Despite its card-game layout, Lunarch’s Prismata is more Starcraft than Hearthstone and maybe even purer as a strategy game than that. Going free-to-play today (though still early access), I recommend strategy fans give it a try, partly as it defies easy description and mostly because it’s very clever.
I’d call it a turn-based card game without decks, hands, boosters, trading or dice – it’s entirely deterministic strategy and math. Today’s free-to-play launch makes much of it free, minus four episodes of solo story missions, a bundle of puzzles and some restrictions to ranked multiplayer. Below, a new launch trailer.
