“Abalon is the culmination of seven years development and an even longer history dating back to 2006 when we pioneered the card tactics genre. This a work of passion and determination to create the best possible experience we could for fans of roguelike and tabletop games, and I anticipate players are going to have a lot of fun using cards, dice, and tactics to unleash their creativity and devise the most amazing strategies.” – Ross Przybylski, Founder and Game Developer, D20Studios

Abalon is a turn-based tactics game with card strategy wrapped in a roguelike adventure focused on exploration, survival and defeating powerful bosses. Players describe it as a successful combination of Magic: The Gathering, D&D and Final Fantasy Tactics – a winning proposition that manages to deliver its own unique experience which is both familiar and unlike anything they’ve ever played!

Abalon key features:

  • Grid-Based Movement and Spell Cards elegantly combine in an experience that’s like playing chess with magic. Summon creatures onto the battlefield and command them to move and attack. Devastate foes and terrain alike with fireballs and meteor showers. Manipulate gravity, time and space to gain positional advantage and unleash gratifying combos.
  • 20 Characters to Choose From include squirrel hurling druids, time traveling steampunk rats, and skeleton summoning liche kings. Each Summoner commands two of five schools of magic, allowing numerous possibilities to customize your strategy with creative and never-before-seen interactions (like overrunning your foes with mutant squirrel armies, guardian angels falling from the skies to protect you, and a perfect engine of endless miracle casting). Plus over 200 additional characters you can recruit, summon and command.
  • Ever-Changing Open World Exploration invites you to discover enticing encounters where a roll of the D20 can help you recruit new party members, brew potions, and even celebrate a goblin birthday party! Players have the freedom to retreat, undo actions, replay battles and more to experience the wonders of Abalon at your own and take on the most difficult challenges when you are ready.
  • Deep Strategic Deck Building allows you to fully customize your deck any time you rest at a campsite. Choose two guardians to support your hero and up to 20 cards consisting of spells, additional units, and equipment from over 400 cards. Plus, find additional artifacts to further upgrade and synergize your heroic team.
  • Highly Accessible and Playful Art Style where characters literally look up at you to be commanded. Gracefully issue orders with simple point and click controls and full gamepad support.
