FINAL UPDATE: THE FUTURE OF ADVENT SAGA

Unfortunately, We did not meet our goal for Advent Saga on kickstarter. However, during the time of our campaign we received a lot of feedback from players wanting to have cards of their own. This is something we want to make available to you, and additionally, we see this as a great way for us to continue production on the Advent Saga, both digitally and physically.    

With that being said, we'd like to announce the opening of our online store featuring 4 packages that will give each of you a physical Alpha Kit of your own and additional physical and digital rewards. The packages will be mailed out in waves of every 100 buyers beginning in September and all the proceeds will go directly to funding the development of Advent Saga, both as a physical and digital game.

Be sure to make your way to our website and get your cards today!

Advent Saga is our labor of love. It is over a year and a half of dedication from everyone on the team. It is months of brainstorming, play testing, designing and re-designing, and analyzing every detail top to bottom to make a game we're proud of and want to give to you. 

It is a Digital Tactical Card Game (DTCG) that combines the excitement and traditions of popular card games, with the strategic, all-out war, elements of Tactical RPGs. utilizing a battlefield for deep new possibilities in combat strategy. It is a science fiction story putting the player in the position of battling for galactic control while unraveling the mystery of how the war began.

                        

In Advent Saga, a player's goal is to build a strong strategy and have a tactical awareness of their surroundings. This can be the difference between victory and defeat. The truly unique elements of Advent Saga make this a fresh experience for even the most seasoned CCG veterans. 

Before getting started in a game of Advent Saga, players will choose an Advent, a unique character card that possesses specialized powers and abilities.

Once the leader of your deck has been chosen, players then build a deck around their Advent consisting of ArmadaTactics, and Gear to lead them to victory in a campaign to conquer the galactic Battleground!

                      
  • Strategically deploy your forces across a unique 4x4 Battleground and employ precision tactics in an effort to outmaneuver your opponents forces.
  • Assemble the perfect deck around your Advent, the unique, always in-play, character card that represents the core of your strategy and key to your victory. 

    ARMADA
    : Military units possessing stats (AttackDefense, and Range) and abilities to establish Battleground presence.

    TACTICS
    : Instant-use cards that can control and alter the flow of battle.

    GEARS: Enhancements and weaponry to fortify your Armada and gain the upper hand.
     
  • Use Advent Saga’s unique production system to generate vital Resources from any card in your deck to power your forces.
  • Utilize powerful Keyword abilities like Stealth to slip unseen through your opponent's forces, Push to force targets across the Battleground, and Override to disrupt their Strategies.
  • Multi-platform support, built on Unity, allows players to battle each other across the globe, at home or on the go. 
  • Hundreds of unique cards allow for limitless combinations to build your army and find new strategies. 
  • Online modes include Unranked, Ranked, Tournament and much more, all using an ELO-based ranking system.
  • Deep commitment to ongoing content updates and balance adjustments, always ensuring the highest quality gameplay experience. 
  • Explore a continually growing universe filled with lore and adventure which directly links to how the in-game universe evolves and affects players.
Advent Saga is an epic sci-fi story taking place in a vast, richly detailed universe. After the disastrous events of Crimson Prime dissolved the fragile peace between the UGC and the Sotarian Collective, the stage was set for a galaxy-spanning tale of tragedy, betrayal, conquest, and war.

When you play Advent Saga, you’re not just playing cards. You’re joining people like Captain Ely and the crew of the LIZ Freighter as they uncover clues about the massacre on Crimson Prime. You’re assuming the role of the lost Advent, Xi, as he returns from years lost in space. You’re taking command of the Sotarian Collective as Prax'or in his quest for justice and revenge.

The universe of Advent Saga is filled with danger and intrigue, playing out across hundreds of worlds. From the erudite Narteph to the enigmatic Arcetians and the enterprising Orynn, colorful characters and alien races will inhabit every corner of your Advent Saga experience. Your journey through the galaxy unfolds not just through your actions on the battlefield, but also in the form of the digital Advent Saga comic book, which will reveal not only the fates of the Advents, but also the tragic events leading up to the beginning of the war.   

This is your chance to help us shape the future of Advent Saga. To have a say in where our ship flies on this thrilling adventure, join the crew and fly with us!

We are a group of independent artists, writers, and designers collaborating to bring you an original and challenging card game designed for everyone from CCG veterans to new players just looking to get into the genre, or maybe just science fictions fans looking for a great new story to immerse themselves in. 

Advent Saga has been our dream and life for the past year and a half. Everything from the game mechanics to the artwork and story-lines . Working outside of our day jobs, our team has spent countless hours working to create an incredible digital card game for everyone to enjoy. Development for the game so far has been funded from our own savings in an effort to express our commitment to reach our goal. Every donation goes directly to paying our artists, commissioning new work, supporting Advent Saga's online infrastructure, and updating the game.   

With your support, you will make Advent Saga a reality and join us in building an adventurous experience for competitive and casual gamers.

With your support, we can devote the time needed to completing Advent Saga and continue to bring you more amazing content.

With your support, we can create a cross-platform tactical experience for everyone to enjoy and bring the immerse story-line of Advent Saga to life.

Risks and challenges

The greatest risk facing Advent Saga is that without funding from Kickstarter, we simply will not be able to launch the game. While nothing is going to stop us from an eventual launch, not meeting our Kickstarter goal will set the game back indefinitely. We need the funding to be able to provide all of our design team with proper compensation for their hard work, as well as continue to pay any other independent artists we commission in the future. Continuing to perfect the game design and ensure a stable, enjoyable game and the highest quality design all hinges on us being able to meet our goal. We just can't do it without you.

Our greatest challenge is making a game that our entire community can enjoy as challenging and fun without being too hard to get into for new players or wracked with exploitable card combos. We strive to create a product playable at any skill level where veterans of the CCG genre can find an original and exciting game to test their skills and newcomers can easily learn and grow while still having fun. Above all we want to make certain that we never sacrifice quality or take a shortcut where it will negatively impact the players. Advent Saga is its community, and that is both our greatest challenge and our greatest strength.
