ARCANIUM: Rise of Akhan
ARCANIUM: Rise of Akhan” is an ambitious and unique title. A Story-driven, single-player Strategy Card game of epic proportions, that merges the “Roguelike” & “Deckbuilding” genres in many new ways. Arcanium is a tale of fellowship and bravery and is set in a fantasy world of anthropomorphic animals in which good, evil, magic and technology collide.
Form a party of three Heroes and embark on a dangerous journey in order to defeat Akhan the Calamity, and save the World of Arzu from destruction. But beware, should one of your party members succumb to corruption, your quest has come to its end!
Here at SUPERCOMBO games, we are inspired by some of our favorite games like the “Lord of the Rings” LCG (Fantasy Flight), Dungeons and Dragons (Wizards of the Coast), Slay the Spire (Megacrit), Faster than Light (Subset Games), Hearthstone (Blizzard Ent.), and classic RPG games like Diablo (Blizzard Ent.) and Baldur’s Gate (Bioware). We are also board games fanatics and relish in a good “Choose your own adventure” book. We wanted ARCANIUM to borrow some elements from all these amazing titles, genres and mediums. The result is a unique and genre-defining game that we hope will inspire you in return and scratch the nostalgia itch you may have for some of the games that we all played growing up.
The game features unique mechanics that set it apart from the other existing titles in the Genre:
Explore a vast continent broken down into several Provinces each with a unique feel and a different set of challenges. Each province represents one “Chapter” of our story and can be replayed any number of times with various difficulty levels.
This is our fancy terminology to say that you are in total control of your own Journey! Roam freely inside full-3D procedural maps, but keep an eye on the corruption meter… The longer you stay in a Province, the harder the enemies get!
Extra chance to ambush the enemy at Night, extra chance to encounter “Elusives” during the Day, the mechanic offers a deep and exhilarating layer of immersion that has a direct impact on every decision you make.
Choices you make have a lasting impact on the rest of your Run. Environmental hazards, corrupted tiles, handicaps, and dangerous curses await! The Provinces you visit evolve and crumble before your eyes, as you make your way to Akhan’s Lair.
