There are over 100 cards for each character for players to experiment with, and to combine with others. Other features are as follows:

  • Creative deck-building – collect combat cards that fit your unique playstyle and crush the enemy!
  • Unique hand-drawn eerie art style.
  • Dynamic dark fantasy world – travel through a procedurally generated, changing world in search for cards, supplies and glory!
  • Various biomes that harbour different monster classes – each biome affects the gameplay and offers a unique set of opponents!
  • Survival and resource management – you have limited opportunities to restore health or spent cards, so use them wisely!
  • Camp – strategically improve your base depending on your style of play.
  • Permadeath – unless you use the help of dark magic, then when you die, you die for good.
