Another CCG with board-game elements has hit Steam -- and hey, it actually looks pretty nice, both in terms of graphics and gameplay. It's even got some unique features designed to make it a communal experience for streamers and their viewers.

In Spiritwalk Games' Shardbound, the ancient world above is crumbling, leading to a "land rush" by various noble houses to claim the shards of power that are tumbling to the earth. There are six factions for players to go with, and hundreds of units overall that can make up your forces. As in similar games, like Duelyst and Faeria, you'll need to master terrain and positioning to succeed in PvP matches.

Where Shardbound stands out is its community integration. You form those noble houses with friends -- an analog to guilds, perhaps. And when you watch a streamer playing Shardfall, you can join forces with them, earning more loot for everyone. If all that sounds interesting to you, check out the game's website or download it from Steam.

Early access and founder and all that other pay before the game is finished is very very slowly becoming more aware & is the slowest death ever seen on the PC market. As its so untrustworthy, very disappointing to say the least, & completely disheartening to be apart of a constant unfinished project.
Paying to work for a unknown or know game company is the most stupidest thing to ever fall upon PC game players.
A lot of players just keep on applying this over and over again, wasted 100's of millions of dollars.
Paying to test a game that never has a end result is so wrong,
its has to be criminal to be in any form of pay to play early access.

That's not a bad looking game just not for me ... Magic The Gathering is the only ccg/tcg for me.
