Nova Blitz is a real-time, digital, trading card game set in a future universe ruled by five Aspects of energy: Arcane, Tech, Divine, Nature, and Chaos. As a Nova, you channel that energy to summon units, use powers, and knock out your opponent. Built from the ground up for quick games and constant player interaction, every match of Nova Blitz is a perfect blend of strategy and action. Each turn plays out in real time, and both players play at the same time. This cuts out all the downtime players experience in a normal trading card game – in Nova Blitz, there’s no waiting, so you’re constantly in the action. Nova Blitz is coming to Steam, iPad, and Android in 2015.

After being greenlit by the Steam community in under 10 days, real-time trading card game Nova Blitz has now returned to Kickstarter with a playable Alpha build. In just one day, Nova Blitz has already secured more than $15,000 from Kickstarter backers -- exceeding 35% of its funding goal. The crowdfunding campaign will end at 9 p.m. Pacific on Thursday August 20, 2015.

Back Nova Blitz on Kickstarter today:

Gameplay and Story

A fresh take on the TCG genre, Nova Blitz offers players quick games that last less than five minutes. Players simultaneously summon monsters, play Powers, and duel in real time -- without waiting for an opponent’s turn. To achieve victory, players need nerves of steel, a sharp mind -- and the ability to mix strategy, tactics, and foresight at a moment’s notice. Combat is instant, intense . . . and vicious.

The universe of Nova Blitz is ruled by the five Aspects of Energy: Arcane, Tech, Divine, Nature, and Chaos. Knowing the differences between them is critical -- since each Aspect has its own strengths, weaknesses, creatures, Powers, and optimum play styles.

Players take on the role of a “Nova” -- a being capable of wielding the Aspects of Energy. Crisscrossing the universe in search of fame and fortune, the player’s ultimate goal is to compete in the Nova Blitz Championship.

While Nova Blitz keeps some of the more familiar aspects of TCGs (e.g., having players supply enough energy to play certain cards), the game’s unique real-time turn system is the main attraction. Dragon Foundry has created a system that allows opponents to play cards simultaneously. In combat, players also choose their attacks and blocks at the same time -- which makes predicting the adversary’s moves vital.

I think the speed initiative for fast play, while it won't suit everyone, should help drive some additiveness and make for interesting tournament events
