Description
Release date: Open Alpha current available
The Game
Combining the best aspects of games like Magic the Gathering and Warhammer Fantasy, we have crafted a hex based strategy CCG that provides a high level of strategic depth and complexity for those who wish it, while retaining a simple, intuitive interface. VoZ is the first ever lore based Historical Fiction/Fantasy MMOCCG/Strategy game.

Features
  • Free to Play!
  • Turn-based tactical tabletop war game/CCG played on a hexagon game board.
  • In-game Deck Builder that allows you to create any combination of cards to build your personalized ultimate deck to fit your unique play style.
  • Fully integrated in-game store will allow you to securely use in-game currency earned through gameplay, as well as real-world money to purchase items in-game.
  • Can be played with up to 6 people simultaneously.
  • PvP game mode, with additional modes (including PvE) in development.
  • Unprecedented strategic options, not seen before within a video game.
  • Multiple maps available with distinct stories, lore, and environments.
  • Social aspects of a MMO.
  • Microtransaction based monetization system: Card packs, cosmetic items and homunculi.
  • Unique lore that ties into real world mythos, legends, and history.

Enemies
While playing the game you may engage with a variety of enemies, each with their own unique AI, abilities, statistics, lore and/or loot drops.
Some of these enemies include:
  • Bog Parasite
  • Damned Soul
  • Bog Slave
  • Void Spider
  • Grendel
  • Grigori Outcast
  • And many MANY more!!!

Player(s)
You are a student of alchemy and mysticism who uses a Homunculus to fight for you in the Afterlife. The Homunculus is created through combining Materia Cards that represent the element it is a Construct of, the Memory of an alchemist, and the Essence of a great warrior. These three components allow you to take control of your deck and play cards like minions, spells, and ambushes. Each Construct represents a classical element and will allow you to control a deck of the same element.. We will be releasing new card and homunculi sets at regular intervals throughout the life of the game.

Currently both Dark Fire and Light Earth exist in the game. Our next release sets will be the element-less Fulcrum and Void, which will be a support set designed to work in unison with any Element.

Due to the MMO aspect of the game, we currently have a world chat system, but we will also be introducing a social lobby down the road, complete with customizable guilds, player housing, etc… In this space players will control their student as they freely move around a 3d world to interact with other players.

Single player:
Our single player and co-op mode(s) that are present in the current build of the game allow a players to square off against the AI driven enemies that populate the realm they are in. It can be played solo, or co-op with others. The objective is simply to clear the board. Given that we are in late Alpha, moving into Beta, we do not have the full set of single player features we want in the game, but we will introduce and implement them as we proceed through development.

Currently in-engine:
  • Single player PvE
  • Deck Builder
  • Homunculus Lab

Future additions:
  • Questing system
  • Free roam encounter modes
  • Alchemical inspired card crafting system
  • Player housing
  • Cosmetic Customization (avatar skins, dice skins, card sleeves)

Multiplayer:
This is the bread and butter of VoZ, and the CCG genre as a whole. We will support a full set of multiplayer features upon our gold release.

Currently in-engine:
  • Up to 3v3 PvP (Deathmatch)
  • World Chat and Game Chat

Future additions:
  • Additional game modes including: Raid, Conquest, and others
  • Guilds
  • Guild housing
  • Card Trading

The Setting
VoZ is a historical fiction game and draws inspiration from Hemetic Alchemy and Gnostic Mysticism, bringing the ancient precursor to chemistry and archaic texts from our world together in a synergy of the magical and mundane. A player will learn to transmute the elements and spiritual forces to fight battles in the Afterlife, where the digital terrain becomes more and more alive with the placement of every card.

When a player signs up for the game and logs in, they become a student of the Visions of Zosimos, written by Zosimos the Moravian, a mystic from the 16th century who recorded his visions and alchemical insights in a series of manuscripts. Entering the virtual academy, player avatars can explore the materials available for study and create homunculi that will represent them in battles. The player becomes empowered with the addition of cards which are earned through exploration, victory, or purchase. These tools for mastering the maps and adversaries in the great struggle are manifestations of power generated by the arcane mathematical coding of the Visions Program. They allow the initiated to travel the path towards triumph, desolation, or even immortality.
