Ivion: Fighting Game + Card Game

$21,797

212

 

We created Ivion with a simple premise—to combine the intensity of a fighting game with the strategy of a deckbuilding card game. Stepping away from the traditional booster pack model, Ivion comes complete with every card in the game, and a storage box to organize your collection!

You can view the rulebook here. A print-and-play demo is here, and a Tabletop Simulator version is available here! See the updates section for more information.

Check out the video below for a concise explanation of the rules:

In Ivion, play characters such as massive Giants that smash, crush, and maim their enemies, or Cryomancers that freeze their foes and shatter them in flurries of deadly arcane power. Each game feels unique, cinematic, and absolutely brutal.

If Ivion resonates with you, please take a moment of your time to help us get the word out. We really appreciate your support.

In Ivion, deckbuilding and character building are one and the same. With over 290 unique cards, Ivion's customizability offers a unique experience each time you sit down at the table. Mix and match 6 Classes, 12 Specializations and 54 Feats to create your character!

Battles in Ivion takes place on a 4-by-4 tile grid. The board starts without special ‘Terrain’ or unique effects, but as the combat grows more dire, the board is impacted—destroyed by a Giant’s blows, frozen by a Cryomancer’s touch, or overgrown with a Druid's roots.

Ivion utilizes an action and power system that dynamically flows as the battle rages onward. Play cards that cost actions (top left) to gain power (top right)...

...then spend your power on massive attacks and spells!

One box contains enough cards that six or more decks can be constructed simultaneously. Buy a box and share it with your group or battle your friend's collection with your own. 

Play with or against your friends! Ivion supports both 1 vs 1 dueling and collaborative 2 vs 2 battles. The first to two kills in team battles wins!

Buy Ivion once, get all the cards! Your collection will come in a box to store your decks. No hunting for rare cards; explore the game on your terms.

All cards purchased via Kickstarter come with an exclusive Kickstarter logo, and exclusive promotional art. (Reddit!)

Each character is created with two Classes. Your character's Classes shape their core identity and provide the building blocks of your deck.  

 

Your Specialization adds a unique twist to your character. Each Specialization offers fantastic capabilities that no other archetype can provide.

Risks and challenges

Ivion is a project that has been in development for over 2 years. It has gone through numerous overhauls and faced substantial challenges. From these hardships, we've gained valuable experience in dealing with what is to come.

However, this is our first large-scale production task. While we have already discussed potential for delays with the manufacturers we are working with, it is always possible that additional problems will arise outside our control. If this happens, you, our backers, will be the first to know.

Thanks for taking the time to read through our pitch for Ivion. If you're intrigued by what you've seen, check out our backer tiers and find what's right for you, then leave a comment for us to take a look at! We're happy to answer any questions.

Have a great day!
