A battle card game based on battle systems from JRPGS

About this project

Terrene Odyssey is a competitive 1v1 or 2v2 battle card game set in a destabilized fantasy world discovering its ancient industrial past. 

  • Simple Rules. Deep Gameplay.
  • Original Starting Party Composition Mechanic makes for deep strategy while reducing luck.
  • Up to 4 Players in 2v2 Formats.

Experience the amazing battles in Terreria as the commanding officer of your party of adventurers. Each match you play is like random encounter battle in an RPG world, but this time, instead of creatures, you will be fighting other adventurers just as determined as you.  

Terrene Odyssey is designed to be competitively balanced and casually accessible. It was designed from a team of life long gamers with an understanding of competitive play hidden in a simple design. 

  • Character Cards form your party. These are the main cards in Terrene Odyssey. 
  • Terrain Cards represent where your characters are from and affect how they will Level Up. 
  •  Items Cards are physical objects a character can be holding.
  • Command Cards represent orders you give your characters.

Experience all of Terrene Odyssey. This option is perfect for Tabletop nights and for players who want to create their own decks from scratch! All Terrene Odyssey cards are made of high quality 360 gsm ivorycore card stock.

 Jin the Ambitious VS. Zowie the Ingenuic

 Zowie the Ingenuic: Unearth the power of nature and time Recruit aggressive Beast characters that ignore DEF values and land critical hits against your opponent's HP. Use Zowie's Ingenuity to ignore Command card effects and recruit Interdimensional class characters to banish other characters that threaten this world into another time. 

Jin the Ambitious:  Begin the revolution Recruit the power of the ancient Machine class characters. Nothing will stand between you and your ambitions: silence character abilities at key times to remove opponent advantages and your character's drawbacks strategically.

Versus Set Components 

  • Tuck box housing
  • Two 30 card decks (60 cards)
  • Tuckbox sized rulebook
  • Double sided punch board tokens
  • 2 recommended starting party sheets

Character Class Combinations are Key 

Just like in any RPG, you need to round off your team with Characters playing different roles in your party. There are 12 Classes in Terrene Odyssey, each with their own strengths, weaknesses and roles in your party. 

Game Rules - Resources

What is the total cost to make Terrene Odyssey? The total costs for the game is $40,000.  Here is where the $40,000 is going into. We are asking for $10,000 here on Kickstarter to cover manufacturing costs.

Where does the money come from?

Risks and challenges

Terrene Odyssey has faced a ton of barriers in it's 2 year development cycle and we’ve overcome every one of them. Finally, the game is ready to be printed and sent to the publisher, however, Terrene Odyssey still faces the very real challenge of raising funds to cover the games manufacturing.

As a team we’ve learned a lot from our first two Kickstarter’s. We started a community, took action on your feedback, and increased the venues that we’ve shown the game at. We want to bring Terrene Odyssey to the community and the world. Only you can make this a reality.
