Mahokenshi is a unique blend of adventure, deck-building and deep hex-grid strategy.

Create your deck, out-smart your enemy, battle challenging demons and adventure through the Celestial Islands to protect your home from the forces of corruption.

Travel a vast array of vibrant and beautifully designed 3D maps. Let yourself be involved in a magic Japanese atmosphere, where the Mahokenshis are the only hope. You will face many threats through your journey, but, isn’t it all about the honor? You bet it is. Find remote locations, uncover treasures, and leverage the strengths of your samurai house to create powerful combos.

Mahokenshi is a potent combination of deck building and hex-grid strategy that intertwines the deep tactical play of card games, with the strategic turn-based thinking of board games. As Mahokenshi - a Samurai Mage from one of the Celestial Isles' four houses - players need to protect the Kingdom against an encroaching corruption. Through strategy, positioning and tactics, they will need to utilize over 200 lovingly illustrated cards to explore the world, vanquish powerful demons and banish the evil that plagues the land.

Brimming with challenge, Mahokenshi's new development approach invites players to feedback their experiences, participate in development discussions and explore a vibrant world filled with quests, cards and formidable foes, all to restore peace to the Celestial Isles one hex at a time. Meet the different people of the Celestial Islands, save villages, discover shrines and defeat deadly demons. See your battles brought to life with fully animated characters. Perform magical maneuvers, fiery attacks, strong defensive moves, and swift counterattacks on your way to restoring peace to the world.

Publisher Iceberg Interactive and Developer Game Source Studio announced that a free PC demo for Mahokenshi will debut tomorrow as part of the TactiCon (22-26/09) and Games Made in France (22-29/09) digital events hosted on Steam.

Mahokenshi’s free Steam demo will allow deckbuilding fans to experience the Celestial Islands from the perspective of the relentless Ayaka of House Ruby and the newly announced Kaito of House Sapphire, a powerful tactician whose playstyle is based on defense, area of effect, and provocation. The demo will also feature more enemies, a new tutorial, a new mission, a new leveling system, and a new Mahoken tree.

The full game will include two additional characters: stealth master Sota of House Jade and intelligent spellcaster Miskai of House Topaz. Players will be challenged to build their card decks, evolve their chosen character, and expertly strategize to protect the sanctity of the Celestial Islands from the corruption of a forbidden magic. Collect over 200 lovingly illustrated cards, defeat formidable foes, and discover treasure and remote locations. Execute gorgeous fully animated attacks on your journey to restore harmony.

Mahokenshi’s free demo will be available until September 29 upon conclusion of the Games Made in France event.
