Superb little free-to-play tactical RPG-stroke-CCG Card Hunter is now on Steam, alongside expansion Expedition to the Sky Citadel.
The client itself seems to be around 200MB, which isn’t exactly a massive download in this day and age, but you do still need to be online to actually play. I’m assuming that the 200MB client contains most of the art and so on, though, so that it doesn’t need to download that during play. No guarantees, though. That’s just a guess.
Card Hunter is basically a tactical RPG, in that you move your heroes around a grid-based area and have them bash monsters in the face. The difference is that they move and attack by playing cards, with different bits of equipment putting different cards into their decks. It’s a novel concept, and one that works extraordinarily well. Give it a shot.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
