Default Etherlords (by Nival)

Meet the Etherlords — a stunning 3D iOS title that pushes Unity to its absolute limits, arriving on Thursday, September 4!


What is Etherlords?
Etherlords is a 3D strategy game played in an isometric perspective. The game has a unique “world-building” gameplay mechanic inspired by Carcassonne: Players spend their resources to build tiles, which become living earth (terrain). The new land generates Ether and gives birth to new Creatures that can be collected and deployed into battle. While Etherlords is free-to-play, there is no stamina mechanic. Players can stay in the game (and fight!) until the batteries on their iOS devices run out

The game also includes a hefty multiplayer component with asynchronous PvP powered by user-generated worlds and creatures (which can be “fused” together with unpredictable results!). There are more than 180 creatures in total—including Wolves, Dragons, Witchdoctors, Scorpion Kings, and even a mighty Colossus!

KEY FEATURES:
• Engage in breathtaking battles!
• Collect and fuse stunningly detailed creatures and fight for your world — or conquer others!
• Beat your opponent in just 60 seconds — faster than making a cup of coffee
• No need for a constant connection to play; no more interruptions; enjoy PvE and PvP even when you are offline!
• Create entire worlds and feed them to your creatures!
• No "stamina": who needs that when you can keep on playing as long you want?
• Use unique combinations for each battle; sharpen your skills and become the mightiest Etherlord!

This thread should have been created in the "upcoming games section" since it is not out yet. I've marked it for a mod to move it.

HOLY SHIP! Just shouted "NO WAY!!" and scared my family by doing so, because I immediately thought about one of my favourite games on PC:

Now that I saw that NIVAL is indeed the developer, I am just hoping for the very very best!

Damn. So excited now!

I prefer keeping expectations in check. So many times a port/remake just totally failed coz of the freemium aspects... Most especially in RPGs.

Ya, your right, bro. Need to calm and expectations not too high.
But the description lets me hope.

It could be great but hopes are low as games that use a lot of these mechanics are such a grind and a bore and aiming to be the best is the only fun. Grinding to fuse mobs sucks.

But hopefully I'm wrong and it's actually fun.
