Hey look, another card game! With Vampires! VEmpire - The Kings of Darkness [Steam] will release in October and they will have day-1 Linux support.

The official trailer doesn't really give a feel for things, so here's some raw gameplay the developer put up:

The game will have single-player, the ability to play against a friend and also be matched against someone if you're feeling competitive.

I'm actually a big fan of card games, so I'm quite interested to see what it's like when it's released. It will go into Early Access first, so the developer can act on feedback.

It seems the single player against AI will also eventually include a story mode, so you can learn the story behind the characters.

Thanks for the tip, Craig!

Cant' say I'm hyped about yet another CCG, but seeing the lack of offerings with online play lately, I'm willing to give it a go.

Sounds fairly interesting. Faeria was a blast to play (think I spent 80h on it), so I'm eager to try out this one.

It doesn't seem very readable, from the video. Can't really see what is what, all the visual, GUI etc feel quite messy for me, and arts are not so great.

But why not, wait and see.

Dudes this ain't a CCG, it's just a deck builder(no card collecting! You start the game with the same basic deck as your opponent, and build it up during the game from the same pool of cards). I can't get enough of deck builders. The best one is Star Realms IMO, so I will eat up an alternative that runs natively on Linux.

The theme is certainly a lot more appealing than the usual fantasy theme (which I must admit, I'm rather tired of), but I hope they spent some time polishing the audio side a bit before release; I would tire of those sounds quite quickly.

I'm very fond of card games as well. Let's see what we'll see.

I hope they clean up the UI, it seems very messy to me. That said I dont play many card based games at the minute the only one being Gwent that I have to do via WINE.
