Visions of Zosimos
« on: Sep 25, 11, 05:01:34 AM »



Visions of Zosimos is a unique blend of the strategy, role-playing and collectible card game genres, allowing players across the board to experience a new form of cooperative and competitive play.  Drawing inspiration from real-world ancient texts, players take on the role of a student of Alchemy, an ancient precursor to Chemistry with an emphasis on mysticism and mythology, as well as the transmutation and binding of elemental and spiritual forces.

As students, you'll gain rank and reward by creating a homunculus, an artificial being formed by the elements, fueled by the teachings of your chosen Alchemy Master, and inhabited by the spirits of real-world heroes, villains, myths, legends, kings, warlords and tyrants.  Your homunculus, under your direct control, acts as your avatar as you vie for control over the last unclaimed frontier - the afterlife.  Utilizing a combination of spells, ambushes and minions, you outfight and outwit your enemies while exploring alternate planes of reality shaped and molded by the stories and beliefs of our ancestors.

Here's some glimpses at our card artwork!  This is but a very small handful of the cards we currently have!

Also, we have just recently re-launched our website!  You can find that here.

Very well done... Looks if I am not mistaken everything is built on a Hex-Grid like battletech but with elements of Magic the gathering instead of Bipedal Mechanized Armors... A good cross... you may very well blow magic the gathering tactics out of the water with this one... though you are up against a giant brand name... luckily sony tends to ruin everything they touch and sense they touched tactics... go for it!

I just wanted to pop in and give some updates!

We are still pounding away, mainly at this point adding a lot of polishing elements to the game and working out some kinks as we progress.  A lot has been going on and we are excited to show more soon!

We are nearly finished with our first Story Trailer for the game, which is scheduled to be revealed at GDC this year!  We look forward to the feedback we garner from that.  In the meantime, here are some teaser images of the trailer and what you can expect to see as well as some new card images.  We will update again soon!

Updated shots of our PvP Arena (WIP).  We have been making some major GUI improvements, which I hope to show soon!  We are nearing the very final days of our story trailer, and I will tell you it is AWESOME!  I can't wait to debut it for all to see!
