Long Awaited Mac Version of Award Winning Strategy Game Now Available

Matrix Games in association with Worlds Apart Productions (www.worlds-apart.com) is proud to announce Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga is now available for Mac OS X users everywhere (OS X 10.3 or later required). This announcement comes hot off receiving honors as the Best Independent Game of 2005 from Computer Games Magazine and one of the Top Ten Games of 2005; not to mention Editor’s Choice awards from both Computer Games and Computer Gaming World. Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga is a sci-fi themed experience that successfully melds card and strategy gaming into a whole new genre. Now, all this great gameplay is available for Mac users as well!

Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga features a unique set of single player campaigns along with enhanced graphics, an improved user interface, new maps, new cards, new sound effects, four player games, a tournament drafting system, and many minor adjustments to improve the game.

The digital download of Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga is now available at the Matrix Games Online Store, and a Macintosh boxed version will be available for sale within a week. Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga is available to both existing Star Chamber players and those who have yet to try Star Chamber. While this is a stand-alone release, the installation process as well as the online play require an internet connection.

Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga contains 2 single player campaigns, 2 starter decks (or 6 booster packs), 5 Atok Incident boosters, 5 event passes, and 5 exclusive promo cards only available when you purchase the Matrix Games edition. For only $29.99 from the Matrix Online Store, the total value of the starter decks, booster packs, and event passes comes to $31.95 and that doesn’t include the value of the single player campaigns or the 5 special promo cards. For both existing and new players, this is the perfect way to experience the new Star Chamber. Also, the new Atok Incident expansion, which is launching along with The Harbinger Saga, contains over 300 brand new cards to further increase the number of strategies in the already robust Star Chamber catalog.

Star Chamber is a turn-based online strategy board game of space combat, destiny and power politics. Players use special decks of cards that represent the assets and abilities of their favorite alien races, bringing them to life and offering players the opportunity to customize their gameplay. With hundreds of different cards and multiple victory conditions, the number of strategies you can develop is endless. You can conquer your enemy's home world for a military victory, unearth ancient alien artifacts for a cultural win, or double-cross your way to a political victory at the Star Chamber. Cards include game elements such as special ships, heroes, politicians, and special alien technologies. The game models intrigue, economic planning, colonization, and both space and ground combat through both board and card game mechanics. With numerous maps to choose from you will never experience the same game twice in Star Chamber!
