Spicy Horse’s New Collectible Card-Time Strategy Looks Mighty Familiar

Coming later this year to PC, Mac, Linux and tablets everywhere, Spicy Horse’s (thankfully) tentatively titled Hell Invaders brings collectible card games to life in full 3D real-time strategy battles. It’s sort of like EA’s BattleForge, only — OK, it’s pretty much BattleForge.

While I’m sure there’ll be elements to the CCG/RTS from American McGee’s studio that are completely different from EA’s CCG/RTS, right now it’s looking a lot like the same game, only different. Players collect, trade and upgrade cards, battling them in player-versus-player arenas or through a single-player campaign mode.

Even the art brings BattleForge to mind. Here’s the BattleForge logo:

And here’s a poster image for Hell Invaders:

And what the hell, here they are together:

Now I’m not complaining. There’s always room for more collectible card-time strategy games. Plus, Spicy Horse hasn’t revealed the game’s final title or publisher yet — for all we know this could be Battle Forge 2.

Spicy Horse remains mum about further details for the time being, so we’ll perch outside their window and stare creepily inside until they decide to tell us more. In the meantime, screenshots!

  • Every AAA game cover nowadays has blue on one side and red on the other like that. You could equally stick the Battle Forge logo on eg the Mass Effect 3 cover and it’d fit in there too.

    • Yeah, I think Cracked have done a few things about how all posters for certain types of movies are blue and orange. Opposite sides of the colour wheel and that sort of thing.
