Originally released in January last year, Meteorfall – Journey from developer Slothwerks is a card-based dungeon crawler that we’ve enjoyed very much. Since then, Slothwerks has pushed out several updates for the game, turning it into a bigger and better experience.

The nicest thing about Meteorfall is that it features a binary action system in which you just have to swipe left or right to decide a course of action – kind of similar to the Reign games. This easy control scheme works incredibly well on mobile devices, resulting in an experience that is simple yet still retains a lot of the strategy often seen in a more complex card game. If you haven't played this game yet, check out its trailer below for an idea of what it's like:

But then we wondered, what if Slothwerks actually made a more complex card game? What would it be like? Well, today we finally get the answer to that question as the developer has just announced Meteorfall: Krumit’s Tale, a brand new game that expands upon the formula set by Journey. Many characters from the original game will make a return, but the binary action mechanic has now become a grid-based system that basically alters the entire dynamic of the game.

Exciting, isn’t it? The not-so-exciting part is that it’s still going to be quite a long time before we can get our hands on Krumit’s Tale. From what Slothwerks said, the game is expected to stay in Steam Early Access anywhere between 6 months and a whole year before the studio can feel comfortable launching a final version. That means it’ll be even longer before the game makes its way to mobile.

On the bright side, the original Meteorfall still offers tons of fun and is a nice way to kill time while waiting for the upcoming release. Also, you can check out Meteorfall: Krumit’s Tale on Steam right now to add it to your Wishlist. Doing so means you’ll receive a notification as soon as the game launches in Early Access. We’ll definitely be following this title, so stay tuned for any future update!
