Battle against friends and conquer lands in Boomzap’s new simultaneous turn-based strategy game with no hotseat waiting.
February 11, 2016 – Fantasy world conquest game Legends of Callasia is available for Early Access on Steam! Inspired by classic games such as Civilization, Heroes of Might and Magic, and Risk, Southeast Asian developer Boomzap Entertainment has created a multiplayer strategy title that combines the depth of epic strategy games with simpler controls for shorter playtime sessions.
Legends of Callasia is a turn-based strategy game set in a fantasy world with board game-style maps and an innovative simultaneous multiplayer system that allows for thrilling games with up to 6 players that are playable in just a couple hours. Since December 2015, it has been in open beta testing and was quickly Greenlit on Steam earlier this year. Following an amazingly successful showing at the PAX South event in San Antonio, it is now available for Early Access.
The Early Access build is available now for free demo, allowing access to the first few missions of the single player campaign, as well as skirmish and multiplayer modes with the Hundred Kingdoms.
A one time purchase gives access to the rest of the game, including immediate access to Faeborne and Revenant in Multiplayer and Skirmish. The main content to be added as the Early Access continues will be more missions in the campaigns, more maps, and more characters.
Choose from a wide range of heroes from three factions – The Hundred Kingdoms, The Faeborne, and The Revenant – and conquer lands through single player campaigns, or battle against friends through online multiplayer in board game-style maps. Use bonus cards against your enemies or boost your armies and rule the world!

According to the developer, “Since our Open Beta, we have been gathering feedback from the community in order to improve the game. We’ll share regular updates about the development and welcome player suggestions for upcoming features. The Early Access build is essentially a free demo, and you can get full access to the rest of the game at a discount. The price will be $19.99 USD on official release.”
