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:

Todo:
  • 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?

“We would like to make you aware that Minion Masters will be Free to play in the future. If you buy the Steam Early Access version you will immediately get the Nightbringer Master Skin and a great gift when the game is fully released. This means that you will get much more in-game value than the price you pay for the Early Access version. The free to play version will not include this value.
Additionally, when you purchase the Early Access version, you get 1 extra tradeable Minion Masters key right away.”

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 82


Minion Masters!
We’ve received some great feedback from you with the latest patches, and we’re iterating on the Streamer Features and bringing in a new Key-based Event for you to enjoy. Let’s dive right in to what you can expect from Update 82.

Card-House Contest
We’re starting up another key event with this patch! This time you’ll be voting for your favourite of three cards to be added to Minion Masters in the future. The event will last for 5 weeks, from November 14th to December 17th, so there’s plenty of time to collect all the keys your want and make your decision. There will be 20 keys per team to collect again, and each team is split into different houses, with a different card to vote for:

  • House Valor: Stormbringer, Ravager, Apep
  • House Triumph: Volco, King Puff, Settsu
  • House Glory: Mordar, Ratbo, Milloween

When you open the chest for your team and card of choice, you will be registering your vote for that card. As always, you can only open the chest once, so choose wisely! Here's what team represents what card:

  • House Valor: Stormy - If this cloudy little helper attacks your target, they’re in for a world of hurt!
  • House Triumph: Charger - Charges into the fray with reckless abandon! It might not be the smartest minion around, though.
  • House Glory: Mal'Shar - An assassin with a powerful electric fork. It's rumoured he killed a Storm Spirit to infuse it!

The reward for opening the chest in the Card-House Contest is 2 copies of a random legendary card. We decided to move away from giving the chosen card for free as it caused a lot of frustration regarding how long it took Wheel of Doom to be implemented into the game, leaving a lot of the users that completed that previous event feeling they didn’t actually get their reward until months down the line.
We’re planning for a January release of the winner of this event, but as always this can be subject to change.

Streamer Feature Iterations
  • We’ve revamped the previous Streamer Arena to help set it apart from the Default arena a bit more - A couple of boxes really didn’t fit your grand twitch audiences, after all. Now we have a full stadium setup with proper seating available for your puffs to cheer you on from.
  • The Streamer Arena will now be prioritized when queuing in 2v2.
  • The Audience puffs' character limit has been increased to 12.
  • Some known bots have been added to a blacklist so that they will not show up in-game.
  • Added a /kickaudience [NAME] command to remove a puff from your audience.
  • Viewers that donate bits to your stream through the "party" bit will have their name turn Golden until the Streamer exits the game. They will also be prioritised higher for the Streamer audience if there are too many viewers to fit in the arena.
  • Viewers can now customise their puff’s appearance by typing a colour of choice, and then either Hat, Body, Hand or Flag in the following format: [COLOUR] [PART]. These will persist in-game and last until the game is closed.
    For example: Red Flag
  • The Jump command’s animation has been redone.
  • Viewers can throw miscellaneous objects around the arena in-game, now. The chat command is: throw X Y, where X is Force, and Y is Direction. The maximum for both X and Y is 100. Each viewer can only throw 3 objects during a match.
    For example: throw 75 50

Misc
  • Increased the size of the card description text slightly.
Bugs
  • Fixed a bug with Rabid Prowler having Frenzy again.
  • Fixed an issue with Dark Fury Storm Ranger.
  • Fixed Brutish Betrayer being able to have the Turncoat buff twice.
  • Fixed Emote previews being invisible.
  • Fixed the Streamer UI avatars facing outwards.
  • Fixed Crystal Stormbringer having snow on him in the Snow skybox.
  • Fixed the Streamer Arena saying it would be available in future shop offers - Thanks Crabhead!
  • Fixed an instance where taunts didn't properly redirect Minion attacks - Thanks Greywolf!
  • Fixed the Emote tower being unusable for the rest of the match if you and a premade partner use the High Five emote - Thanks Julaiwnl!
  • Fixed an issue where clicking on a spot in the Twitch Boost page would bring up the legal webpage - Thanks Crabhead & Omicron666!
  • Fixed an issue where units that had their mana cost increased by Disruptor Puffs would not lose buffs gained from King Puff's second perk when they are returned to their normal mana cost - Thanks Julaiwnl!
  • Fixed an issue where a unit can take a bridge and then not contest it when another unit steps onto it - Thanks Omicron666!
  • Fixed an issue where Wizard Puff's polymorphed Mana Puff would start generating mana before it reached the bridge - Thanks Khazlariko!
  • Fixed an issue where Milloween's attack delay would reset when all units within her range die, and then new units enter - Thanks Steven!
  • Fixed 2v2 Mayhem only letting you see one opponent's deck - Thanks Omicron666!
  • Fixed Blood Infested Settsu having the same ragdoll as the regular Infested Settsu - Thanks Elide!
  • Fixed the Premium Upgrade still appearing to be purchasable in the same session you bought it on Discord - Thanks Rosey!
  • Fixed the "Get the game FREE" text being cut off - Thanks Hayazo & Excaliber80!

Cheers from BetaDwarf!

Update 81



Minion Masters!
The Memote Mêlée has finally ended, with Team PuffChamp having the most members by a landslide. Thanks to everyone who participated and got involved with the community during the event!

But with that out of the way, we’ve got the long awaited Wheel of Doom release as well as some new features for our Streamer audience!

Wheel of Doom
The Wheel of Doom is finally here! This legendary card is the easiest way to create some chaos on the battlefield and was the winner of the Best of House Valor event quite some time ago. Everyone who completed that event will receive a free copy of the card, whereas for other users it’s available for crafting as of this update. But what is the Wheel of Doom, you ask?

It’s a 4 mana line AoE spell, firstly. Think about it like how Milloween’s Arcane Missiles are cast in that regard, but with a larger radius. This spinning death wheel will deal two instances of 150 damage to any unit it comes into contact with (including your own), dealing a total of 300 damage (50% to Master tower). However, if any unit survives both hits, the wheel will shatter and the spell will end, leaving everything behind the unit unharmed. Get out there and cause some mayhem!

Streamer Arena
This new arena you’ll notice on the Arena selection will become available when the game detects someone is streaming through the Twitch Boost feature. It’s like the default arena, but your audience can pop in to cheer you on in your matches as puff fans! They can emote and jump around while you’re in the menus or while you’re playing the game using commands in twitch chat. You can find all of the currently available commands here: http://minionmaster.com/streamerboost

To disable this feature, simply select another arena. This is a first iteration, so we’re looking forward to getting your feedback on what we can change or improve! Make sure to give us your feedback on our Stomt, Discord or Steam Forums.

Streamer Battle UI
We’re also including an optional alternate UI designed to help streamers find the space to fit all of their graphics and cameras. Selectable in the Settings menu under either Twitch Boost or the Visual settings, this will rearrange parts of the UI to give you plenty of space at the bottom of the screen to put your webcam, streamer graphics, and anything else you want to store. Give it a try and let us know what you think!

Misc
  • The Twitch Memote Melee event has ended, and Watch & Win codes are back to giving 200 Gold again.
  • There is now a notification underneath the Battle Pass if you have unclaimed rewards.
  • The Featured Shop Offer slots now rotate between two different featured offers. This means there are now four featured offers at a time.
  • Added a button on the menu that will take you to a Youtube search for Minion Masters videos underneath the Twitch Panel.
  • The Master Tower ragdoll has been updated to better fit the new one.
  • The Gold tooltip has been updated to mention Shop Offers, Draft Tickets and Mayhem Runs - Thanks Steven!

Bugs
  • Fixed an issue with the Russian translation that would crash the game.
  • Fixed an issue with the Spanish translation that would make 1 mana Soul Stealers invade the Deckbuilding.
  • Fixed Assassin not benefitting from King Puff’s second perk properly - Thanks Mutrock!
  • Fixed Raging Reinforcements missing its high resolution Card Art.
  • Fixed an instance where Zeppelin Bomber could hit Troubadour from a long distance - Thanks Greywolf!
  • Fixed the Armored Escort icon not appearing on the enemy master when cast.
  • Fixed the Mana Surge bar not appearing if you had a Mana Surge card in your opening hand.
  • Fixed Morgrul the Swarmer King not properly granting on-kill benefits to Soul Stealer when killed - Thanks Xiniu!
  • Fixed the friends list being bugged sometimes in Expeditions - Thanks Crabhead!
  • Fixed Re-boomer being stuck in a Sacrifice state if killed while under the effects of Gor’Rakk Sacrifice - Thanks BOB!

Reviews

  • "It’s pretty fun. Ultimately it’s a pretty damn good version of the Clash Royale model."
    TotalBiscuit
  • "Is this by those Forced Showdown guys?! Is this the greatest game of all time?"
    PennyArcade
  • "Pick Up and Play PvP at its finest"
    GameSkinny
  • "If you’re familiar with things like Nexus Wars and Castle Attack, or just Clash Royale, you’re immediately gonna be able to pick this game up very very quickly. Obviously there is quite a lot of learning involved with the different troop types and cards available. But it's really slick. It’s plays really really well. It’s a good version of that game type, for PC."

    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.
