This week, we introduced Waldo to the greatest piece of technology in the last 20 years that fits inside our pocket: the cell phone, simultaneously introducing him to the internet in the process, as well. We made sure to steer him clear of any comments sections so he didn’t pop a blood vessel, and instead showed him a 10 hour video of a fireplace. He’s on his 9th hour and hasn’t moved an inch. We’ll remember this the next time he wants to set our Wyrdscapes aflame (again).
So while he’s been taken out of commission thanks to a looping holiday video, let’s take a look at the upcoming Malifaux Third Edition: Crew Builder app!
In just a few weeks, we will be launching the app to both the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store for the low cost of absolutely free. You won’t need to pay for cards or any additional functionality. Everyone who has either an Android or Apple device will be have full access to every feature and stat card on the app without having to pay a dime. And if you don’t have a mobile device, don’t worry. We’ll be coming out with a web version later this year.
With the Crew Builder app, you’ll be able to build a Crew (duh), share your Crew with your friends, check out every Stat Card in the game, track games via either local or network connections, read the Wyrd news, listen to Breachside Broadcast as you’re playing, and more.
After you’ve built your Crew and are ready to face an opponent, you’ll be able to generate Strategies and Schemes, keep track of your Crew information (everything from Health, Conditions, Tokens, Victory Points, and more) while also seeing your opponent’s tracked information, as well. You’ll also have access to Reference card information as you’re playing – just in case you want to read an Upgrade or a model’s card that you haven’t summoned that you might not have dished out just yet.
This app originally started as a labor of love from one of our community members, DZ Liergaard. They’ve gone the extra mile in adding some polish and working with us directly to make the app the best it can be. There are a ton of great features in this app, and we can’t wait for our community to get their hands on it.
If you can’t wait a few weeks and need to have the app now, we have more news: we are currently looking for beta testers to put the app to the test. If you are interested in helping us out with ironing out the last few wrinkles, sign up here.
That’s it from us this week. We’ll have more news on the app soon!
