In early July of last year, we first caught wind of Meteorfall, a new deck building game from developer Slothwerks that used a colorful Adventure Time-esque art style and was inspired by great mobile card games like Card Crawl/Card Thief and the cult-classic Dream Quest. In Meteorfall you’d choose one of 4 classes of characters, each with their own deck of cards, and set out to battle monsters using an intuitive left/right swiping mechanic similar to the Reigns games or the Tinder hook up– I mean casual dating app. It all sounded quite lovely and the following September Slothwerks reached out to our community for some beta testers, and I’ve heard nothing but good things from those who have been testing the game since. Well, the time has finally come for Meteorfall to grace the world with its presence as Slothwerks has announced a January 25th release date for the game. Check out the entirely silly and overly catchy launch trailer here.
Oh yes, that little earworm will be sticking around with you for the rest of the day, I just know it. One of my least favorite things about most deck building games it that they can be overly complicated and don’t fit particularly well into short play sessions. It’s one of the reasons I fell so in love with games like Card Crawl and Card Thief as they were complex enough to be interesting but simple enough to play at pretty much any time. I feel like the binary nature of the left/right swiping mechanics in Meteorfall will give it that exact same appeal, but with multiple classes to play as and the ability to unlock additional cards to add to your deck as you go there should still be enough strategy and depth to remain engaging. I’m super excited for it, so look for Meteorfall when it hits on January 25th for $2.99 with no IAP and check out the thread in our forums for much more on the game ahead of its release.
