per month

Over 12 months, a $5 contribution adds up to the cost of a newly released console game. We aim to provide you with at least as many hours of entertainment! Your donation of $5 allows us to maintain and expand Fatal Core. With 10,000 donations at this tier, Fatal Core would expand and thrive for many years to come, becoming a fully polished entry into the online TCG market.

Like our "no purchase" philosophy? Eager to take initiative and help build Fatal Core into something great? Here is your chance! Psion-level donors will receive access to our test servers, allowing for some hands-on time with new cards and features. We will work together to make Fatal Core balanced, and every aspect of gameplay rewarding.

You've had some hands-on time with Fatal Core and you love what you see! You're excited about new content and eager to provide input. In addition to Psion-level benefits, we want to thank you for contributing to the community by sending you a physical collectible item every 6 months. These could be original concept sketches, limited edition signed art prints, or other items. These rewards will be discussed with the community beforehand to ensure each item is something our backers will thoroughly enjoy. You will also be invited to a monthly developer meeting/Q+A session in Discord voice chat.

Fatal Core will be, and always will be, a free-to-play competitive online card game with no real-money purchases or micro-transactions. Of course, developers need a steady stream of revenue so that their game can continue to grow. Although players share this goal, any strategic victory is cheapened if the driving force behind it is money. A divide forms between high and low-spending players, and tensions often spill over into toxic behavior. We want to try something a little different!

To encourage collaboration between developers and players, Fatal Core will be interactively funded by the player community through channels like Patreon and scaled to community demand. This way, the community will take on a directing role!

The game will be publicly available from an early Alpha state, starting immediately. Players will decide which features, characters, or card sets to develop next. Rewards will be sent at regular intervals to every member of the community. When new funding goals are met, rewards will increase!

We are here to build a great collectible online card game not just for our players, but with them. Support us, and let your voice be heard!

Fatal Core players are able to earn currency in-game. They also receive a "stipend" of the most valuable currency every Wednesday and Friday. This benefit applies to all players, regardless of whether they are donors or not, and is already implemented in the game. Many goal tiers increase this amount, allowing every player to purchase more card packs!

Fatal Core will also publish a minimum of 5 new cards per
every 3 month period. Many goal tiers will increase the amount of new cards published!

Paradox Fragment Stipend: 65 -> 85
Cards in expansion queue: 5 ->7
