Playable demo available right now.
Project Atom, a division of Active Gaming Media, have just launched a Kickstarter campaign for 'Astro Boy: Edge of Time' a free-to-play digital card game featuring characters from almost every single creation of legendary manga artist Osamu Tezuka, featuring art by a whole host of renowned Japanese artists and creators, such as Suda 51 and Hiroshi Matsuyama. The game features a soundtrack with music by Giorgio Moroder and Akira Yamaoka. Project Atom describes the title as follows:
Unique Positional Combat: players have access to two rows in combat: an offensive row where cards are able to attack the enemy, but cannot protect the player, and the defensive row where cards defend incoming attacks but are unable to initiate attacks.
Reimagined Characters: Fresh new redesigns of Tezuka’s most famous characters crafted by Japan’s most legendary illustrators.
Story Mode: Experience a whole new adventure with Astro and other famous Tezuka characters that intertwines a deep storyline with unique card-based combat.
Multiplayer: Battle other players in multiple ranked and unranked online modes and prove yourself as the best summoner in The Sprawl.
Ongoing Development: The experience is always growing! Regular updates for ASTRO BOY: EDGE OF TIME will add new cards, new story mode episodes, and new multiplayer modes, so there’s always something new around the corner.
For those interested, a free demo is available to download right now.
