Dragon Evo (free to play online card game) needs your help

7 posts in this topic

Some time ago we created a game called Dragon Evo, which is a free to play online card game. But due to a lot of requests of making the game easier to play we decided to rebuild the game from the ground up.
After a long time of planning and reworking the ground idea and game mechanism, the work on "Dragon Evo the card game" has started again.
Some new team members have joined and the ground rules of the game has been simplified, but the keeping the game essence and without limiting the possibility to time and plan your attacks.

[b]Play it, wherever you want, on whater device you want[/b]
We want to build an action card game where you can play however you feel like. Bring your game with you when you travel, meet up for a local game with friends or play opponents from around the world. Play it whether you're on the move or in the comfort of your own living room.
Using html 5 and related technologies we're bringing you a gaming experience tailored to the device you're playing on. Here are some examples:[list]
[*]Fire up your tablet device (iPad or Android tablet), log in to the website and open up your games list. Find the game you're playing with your friend and select "Show game board". The game board then opens up on your tablet - fullscreen and is updated live as the game progresses. Put your tablet down and open up the browser on your phone. Log in, find the game you're playing and select "Game deck", and the cards you're playing with will be shown on your phone. Play cards from your phone and watch the tablet update automatically as you play cards, attack your opponent or your opponent plays.
[*]Log in to dragonevo.com on your smart tv or computer. Find the game you're playing and select "Show game board", and watch the game play out on your big screen! Use your phone, tablet or a different computer to control your cards.
[*]Play on the go! Fire up dragonevo.com in your mobile browser and use the mobile view to get a full game experience with a layout tailored to your device. Play the full game but with a simplified experience.
[*]Play on your computer! Fire up your desktop browser, go to dragonevo.com and open up the main game view in your browser, where you have the game board, card view and everything else you need!
[/list]

We will begin testing the game as soon as the basic game mechanisms are in place and we will let more and more people in, until those who have signed up for a beta access(or was registered for testing earlier)
have access to the game. In the meantime you can check out or [url="https://www.facebook.com/DragonEvoThecardgame"]Facebook Page[/url] or our [url="https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/105501147172105536563/105501147172105536563/about"]Google+ Page[/url] for any updates.



But we need your help. Please take a few minutes to visit our Indiegogo page: [url="http://www.indiegogo.com/dragonevo?a=21864"]http://www.indiegogo.com/dragonevo?a=21864[/url]

Just a tiny little update.
[img]https://fbcdn_sphotos_h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/479106_450254238319019_1459814849_o.jpg[/img]
Here is the current view of the Game board. (we will not reveal the ingame card look at this moment)
Ingame private chat is implemented, as seen at the top. Hovering the mouse over will make it drop down, removing the mouse cursor from the chat window will dock it back up.

(all images are work in progress and subject to change and may look completely different in the final version)
