Incarnate is a fully 3D tactical strategy fused with a collectible card game; like Final Fantasy Tactics meets Magic the Gathering.

As someone with a love for card games, it’s hard to ignore the many titles coming forth on Kickstarter. Incarnate is one of the latest and, despite entering a crowded genre, does a variety of things to differentiate itself. Players begin with a deck which pulls from one of 123 currently available cards. The battlefield is comprised like a board game but offers tactical aspects. For example, a certain title on the board may be raised much higher than the others. Getting into that position confers that you’ll be able to do more damage to lower enemies. Interestingly, unlike most tactical games with positional advantage, you can also manipulate the field for your benefit (via special land cards).

Incarnate is a fully 3D tactical strategy fused with a collectible card game; like Final Fantasy Tactics meets Magic the Gathering.Another aspect of Incarnate that may lure some and alternately worry others is that it’s 100% free-to-play. Each week a different collection of four characters will be free for anyone to use. If you play MOBA League of Legends this rotating character concept may be familiar to you. In any case, it sounds like a simple solution to allow gamers to try out different characters without having to put money down first. All cards can also be collected through rigorous play. Of course, if you want you can spend money to buy a card or two for fleshing out the perfect deck.

Incarnate offers both PvE and PvP modes. In PvE, you team up with a friend or two in a co-op expedition against enemies. PvP is a 2 versus 2 mode and the PvP ladder will be cross-platform. No matter what gaming device you have you’ll likely be able to play Incarnate as it is poised for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Wii U if it attains the $48,000 Kickstarter goal.

Glad to see the BL visual novel Sentimental Trickster was funded. How about those #Kickstarter stretch goals? https://t.co/AEU8LaeD6M - 1 year ago
