A card game is usually just a card game. You draw cards, play them, and hope to beat your opponent senseless. For the most part you’re controlling the flow of battle as a faceless overlord. With the upcoming Allians, though, you’re pretty much in the trenches. Bear with me. According to their website you become a card based on your Steam account and achievements unlocked. How this translates into game mechanics I’m not entirely sure but it’s certainly a unique feature that makes me want to know more.


Unsurprisingly most heavily influenced by adventure games.

Come March 29th we should be treated to not only more information but a Kickstarter campaign to earn funding as well. I’ll need to know more about how Allians plans on implementing said feature as well as the flow of the game itself before I take the plunge but suffice it to say that I’m hooked already. Certainly enough to talk about it when it goes live. That said, you can make your own card using the creator provided to see how it works. Mine can be seen above based off my own Steam profile.
