WHAT IS ARCANIUM?
ARCANIUM is the first Real-time strategy card game merging both Roguelike and Deckbuilding genres. The game is created by indie developer Supercombo (US).
ARCANIUM is set in a fantasy world of anthropomorphic animals where good, evil, magic and technology collide. Form a party of three adventurers and embark on your journey to save the world of Arzu from destruction. With hundreds of cards to unlock - mighty Heroes, powerful Artifacts and Runes, as well as devastating abilities - every journey is always guaranteed to be unique.
Currently in development, Arcanium will be available in early access on Steam for PC during Q4 of 2019.
A VAST OPEN WORLD TO EXPLORE
Arcanium is a Rogue-like game at heart, and features never-seen-before mechanics:
At the start of each Run, the player selects 3 unique Heroes with a starting composition and strategy in mind. With 24 Heroes at launch, the combinations are virtually endless!
The goal is to explore the vast open World comprised of 7 Provinces, and collect 3 Shards in order unlock the Final Boss. All Provinces are procedurally generated and give players total control over their path. Nodes will randomly turn into Battles, Events, Quests, Inns and Merchants and Trainers where you purchase extra cards and consumables.
REAL-TIME & PAUSABLE COMBAT SYSTEM
Arcanium features a unique combat system that takes place in real time and lets you queue your actions while paused. Your 3 Heroes must face tough strategic choices with every enemy encounter.
Timing is everything! in Arcanium, a split second will make the difference between life and death.
Heroes can swap with each other, allowing the tougher characters to step in front of incoming damage and save the more fragile characters.
ROGUE-LIKE & DECKBUILDING CARD GAME
The deck-building part of the game requires players to develop a strategy on the fly, based on the cards they receive from battles, quests and bosses. The players must strategically decide which cards are the best fit to augment their team, which cards synergize well with their Heroes, and when to sell unwanted cards at the vendor.
Artifacts come in 4 rarity levels (Common, Rare, Epic and Legendary) and each Hero can equip up to 3 of them. Craft, purchase, or Discover powerful Artifact combinations and wreak havoc on your foes.
LONG TERM PROGRESSION
Completed or failed journeys contribute points towards unlocking new content. All newly discovered Heroes, Runes and Cards will be available to use in future journeys. Arcanium promises never ending fun, and constantly challenging procedural content that will keep you on your toes.
