It helps to sort cards when deckbuilding...

And now you can! Today, I hooked up the card sort modal in the game and added the functionality. Check it out in this video:

Vertical banner design for an upcoming convention D20Studios will be attending. What do you think?

Deck Builder Update: Arorbus

Our next major feature release will include the deck builder. Yesterday, I worked on a concept called the "Arorbus", which is a UI element added to Summoner cards that indicates which of the 6 magic types you can field in your deck if you choose this character.

Please disregard the art - this is all engineer placeholder art that I needed to verify my filters were working correctly. The original idea of the concept was to show all magic types within their existential creation order (in fact, all the magic types are designed to represent an aspect of existence) with the types the Summoner can command shown in an activated state. So in these examples, a Liche King can field Void and Arcane magic, Li can command Chaos and Celestial, and the Druid can command Chaos and Nature. We hadn't intended this, but the use of combinations also gives rise to potential for a "rainbow" Summoner - maybe our Occuloid would be a good fit? He can command everything but at a severe weakness.

We shared this with our early access playtesters and got unanimous feedback to condense the layout of the design. So, our next iteration will include only icons for the magic types actually controlled and these will appear in the upper left, where the mana icon would normally go. Each of the magic types will also have unique symbols associated to distinguish them for colorblind users.

Screenshot Saturday!



Here is a recent screenshot from an epic game Ross played with an elite player (name removed at the top for privacy). Some interesting things to note are the scorch mark under the Squirrel from a previous Squirrel explosion, the Forcefield surrounding the Arch Mage in the upper left corner (learn more about Forcefield here), and the snow in the shot - in actual gameplay, this snow is animated and adds really interesting effects to the gameplay.

Deck Builder Update
Here is our latest deck builder update (read some of our past ones here, here and here) Per player feedback, Ross has changed the icons from showing all magic groups on the upper right to just showing those applicable to that summoner in the upper right. Again, please note this is not final art, just a placeholder representing the intended layout and functionality.

When you're down to just the Summoners - both of whom happened to be Li the Pyromancer!

Time.



If applicable where you live, did you remember to change your clocks back for the end of Daylight Savings Time?

Time - the manipulation of it and characters who can control it - are one of the unique elements Summoners Fate brings to the turn-based CCG world. Learn more about some of our time spells and those who would dare exploit it here.
