Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have been in Early Access for more than a year now. We have used it to test balance, new modes, systems and much more. The current version is basically a finished game and you should not find more bugs than you would in a released game.
The main things we need to finish before launch is a robust server structure and a guild system. Once that's ready we'll launch!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning on a full release in Q1 2019.”

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

“Here's a list of things we would like to look into with you before we leave Early Access:

  • Robust Server Structure
  • Guilds

Already Done:
  • DONE: Lots of new Minions, Spells and Buildings
  • DONE: Balancing
  • DONE: 9 Masters
  • DONE: 2vs2
  • DONE: Leaderboards
  • DONE: Expedition mode
  • DONE: Mayhem mode
  • DONE: Draft mode
  • DONE: Expedition Overall polish
  • DONE: Achievements
  • DONE: Friend listing
  • DONE: Profile summaries

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“You can basically consider it a final game, but a robust server structure and a guild system is the last two parts before launch.
Note also, your progress will not be wiped when leaving Early Access, it's yours to keep.”

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

“Minion Masters will remain free to play after release. Minion Masters had a premium price for a while during Early Access, which offered some bonus content including a gift on release day. This gift will still be given to players who got the game while it was paid in Early Access.”

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

“We are always very active on the Steam Community forums where we collect your feedback and engage in the discussions. We will also be playing a lot and chatting with you in the in-game chat.
On top of that we have a suggestion system.”

Update 93 - The last Early Access update

Minion Masters!

This Update is a preparatory patch for Xbox Flight to be on the same server as our Discord and Steam users in roughly a week. We’ve included a lot of optimisation changes as well ahead of release, which we are currently planning for the release of Bones and Bravery on Friday the 24th of May. Expect to hear lots of news in the coming weeks as we rapidly approach the exciting launch of v1.0 of Minion Masters!


  • Many various optimisation improvements.
  • Added more Power Tokens to the Recruit Friend rewards. These extra Power Tokens will be claimable from the Referral menu if you previously achieved the number of Referrals required.


  • Fixed Guild Conquest Season 2 Rewards being unclaimable if a user had joined the guild late in the previous Conquest Season. The rewards can now be claimed.
  • Fixed Guild Conquest Leaderboard Rewards incorrectly being rewarded twice visually - Thanks to the PuffChamp Guild!
  • Fixed Ruffles being invisible on certain Diona skins - Thanks TomatoMato!

Cheers from BetaDwarf!

Update 92 - Zen-Chi Zap

Minion Masters!

Zen-Chi Zap is here! The 6th Battle Pass features a collection of content from the mysterious Zen-Chi faction.

This Battle Pass will be a “Mini-Pass”

The Mini-Pass is intended to be a shorter experience, and thus easier to complete.
Everything is halved compared to last Battle Pass.
  • Half the price.
  • Half the tiers.
  • Half the cards/skins.
  • Half the duration.
Note that this is not a permanent change to the Battle Pass format.
The Mini-Pass gives the opportunity to explore more places around the game world between Battle Passes.

Zen-Chi Zap
Welcome to the jungle we take it day by day.
If you want it you're gonna bleed but it's the price to pay.

  • This content season will last for 5 weeks!
  • 4 new cards have been released! These are:

A new Conquest Season has started
The “PuffChamp” Guild took number in season 1, with all its members receiving the awesome prize; 5 copies of a random Legendary card.

A new season starts today, lasting 5 weeks.
Enjoy the changes and iterations with this patch, we’re looking forward to watching the leaderboard!

  • Balance - Combustion
    • Explosion delay increased from 1 to 2 (total delay is now 3 seconds from casting to explosion)
  • Volco’s model has been updated on all skins, including a new animation set and a victory animation.
  • You can now view past season leaderboards for Guilds.
  • Added a timer to Conquest Cards to try to better indicate their non-permanency.

  • Fixed an issue where players could get stuck due to joining a guild after entering matchmaking.
  • Fixed an issue where currency would not be displayed when crafting cards.

Cheers from BetaDwarf!

About This Game

Engage in epic 1v1 or 2v2 battles, in this fast-paced strategic minion brawler that's easy to pick-up but hard to master.
In Minion Masters there are many different Masters with unique hero abilities and you collect awesome minions like fierce demons, cute creatures, devastating spells and much more.
Utilize your minions to destroy the enemy Master! When a minion has been summoned they can no longer be controlled, so place them wisely to win!

Game Modes

  • 1v1 - Fight against other players and see how far your skills can take you. The rank of Grandmaster awaits if you become one of the best!
  • 2v2 - Join with your friend or queue up with strangers to take down other teams in this super intense 2v2 action. Twice the minions, twice the action!
  • 1v1 Draft - Build your deck from a random selection of cards each run. You gain better rewards if you defeat more opponents, but be careful, 3 losses and you're out!
  • Mayhem - New crazy rules to try out every week!
  • Expeditions - Rewarding and challenging journeys!
  • Solo challenges - Hone your skills by practicing against AI Masters!

Legendary Masters

Learning how to use your master’s abilities to their full potential and building your deck around them is crucial for victory! Each Master has their own unique personality and play-style, with opportunities for all kinds of strategies! Only the most determined players learn to use a Master to their greatest potential!

Unlock and Craft Mighty Minions and Spicy Spells!

Over 100 unique cards (minions, spells, buildings) with more being added all the time!

  • Like the peace-loving Mana Puff, that gives you extra mana when it's happy - which is always!
  • Or the Troubadour, who refuses to do anything but play his bagpipe, making all the other minions attack him regardless of what else is going on just to make it stop...
  • Of course, you could also get the Undying Skeleton who comes back to life after you kill it!

Free Expansions!

We are constantly adding new content to the game, it is a priority for us that you will always have new stuff to experience and master! A lot of our new content comes from our regular big expansion packs, they contain new cards, skins, avatars, emotes or even new Masters and are released roughly every two months.


New expeditions appear in the game all the time. Travel around the world of Minion Masters to explore new worlds, fight other players and defeat PvE challenges that lead to epic loot!


We believe in creating a forever fun and always engaging experience in Minion Masters, so we regularly spice things up with new events that last for a limited time. They range from challenges, friend events, tournaments, to new game modes, bonus quests and many more.


We have a thriving community in our steam forums and in-game where both developers and players answer questions, discuss and help you learn the game.
Come join us now!!


Customize your character with epic skins!

You can even change your side of the playing area to a look that suits you, by swapping your arena with a new one. Want to fight on a lava world? Maybe in a sunken temple? Or a graveyard? There are many options and the choice is yours.

Gameplay description

  • Each player has a pool of mana and a deck of 10 cards (minions/spells/buildings).
    A card can costs between 0-10 mana and your mana regenerates over time during the match.
  • There are 2 bridges in the middle that you need to capture and hold. They generate experience so your hero can level up his abilities before the enemy.
  • You place minions on your side of the arena and the goal is to have them destroy the enemy’s tower.
  • Minions have minds of their own and once you have summoned them, they can no longer be controlled, so place them wisely!
  • Most minions have unique abilities. A few examples of this are: AOE damage, healing, teleporting, mana regen, flying and many more.
  • Spells can be used to change the flow of the game in your favour. Spells such as healing, mind control or stuns can be devastating in the hands of a skilled player.
  • Each hero has unique abilities that change the game drastically as they become active.
  • Awareness, strategy and dedication is needed if you want to become great at the game.

Join in and have fun in our amazing world of Minion Masters!
