A card game of pixellated fleet battles

Pixel Fleet is a quick deck-building game of warring pixellated spaceships fighting for Wealth and Glory in a dangerous, ever-shifting asteroid field. Each turn, every player's automated fabricators churn out a random selection of starships and upgrade modules, which are quickly assigned to the changing Zones of the Asteroid Field.

Pixel Fleet is a deck-building card game that places emphasis on hand and deck management. Each turn, ships and module cards must be assigned to the accessible Zones of the Asteroid Field, which change every turn. Once all ships have been assigned, the fastest ships act first, attacking their enemies for Glory or mining the asteroids for wealth and resources. Whoever has the most Glory when the game ends wins!

Destroyed ships become valuable scrap, but a player may want to keep less useful cards in their scrapyard so they don't re-enter their deck. The temptation to spend your scrap is high, with new cards being auctioned from the Black Market every turn.

Pixel Fleet is currently in late-stage development and playtesting.
