With two weeks before its launch on PC, Roguebook – the roguelike deckbuilder developed by Abrakam Entertainment and co-designed by Richard Garfield, creator of Magic: The GatheringTM – is unveiling more about the combat mechanics. Only the finest strategists will manage to defeat the evil entity hidden within Roguebook’s pages! Check out the trailer below to see how combat works in this thrilling new deckbuilder, along with some additional info!
In Roguebook, you choose a team of two heroes from a selection of four available. Sharra cuts down enemies with power, Sorocco blocks enemy attacks with resolve, Aurora wields magic with talent, and Seifer unleashes his rage against those unfortunate enough to attack him.
Each hero has their own unique cards. Players will need to develop strategies and play their cards at the best moment and in the right order to create devastating combos. At the start of each turn, players know what the enemy attacks will be. Sometimes the best defence is attack, but sometimes it’s wiser to focus on defence to avoid a crushing defeat.
In true roguelike fashion, you must start again from the beginning after a defeat. But you become more powerful with each run thanks to the new cards and skills you have unlocked. It’s by starting again and again that players can fight their way through a bestiary that includes over 50 different enemies.
