Deep Sky Derelicts, a card-based sci-fi dungeon crawler that takes just a few main cues from Darkest Dungeon, is about able to lumber out of early entry and into the identified photo voltaic system. It’ll launch on Steam September 26.
It’s a game that oozes fashion – a definite line artwork and watercolor look that’s harking back to Brandon Graham’s ‘Prophet’ collection of comics, type of the way in which Darkest Dungeon was closely impressed by Mike Mignola’s Hellboy art work.
The motion has shifted from a Lovecraftian manor to an infested derelict alien freighter. A procedural map fills in as you discover, and fight is dealt with with card system. Befitting the science fiction setting, you’ll be able to equip your crew of rogues with high-tech gear you both scavenge or purchase.
This gear determines the deck of playing cards you carry with you into every encounter, much like the way it’s dealt with in Card Hunter and Guild of Dungeoneering. However, Deep Sky Derelict’s enemies are fairly a bit darker, creepier, and extra menacing than the cheery cardboard standees and kooky doodles of these games.
Here’s the early entry launch trailer from final 12 months. I’m actually having fun with the soundtrack:
As talked about above, Deep Sky Derelicts will formally launch September 26. You can head to the Steam page now for those who’d prefer to test it out in early entry kind proper now.
