Turn-based tactical RPG The Last Spell will launch in Early Access for PC via Steam on June 3 for $19.99, publisher The Arcade Crew and Gamera Game, and developer CCCP announced. The game will be available at a 10 percent-off discount price for the first two weeks after launch.
The Early Access version features the first part of the game, which consists of 12 consecutive in-game days and a boss fight. After that, players can try new runs with difficulty modifiers, which promises “a lot of replayability.” All of the core features are in place, and it is possible to reach the first ending.
In the coming months, new content will be released in the form of updates, including reworked mechanics, balancing changes, and more. Players will also have access to a beta branch and be able to offer feedback.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
What if Final Fantasy Tactics and Dynasty Warriors had an illegitimate daughter?
The Last Spell is a turn-based tactical RPG immersed in roguelite mechanics in which you lead a team of hardened heroes to defend the last bastion of humanity against hordes of monsters.
A Dark Fantasy Tactical RPG with Roguelite Elements
This is the end. War and a bunch of crazy mages provoked The Cataclysm. A mysterious mist filled with hellish monsters enveloped most of the world. They said that those who entered the mist were killed, driven mad, or even turned into monstrous abonimations themselves. Only a few Havens keep up the fight against the Hordes of bloodthirsty monsters that come out at night from this strange purple mist.
Days were quiet and peaceful: they could take time to organize themselves, heal their wounds and search the surroundings for anything useful. But the nights… The mist thickened and from their bowels unleashes hordes of mutated monsters, craving for blood and magic.
In this glorious mix of pixel art and dark fantasy setting, you lead a group of hardened warriors whose only purpose in life is to desperately defend the last of the mages while they try to cast The Last Spell, and banish all magic from this world. And maybe save us all. Maybe.
