War rages across the lands in fantasy strategy game Legends of Callasia! (Video)
Legends of Callasia, the fantasy-themed strategy game by top Southeast Asian game developer Boomzap Entertainment, begins its full release on Steam with a week-long sale event. Inspired by classic turn-based strategy games like Civilization, Heroes of Might & Magic, and Risk, Legends of Callasia adds an original simultaneous gameplay mechanic that keeps games moving quickly, even in multiplayer mode while adding deep strategy elements. Easy to pick up and learn, the game has a classic tabletop feel, allowing players to build and control heroes and armies, build castles and cities, and control territories and kingdoms.
The game includes 30 playable single-player campaign missions, over 35 multiplayer and skirmish maps, and thousands of lands to control! There are three factions to choose from – The Hundred Kingdoms, The Faeborne, and The Revenant – each with their own unique heroes, units, and cards. Players can plan and resolve their turns all at the same time, without waiting for others to finish. This makes for faster games, and adds another strategic element in predicting other players’ moves during online multiplayer.
As part of the launch, Boomzap is giving away amazing prizes through an upcoming tournament. Winning players may become a part of the game by naming territories and maps in the game. The grand winner will be made into a new playable hero!
Download Legends of Callasia from Steam and start practicing for the tournament to be immortalized in the game! The full version is available for $24.99 USD (discounted at $19.99 USD until June 17, 2016), while a separate demo version can be downloaded for free.
“”In my opinion, the best part about this game is that it’s not free-to-play. Pay once and have fun; no boosters and no race for better items to get ahead of other players.””
“Legends of Callasia hits all the right marks and is shaping up to be something really rather special indeed.”
Alpha Beta Gamer
“The art of the game is simple yet vibrant and resembles the maps of board games. A definite old school theme emanates from the aesthetics. The maps, cards, and portraits of heroes are all well drawn and definitely accentuate the quality of the game. The music has a medieval high-fantasy feel to it, and the sound effects of attacks and such are well done. The visuals and sounds are definitely polished and make the game feel so much better, even in the pre-beta stage.”
