Originally crowdfunded by strategy fans for $210,000, Chaos Reborn has been playable via Early Access since last year, but will soon be available for full #release on Linux, Mac and PC on October 26.
“Chaos Reborn – a fast paced, turn-based wizard combat game with an RPG twist. Between 2 and 4 players can challenge each other to magical duels in a variety of arenas using a spell deck of interesting spells and creatures – including the Gooey Blob, Shadow Wood, and more. Planned features include extensive single-player and co-op RPG elements where players can explore the Realms of Chaos fighting Wizard Lords and Kings while collecting artifacts and spells along the way. These Realms can either be procedurally generated or designed by player Wizard Kings. Players will be able to trade items, join Orders (guilds) and ascend social ranks, perhaps to become one of the gods. We plan to add extensive offline modes as well, where you can set up battles with AI wizards, different arenas and custom rule sets.”
The Early Access version supports 2v2 team battles and free-for-all matches, either with turn timers or asynchronously. The campaign and AI battles will not be available until full release.
Chaos Reborn is a successor to Gollop’s 1985 ZX Spectrum classic, Chaos. Pricing has not been revealed, but should follow the same structure as the crowdfunding and pre-order offers, around $20. And is available on Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows PC right now.
