Into the Action

Infinity Heroes is a simultaneous turn-based strategy card game for mobile and PC which promises an evolved playing experience with the introduction of pre-defined decks that you can manipulate with in-game choices. Gameplay has been designed to let you jump into the action, whether you’re a casual player or competitive streamer. Games can also be played at a competitive level without spending a cent.

Strategic Simultaneous Turns

Two players, planning their turns out at the same time.
Two players, planning their turns out at the same time.

Simultaneous turns are a unique game mechanic for Infinity Heroes. Players initiate their planning phases simultaneously with everything resolving at once. In this system, based on our previous game Infinity Wars, a whole new level of strategy has been added to the game that forces players to predict and outmanoeuvre their opponents. Support? Attack? Defend? The choice is open!

Taking turns in order is simple, there’s usually one or two good moves and the rest are subpar. However, with simultaneous turns, a psychological element is added (like Poker) where your opponent’s turn directly affects how you play.

WINNING YOUR BATTLES

The final resolution moments of a neck and neck game
The final resolution moments of a neck and neck game

The battlefield has limited spaces available giving a greater importance on unit placement. If too many small unit cards are placed down rapidly, players may miss out of the opportunity to play more impactful units. Thus, moving units between lanes can (and will) become more difficult.

This is balanced out by a hand refill mechanic where 4 cards are refilled at the end of each turn. This provides players with adequate time and information to react to an opponent’s action.

Through the implementation of lanes, we’ve constructed a MOBA-like experience to allow for strategic decisions to respond to specific threats on the battlefield.

CRAFT PERSONALIZED HEROES, SPELLS AND CARDS

Customise your cards!
Customise your cards!

This feature has been made with creatives in mind. We’re providing players with the chance to bring their creations to life in Infinity Heroes. Our in-game hero deck designer allows for artwork to be uploaded and applied to a player’s cards. From there, players will be able to name heroes, set their power levels and costs, give them effects, and upload their decks online to show off their creations.

Like dinosaurs? Make 'em! Vampires? Sure, why not? Garlic spells? (is that a thing?). The point here is, the option is there to create ANYTHING...within reason. We've provided players with the freedom to become the heroes they want to be!

ASSEMBLE YOUR HERO LINE-UP

Choose your hero lineup, and refine your strategy
Choose your hero lineup, and refine your strategy

Players can pick three Heroes for their line-up. As each turn begins, players can pick a hero from their line-up to take into that turn. The hero selected will determine which cards are drawn for that turn, what ultimates are accessed, and the hero power. This allows multiple strategies and strengths in a line-up for players to adapt their gameplay strategy as the game progresses.

These three Heroes each have a unique pool of cards under their command. At the start of each turn, you will select which hero will lead your assault. This will determine which deck your next card will come from. This system turns deck building into a dynamic part of your gameplay experience because you tweak your deck to your preferences at each and every turn.

GET SPOILT

 We’ve developed Infinity Heroes with variety in mind. With a rotating roster of heroes, players are spoilt for choice! Our most recent Hero Spotlight on Aberion, will give you some insight on how we design and plan out decks:

PARTNERS

Our first partnered I.P. is Luminous Ages, who are bringing their amazing fantasy world and artwork to Infinity Heroes. The creator, Antonios Christou, is a creator from our home soil of Australia, and we're excited to have him on board as the first official partner.

THE STUDIO  

Lightmare Studios is a Game Development and Training facility comprised of some of the best talent the industry has to offer. In over a decade of operation, Lightmare has trained over 2,000 junior game developers in Australia. Their most successful launch titles to date have been Infinity Wars, a free-to-play trading card game launched on Steam in 2013, and Omni, a MOBA title launched in the Philippines a few years earlier.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges for an established studio like Lightmare Studios are a bit less substantial, but we still do have them.

Accounts - We're looking at bringing over Lightmare accounts for Infinity Wars, and possibly rewarding our veteran players from our last game, but currently there's been some obstacles preventing us from doing this. We're working on it, but there's no way to fully know how this will go.

Funding - While we're an established studio, and can fund most of the development costs for a game, we do need an initial proof of interest from the crowdfunding campaign to justify the costs associated with game development.

    AMMENDMENT: Delivery Dates

    The delivery dates on the tiers are causing a bit of confusion, so as an update, the game will be in ALPHA in December 2018, and BETA in March 2019. Thus, the dates of those tiers would be more accurately described with the above dates rather than the dates on those tiers. Sorry for the confusion.
