About

Deck of Ashes is a hardcore story-driven RPG with a procedurally-generated game world and the card-based tactical combat system. The player takes the role of one of four antiheros and he finds and creates new cards in order to collect the powerful deck of cards and to defeat enemies in the turn-based tactical battles.

Every character’s story is unique so there are four separate story campaigns and starting each of these campaigns generates a new game world! It is up to you do decide where to go, which enemy to fight next and what resources to collect to create cards. There are more than 100 cards in the game and players can mix them to create the unique decks and combat styles!

Key Features

  • The eerie world of dark fantasy. All character, monsters and locations are hand-drawn!
  • Four main characters—four story campaigns.
  • Incredibly replayable! Every new game will be unique due to the procedurally generated game world.
  • Insanely huge number of card combinations. Collect and create cards to fit your play-style.
  • Biomes with various monsters: each biome affects the gameplay differently and inhabited by unique foes!
  • The death is permanent in the finest tradition of a roguelike genre. Once dead you’re dead forever unless… you use the Black magic
