Matrix Games on Thursday announced the release of
Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga
for the Mac. The sci-fi game is described by its developer as a blend of strategy and card gaming. It’s available now through the Matrix Games online store — a boxed version is expected to be released within a week.
Star Chamber is a turn-based online strategy board game in which players use special decks of cards that represent the abilities and assets of the alien races they’re playing as. You can go for a military victory, seek a cultural win, or use political subterfuge to gain the upper hand.
The game includes two single player campaigns, two starter decks, five boosters, five event passes and five exclusive promo cards.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.3 or later, G4/800MHz or faster, 128MB RAM, 250MB hard disk space and Internet access.
