Laser Guided Games has announced the release of its new fantasy RTS Golem Gates today on PC. The game combines real-time strategy with card battler game mechanics, and includes a single-player story campaign alongside various co-op and competitive modes.
Set within a desolate land ravaged by ancient wars, Golem Gates sees players embark on a quest for redemption as The Harbinger. He of unknown origin is an outcast in a world shrouded in living darkness, cursed by a corrupting force known as the Unbound. When a voice reaches from the unknown, The Harbinger awakes to learn his purpose: to destroy the Golem Gates. Imbued with power over The Ash — nanites which permeate the atmosphere — The Harbinger manifests a legion of war machines known as golems which he commands. Lead him to his destiny; end the reign of the Unbound, crush the Golem Gates and reclaim life itself.
Golem Gates uniquely combines real-time strategy with card battler elements for quick, accessible gameplay that emphasizes visceral combat without sacrificing player-driven strategy. Players collect cards (called Glyphs) and strategically weave them into a deck, enabling full customization of their unit and support loadouts ahead of battle. The Harbinger is a ruthless commander, meaning battles are fast-paced and require on-the-fly tactical decisions to decimate the opposition. In addition to an epic single-player campaign and remixed mission objectives in the form of Trials, players can take their glyph decks online in various competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes.
“We’re beyond excited to launch Golem Gates today and introduce a game that we feel will resonate with a variety of strategy game fans,” said Matt Oelfke, Founder and Lead Developer at Laser Guided Games. “Our four months in Steam Early Access enabled us to shape this original concept into an approachable yet layered experience that anyone can learn. We’re excited to say hello to new players and show existing owners of Golem Gates just what we’ve accomplished thanks to their help.”
“From the beginning, we knew that we wanted Golem Gates to stand out,” said Josh Nizzi, Head of Hollow Earth Inc. “Together Laser Guided Games and Hollow Earth crafted a game that not only has unique gameplay mechanics but is set within a world steeped in mystery and lore. Players are in for some big surprises throughout the campaign. We look forward to hearing what they think!”
