Wroclaw, 2014-02-17 - Tequila Games, the studio behind such brands as Fantasy Kingdom Defense and BattleFriends, has announced its latest project. Earthcore: Shattered Elements is an innovative Digital Card Game for PC, Mac, iOS and Android. The project will be seeking additional funding through a Kickstarter campaign which is expected to launch later this February.

A teaser trailer has been released and can be enjoyed at Earthcore: Shattered Elements is a dynamic Action Card Game that combines card collecting with fast-paced combat and true tactical depth. The game will feature both a dramatic story-based Single Player campaign and a robust online Player Versus Player mode. With over 200 hand-painted cards at launch and groundbreaking gameplay mechanics, Earthcore aims to bring some fresh air to the TCG genre.

The gameplay itself is quite revolutionary,” assures Radek Smektala, Creative Producer of Earthcore: Shattered Elements. “ Since it’s based on a very simple idea of three battling elements, the matches are quick and easy to follow. At the same time, individual card skills add immense strategic depth to the game.”

We call Earthcore an ACTION TCG because it delivers what it promises: it brings real excitement into the gameplay,” adds Lukasz Deszczulka, CEO of Tequila Games. “What’s unique is that you can spend as little as five minutes per session and still enjoy a full online multiplayer experience.”

Earthcore: Shattered Elements is expected to launch Q4 2014, provided the funding goal is met. More information regarding the game, including gameplay video, will be revealed at launch of the Kickstarter campaign.
