Ready for more strategy games with a blending of RPG mechanics? Broken Alliance from the Death and Taxes dev gives strong Heroes of Might and Magic vibes.

Coming out sometime in Q3 2024 with Native Linux support, it pulls in inspiration and elements of Heroes of Might and Magic, Age of Wonders, Master of Magic and Disciples "with a twist", as it features a card combat system that allows each faction to have unique gameplay.

Choose your faction, expand your kingdom, build up your army, train your Heroes and make or break alliances to save your people from a collapsing world. Build up your deck from your Champions and Artefacts you find during your adventures!


  • Go forth into battle! Capture, raid or visit epic locations, subdue or convince other factions to join your cause or die trying.
  • Solve ancient puzzles, collect magical plants, and unearth mighty artifacts to help you on your quests.
  • Earn the loyalty of your Heroes, guiding them down their own personal quests to bring them to the apex of their potential, or have them make the ultimate sacrifice to have a chance at salvation.
  • Rally the various peoples of the world, enlisting them to your cause by forging alliances to serve in your armies as your Units, but at a cost. Earn their trust to upgrade them to be even more formidable!
  • Gather resources and refine them into Mana to cast extraordinary Spells that may decimate entire battlefields or landscapes, permanently scarring the environment or focus on the restoration of the land, earning the favour and boons of the Earth Mother for your kingdom.
  • Unlock the secrets of your ancestors, discover the motivations of your Heroes and meet a variety of characters, all while writing your own story on how you want to save the world.

You can follow it on Steam.

Interesting, though no doubt the word "card" at this point will immediately make a lot of people go "nope!".
