The release date for the game has yet to be determined, however an Invitation-Only Beta will be announced soon. The game will initially be available on Windows, Macintosh and Linux platforms as Java and OpenGL drivers are all that are required to run the game.
HeroDex features online solo play versus computer opponents along with competitive and co-operative play against or alongside other players. This brand new Virtual Trading Card Game offers quick-paced matches that can be completed in only a few minutes. The gameplay with a unique feats-based advancement system and a flexible deck building system will keep people coming back for more.
Matches have been described as a cross between Poker and Rock-Paper-Scissors (Roshambo) with bluffing and anticipating your opponent's next move forming a large part of the strategy. All moves are made at the same time with each round finishing once everyone has made their move or the time limit is reached - so even large matches proceed quickly. The suspense of waiting to see what cards your opponent will reveal can become intense and the satisfaction of having outsmarted them delicious.
Players start with a free "Fighter" hero and starting deck. Further cards can be acquired in game or purchased from the store, as can a range of different Heroes each with their own deck. A tutorial introduces new players to the game and allows the first new cards to be added to your deck as you progress.
Play is free, with no subscription or credit card details required and no hidden fees. Buy packs of cards from the store or earn cards in game and once you have them you will never be charged to use them.
Zero Separation is an independent games developer based near London, England.
