The upcoming roguelike deck builder Meteorfall probably has the best art I've seen in a long time, and, as a bonus, it also seems to be great fun to play. And now, you can help the developers improve it by applying to become a beta tester in our forums. Meteorfall, in case you haven't read our earlier story or visited our forum thread, is a card game where you pick a character—each with their own basic deck—and then visit different locations to take out all kinds of monsters. Killing monsters earns you new cards, which you, of course, use to customize your deck with an eye towards card synergies.

The developers inspirations include games like Dream Quest and Card Crawl/Card Thief, all of which are fantastic and bode well for Meteorfall. And the art is fanastic, with an Adventure Time feel while still retaining its own personality. The game will be premium and will come out before the end of the year. If you want to help its development, head over here and apply for the beta. And even if you aren't interested in beta testing the game, you should still head over to our forum thread to see some more samples of the game's great art.

    Dev here - happy to answer any questions people have about the game!

      Only two questions:
      1. When is it being released?
      2. Why is the answer to that question not "Today"?

      Seriously, this feels like an insta-buy to me. Anything comparable to Dream Quest will always get my attention.

        Planning on a January 2018 release. It IS a bit far, given the game is mostly done (minus some balance and polish that I'm still working). Two reasons - I'm waiting for my sound guy to free up from other projects. The other important reason is that the holidays are hyper competitive for small indies, with lots of sales from big companies stealing the spot light.

        And yeah - Dream Quest is still one of my top iOS games of all time. I think the mechanics are genius and while I do think Meteorfall ended up being 'lighter' in terms of the mechanics, I think you'll definitely enjoy Meteorfall if you enjoyed DQ. I'd also love to add some new cards after release, especially more advanced cards, so that I can fully explore the design space. I've already gotten some great suggestions on making more complex cards from a few people I showed the game to.

        Price is TBD but it will for sure be premium, probably either $1.99 or $2.99 with no IAP.

        Thanks so much for your interest, and hope you enjoy it once it's out!

        Yeah, that makes total sense. I wouldn't want to put out a small game with Christmas coming up, too easy to get lost in the shuffle. Looking forward to the beta.

      When is the TV show coming?

      • Eric

        LOL I wish!

    • Modjular

      Hope I'm not too late. I can't tell from the screenshots, but is this game played in portrait mode or landscape?

      • Eric

        Portrait - one of the design goals was to be able to play using one hand, which I think is most natural for a casual game.

    Yeah, that makes total sense. I wouldn't want to put out a small game with Christmas coming up, too easy to get lost in the shuffle. Looking forward to the beta.

      Do we have some sort of psychic link?
