The style of this game is a blend of dieselpunk and ultimate fantasy with a broad variety of skills, power, and looks combinations.
High Voltage Software’s Chief Creative Officer, Eric Nofsinger explained,
“We’re all super avid CCG fans so developing the game has been an amazing experience. In fact, we built the game after prototyping a physical game board and cards so we could get it exactly right,
It’s a true card game come-to-life all around the player, and with features both surprising and familiar, Dragon Front is a highly engaging nail-biter till the end.”
Considering the popularity of card game, Dragon Front has potentials to become one of the most popular VR games for Oculus in its early days. The social aspect of the Rift could provide a further boost making the game viral.
While trying to appeal the established board game and CCG audiences, the latest project by High Voltage might also please the gaming and virtual reality aficionados with its easy to play appeal, as there are numerous variables to keep the audiences engaged.
You can choose from the diverse theme of parties with exemplary traits, creative strategies, and unique powers. Every deck of the card holds a champion. The cost of the champion is diminished as soon as his or her side faces defeat, which ensures an epic showdown in the final minutes of the game. Out of 260 battlefield fortifications, magic spells, and battle-hardened soldiers, you can easily construct a deck of 30 cards. The game will be launched with two different factions that will be increased with every update, which will consist of new landscapes, champions, and factions.
