A wild new feature appears! Deck-building is back and better than ever. Check it out for yourself by:
1) joining our Discord server (discord.crystalcompanies.me)
2) typing !key in chat
3) redeeming the Steam key you receive and downloading CrysCo.
Now, for those who prefer it, read on below about our progress over the last month and a half.
Here is a video that will do a better job than I can of describing what has been added to the game:
Worth noting about the current iteration of the deck-building capabilities:
- Each player has been temporarily given the full library of available cards.
- You can now create fully customized decks.
- Searching and filtering a collection can be done via the filter buttons or search field at the bottom of the deck editing view.
To see a full list of recent card updates, head over to our Dev Blog.
In summary, a lot of interesting updates have been made to Intellect (orange) and Wealth (yellow) so maybe that’s where you should start when building your first deck?
After receiving some amazing new art (featured in the new build of the game!) we have already begun commissioning art of another kind: new models! This should include not only a new captain character but also updates to the environment assets. Expect to see more on this front over the next month or so. Some models already in the pipeline (see previous monthly updates) should reach completion relatively soon as well!
On the Horizon
This month ended the first big sprint of the year for the Boreal Games Team. We successfully re-implemented the deckbuilding screen. But we are already hard at work on the next one! No spoilers yet, but a hint is in order: check the new nav and you can begin to guess what features are coming next. This series of sprints is meant to culminate in a (successful?) Kickstarter, so as you follow along, we’d love to hear ways we can continue to improve the game and help build our community’s interest!
P.S. one more time: if you want to play CrysCo, join the Discord 🙂
