Golem Gates first episode out today on Steam

The dark fantasy strategy game releases first major episode.

Golem Gates, the real-time strategy and collectable card game hybrid has released its first major singleplayer content update today on Steam. The singleplayer aims to have a lore-rich based world through distributing the story campaign by episodes or “Books” while the game is still in Early Access. The first entry surrounding the story revolves around the games main protagonist, The Harbinger and the Golem Gates themselves, the ominous giant structures that protect the enemy. With the release of the first episode here is what Matt Oelfke, founder and lead developer at Laser Guided Games had to say about the singleplayer.

“With the introduction of the Golem Gates single-player campaign, players can now further immerse themselves in its arcane setting. Our Early Access players enjoying Golem Gates multiplayer side couldn’t get enough of the world we created, so we’ve expanded our scope to deliver even more single-player content than originally planned. Book 1 is just the beginning, and we can’t wait to hear what fans think!”

In the game, players collect cards called Glyphs and strategically weave them into a deck to prepare for battle. Encounters are fast-paced and highly tactical with streamlined resource management to keep the focus on the unrelenting action. Take your decks online with your friends or other opponents through both competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes. In addition to the story update, they have also added a new Trials Mode with a series of diverse challenges.
