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.
