Roguebook, the roguelike deck builder developed by Abrakam Entertainment and co-designed by Richard Garfield, creator of Magic: The Gathering, will release on PC on June 17th, 2021, one week earlier than originally planned. To celebrate this news, NACON and Abrakam Entertainment release a new game trailer that introduces the deckbuilding mechanics.
Unlike other games in the genre, Roguebook features a unique gameplay philosophy: the “Tower Deck“. Instead of minimizing the number of cards in your deck, Roguebook encourages you to collect lots of them to unlock special talents for your heroes. Buy them from merchants, win fights against elites, and make offerings at vaults to collect as many as possible!
In strategic turn-based fights, you control a team of two heroes, each with their own dedicated cards. By choosing from the four heroes available, you can create powerful synergies: build an impenetrable defense against the most aggressive enemies or put everything into the attack to unleash devastating hits.
And with transmutation and gems that grant extra bonuses when added to your cards, there are even more deckbuilding options. Finally, the world of Roguebook is brimming with treasures and artifacts that will make you more powerful during your run.
