Codename Entertainment is bringing its absurdly-deep idle clicker Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms to iPad and Android tablets in the second quarter of this year. This officially-licensed Dungeons and Dragons clicker features a ton of Champions from Dungeons and Dragons, including characters from R.A. Salvatore’s novels, as you explore the Sword Coast and the Forgotten Realms. Want to have an army with Drizzt Do’Urden? Now is your time to shine!
If you never played Crusaders of the Lost Idols, you might wonder why you should care about Idle Champions. Well, while it is a clicker, it’s got a lot going on. You build comlicated formations of heroes, whose different abiltiies can power up different heroes in different ways. Oh, and instead of having one giant quest that you repeat with a New Game Plus, there are all sorts of quests to go on, with different hero formations, and objectives to play through. Codename Entertainment runs all sorts of limited-time events, including buffs to certain champions, just to throw a few more wrenches in to your plans. There’s a whole aspect of planning and strategy that just does not exist in other idle games that is on display in Codename Entertainment’s titles.
It’s super-easy to lose a ton of time in Crusaders of the Lost Idols, and by all appearances, Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms delivers all of that and more. Idle Champions is currently in Early Access on Steam, and you can expect a mobile launch in the coming months. Crusaders has cross-platform account support, and I’m hoping Idle Champions has the same feature, so that progress carries over, in case I decide I want to lose hours at a time again the way Crusaders ruled my life for a while there.
