Reveal: The Races!

Hey! As promised last week, I’m happy to reveal to you the races in Cosmic Brawl.

Three Races

First things first! There are just 3 races in Cosmic Brawl 😯

Omni

Sol

Naarg


Read on for details…

Omni

Omni is a race of sentient robots, the most technologically advanced race in the game. They’re known for being powerful and destructive. Their origin is unknown, but some speculate that they’re descended from robots abandoned in space by humans.


Sol

Sol consists of humans and animals from the Sol system (present day solar system). Their technology is in between the other two races. They’re known for being clever, and being able to adapt and survive against odds.


Naarg

Naarg is a race of human-sized insectoid aliens. They’re native to the Alpha Gemini star system where our game takes place. They don’t have any technology or weapons, but make up for that by attacking in overwhelming numbers.


Coming Next Week…

Are… you… readyyyyy??! Next Tuesday, we’ll post the gameplay demo video!! Mark your calendars and keep an eye out for my email 🙂

Got an opinion or question about the races? Post a comment, it’s easy (no registration, etc).

Bruh!!! Epic races. Are 3 races enough though, will it get boring? Also are you gonna do Kickstarter like I suggested a month back? Cash is burning a hole in my pocket haha

Love the battle hippo. Will there be other non-human Sol cards?

AGree there should be more non-human Sol cards.

The description says humans and animals, which is plural, so based on what they said I’d highly imagine they are going to feature many other animals in the Sol race.

David Wagner

I agree! More species in the race would certainly give it a bit more depth! More options as far as deck types!

LeadTheWay
Guest

Perhaps as a nod to Hitchhikers Guide, have Dolphins as one of the Sol species lol

Yo these races are sweet!!!!! Will there be neutral cards also?

Is this roughly:
Omni – Control
Sol – Midrange
Naarg – Aggro

Or will there be more diversity between the races? I’m really looking forward to this game and hope it isn’t that linear smile

Disclaimer: this is a legit curiosity question, not a complaint. I am very much looking forward to this game!

Can’t wait to see the gameplay video and hear your ideas about how the game mechanics will work. Hoping is has the strategic depth of say, Gwent or Shadow Era.

The goofy name with the badass character design (they look so try hard but it’s amazing) very excited to play this game, happy the devs are transparent as well. Communication can be everything.

Seth
Guest

When you mention the game taking place in the Naarg galaxy, does that mean there will be some kind of campaign/story mode and or lore to the game?

Is there some kind of significance to that info?

Curiosity Question: Will more races be added after release?

Milkman711
Guest

This actually really awesome! Great diversity of archetypes but not too generic. Can’t wait to see how archetypes play in thematically (hippo beatdown?)

Tony Gonzalez
Guest
Tony Gonzalez

This kinda reminds me of the old school RTS game StarCraft. lol. the line up that is. this is going to be awesome! I can’t wait to play. remember if you need a beta tester, IM YOUR GUY! lol

Grady
Guest

I’m a little worried that the sol being a balanced class in between the other 2 classes will be either op or really underpowered.

TheZinogre
Guest

So are the levels of technology represented in game? Like is technology a type of card like spells in other card games and depending on which race you have that many tech cards?

Sombra
Guest
Sombra

I really want to play the purple spider lady thing. Will you guys implement the idea like adding sliver or gold portrait on the characters after you win like 500 games?

Looks cool.

dakota

this super awesome. im so HYPED for this game and i love that its f2p cant w8 to try it

Vic
Guest

Looks good so far! I’m hoping when you guys release, there is a strong story aspect to go along with the game (like Hearthstone Adventures, but even more elaborated on since there is no equivalent to WoW for this game.) A good story would allow you to add other races into the mix as later expansions are released smile Keep up the good work!

The Ram

i think 3 races are fine for starters, but I after reading the comments I thought of a 4th race that you could add in the future. This race should be like a gaseous type race almost transparent or very bright of different colors kinda like a star and you could call them the Nova. (btw i suggested nova strike as the card game name and i kinda just want to get my idea in the game :))

Maile

Seems it would be easy enough to add additional races down the line as they would just be different species from different planets, galaxies, solar systems, whatever–like Star Wars. You’d just have to find a good angle for them and good game play mechanics, differentiation and balance.

Careful with the backgrounds of the cards. If they are too flashy it can take away from the cards.

Definitely glad I watched your ad on YouTube and followed through. You guys have done a great job of keeping community involved and I continue being excited for release week to week. Excited to see more of the Naarg artwork, looks really fascinating.

Chris House

This looks awesome! I love the races! Will you be able to create decks from all 3 of them, like a quasi-zoo deck? (sorry if this has been asked/answered)

It looks great so far, guys! Keep up the good work!

Alex
Guest

The thing I want that I feel would make everything much more active, is something similar to clash royale where every few weeks/months a new card will be added instead of expansions every few months.
My 2 cents – GenericGuyOnTheInternet34

This seems like a great game, and is rolling out quite nicely. I was thinking it would be great if a lore based mode was added, perhaps based on a war between them, or them uniting against a greater threat. I was curious whether these races apply in the game as card types, or playable hero types (where you could be a race’s leader and play that race’s cards)? Also, do you have some sort of planned release time, or are you going to wait and see if the community enjoys it? Anyway, can’t wait for the gameplay demo next week! Keep up the good work!

For me the naarg looks the coolest but it seems i would play a lot of sol

Conrad
Guest

I recommend adding “lesser races” to the mix, sort of like neutral cards that have less synergy, but more versatility. I’d love to see your ideas for those. It would expand the gameplay as well as the lore behind it.

The game so far looks great btw!

I’ve always been a big fan of the weird class, it seems that the Naarg will be a zoo type class? The Sol seems to be maybe a sort of buff deck, and the Omni without doubt will have some sort of mage class, I am very excited to see how this game will improve in the next 6-8 months. Quick question, will there be a sort of Ritual concept or Demon deck? Like the Warlock in hearthstone or Black Ritual in MTG, or maybe the blue cards in Yugioh? I’ve always been a big fan of these type of decks, and I know that you said there would be less rng, but will there be a card or deck that is rng? Like renounce darkness from hearthstone or maybe wheel of fortune in mtg? Like maybe there could be a game mode for these Chaotic decks, where everything is… Read more »
