About

 Mythix is a new breed of card game that will incorporate RPG aspects along with established card game style and controls for iOS and Android tablets.

Mythix incorporates REAL-TIME game play that is fast paced and gets your heart pumping in a way that most card games fall short. There are no “turns”; every instant that passes is your chance to make or break the battle. Every decision you make will make a difference the second you make it, so choose wisely! 

For more info on our game check out our website www.MythixGame.com.

And for up to the minute updates follow us on Facebook and Twitter 

MYTHIX takes place in a time before all things featuring a group of beings known as the MYTHIX. Being creators of reality itself, and responsible for the four most important things in the universe - Life,Death, Power and Instinct – the MYTHIX hungered for power. Each created a story line to represent their purpose, stories worshiped by the primitive peoples of earth through Greek, Egyptian, Celtic and Nordic myth. Over time the MYTHIX became drunk and blinded by desire for power, and thus, as foretold in a great prophecy, an evil force unseen corrupted the storylines, and in the process human’s belief. Using all of their combined remaining energy, the MYTHIX recruited a mortal champion and imbued him with their power to fix the story, restore mankind’s belief, and raise them to their former glory! 

You, the chosen Champion, must help the great MYTHIX regain their strength, restore belief in the myths and reinstate balance. Should you fail, evil will rise up and destroy all of the great myths causing time itself to unravel. Prepare yourself for the greatest journey of your life!

Historical Accuracy

Mythix is not just an awesome game with an incredible story line. We are working with a historian to ensure the myths, creatures, armor, places, spells etc. are all historically accurate. Mythix will be a compendium of Greek, Celtic, Norse and Egyptian mythology. Not only are players of Mythix going to have an amazing time playing the game, they are going to learn about these ancient mythologies!

In a typical TCG the combat system is based on “phases”, so one player attacks during their “attack phase” and the other players respond to that attack.

Mythix was designed with an innovative REAL TIME combat style that incorporates game play similar to what you would experience in your favorite MMORPG raid. There are “defenders” which act as the tank, “attackers” which act as the main source of damage and “healers” which act as support for your summoned creatures. Combat is fluid and constant and each party member needs to perform their role effectively in order for the group to survive. In Mythix there is a dynamic combat zone where the battle unravels as the clock ticks. The techniques needed to play and win this game are the same techniques you would need to manage a good raid group in your favorite MMORPG!

Like typical TCG's, a card costs belief to play and activate abilities. The real innovation of the belief system is how it is used and regenerated. Your belief is fluid; it gets depleted as cards are cast and abilities activated, but is dynamically regenerated throughout the game by the creatures in play! Cards will generate the type of belief based on the myth it is derived from; Greek, Celtic, Norse or Egyptian. Can you become the ultimate hero and master all four myths at once?!

Health: This is the amount of damage your cards can take before they are defeated. Health is dependent on the type of card in question. In general, defensive cards have higher health, offensive cards have medium health, and healing cards have lower health. 

Aggro: Creatures in the game attack, defend and heal on their own. Aggro is how the game determines who is being attacked. If a healer is using a powerful healing ability, his aggro raises and the enemies will start to focus on him, the same goes for attackers and defenders using their abilities!

Basic Ability: This corresponds to what kind of creature card you have (defensive, offensive or healer). Using basic abilities helps generate small amounts of belief when used. It is “always on”, and is the default behavior of the creature once it is cast. 

Cost: This is how much belief is needed to summon the gods or creatures that will aid you in your battle, or cast spells. There are two types of belief, general belief and belief in a specific myth type. 

Second Ability: This slot is for cards with a special ability, and is also “always on”. They are more powerful than the basic ability and can also have special traits, but generally cost belief to continue using. They usually have a longer “cool-down” timer, another aspect RPG players will identify with.

Super Ability: This ability is usually reserved for the more rare and powerful cards in the game and is generally a very powerful move. The third ability usually has a high belief cost of a specific type and has a far longer cool down compared to other abilities. However the effects are often catastrophic for enemies, or massively beneficial to yourself or your allies.

CARD TYPES


Defensive creatures have higher aggro in order to draw the attention of attacking enemies and are usually armed with abilities that absorb small amounts of damage. In general they do not actively attack the enemy. 


 Offensive creatures have slightly lower aggro than defensive creatures and slightly lower health. Generally, these cards actively attack and damage the creature with the highest aggro.


 Healing creature cards generally have the lowest aggro while also having the lowest health. Healing cards act as a support for your defensive and offensive cards. They usually do not deal damage, but instead restore life or put protective effects on your cards.

The team behind MYTHIX knows that a strong community is key to any successful and fun trading card game. We care about your input, and in fact we are going to listen to anything you gamers have to say! Our goal is to build a community with a sense of ownership, making your input essential to our game making decisions. You will have the chance to vote on your favorite option for several cards, items and world events (stretch goal). Also, all Kick Starter backers of $50 or more will be included to vote on how the bonus dungeon battles play out!

(Disclaimer: the final versions may change based on game play testing and balancing. Don't worry though, we'll keep you in the loop!) 

MULTIPLAYER

With online multiplayer you choose how you duel. You can do a normal battle where you play to destroy your opponent, you can play a wager game where the stakes are higher but the rewards greater, or you can even the playing field in an “open box challenge”! Mythix can be played over blue tooth; you can challenge your friends via Facebook, or use our matchmaking system to start a battle or use our intelligent matchmaking system.

DECK BUILDER

Mythix allows you to build your own deck and customize lethal combos spanning all 4 myth types. The deck you build will be yours to hone and make the best you can. With new cards being won as you play you can make your deck as versatile as you want.

TRADING SYSTEM 

This feature is a stretch goal! Check back for more info if we reach this goal!. 


THE STORY

Although historical fiction, the roots of Mythix are based on real ancient mythology. The stories used in each adventure are authentic and have historical significance in our world. As you play, the game will recognize your victories and defeats. Your actions will determine how your personalized myth is recorded. Track your adventure in the story section of the game. Not every story will be the same; the choices you make will determine how your tale is transcribed. At any time, you can read your very own myth as it's created in the story section of the game. Show your friends and family how much of a hero you can be! 

AVATARS

The avatar system in Mythix makes it easy to customize your character. You can choose your icon, title and display badges of honor.

EQUIPMENT

Throughout the single player campaign, you will have the chance to find and equip armor and belt items that grant special traits to your deck. These will be specialized items that you find throughout the game, some more rare than others. Play through more than once to try to get the best items you can! 

MYTHIX STORE

We are launching a Mythix store, that will allow players to buy cards, decks and items for your character to help improve your game and deck strength. There is also collectible items and cards you can only get in the store to make your Mythix experience fun and individualized just for you, the player. 

ART STYLE & CARD DESIGN

To further immerse you, the content and artwork for the cards are driven by the culture behind the myths.

LIFELIKE AI

Mythix employs an intelligent AI system that is designed to mimic real life decision making. So even when you are not playing with friends, you will feel like you are actually playing against a real person, not just a computer randomly spitting out cards or always making the right decisions.

Thank You All!

Risks and challenges

From AI to Networking to Graphics, there are a lot of moving parts that all need to work together seamlessly to make any modern video game a reality. In addition to the normal challenges when creating a video game, MYTHIX incorporates concepts from several genres into one experience, in a way that's never been done before.

When creating our execution plan and schedule, we recognize the challenges up front and build "buffers" into our estimates, expecting a certain amount of unexpected complications. Our theory is our fans would rather be pleasantly surprised by an early release instead of disappointed by a late release!

That being said, a video game is an incredibly complicated piece of software and no amount of planning can account for all of the complications that could potentially arise. We have a well thought out timeline for implementing the features in MYTHIX, and if things start going over we'll know right away. Our backers can expect a monthly email with the status of the project, so they'll know what's going on as soon as we do!

The AlgoCrunch team is fully committed to MYTHIX. We can't stress this enough: this is the game WE have always wanted to play. With your help and our personal dedication, there is nothing that will stop MYTHIX from becoming everything we know it can be!
