Four Gods sleep under the Kingdoms of Men…harness their power!
It is you who know the truth of this world. You are one of the chosen few who know of the four Ancient Gods – infinite beings forgotten by history. Each god’s Sphere of Influence still permeates this world -- all living things are subconsciously bound to one of them. Tapping into the Spheres of Influence, you summon and command the might of enormous monsters, epic heroes and arcane dragons to defeat your enemies!
Each duel brings new challenges, with the huge amount of cards available, you’ll always be up against strategies that push the limits of Alteil’s various gameplay mechanics – such as the day/night cycle and its effects on undead and lycanthropes, the Soul Card system that lets each player fine tune their Life Point total to better compliment rush or combo play styles, and the Revival system that turns extra copies of a unit in the deck into ‘extra lives’ for that unit on the field. Every match also yields exciting treasure drops, to help you build a vast card collection or just fine-tune and perfect your favorite decks!
In addition to completing a successful Kickstarter and presenting at the Indie Megabooth at PAX East 2014, we’ve been lucky enough to get some great press for Alteil: Horizons. Here’s what they’re saying:
Kotaku praised the team of artists, saying “Alteil: Horizons is actually an all-stars kind of ensemble title.”
MMO Attack focused on the game, saying “Horizons combines what players love from their favorite trading card games with RPG elements”
Massively.joystiq names Alteil a “contender in the ring” in the card combat genre against HEX and Hearthstone.
They also put Alteil at the top of their 2013 summer list of crowd-funding projects to watch!
The Examiner noted, what “sets this game apart from its rivals is the amount and quality of the game’s art.”
JStationX calls Alteil Horizons “the next best card-based RPG.”
