A century ago, The Infinity Engine that contains shards that can bend reality got destroyed and its fragments scattered throughout the world. The main focus of the game is rebuilding the engine and stopping the reality from collapsing, all the while fighting powerful foes and gathering forces as you grow in power.
As far as its looks go, Shards of Infinity is a much more serious-looking game than its competitors. The cards themselves feature outstanding artwork, are quite descriptive and easy to learn. To put it plainly, just by looking at the card gives you a good idea what it is for, The descriptions are comprehensive and concise, which is something many card deck-building games failed at. Finally, the animations, screen effects, and the overall atmosphere is fantastic.
Shards of Infinity PC and Mobile game is a serious take on the deck-building genre. Temple Gates Games is a serious company that pushed the card game genre to its limits, bringing it to the VR even. Where other card games might be considered suitable for younger audiences and easy to pick up, Shards of Infinity rules are much more immersive, complex, and ultimately more rewarding. Definitely for the deck aficionados!
