‘Deck of Heroes’ is a… Well, It’s a Card Game

Inspired by Hearthstone and the like (yes, Magic, I mean you too), developer¬†Gamefarm‘s1 upcoming¬†Deck of Heroes is an unapologetic homage to all of those ‘strategic / collectible card games’ that seem to be all the rage to a certain core set of gamers. I can’t count myself among them. I’ve never been a fan or a collector, so admittedly, I can’t quite comment on what makes them special2.

Nor can I sound competent in putting forth the game’s description, but I’ll try:¬†Deck of Heroes allows you to string together a deck from 108 unique cards, then let them loose in turned-based battles between two opponents, either human versus human online / local, or in testing your skills against the game’s AI on your own. Whew, that didn’t sound too bad, did it?

Deck of Heroes is simply ‘coming soon’. (EDIT: Er… tomorrow, I mean. Er… today, actually. Ah, it’s available now.)

  2. But hey, this game’s soundtrack sounds really good.
