So I am really close to pledging but I would mainly be playing solo. I know there may be some solo variant but how well does the game scale? Would I have to control multiple characters? If so that seems like a lot to manage for one player.

they have indicated that you can Solo with one charachter,... that they have playtested it, but it will require a few tweeks to the basic game.

those changes will be available as a free download when the game comes out.

It's co op. So solo means play multiple characters. Solitaire would be one character play and given that the interaction of card combos between multiple heroes is a major aspect of the design, would probably not work well.

This game should not be difficult to play solo. In fact, with full control it may actually be much more tactical then in multiplayer.

It certainly would not require the sort of two brained thinking that soloing a standard wargame requires.

I just worry it may be overwhelming trying to manage two or more deck of cards.

I think 2 characters would be doable,.... more than that would be a bit cumbersome

There are only five cards per hero to make a choice with per round. Not very overwhelming.

That is what I was thinking. Do you think the game will be easier or harder with more characters? Does it scale depending?

As Michael says, there will be some lovely single-character rules released for free when the games out (or maybe before, who knows).

Works fine playing with 2+ on your own anyway, so could always do that for a month or two before the proper solo rules are put up ^^

It appears the way it scales is that 2 heroes will get to each do more turns before the Darkness activates, as the AP use will be less per hero turns than with more heroes (does that make sense?)...
