The goal of the game is to reduce your opponent’s health to zero, using a combination of attack, defense and buff cards (or in multiplayer games, to defeat the enemy on the left, while defending from the opponent on the right side.) Booster Packs are available to customize the decks.
Starter Decks are $19.99. Booster Packs are $3.99. The Intro Pack which include both a Tech and Storm Starter Deck, is $29.99.
Playfusion was formed over two years ago by a group that included the management team of the company that developed Runescape, an online game with over 250 million players. Strategic investors have included Nexon, Japan’s leading developer and publisher of online games, and toy company Tomy, which is assisting with distribution in multiple markets. It sees itself as operating in the “toys-to-life” category, which includes Skylander and the late Disney Infinity. But unlike those two lines, Lightseekers includes a TCG that can be played with or without the app, and figures as well. “We're really a technology company and technology platform company that happen to build a really amazing trading card game,” Wilkov told ICv2.
Playfusion is beginning direct-to-retailer distribution in the hobby games channel, focusing primarily on stores in the Northeast leading up to the first competitive play tournament at PAX Unplugged in Philadelphia in November. The products were launched in Toys R Us this summer.
