Hey there! The Age of Rivals Blog has moved to www.darkinertia.com/blog!
Our plan for releasing AoR has changed a little since our last update. We are currently running two beta programs in parallel: you can play the game either on our website (RobotoGames.com) or on Kongregate.com if you are a (premium) Kong+ user. The only in-game difference is that Kongregate users have the ability to spend Kreds in addition to coins to purchase card packs. Kongregate also provides forums and chat alongside the game. Otherwise the two games are identical, and it’s possible for users on one site to play games vs. users on the other.
Sometime soon we will move out of beta and launch on the free part of Kongregate. We may keep the game running on our own website as well, but if we don’t, we will provide a way to transfer your data/progress to a Kongregate account (if you have a Kong+ account and want to transfer now, email us). We are not planning on resetting data again, so no one in either beta will lose any progress.
We are still planning a mobile (iOS + Android) launch as well, but not until after we are launched and running smoothly on Kongregate.
Currently, we are working on 3 big upcoming features for AoR:
Monthly stats and tournament - This is a way to see how good you are relative to other players and to earn rewards for your rank.
Alliances - This is a way to join together with other players and earn cooperative rewards.
Campaigns - These are solo (vs the computer) levels that you can play through to earn brand new unique rare and epic cards. The first campaign will feature 6 levels, with more to follow on a regular basis.
So far the beta program has been fantastic, and we’re having a lot of fun talking to users and getting feedback. As long as you all keep playing, we’ll keep trying to make the game better! Thanks!
