Another fresh class for Hex Gambit, the Motivator is a very different support unit from Outwitters’ medic. He’s got a flexible passive ability called “Inspire” to help or hinder units standing beside him, plus a nifty “Shout” that can reactivate a spent character. He’s another of the 5 minions we’ll have playable for Early Access later this year.
Lots of big changes to the alpha this week. We’re messing with shorter play sessions, reducing the Victory Point goals from 20 to 10. In Hex Gambit terms, that’s 5 pillar taps or 10 minion kills to win (or a mix of both), completing a match in about 10 turns. At 1-2 minutes per turn for familiar users, that’s 10-20 minute matches for players that know what they’re doing. Pretty cool to fit a few matches into a single sitting. We’d love to hear your thoughts on that approach in the comments.
