Tactical deckbuilder Toads of the Bayou announced for PCDue out in 2024.
Publisher Fireshine Games and developer La Grange have announced Toads of the Bayou, a roguelike deckbuilder / turn-based strategy RPG coming to PC via Steam in 2024.
“Toads of the Bayou is about combining the southern gothic spookiness and the sweet taste of cartoon memories, into our own take on the turn-based tactical genre,” said La Grange game designer Alexandre Clement in a press release. “The goal for us was to allow the player to establish their place in this cursed environment, and make them appreciate how hard they fought and what they stood for. Nothing is ever granted in the Bayou, and thriving against the Baron’s evil forces is a real achievement.”
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Baron Samedi, a spirit of the dead, has tricked you and your group of wandering toads who were looking for a place to settle and thrive, by trapping them in the cursed bayou and forcing them to face the evil that inhabits it. Determined to overcome the dreadful Baron Samedi, the toads must band together to defeat his waves of minions and build a settlement within the bayou.
