Idle Champions Now in Early Access 

VICTORIA, BC – Sept 7, 2017 - Codename Entertainment is proud to announce that Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms is now available in Early Access on Steam. Gamers and Dungeons & Dragons fans around the world can begin their quest on PC and Mac today.

Idle Champions is an idle clicker game where players must assemble and organize a party of Champions and master the art of Formation Strategy. Players unlock new Champions, upgrade them to reveal special abilities, and collect epic gear. The key to success is learning how to combine each Champion's abilities to maximize damage or the amount of gold earned. Only then can the player defeat an onslaught of increasingly powerful monsters.

As players upgrade Champions, they choose specializations to increase their power further. Specializations need deep strategic thinking by the player as one specialization may increase the power of an ability but at the cost of another ability. Choices are permanent until the player completes each adventure.

Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms, the world's first idle clicker game set in the celebrated universe of the Forgotten Realms. The game is the award-winning studio's first licensed video game in partnership with Dungeons & Dragons.
