even small bug fixes became monumental tasks. It wasn’t long before the game was left as it was, with the servers being hosted, but no significant support. And in 2019, Lightmare took back the servers to prevent them from being shut down. Despite the game significantly draining resources, it was kept online for a further year as a service to the few players who remained, before we finally had to put the servers on ice.

    Shortly after, we finally broke the news that we were working on Infinity Wars Classic - a technical remaster built from the ground up using the Infinity Card Engine (born through Infinity Heroes’ early development) to be a much more technically functional version of the game our fans had enjoyed playing for years. In October 2020, we released our Pre-alpha version 0.01 of IWC, which featured only 49 cards. As of September 2022, we’re now in public free access, but still in active development towards a fully remastered product, and currently has all Infinity Wars 1 cards (not including 3rd party ones) and the first 60 from the upcoming Intrigue set, due for release on the 10th of September 2022. It features a brand new deckbuilder, and in the backend a module-based card creation system, allowing for far more frequent content.

    We want to do right by our oldest players, so one of the biggest things I want to highlight is that players from Infinity Wars 1’s time can import their IW1 collections into IWC. That means your old collections you spent time and money on are going to be yours eventually. This is currently available in game, and you can make the request from the profile page. Using the same email as your Infinity Wars 1 account will minimise wait time on porting your collection over.



    Infinity Heroes is our cross-platform sister product to Infinity Wars, with a much more simplified and streamlined gameplay style. Players can choose any three decks from over 25 hero decks to form their squad, making it easier for casual gamers to enjoy simultaneous turn strategy card games without diving into the deep end of an immensely large skill cap game like Infinity Wars. Currently in Open Beta it will eventually release as a crossplay title across Mobile and Steam, and will work with all Infinity accounts, meaning your items, currencies and progress is tracked between all of our games.

    Jump into the game now, for a faster, more focused Infinity card experience.

    Infinity Wars 2 is a title in pre-development and prototyping, and will be the game that releases as a sequel to Infinity Wars, with a completely fresh style of game, built on the experiences of developing Infinity Wars 1, and creating something that has the potential to feel like a AAA trading card game. We’re currently in discussions with partners, providers and publishers so you can help us make Infinity Wars 2 a reality by heading to the Steam Store and adding the game to your wishlist. You’ll also be the first to hear about any progress being made on the game’s development or status.
