What Is Prismata?
Prismata is an easy-to-learn, fast-paced hybrid strategy game that borrows familiar elements from real-time strategy games, collectible card games, and tabletop strategy games, combining them in a radical new way. Think "turn-based StarCraft", but without a map. Or, think of Hearthstone with workers and build orders instead of decks.
In Prismata, players take turns spending their resources, building up their economies, constructing an army, and obliterating one another until only one side remains. Games last only minutes, but always feel fresh thanks to randomly-generated unit pools that are different every time. Each game, there are new units to construct, new build orders to plan and discover, and new threats to respond to.
Featuring simple and elegant economic and combat mechanics, Prismata rewards tactical, strategic, and decisive play. Will you execute a perfectly-timed rush? Or will you build up a monstrous economy and steamroll your opponent with a massive army? Maybe you'll change your plans entirely when you see what your opponent has in mind!
Lunarch Studios was conceived in 2010, when our designers—a team of five fiercely competitive gaming enthusiasts—set out on a journey to advance the art of online strategy games through aggressive innovation. Experts in a myriad of real-time and turn-based games, our designers were dissatisfied with the industry standard: clunky, shallow titles monetized through exploitative "pay-to-win" schemes. While PhD candidates at MIT, they spent years refining their design, often completely restarting from scratch. Eventually, our founders left MIT to bring the game to market. Lunarch Studios was born.
