  • ARCANIUM: Rise of Akhan



Welcome Adventurers!

ARCANIUM: Rise of Akhan" is an ambitious and unique title. A Story-driven, single-player Strategy Card game of epic proportions, that merges the "Roguelike" & "Deckbuilding" genres in many new ways. Arcanium is a tale of fellowship and bravery and is set in a fantasy world of anthropomorphic animals in which good, evil, magic and technology collide.

Form a party of three Heroes and embark on a dangerous journey in order to defeat Akhan the Calamity, and save the World of Arzu from destruction. But beware, should one of your party members succumb to corruption, your quest has come to its end!

Here at SUPERCOMBO games, we are inspired by some of our favorite games like the “Lord of the Rings” LCG (Fantasy Flight), Dungeons and Dragons (Wizards of the Coast), Slay the Spire (Megacrit), Faster than Light (Subset Games), Hearthstone (Blizzard Ent.), and classic RPG games like Diablo (Blizzard Ent.) and Baldur's Gate (Bioware). We are also board games fanatics and relish in a good “Choose your own adventure” book. We wanted ARCANIUM to borrow some elements from all these amazing titles, genres and mediums. The result is a unique and genre-defining game that we hope will inspire you in return and scratch the nostalgia itch you may have for some of the games that we all played growing up.




The game features unique mechanics that set it apart from the other existing titles in the Genre:

Explore a vast continent broken down into several Provinces each with a unique feel and a different set of challenges. Each province represents one "Chapter" of our story and can be replayed any number of times with various difficulty levels.

This is our fancy terminology to say that you are in total control of your own Journey! Roam freely inside full-3D procedural maps, but keep an eye on the corruption meter... The longer you stay in a Province, the harder the enemies get!

Extra chance to ambush the enemy at Night, extra chance to encounter “Elusives” during the Day, the mechanic offers a deep and exhilarating layer of immersion that has a direct impact on every decision you make.

Choices you make have a lasting impact on the rest of your Run. Environmental hazards, corrupted tiles, handicaps, and dangerous curses await! The Provinces you visit evolve and crumble before your eyes, as you make your way to Akhan's Lair.

Every turn you must choose your abilities wisely, coordinating all three heroes in your team from a common pool of action points. Our innovative combat system is easy to learn while offering tremendous strategic depth.

Control a party of three Heroes that act individually on the battlefield, and each have their own abilities (and Ultimate abilities), equipment, and upgrades. In battle, Heroes can even swap with each other, allowing the healthier Heroes to step in front of the incoming damage and protect your more fragile party members.

Many unique heroes with varying mechanics and themes to keep you brainstorming for new compositions and combinations. Each have a unique starting deck of Ability cards that fits one of 6 classes. Triple Supports? All ranged Abilities? Damage-over-time heavy? Anything goes! Find the play-style that works for you.

Find powerful Artifacts, gain new Ability cards, learn cross-character Abilities, and discover consumable items throughout your journeys. You can edit your Heroes' Ability decks and Equipment rosters at any time outside of combat.

Arcanium has tons of content to unlock and offers massive replayability. Playing Heroes will level them up between Runs and progressively unlock their full sets of 24 ability cards. Additionally, reaching certain milestones on your favorite Heroes will enhance their look via skins and other various cosmetic items so that you can slay your foes in style!


ARCANIUM is our first title under the name SUPERCOMBO. The studio was created in late 2017 by a small team of 4 passionate individuals composed of Remi Marchand (CEO, Lead Designer & Game director), Josh Kohlmeier (Technical director & Lead developer), Jacob Rommann (Senior developer) and Jaslynn Tham (Art Director). Together, we created an IP that feels as welcoming as it is epic, filled with bold and colorful characters, and places to explore. So far the game has been self-funded. Throughout the development period we have hired dozens of experts in various fields (music, sound effects, art direction, creative writing, etc…) and immersed ourselves with our community to help bring our vision to life.

We are a serious team of creative game developers that are also business growth-oriented. Our mission is to surprise and delight players by creating unique, innovative games that explore uncharted areas, exude creativity and have a strong emphasis on storytelling.

We've updated our Roadmap to reflect the latest changes. Check it out and let us know if you have any questions ! Cheers! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/34906473/a475afda3a7475a4245fec37d1f59cfef62390ec.jpg
