It's a "Cold Hearted" Christmas...And your presents have arrived! (This is a message from Ross)
I'm stoked to announce that our much anticipated Deck Editor feature for Summoners Fate will launch tonight to coincide with Liz (Alizigators) "Summoners Sunday" live stream tonight on Twitch. The event starts on Twitch at 7PM MT
on Liz's channel here
. Since everyone is in different timezones, you can sign-up in advance
using our handy calendar which should present the event in our local time zone. Let us know you're coming.If you would like to play the build
with us during the Stream, join our Discord
and send a message to me (@RossD20Studios) so I can provide you with download instructions.
For tonight's event, we're playing exclusively on PC so I can patch in the event of any issues. Per popular demand, we're rolling this build out early knowing that we couldn't test every possible card combinations' impact to build stability, though we have done a thorough smoke test and fixed everything we can to ensure a smooth experience. For those already participating in our early access, I will have a full list of change notes available shortly.Meet the Cold Hearteds
Jump right into battle with our new faction: the "Cold Hearteds
". They are a gang of bandits and assassins led by Cora the Ice Queen, a summoner with the power to command the cold. Joining her in battle is the Assassin, who introduces tension building stealth mechanics to combat, and the Bandit Leader, who uses her seasoned experience to bolster your forces and her own fighting ability alike. An arsenal of appropriately "cold and cruel" spells compliments this new faction with abilities that will surprise and decimate your opponents.A small taste of what you can expect from this eclectic group!Just how awesome will deck building be?
Very awesome! So awesome that your mind will explode contemplating the numerous teams you can assemble, the synergies of the cards, and the most satisfying and creative ways to win. If you're familiar with my design style, you know I don't waste time with filler. If a card isn't amazing, I go back to the drawing board until I find that special place where it puts a smile on my face to see it draw from the deck into my hand.
The deck builder design itself is the culmination of many restless hours, and quite possibility, it's the only one of its kind in existence that seamlessly supports both portrait and landscape modes. The user interface can be handled with just one hand, if need be, for those inopportune moments when creativity strikes you.
I'm particularly proud of our Deck Editor's ability to let you see and edit your entire deck at a glance without having to scroll. Then, for the more detail oriented folks that like to "spread out their cards on the mattress" to consider what needs to be taken out or put in, there is an inspect mode that lets you see the cards laid out in a nice, sortable interface where you can see the full cards.
