'Spellcraft' Is A New Real-time Battler, Public Alpha In April - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on March 21, 2023 @ 7:00 a.m. PDT

Spellcraft is a genre-defining real-time battler where you actively command an entire team of heroes and cast spells to outplay your opponents.

In Spellcraft, you lead a team of powerful heroes and cast spells in real-time to decide the outcome of the fight. You and your opponent each bring a team of heroes into a fight, each wielding their own unique spells. You’ll arrange your heroes on the board and send them to battle, while you unleash an arsenal of powerful spells in real-time: some deal damage, some disrupt your enemies, and some yeet your heroes to safety in the nick of time.

Choose your party of three heroes to take into the fight and fine-tune your strategy by selecting from unique and powerful spells for each. Showcase your tactical mastery  by casting well-timed spells, dealing damage and disrupting your opponent’s best-laid plans. 

Created by devs behind classics like StarCraft, Diablo, Guild Wars, League of Legends and Magic: ArenaSpellcraft combines elements of competitive online multiplayer and tactical strategy games into an accessible, free-to-play package. Battles are brief and action-filled, so you can get more Ws in your game time!

“We chose our studio’s name as an aspiration: we want to make things that get players to say ‘alright, just one more game!’ In other words, we want to make games players love,” said Jamie Winsor, co-founder of One More Game. “We’ve been running private playtests with real players throughout the course of Spellcraft’s development, and the version of the game that we’re playing today is something we’re very proud — and a little anxious! — to finally put in front of the world. We can’t wait to hear what you think.”

Spellcraft will debut on Steam in a public alpha test that launches on April 6, 2023.

The Spellcraft public alpha will be available as a playtest on Steam starting April 6, 2023, and open to all players unless demand exceeds expectations. Content creators are invited to stream and make content about Spellcraft, and can apply to join the creator program to receive rewards for participation in the public alpha.
