    Visions of Zosimos (VoZ) is an online collectible card game that seamlessly integrates deep tactical turn-based combat in a hex based layout, while harnessing the social aspects of the massively multiplayer online (MMO) genre. VoZ is a PC game for windows based machines, built on the Hero Engine that will utilize a dedicated player client. A single game session will occur in a 3D board environment and allow each player to engage in direct combat with his or her avatar on the board, as well as play various cards from his or her deck enacting a multitude of effects on gameplay. A player achieves victory by defeating all opposing players' avatar(s), and additional game modes are in development which are based on other achievements. We place strategy, balance, and fun at the forefront of our essential tenets of gameplay and strive every day to make this a reality within VoZ.

VoZ is a historical fiction game and draws inspiration from Alchemy and Mysticism, bringing the ancient precursor to chemistry and ancient texts from our world together in a synergy of the mystical and mundane. A player will learn to transmute the elements and spiritual forces to fight battles in the Afterlife where the digital terrain becomes more and more alive with the placement of every card.

When a player signs up for the game and logs in, they become a student of the Visions of Zosimos, written by Zosimos the Moravian, a mystic from the 16th century who recorded his visions and alchemical insights in a series of manuscripts. Lost to time, surviving copies were brought to light by Bertold Slate, a professor focused on 16th century mysticism, gnosticism, and hermetic alchemy. As the foremost authority on the works of Zosimos he soon began to attract the attention of other like minded scholars and modern mystics. Things changed when he shared the Visions with a friend who was a mathematician and Computer Science professor. Together they began to create programs that could express the complex formulae of the arcane texts in the language of computers; this game is the interface, allowing novices to be inducted into an eternal struggle for the very nature of existence. Entering the virtual academy, player avatars can explore the materials available for study and create homunculi that will represent them in battles. The player becomes empowered with the addition of cards which are earned through exploration, victory, or purchase. These tools for mastering the maps and adversaries in the great struggle are manifestations of power generated by the arcane mathematical coding of the Visions Program. They allow the initiated to travel the path towards triumph, desolation, or even immortality.

Risks and challenges

Many crowdfunding projects are in early development stages or only consist of concepts and ideas. VoZ has been in development for a number of years in which many of our team members have been using working in their spare time and has been been in various Alpha and Beta states for over a year now. We have a substantial sized team working towards our final stretch of development and we will be releasing our public version 1.0 in August of 2015 at GenCon in Indianapolis, Indiana. The money you help us raise will ensure that we not only are able adhere to our release roadmap, but also that we are able to have the most successful launch possible to ensure that the VoZ is around for years to come.
