Description

War Haven is an exciting new game that couples fantastic artwork with intense strategic gameplay. It adapts the collectible card game (CCG) genre to the style of a tabletop war game to bring you a whole new kind of strategy card game. The focus on spacial tactics gives the player a broader scope of implementable strategy than any other CCG while retaining the haphazard, visceral nature of combat in a tabletop RPG. The game takes place in the far future on Haven, soon to be the last livable planet in the galaxy. With races from all parts of space competing for dominance of this alien world, the game features a rich diversity of characters and cards with abilities suited to a variety of unique strategies and play-styles. The game's rich story environment comes to life on every card with wonderful illustrative work by the likes of Keith Thompson, Shaun Mitchell, Austen Mengler, Daniel Trajtemberg and many other great artists.

History

War Haven is Fringe Games' first game and really the reason we all got together to make games in the first place. Ray came up with the idea for War Haven a few years ago, and after toying with it and refining the gameplay for a while he actually made a set of (index) "cards" and began shopping the idea around to friends and aquaintenances who were into app development. Everyone who played it loved it. Soon, a small team of interested people decided to invest their time into making the game a reality, and Fringe Games was born. Though it was initially being developed solely as a digital CCG focused on the iOS and mobile markets, fan feedback led us to start a Kickstarter campaign to release the game in a physical edition. However, largely due to our own inexperience and the fact that we rushed into the Kickstarter with a scant month's planning, the effort was unsuccessful. Fringe Games remains dedicated to getting the game released in a physical edition and the digital release of the game will move ahead as planned.
