Golem Gates is a new RTS out now in Early Access, and it's a collaboration between two studios. Laser Guided Games are veterans of Epic Games who have worked on Gears of War and Unreal Tournament, and Hollow Earth Inc are the art design studio behind Marvel Studios movies such as Spider-Man: Homecoming, Iron Man, Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther.
Golem Gates is available now on Steam Early Access and launches on March 28. It's a mix of card battler and real-time strategy. Players collect cards, or 'Glyphs', create a deck, then send them out to battle - which takes the form of an RTS. The universe is dark fantasy, where players command forces and summon the mysterious power called 'The Ash' embedded within the barren world's atmosphere.
Matt Oelfke, Founder and Lead Developer at Laser Guided Games (and former Gameplay Programmer at Epic Games), had this to say about their game:
"With Golem Gates, we set out to create a high-concept game that evolves the collectible card game genre by merging its most appealing elements with those of fast-paced real-time strategy games. By combining calculated deck building and furious real-time combat, Golem Gates adds multiple layers of depth, while remaining accessible to newcomers and long-standing fans of both genres."
In Early Access now Golem Gates only has versus multiplayer, but once the game launches on March 28 it will get a full single-player campaign.
