VEmpire – The Kings of Darkness is a vampire themed digital deck-building game. The games available on Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows. Yet inspired by one of history’s most influential royal dynasties. Hence the house of Habsburg.
So VEmpire is a turn-based card game about destroying the opponent’s empire.
Since gamepaly has innovative mechanics and an exciting. Also an atmospheric theme that is about the resurgence of the Habsburg rulers as terrific vampires. Therefore I am keen to play it, not that card games are my thing. Yet I am curious to step outside of Blizzard for something different.
Also the player can choose to play against the AI. As well as inviting a friend for a casual game. While also being able to play a match against a server-selected opponent.
