Back in March, I posted an Open Call for Battle Realms bugs so that we could make a better game. The outpouring of fan love was and still is amazing. Since that time I’ve received hundreds of emails from all over the world about how amazing and awesome the original Battle Realms still is. (to everyone who has written but hasn’t received a response; please be patient, I’m trying to read and personally answer every one and there are lots.) Many of the emails had really great observations about possible bugs and imbalances with the game which were well thought out and equally well articulated. It speaks to how smart the Battle Realms player really is. What brought a tear to my eye was that most of the emails were so full of love for Battle Realms with the most common statement being “don’t change a thing”.
I was blown away. Thank you for writing. It means a lot to me and it means a lot to the team when I share your emails with them.
Now on to the business of the day. As you know we are working on numerous manifestations of the Battle Realms universe and for some time, my pet project has been a Battle Realms combat card game that I could travel with and play anywhere. I’m a big fan of card and board games but miss them because I can’t seem to get a group of people to play as often as I would like. So, some time ago I started thinking about making a card game that would show off the Battle Realms characters, introduce new Battle Realms characters, and showcase and explore the Battle Realms universe.
I wanted it to be a portfolio piece for the world. A place where we could let all of the Battle Realms story binders bubble to the surface in a fun and playable way. Battle Realms Genesis is that game. It’s going to be so cool. I’m really proud of it and can’t wait to show you more. For now, here’s the title page for the prototype we’re building!
