Ok, right out of the gate I’m going to be honest with you. Prismata really interests me. I can’t help it. I enjoy a good card game as much as the next gamer and I’ve spent countless hours in Real Time Strategy (RTS) games like Age of Empires and Starcraft over the years. Putting them together sounds a bit weird, but after watching the “How To Play” video (shown below) I seriously can’t wait to give this game a test drive.
Having said that, it looks like I’ll have to wait a bit. While Lunarch Studios does have a beta sign up page running, the game is currently trying to use Kickstarter to gather the required “resources” they need to launch. Lunarch is still quite a ways away from reaching the goal set for their premier title, but there’s still plenty of time left so here’s to hoping! Luckily, the game itself is pretty darn close to complete. The Kickstarter is mostly being used to fund server structure and some additional game polish
Upon release, Prismata will give all players access to all units (it’s ok to think of them as cards if you want) free. Lunarch looks to be aiming to monitize the game through emote and skin purchases but even those can be earned in game as well. Build units and structures in turn based gameplay all in an effort to demolish your opponent. Each game will also be different from your other games through the use of a pool of “random” units every match. There’s no cookie cutter “deck building” strategy here. Each game will challenge you to come up with new methods of domination.
You know what? I’ve said enough, if this sounds like it’s up your alley too, check out the “How to Play” video below to see the game in action. I will leave you with these few words though: Tournaments, Ladder, Blitz Mode, and Spectating? All there and more.
