The Acclaimed Sci-Fi Trading Card/Strategy Game Coming to Matrix

 

Matrix Games is pleased to announce they have signed Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga from Worlds Apart Productions (www.worlds-apart.com).  This famed strategic trading card game set in a sci-fi themed universe will be released as part of the Matrix Games line of products later this year.  Star Chamber:  The Harbinger Saga will have enhanced graphics and an improved UI, new maps, new cards, four player games, a tournament drafting system, and many minor adjustments to improve the game.  The engine is based on the critically acclaimed he Lord of the Rings Online Trading Card Game.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “Star Chamber is a fresh design with outstanding gameplay and we look forward to playing a key role in its success.”

 

Scott Martins, President of Worlds Apart Productions, stated, “Matrix Games is an expert when it comes to publishing strategy games and we are confident Star Chamber is one of the best.  This will be an excellent partnership that will increase awareness of Star Chamber among strategy gamers around the world.”

 

Star Chamber is a turn-based online strategy board game of space combat and diplomacy, and players use special decks of cards that represent the assets and abilities of their favorite alien races. With hundreds of different cards and three 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 Council. Cards include game elements such as ships, heroes, politicians, and special alien technologies, and the game models intrigue, economic planning, and both space and ground combat. With numerous maps to choose from you will never experience the same game twice in Star Chamber.

 

The original Star Chamber has received some incredible reviews, including Editor’s Choice from Computer Gaming World, a 92% from Ferrago, a 90% from Game Zone, and an 8.8 from Gamespot (with a perfect 10 in Gameplay)!  With this deluxe re-release the sites are set on even higher scores, both from reviewers and players alike.
