With The Ember Conflict, we’ve designed everything from the ground-up for tablets. Featuring:

⁃ Real-time battles against live opponents
⁃ Fast tactical decision-making
⁃ Deep army customization (inspired by Warhammer)
⁃ Line-drawing controls (shoutout to Autumn Dynasty for paving the way)
⁃ Short, 2-minute matches for the gamer w/ a life
⁃ 1v1 and 2v2 auto-matching
⁃ Pugs, in full 3D (other stuff is 3D too)
⁃ Original game universe (see art on website)

The game is a streamlined multiplayer take on the Real-Time Tactics genre, in the tradition of games like Total War and Myth.

2 questions;
Can you upload a short video showing the gameplay flow, as that's crucial for a game like this imo?
You mention it being competitive, does that mean in the sense of a MOBA?

Your graphics are really cool!

1) Video will be out in the coming months

2) If you consider Total War: Arena to be a MOBA, then we are a MOBA too. It is online-only and PvP-only!!

Hey guys,

It's been a while since we posted anything here, and I'd like to apologize for this.
We're very excited to announce that we've submitted our game to Apple, and it will hit the Canadian App Store soon.

If you're not in Canada, or don't own a Canadian App Store account, worry not!
We have a few slots available for a semi-open Alpha, and we'd be thrilled to have the opportunity to have a few battles against you.
You can register here, and you'll receive a nice and shiny email with the installation procedure once it's ready.

In the meantime, we're here to answer all the questions you might have.
I'll be checking this thread regularly so ask away. If you have specific questions or would like to hang out with us a little bit more, don't hesitate to join us on our Official Forums too. These days we might even be online at all sorts of hours; our pugs are getting pretty riled up with all this FIFA World Cup starting soon.
