Roguebook will be available as an exclusive demo during the Steam Game Festival, from 3 to 9 February 2021.

In Roguebook, adventurers on an almost blank map. They progress by revealing new tiles they can move to, using an ingenious inkwell system. The Roguebook changes with each run, so the obstacles encountered are different from one game to the next. Same goes for the enemies you must defeat in tactical turn-based battle.
As in a traditional deckbuilder, players collect cards that they can use in the different challenges. You can upgrade the cards by inserting gems to earn unique bonuses. In addition to these cards, players can create dazzling team synergies using each hero’s specific abilities.
