Who is developing Cabals: The Card Game?
The game is being developed by a Finnish game studio Kyy Games.
We are a small, indepedent game developer founded in May 2009. Before Cabals: The Card Game, we have created two original iPhone and iPad titles of our own (Legends of Elendria: The Frozen Maiden and Cooties) and several games for other publishers. These projects have allowed us to polish our skills for our long-term goal: developing and publishing Cabals: The Card Game.
Why an online TCG?
Because we feel that touchscreen devices and online gameplay are a perfect match for trading card games. The smart devices allow you to find opponents to play anywhere and at any time, and they are also much more transportable than huge card collections. Also, not having to deal with printing, storing and distributing physical cards keeps the costs down.
TCGs are also our personal passion. The CEO and co-founder of Kyy Games, Mika Rosendahl, is a former Magic: the Gathering national champion and a Pro Tour player, and the rest of the team are avid card and board game fans.
What does the free download include?
With the free download you get the full game with a full set of features, including your own account with a unique username, the free online multiplayer, single-player mode, and all the upcoming updates.
In addition, when you create a new account, you get a starter set and some currency to buy extra cards to get you started. The value of this set is about $6 - not bad for a free game!
Is Cabals: The Card Game the same on all platforms?
Cabals: The Card Game is available for iPhone, iPad, Android devices, and browsers. The game is exactly the same on all the platforms.
It's also a full cross-platform title, so someone playing online on iPad can end up playing against someone playing online on Android.
Is my account tied to a specific device?
No. You can access your account and decks and play on any device using your own account name and password.
What are the different cabals like?
The first release of Cabals: The Card Game includes four different cabals to play.
Order of Zahir relies on the esoteric art of alchemy. They are masters over both mind and matter, and strike at their enemies with strange poisons and animated creations. Their goal is domination over everything.
Vril Society combines strange Vril energy to the latest technological discoveries for powerful and unusual results. They may lack in subtlety, but they more than make up for it in overpowering force and ruthlessness.
Danann Covenant have summoned the forgotten Sidhe to their side, and combined the ancient faery tricks with their own magickal talents. You can never know quite what to expect from Danann Covenant - which is exactly how they prefer it.
Bearclaw Brotherhood is built upon the powers of the old shamans and the command they have over the land, spirits and people of Mother Russia. They may be slow to rouse, but their full might is terrifying beyond comparison.
How can I combine different cabals?
It's often useful to combine the talents of different factions in a single deck for interesting and powerful card combinations.
Order of Zahir and Vril Society together form a faction called Dominion that strives to control everything, nature and humankind alike. They can be used together.
Danann Covenant and Bearclaw Brotherhood form a faction called Primal that above anything believes in the power of unfettered nature. They can be used together.
