[Beta] Earthcore: Shattered Elements – CCG with revolutionary Card Crafting

Earthcore: Shattered Elements is a completely new kind of a collectible card game in development by our dev team at Tequila Games. It will be released in Q1 2015 for iPad and iPhone.

We just opened the registration for the beta of the game! Read on for more details or go straight to www.earthcoregame.com/beta


We want to give an exclusive TestFlight access to a group of 100 players. You will get a chance to check the game in advance and participate in the development process months before it's released. All you have to do is sign up at: www.earthcoregame.com/beta

Ideally, we’re looking for people who have experience of playing any kind of collectible card game (Hearthstone, Magic The Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh, etc.) but it’s enough for us if you just love games and want to have a go.

To participate in the beta you also need to have an iPad 3, iPad Mini with Retina or newer tablet. iPad 2 and all iPhone's above 4S will be supported in the final game but not at the moment, sorry.

We also decided to allocate 10 extra guaranteed beta slots for players from the TA Forum… Just write down "TA Forum" in the form instead of your favourite CCG game title and reserve your spot in the beta today!


And what is Earthcore: Shattered Elements?

Earthcore aims to bring a completely new gameplay experience to the digital collectible card games by introducing several new and unique features including Card Crafting.

Card Crafting will give players the ability to fuse card abilities together to create brand new, powerful cards that suit their tactical goals and in-game strategy. With over 500,000 possible card combinations, Earthcore will deliver highly competitive duels where the player’s skill and creative thinking are as important as the cards they have in their hand.


Earthcore: Shattered Element’s gameplay also innovates the genre through its skill-based Elemental battle system in which players fight duels whilst commanding the armies of the three Elements - Fire, Water and Earth. This is coupled with the Risk mechanic, which adds a gambling element by assigning each card a risk value. The more powerful a card is, the higher its risk value and the more points it will remove from its owners life total if it is defeated.


Earthcore: Shattered Elements will focus on delivering players a richly detailed, story-driven, single player campaign as well as multiplayer with ranked player vs player duels, leagues and championships.

After launch, we plan to add regular updates including new story chapters for the single-player campaign as well as releasing new cards and skills on a regular basis.

I just signed up for the beta!

Been looking forward to this game as I love CCGs. Magic The Gathering and Hearthstone being my favorite. Never really got into Yu-Gi-Oh or Pokemon. I know of some other CCGs out there, but haven't given them a shot yet. MTG and Hearthstone seem to be the ones to beat.

I'd gladly take an invite and give this a shot. I love the idea of being able to craft cards. I always kind of thought that could fit in well with a CCG. I'm very thankful you're including a single player campaign. I mean, I know PVP is sort of the ideal thing, but as a person with social anxiety, I sometimes get a bit nervous when it comes to playing against/with people I don't know. I have to build up some courage (and skills) with a single player campaign before I dive into PVP.

Good luck with this!

Sure what the heck. I never received the email to my hotmail, so I signed up again with my gmail.

FYI I am a HEX TCG backer, have experience with Magic and other card games as well.

Yes, you should, although I would have to check the list to be 100% sure. PM me your email address if you want.

I signed up yesterday I think it was. Although the confirmation email went to my junk box so hopefully if I get in I will spot the actual email.
