Stone Blade Entertainment Announces SolForge: Fusion Release Date

The Kickstarter campaign was a big success and soon, everyone will be able to try out SolForge: Fusion, the new fusion deck game from Stone Blade. The game is scheduled to hit store shelves all over on September 22nd.

From the release:

A first of its kind hybrid deck building game for the digital age, SolForge: Fusion has been meticulously designed as both a physical game that can be played in person, or a digital game to be played remotely through the digital program Tabletop Simulator. Thanks to the unique algorithmically generated card printing process, no two SolForge: Fusion decks are the same, completely upending decades of trading card game tropes where players would often copy whatever “netdeck” was winning that month. 

 “SolForge Fusion represents the culmination of over a decade of development from Richard [Garfield] and I to create a great game unlike any other,” exclaimed Justin Gary. “Players can customize truly one of a kind decks to create a unique and compelling experience every time they play, whether in person or online.”

 In a hybrid deck game, players are able to fuse unique half decks to create a full deck. Each unique deck can be scanned into the game’s online database so players can participate in head-to-head battles and tournaments in person OR online at solforgefusion.com. Since every card that’s played levels up and becomes available in future turns, players get the experience of not only playing their deck, but also continually building it during the game.

 "Combining two procedurally generated half-decks gives an easy way to customize your deck, and wildly expands the possibilities of a collection." said Richard Garfield. "And creating cards by fusing two halves together gives over 15K possible cards in the first set alone, more than were created in the first 20+ years of Magic: The Gathering!"

 The game’s easy to use online systems allows for local hobby game stores to run officially-sanctioned events in person or online, ensuring each store has the capability to customize the support their community needs most - something practically unheard of in this space. With ongoing tournament support, tournament organizers can create their own events that are automatically added to the game’s event finders for easy discovery and participation. Additionally, players are able to level up their cards each time they play through the game’s digital platform, and track a deck’s performance (along with player performance) via the game’s online leaderboard. Outside of your local game and hobby store, tournaments are being hosted at events and conventions such as Gen Con, PAX Unplugged, and more. Players will be able to influence the story and the cards by participating in tournaments and making choices for their Forgeborn that will be reflected in future printings.
