“When Valve pushes into a new genre, it makes a mark”

PC GAMER (US) - - WELCOME -

Sorry, Half-Life fans, Valve’s next game is not Episode 3. Still, Ar­ti­fact is no less ex­cit­ing. When Valve pushes into a new genre, it makes a mark— whether that’s rein­vent­ing the shooter, puz­zle game, or the con­cept of shop­ping. Ar­ti­fact rein­vents what it means to be a dig­i­tal card game. This is­sue cel­e­brates rein­ven­tion. In the sec­ond half of our His­tory of Strat­egy fea­ture, we ex­plore how turn-based tac­tics re­vi­tal­ized the genre, and cel­e­brate the 20th birth­day of Thief. En­joy!
