Welcome back to the Weekly Wave! Let’s see what news, updates, and announcements have risen to the surface this week!

Altered reaches close to $7 million in support!

This story came out late last week, and since we know what it’s like to launch a Kickstarter campaign, we thought it would be fun to feature in this week’s wave. Equinox Studios, a French-based developer, has been seeking support for their new TCG, Altered, in order to compete with some of the gaming world’s more popular titles, including MTG and Disney Lorcana.

With such a crowded field of strong competition, breaking into the TCG sphere is a challenging feat for any up-start studio looking to get their game on the map. However, Equinox chose to roll the dice and seek support from those who are anxious to see a new title rise up…and it really paid off.


Thanks to almost 15,000 backers, Altered took in a whopping $6.7 million in support, breaking the record for most funds ever to be given to a TCG. Not bad, huh? In case you weren’t aware, Altered is a TCG that focuses more on exploration and discovery as opposed to combat. Based on its mechanics and gameplay, many believe that Altered will give MTG and others a run for their money.

Altered challenges players to craft their own unique adventures by selecting a faction and leading that faction into a host of epic explorations throughout the Altered universe. You can learn more about the game HERE

Altered is set to officially release on August 26, 2024!
