Today’s Spotlight is Mystic Vale by Nomad Games, a digital adaptation of a deckbuilding card game by Alderac Entertainment.

Each player controls a druidic clan trying to cleanse the Valley of Life from a dark curse that has been placed upon the land. Each turn, players will place cards on their field to gain advancements and vale cards. You can watch a trailer above.

Players will need to carefully manage their power and plot out their turns wisely, because a decay mechanic could result in their turn ending early. Score the most victory points to become the most power druidic clan in the valley.

The digital version of Mystic Vale is available on Windows PC and Mac via Steam for $14.99.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

A curse has been placed on the Valley of Life. Hearing the spirits of nature cry out for aid, clans of druids have arrived, determined to use their blessings to heal the land and rescue the spirits. It will require courage and also caution, as the curse can overwhelm the careless who wield too much power.

Mystic Vale is a deck-building card game, in which players take on the role of druidic clans trying to cleanse the curse upon the land.
