No. War of Omens is a digital card game by design. One of the goals going into this game was to make a card game that wasn't simply a digital emulation of something physical, not only in terms of the physical shape and dimensions of the cards, but also in how the rules and the mechanics work. You really couldn't play WoO on a tabletop.
Take Liet's ability, for example: At start of turn, one drawn card is an ally. If WoO were physical, you'd be hunting through your entire deck every turn. That's cumbersome on the tabletop, but on a computer, it's just fun.Last updated:
We designed the game to run on most systems and in all major PC browsers. We haven't nailed down exact system requirements yet, but we think it's safe to say that if you have a computer from the last 3-4 years, you're probably fine.
War of Omens was written using ActionScript, Starling, and Away3D, and you will need the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player.Last updated:
The only thing we can say about that now, is that you might want to spread the word about the Kickstarter... ;)Last updated:
Leave a comment on our Kickstarter and we'll get you your key ASAP, usually within an hour. We're responding to these manually, and sometimes it can take a bit. Here are some things to keep in mind, with regard to beta:
This is an early access, pre-beta version of the game. While we're very proud of War of Omens, the current state of the game, and the work we're doing, this is a work in progress and this is not indicative of the "final" game we want to release.
All backers will receive beta keys, along with the rest of their rewards, after the Kickstarter is over. This is not a fulfillment of Backer rewards; just a sneak peak, because we really like you folks.
Your data may not persist. This is a test environment and we'll be continuing development, which means that any progress you make, cards you unlock, etc. may be periodically reset, and will almost certainly be reset when we migrate everyone over to the final production servers. Do not become attached to your data right now.
The key we generate for you will only work for you and only work once.
This is a test build in a test environment; there will be issues. This is the client we play on at the office and, for the most part, we have a smooth experience. That being said, the game will crash, cards will do weird things, and that's to be expected.
We totally welcome your feedback, but we don't have a smooth system for addressing or responding yet. This is the first time we've opened the game up to so many people. Feel free to message, e-mail, etc. but know that we might not reply. There's an e-mail link on the game page.
War of Omens runs in any major browser on any decent computer. You'll need a mostly-current version of the Adobe Flash Player to run it, and you'll need Windows or OSX.Last updated:
We've added a la carte add-ons for beta keys, starter faction decks, and premium boosters, so you can add those to any tier.
If you want to see anything else as add-ons, please tell us!Last updated:
We're really humbled by all of the offers for support and work that we got on the first day. Truly humbled.
You can send us a message through Kickstarter and we promise we'll respond. We already have a talented team of professionals working on the game, including engineers, designers, sound, video, UI/UX, producers, and artists, but we're never above checking out someone's work.
If the Kickstarter gets truly massive, we might have to hire someone new!Last updated:
We hear you. We really do. We understand the ire against this kind of business model, and we think a lot of it is deserved.
Here's the thing, though: microtransactions don't HAVE to be evil. We firmly believe that, if done properly and with respect to players, there's nothing wrong with free to play or microtransactions. In fact, if done well we consider it an advantage to the player.
We want to treat players with respect. We want to create a game that can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of their wallet. We are never going to force players to spend money. Everything in War of Omens is designed to be achieved through play, naturally, and at reasonable, enjoyable rates. Paying for gold or paying for premium currency will only get you things faster, and we promise to do everything in our power to create a game where "pay to win" isn't a viable idea.Last updated:
