We are glad to announce the upcoming Steam release of Deck of Ashes — the hardcore story-driven RPG with a card-based tactical combat system!
After two years in development, the game by the Russian studio AY Games is scheduled for full release on June 9 of 2020 for PC (via Steam). The game is set in the cursed grim world overrun by the terrifying spawns of death. Collect, mix, and create the unique Ash cards to emerge victorious in the dangerous battles and to defeat these evil creatures.
Deck of Ashes has been in Steam Early Access since April – it is increasingly popular among the card battler fans and the game has received hugely positive feedback!
The release version of the game brings you many improvements including:
- A new character with a new story campaign and three card archetypes
- The epilogue to conclude the game story
- Full Russian localization.
The special “Day one Edition” will be available for only two weeks following the release on June 9. This edition comes with digital bonuses such as the expanded art book, HD wallpapers, all character skins, and the personal gratitude from the dev team!
“Deck of Ashes has been in development for over two years and since we’ve gone into the early access we’ve been improving it on a monthly basis with new content – new characters, new monsters, new events and game balance fixes,” said Oleg Vasilev, CEO of AY Games. “We’re sincerely grateful for all the support, feedback and suggestions we received from players and we’ve implemented some of these ideas into the Deck of Ashes. It would be much more difficult to work on this game without your support. Now our team is in the home stretch and we hope that the players will soon enjoy the complete story of our fantasy world!”
About Deck of Ashes:
Deck of Ashes is a hardcore story-driven RPG with a procedurally-generated game world and the card-based tactical combat system. The player takes the role of one of four antiheroes and he finds and creates new cards in order to collect the powerful deck of cards and to defeat enemies in the turn-based tactical battles.
Every character’s story is unique so there are four separate story campaigns and starting each of these campaigns generates a new game world! It is up to you do decide where to go, which enemy to fight next, and what resources to collect to create cards. There are more than 100 cards in the game and players can mix them to create the unique decks and combat styles!
- The eerie world of dark fantasy. All characters, monsters, and locations are hand-drawn!
- Four main characters – four story campaigns.
- Incredibly replayable! Every new game will be unique due to the procedurally generated game world.
- The insanely huge number of card combinations. Collect and create cards to fit your play-style.
- Biomes with various monsters: each biome affects the gameplay differently and inhabited by unique foes!
- Death is permanent in the finest tradition of a roguelike genre. Once dead you’re dead forever unless… you use the Black magic.
Before the fateful event known as the Ash Curse, the Rogues had been the most dangerous gang out there. The whole world despised them and they were not hesitating to return the favor.
They had been relentlessly killing and plundering with no mercy to the rich nor to the poor. Spoiled by their luck, gold, and impunity they quickly delved into the deep of madness. Then the Rogues wished to obtain the most powerful artifact – the Ash Box. Their search brought them to the Valley of Death. However, once they were so close to the artifact no one agreed to share it with others! One of the Rogues managed to grab the box but it slipped out his hands and shattered on the floor. The cloud of Ash raised to the skies poisoning and spoiling every living thing on the face of the world. Each of the Rouges is yet to pay the biggest price for their ignorance though. As the whole world suffers greatly under the Ash Curse – only the Rogues can break it…
