Hello everyone!

I'm new to this forum, after stumbling upon this post where members were talking about Prismata, a new online competitive strategy game made by the company I work for!

We've recently opened up alpha access to people supporting our Kickstarter campaign, but we also love raising awareness by giving out keys to people like you guys. Both our devs and a lot of our playerbase love Dominion, as there are a lot of similarities with our game. In fact, the earliest iteration of Prismata was codenamed MCDS (Magic/Chess/Dominion/Starcraft) in honor of the games that inspired it.

If you would like an alpha access key, or you have any questions about the game, please reply to this topic.

About Prismata:

Like Dominion, players in Prismata take turns purchasing "cards" using various resources. In addition to a base set of units available every game, each new game is fresh thanks to a randomly-generated pool of purchasable units. Instead of competing for victory points, you try to defeat your opponent by building a superior army. You hold your whole deck in your hand and you're only limited by the resources that your economy can generate. In this way, it's a bit like a Starcraft build-order competition with no micro and no RNG elements. This video will give you a good idea of what playing Prismata feels like:



Since launching the Kickstarter, we have around 300 people online at any given moment playing against our AI and each other in the automatcher.

For more information, you can visit these links:

Again, if you want an alpha key, please reply to this topic.

If you already have a key, feel free to post your username so that you can play against each other! My username is phienn, so feel free to challenge me in-game :)

Hi phienn, and welcome to the forum!  Are you one of the devs?

(I don't need an alpha key though, I'm an engineer backer and have an extra burning a hole in my pocket! :))

Oh hey Kirian! Thanks so much for backing the campaign ;D I'm not a dev.

Truth be told, I'm a video game enthusiast who converted to a Prismata addict and Lunarch Studios intern!

I'm still working through the tutorial, but I'll add you to play when I've got the basics down.

Do you think we should have a thread for Prismata ID's?

At risk of wasting way too much time, I'll gladly take an alpha key. If I decide I have plenty of time to waste, I'll be liopoil.

Does it cost you anything to give out keys? If not, I'd like one.
