SolForge Digital TCG from the creators of Magic and Ascension

Hi all - I was directed to this forum by a fellow iOS gaming enthusiast who suggested you all might be interested in a new project we're working on.

SolForge is a free-to-play digital TCG for iOS and PC (and, hopefully, Android and other platforms as well) made by Gary Games, the designers of the Ascension board game and iOS app, in partnership with Richard Garfield, the original designer of Magic the Gathering.

Check out our Kickstarter page here. Anyone who contributes at least $5 to our Kickstarter receives access to the Beta when it goes live, along with a bunch of other cool rewards at every backer level.

Our forums are here:

www.solforgegame.com

And here's a sneak preview of our current prototype we're using to film gameplay footage today!



Here's some screenshots from our in-progress version:

I'd be happy to answer any questions you all might have, either here or in our forums, so don't hold back. Also, if anyone can help me figure out how to embed our video properly, I'd appreciate that

Very interested.
Will this be for iPhone as well? You say ios, but show an iPad. I have both but so often want a game badly to come to iPhone also.

I've been looking forward to this since it first showed up on Facebook. I'll try to find some of the promo art they've posted, which looks pretty great. I'm really excited to see what ideas Gary Games and Richard Garfield have for exploiting the freedom of the digital medium (a-la Assassin's Creed Recollection). I know I'm pledging at least $25 towards this, and seriously thinking about bumping it higher.

We're developing the game for both iPhone and iPad. Our initial prototype build is using the iPad because it's much better for giving demos, which we plan to have available at both GenCon and PAX in the upcoming month.

Loving everything I'm seeing on the Kickstarter page. Upgradable cards, beautiful graphics, in-depth single player campaign where the decisions you make will impact the story as it unfolds.

This will be an insta-buy no doubt as I'm a fan of everything Gary Games touches for iOS. I guys my only question is, will the multiplayer be asynchronous? If so, will there be a chat feature (please say yes to both)?

We'll be supporting asynchronous play similar to how we do Ascension - you can play games with specific time limits so you can finish a game in one sitting or over the course of a week if you want. We do plan on having player chat as well.
