New Beta Build, Card Guide, Gameplay Videos, and Art Interview

FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

We have just released a new beta build, with the following changes:

  • The skirmish screen has been streamlined, giving more useful options when starting a game and removing less useful options. Your starting position is now based on your selected colour unless the Random start position option is checked. Players can vie for the same position, and the actual positions will be assigned randomly.
  • The end of game screen has been improved, showing the game statistics once the game session has ended.
  • We have added a system of tooltips which let you gain quick tips on certain interface elements, such as the army order buttons. Simply click and hold (tap and hold on iOS) to see information on the specific button.
  • Terrain modifiers have been streamlined to a single defensive percentile modifier.
  • You can now queue up movement across several turns by dragging your hero around the map. As you do so, the number of turns necessary to reach the desired destination will be shown. Once you have committed your hero to the path, you can always cancel his orders and give him new ones.
  • A reject notice is now given in the chat window when a player rejects your game invitation.
  • When winning by Victory Points, you are required to hold your VPs for 3 turns now.
  • Miscellaneous improvements and bug fixes.

You can download them below with complete instructions here:

By the way, if you’re having trouble choosing a hero or faction, here’s a quick card guide. We’re still working on implementing this in-game, but hope this screenshot helps for now.

More people have also been checking out the game and posting their gameplay videos:

Thank you as well to all the new press we’ve been getting, including this interview with our artists Edwin, Jaq, and Jun on Xmashed Gear. Check it out to see some concept art and WIPs of our heroes!

Please keep your comments and suggestions coming, and hope you’ll continue to share our project to your friends! We have currently reached over $4000, but still a long way until we complete our goal. And again, please do vote for us on Greenlight.


Press Release: Legends of Callasia on Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight

[PRESS RELEASE]

Legends of Callasia is back on Kickstarter and goes to Steam Greenlight!

Join the BETA of this cross-platform world conquest multiplayer title inspired by board games and epic strategy video games

December 14, 2015 – Southeast Asian virtual game studio Boomzap Entertainment launches its Kickstarter campaign for Legends of Callasia, a cross-platform fantasy world conquest game with board game-style mechanics and no hotseat waiting. Beta access is open to all as part of the Kickstarter, and a Greenlight campaign on Steam is also ongoing.

Legends of Callasia (formerly known as Legends of Fire & Steel) is a simultaneous turn-based single and multiplayer fantasy world conquest strategy game with no hotseat waiting. Choose from a wide range of heroes from three factions – The Hundred Kingdoms, The Faeborne, and The Revenant – and conquer lands through single player campaigns, or battle against friends through online multiplayer in board game-style maps. Use bonus cards against your enemies or boost your armies and rule the world!

Features:

  • Classic fantasy world conquest strategy game with simple, intuitive controls
  • Endless strategies through wide range of heroes, units, maps, and more
  • Auto-resolve battle mode with two attack phases: missile and melee
  • Single player campaigns: follow the war of the factions across the lands
  • Turn-based multiplayer game with simultaneous plan and resolution cycle: ranked and casual play, friend finder, rankings, leaderboards, and no hotseat waiting
  • Pay once and play: no free to play, no ads, no pay to win

The game is designed to be playable on PC, Mac, iPad, and Android tablets. Boomzap co-founder and Creative Director Chris Natsuume says, “Our hope is to make a mid-core casual game that captures some of the fun of more epic strategy games like Civilization, Crusader Kings, or Heroes of Might and Magic, but in a much smaller, more digestible, 1 hour play session.”

Known for casual games, Boomzap is now making its entry to the strategy games market and is hoping to build a multiplayer community on Steam. Funding through Kickstarter would also help in completing development of the game, set to release in early 2016.

Make Legends of Callasia a reality by backing their project on Kickstarter and rating the game on Steam Greenlight. The team is asking for support in spreading the news in order to reach their funding goal of $25,000USD. Pledges start at $1USD, and rewards such as early release copies, digital artbooks, and customized in-game content are available to the backers.

For more details about the game, visit their website and like their official Facebook page.


Open Beta, Kickstarter, and Greenlight now LIVE!

Legends of Callasia is now live on Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight!

BETA access to the game is open to all as part of the Kickstarter. We hope you can support us! It would help us a lot if you can pledge and vote, and share the links to your friends in order to get the word out to more people (which means more players to play multiplayer with) and make this game a reality.

Here are the Kickstarter rewards available to our backers:

Thank you very much!


New game name: Legends of Callasia

Yes, that’s right. We’ve renamed Legends of Fire & Steel to Legends of Callasia! Why’s that? The old title was longer, a bit generic, and most of the time confused people (especially fans of a series with Ice and Fire in the title – admit it, you’re one of them!)

The game has always been set in the world of Callasia, and we thought changing the title would be able to communicate this better. Legends of Callasia is also shorter and more unique. And with the new name comes a new logo!

We’re also working on a new icon and we need your help – which icon do you like best?
