BitFlip Games’ upcoming PC strategy title, which is described as Magic: The Gathering meets StarCraft, will be unveiled for the first time at PAX 2012 in Seattle from August 31st to September 2nd.
All attendees who visit the BitFlip booth will be given limited edition playing cards from the Minion Master universe and anyone who chooses to pre-order Minion Master between now and the end of PAX will receive a special in-game character.
Minion Master is a Digital Board game that brings together the moment-to-moment tactics of collectible card games with the long-term strategy of miniature war gaming. Players control armies of figurines on a hex-based board and summon their Minions using a custom built deck of cards. Minion Master will boast a Deck Builder, 6 player co-op and versus multiplayer, a Level Editor, and a constantly expanding universe of Minions to control. Players who pre-order get instant access to the game’s Alpha and Beta phases. Inspired by physical RPG board and card games whilst simultaneously adding in elements that are only possible in a virtual world, Minion Master is slated for release on PC this fall.

“Our mission with Minion Master has been to bring together the worlds of tabletop and video games in a fun, approachable way”, said David Steinwedel, Executive Producer of BitFlip Games, “We’ve been heavily influenced by classics such as Magic: The Gathering and Starcraft. With the help of a dedicated community (whose feedback we rely on in shaping the future of the universe), we look forward to showcasing the latest build at PAX Prime 2012”
