“[A] card-based, strategy rpg, with roguelite elements. Recruit and build up your party of heroes and [travel] the [l]and, to get rid of the evil […].”
Even though you don’t directly control your heroes in “Deck Quest: Jam Edition”, your own influence on their success is surprisingly high! I’ll try to explain it: First, you choose a character from four classes (knight, mage, priest or thief) and you decide if you want to start with ten or up to twenty event cards. These event cards are important, because they will lead your hero group to a certain point of the game. A card with a white skull for example represents a rather easy fight, a card with a jug of beer means a visit in the pub (where you can recruit another hero by the way), a card with a treasure chest stands for exactly that and so on.
But these events don’t just happen completely random. Instead you have to choose between three randomly picked event cards. One of them is always hidden and can be unlocked by paying ten coins… New event cards can be bought via the gacha machine in the downer right corner for 25 coins. So, if you want to succeed in that game, you’ll have to think strategically. Fight against monsters to get new coins, get stronger, recruit new heroes and try to beat the end boss of each world to proceed! All in all, “Deck Quest: Jam Edition” is an excellent jam entry with a high replayability. So try it out for yourself. >>PLAY
