AN EPIC REALTIME CARD ADVENTURE
WATCH THE TRAILER
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 squad 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 early stages of development, Arcanium will be available in early access on Steam for PC during Q3 of 2019.
A VAST WORLD TO EXPLORE
Arcanium plays like a combination of Roguelike and Deckbuilding card games. At the start of the journey, the player selects 3 unique characters with a starting strategy in mind. The goal is to explore and beat 3 of the 10 available Provinces in order to unlock the Final Boss. Each Province is procedurally generated and presents nodes distributed in a branching structure. Nodes will turn into random Encounters you will have to fight, Events, Quests, Merchants to purchase consumables, Forges to upgrade cards, Inns to restore health and many other secrets you will have to discover yourself.
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.
ROGUELIKE DECKBUILDING CARD GAME
The deck-building game requires players to develop a strategy for their deck on the fly based on the cards they can obtain from loot and in synergy with the Heroes they control. The player must strategically decide which cards are the best fit to make the deck effective, when to sell or when to spend money to purchase various consumables and rations.
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 hundred of hours of fun, and constantly challenging procedural content.
THE MIGHTY HEROES OF ARCANIUM
A huge part of what makes Arcanium exhilaratingly fun and unique, is the squad building experience. The game was designed to encourage experimentation and to offer maximum replayability over time. With 25 playable characters and only 3 open spots in your squad, the possibilities are virtually endless! What combination will you choose?
Assassins are the swift and deadly fighters of Arcanium. They shine at close range and can go toe to toe with even the toughest of opponents.
Supports are versatile defensive Heroes. They excel at keeping their squad alive by shielding, healing and removing negative effects from them.
Tanks are the ultimate warriors, capable of withstanding the hardest blows and protect their squad from harm. They also excel at controlling the board and set combos.
Marksmen are high damage dealers with a decent defensive toolkit. They excel at picking off vulnerable single targets thanks to their range and high damage output.
Mages wield powerful offensive spells, but are fragile and lightly armored, making them particularly vulnerable targets. They excel at taking down multiple foes at once.
Mercenaries come in many shapes or forms. They are versatile hired-guns that focus on deploying, taking down and boosting minions. They will fit any squad needing a stronger font line.
