About

What is Forgotten Lore?Forgotten Lore is an online trading card game. It features dueling with random matchmaking, playing with friends, in game chat, and of course card trading between players. Every card is a Steam Inventory item, which can be traded and/or put on the marketplace. Players set their own rules - we will stay out of card trading as much as possible.

Collect souls to summon spirits, use your spirits to crush your opponents. Take their tomes both to gain power and to learn more about the story. The game is based in a world far away from our own - in another time. So far away that most of it's lore has been lost to time. Battle after battle, the secrets of the world will reveal themselves to you.GameplayEach player can create their own deck of up to 64 pages, or cards. Place your pages into a Tome, and your deck will be born. Each Tome has it's own unique ability. For example, the default tome card is Leech - which hurts the user by 1 HP every turn, but giving them 2 souls (for summoning cards) in exchange. Another is Mill, which allows summoners to eat away at their own deck for souls. Nothing gained or lost each turn, only what they choose to sacrifice from their own hand.

On a player's turn, he/she is able to summon cards, use magic cards, attack the other player's cards or the other player directly. Each player starts with 64 HP, so the goal is to get their HP to zero. With a wide variety of cards with their own unique abilities, the ways to go about it are endless.

The game features a sacrificial system, to summon powerful cards at the expensive of weaker cards (or alternatively - just summoning the stronger cards at a super high soul cost). There are status effects, such as poison, burn, freeze, etc. Overheal also is a big part of the game - healing beyond the normal limitations of a card's abilities.

Early Access Review played 10 Times against Bot and all 10 Lost ... Bot has the Same cards like you ... Hardly Sheepable!!! Onlien vs. Players + NetCode or AFK ... Fun (NOT) ... Game is not Bad ... There is still a lot missing ... EDIT: To Level UP .. Can it Be very long Lasting ...

Product received for free Early Access Review The Fact that I received the Game for free doesn't change my Mind about the Game! In General, there is not much to say (yet!). What I can say, however, is that it's worth it! The Game itself has only just entered the Early access phase and is therefore far from fully finished. Still, it's definitely Fun to play a Round with Friends every now and then. There are just as many Features on offer that some might particularly like. Things like integrating the Steam inventory. The Cards (and Booster Packs) are available in the Steam inventory and can be traded individually. Forgotten Lore Is regularly updated, so there are more things to come and the existing Content is further improved. A clear Buy Recommendation from myself, as I see great Potential for the Future here! :)

Product received for free early access review forgotten lore... A simple game in appearance, with a design not complex and that does not give too much envy. And that's not wrong. Let's stay honest, the game still has everything to prove. Between bugs, matchmakings almost impossible because the number of players is too low, and a gameplay that remains to be a little more worked, the game disgusts more than one just in the poster. But forgotten lore is mostly a gamble. The bet of a dev (or two I'm not sure, but I believe it is alone) to make a card game and make it grow. And that's where the price comes from; the €10 are not there to have access to the game and be able to entertain themselves, but help the team to make the game grow because they have something quite rare: passion. Just see that every week they put new cards, that they are always there on the discord, to understand that they want it! Beyond helping the devs, the game needs you! Indeed the community is not very large and yet everything revolves around this concept of community. Proposing maps in the workshop or helping with the universal translation of the game is greatly put forward, or even exchange cards or sell them on the steam market. In summary: the game is not Super entertaining at the moment, but you just have to add its stone to the building. Edit: I just realized that I was not making a super nice portrait, so I will rephrase: this is a game in development. There I think I chose the right words. At worst to make you an idea look at the other critics (anglophones) and the discord, Twitter of the devs, all this all this.
