The Harbinger Saga ships
Matrix Games today announced that Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga is now available for Mac OS X. The new Mac game title has been recognized as the Best Independent Game of 2005 by Computer Games Magazine. Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga is a sci-fi themed experience that "melds card and strategy gaming into a whole new genre." Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga features a unique set of single player campaigns along with enhanced graphics, an improved user interface, new maps, new cards, new sound effects, four player games, a tournament drafting system, and many minor adjustments to improve the game. The digital download is now available, while a boxed version for Mac users will be available for sale within a week, according to the company. The company notes that the installation process as well as the online play require an internet connection. It runs on Mac OS X 10.3 or later and is available for $30.
Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga contains two single player campaigns, two starter decks (or six booster packs), five Atok Incident boosters, five event passes, and five exclusive promo cards only available when purchased from Matrix Games. In addition, the new Atok Incident expansion, which debuts along with The Harbinger Saga, contains over 300 brand new cards to further increase the number of strategies in the already robust Star Chamber catalog.
