Dear friends and fans of Elemental Clash!
Much has happened since my lasst Newsflash back in January this year and I will share with you the major news items in the following, beginning with the most awesome one:
Elemental Clash: Legendary Legacy released and available on TGC now!
I am immensely please to be able to announce that the first full, 100+ different cards expansion to the Master Set – Elemental Clash: Legendary Legacy…
…is finally complete, released and as of now available on The Game Crafter – if you want a copy, you can get it HERE.
There is also a RAFFLE in which you can win one out of three highly unique, exclusive and limited Release Promo Card Packs!! You can enter until May 31st 2014 and only if you are in the United States of America – sorry all others, I don’t want to discriminate anyone but 40 USD international shipping is something I cannot at all afford…
To find out more about EC: Legendary Legacy and how to participate in the raffle as well as for some awesome card previews from the expansion I would like to refer you to this article on my games blog.
News on the Elemental Clash Mobile App:
Well first of all my sincere apologies to all iOS users who are looking forward to the EC App on their device and have been kept waiting for far too long. See, the thing is my coders promised the iOS version a month after the Android release, but they seem to have run into some issues and are not really communicative when it comes to the implementation of the EC App for iOS. The last I heard was that they were working on it and that it can only be a matter of weeks until the iOS launch. I heard that before many times, but sadly, valued iOS users, I cannot do anything to speed things up.
On the bright side, my team is constantly improving the game, fixing bugs etc and the campaign mode will soon be implemented and available in an update shortly. So I would say the extraordinarily long waiting time for the iOS App will be worth it in the end as you will get a more stable game with more options like the single player campaign mode implemented.
I am furthermore planning on releasing new cards in the App every now and then – not the whole Legendary Legacy Expansion at once (the task of implementing that would take half a year I guess) but maybe in batches of 10 monthly or every other month. That way your digital cards collection will grow and expand slowly but steadily! I am still negotiating with my coders on that though.
Once again, I am very sorry for the delay of the iOS version of the EC App but again, I cannot do a thing about it so we all will have to wait. Humbly asking for your understanding…
What the Future will bring for EC:
Well dear friends, I have great plans for the future of Elemental Clash, and my dreams may or may not come true depending on how my financial situation will develop in the nearer future (the outlook is quite bright though) as the (art) money is the only limiting factor for me and Elemental Clash, having dozens of expansions and mini-expansions all planned through and at the ready.
So now that a full 100+ different cards expansion is released, I will be changing my “business plan” a bit and start publishing EC in a different format, which has only benefits to you, valued EC player and potential customer, and to me, the designer and guy who has to pay for the artwork!
The new formats in which I will be releasing new cards in the future will be so called “Demi-Expansion” of approx. 90 cards total and Tribal-themed “Mini-Expansions” of approx. 36 cards in total. Releasing smaller sets will reduce the cost for me, decrease the waiting time and the price point for you, as I would be able to skip the expensive game box with foam insert and opt for a considerably cheaper tuck box. All that matters is kickass cards, so who cares about fancy boxes, right?
At this point I am determined to realize 5 of the “Demi-Expansions” mentioned above over the course of the next 2 – 3 years as well as several Tribal Packs.
The first Demi-Expansion will be all about everyone’s favorite fantasy creature type. You will be easily able to guess which by looking at the below logo draft (yes this one is actually unfinished as of yet):
The other four 90-cards Demi-Expansions will be focussed on one of the 4 Elements each. For more information about the Demi-Expansions, please read this article here.
To ease the waiting time and to give you all a little teaser and preview of what the future will bring for the game, I will be releaseing the “Future Sight Preview Pack” soon, which will contain 3 different, representative cards from every one of the 5 planned Demi-Expansions, giving you some awesome cards like this one…
…right away and granting you an exclusive glimpse into the future of the game!
The first “Tribal Pack” (Tribal-themed Mini-Expansion) will introduce a brand-new Creature type to Elemental Clash: Orcs! Here’s what the box will look like:
For more information about the Tribal Pack – Orcs and for some awesome Orc art and card previews please read my blog post here.
So you see, there is a lot of EC-awesomeness headed your way and I hope my other works and projects will earn me enough money to be able to realize all what I so boldly announced just a few moments ago!
Welcoming 4 New Artists to the Elemental Clash Art Team:
Fresh blood is needed and bringing new artist are always an exciting and interesting thing. So I searched for and found four talented artists from all around the globe who are willing and able to produce top-notch artworks at rates that are affordable even for my humble self. Let me tell me their names and from where they are accompanied by an art preview each done by one of my new artists:
Welcome, Rubén, Rastislav, Phil and Erick to the Elemental Clash art team, or shall I say “family”?
Well everyone, that is my May 2014 Newsflash for you! If you want to stay up-to-date on Elemental Clash, I recommend you like it on facebook and/or you subscribe to my games blog where I post regularly about EC, as well as about other games, my own and others!
With this I say farewell for now and wish you all
