Kickstarter CCG Allians Puts You -- And Everyone Else -- In The Game
Most CCGs put you in control of powerful wizards, technologically superior aliens, secret agents -- or a combination of all three. Claimony's Allians, an upcoming F2P CCG for Android, iOS, and Steam, has instead decided to take a different path, by putting the players themselves into the game.
Allians uses your Steam profile to create a card with a faction of your choosing and five stats based on your Steam activity. It's easy enough to do via the card creation page on the Allians website. Try it for yourself and see how you match up with my card. Personally, I think I'm OP.
The game is certainly looking to forge a strong link with e-sports. I learned about it via a press release titled "Allians CCG lets you play against the female leads of competitive Counter-Strike" which seemed to go in about three different directions. It's already got a Hall of Fame, which I presume are filled with significant e-sports stars/streamers? Sorry, competitive CS:GO isn't my scene.
As for the game itself, there's a description on the Kickstarter page and you can learn more on the Allians website. Having seen similarly "meta" gaming concepts, I think it'll be a little to esoteric to draw in a huge audience, but at least Claimony has a plan and offers a unique hook to get players interested.
