MMO gamer Lashing points out that the game isn’t fully complete yet as it’s just a hobby, but it’s still pretty dang amazing. “The game contains leveling Nodes, Corruption, Caravans, Resource management, all 64 Class cards, and more. If there is interest I will finish the art when we get access to more information and art,” he writes. “It is heavily inspired by Magic the Gathering so a lot of the core concepts will be familiar.”
“The Objective of the game is to gather and transfer materials to the node to upgrade it fully. You may also decide to destroy the enemy node by attacking it directly. If you succeed in your attack you win the game. As the node receives materials, it is upgraded. The node has 6 stages. Upon reaching stage 6 you win the game. The node can be attacked so be sure to have some defenders ready to intercept. There is 4 node types to build a deck around. The node tentatively has 30 Health. It currently takes 40 Materials to fully upgrade the node to win. To transfer materials to the node you use a Caravan. A Caravan is vulnerable to attack while traveling.”
Have a look through the docs and everything Lashing uploaded for the playerbase – even unfinished as he says, it’s still impressive work!
