    Hello!

    My name is wolfgang, i'm the developer of VEmpire - The Kings of Darkness, an upcoming history based deck building game. The theme & story are about the habsburg dynasty (sisi!) revived as terrific vampires!

    Although the game is meant to be multi platform, iOS was always the primary target and
    one (if not the main) reason(s) for the game, simply because this things are great devices for card games - and

    i promise: VEmpire looks just insane on retina devices ;-)

    Since nearly 3 years we are working with very talented artists on this project and we are currently in alpha stage and got first feedback at CEGC 2016 (in Vienna), which was very overwhelming!


    Because most iOS gamers are also PC/MAC/Linux gamers we want to bring the game also to this devices and therefore the game is now on steam-greenlight:

    If you check it out, you can see that the resolution of the board in the videos is already in iPAD size!


    Thanks in advance for any feedback and Best Regards from Austria, Wolfgang!

    PS: i hope this is the right place and i've done everything right in the post, if not please tell me i'll change!

    Looks very nice, Wolfgang. Looking forward to hearing more about it. It seems rather peculiar that most/all named characters don't have special abilities listed on the cards, but from what I gather on the website, their primary usage is in expanding your empire, which would seem to give the play a different feel than something like Ascension.

    Thank you!

    The Rulebook with the card-types will be on the website very soon.
    There are different types of cards:
    -Vampires (the attached ones!) give guldens (if played for acquire) or empire-points if played in the empire (only possible once!)
    -Locations which are permanents (give guldens every turn) or hold abilities
    -Different types of spells, offensive & defensive

    The most special things are:
    -The selection of the class - which means "private" (the 2 most left cards =Vampires!) and "public" cards: all locations & spells of both classes!
    -This means that every combination of class-duells makes every game different!
    -The choice: buy further or play in the empire....
    -Groups => cards of a group only count if complete in the empire! (then twice!)
    -Holding ability
    -Spells: Curse, UnCurse, Drawing, Clone, Revive...

    It is more complicated than Ascension, but has more freedom than Dominion. (I like both games a lot!)
    players tell me that it is very addictive (my opinion does not count!)
    at the CEGC 2016 in Vienna the guys always come back to give "the beast" another try...

    Love the name Wolfgang :)
    This is gonna be a great game and I can't wait to play it. I will be following this thread. Thanks for the info Wolfgang!
    I'm not big on some of these other deck builders but I do like the genre and this is finally one on mobile I can get into. I do enjoy the magic duels app but outside of that haven't found any other good deck builders I can get into.
    Dominion and Ascension are very good so I like that you brought in some of that flavor As well!

    @Dailon80 = Thank you! This was the reason for the game; There are so many games out there but how many 'good' deck builders?

    Touch devices are genius for deck builders!

    @Dragan = The iPad is the device this game is especially developed for! Retina supported! It looks sooooo good on a retina device!
    We are working very hard, but we want it to be great - by the middle of the year you'll have it in your hands!
    just follow us!

    Nothing wrong with a new deck builder, especially with an interesting theme. Can't wait for this one.

    Hi Guys!

    Even if VEmpire is built for iOS from it's very first day, and it will be ready for release around the end of the year, i want to announce the upcoming EA-Release on Steam, because i think most of you play also on the PC/Mac/Linux and VEmpire is a meant to be a multiplatform game anyway!

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/619230

    Thanks to all your great support until now (Test, Feedback...) !!!

    For Tips regarding Marketing & Promotion I would be really grateful!

    -cheers, wolfgang
