Cybernetic Walrus announced that their game combining turn-based strategy and deck-building will launch in Early Access on 21 October 2021. Rise of Humanity will be available on Steam for €19.99 with two game modes: one with a narrative adventure and one that gives players three new challenges to complete every day.
”The game has a unique game mechanic and a lot of content that gives players up to hours of gameplay. In addition to that, we have a second game mode that creates three new daily missions so players can come back to practice, improve their strategy and reach a higher score every day. The scores are recorded on our leaderboards so by beating these missions, players can compete with one another and become the ultimate savior of humanity!” Mike Coeck, CEO of Cybernetic Walrus explained.
Rise of Humanity is a tactical turn-based card battler with RPG elements, stunning visuals, epic human-crushing robots, nasty robot puppies and cute exploding bunnies. Players move their characters around on a hexagonal play field using a stamina system. They are dealt a deck from a wide selection of cards they can use to attack enemies, lay traps and dodge incoming fire.
The Early Access game will include six missions with text dialogue (voice acting planned for the full game), as well as six level environments with increasing difficulty. Players will also come across levels with enemies hidden by fog of war. They can make use of the unlimited random side missions to improve the skills of their heroes and collect more cards for them. In the central mission hub, they can heal their heroes, buy them skills, or upgrade, merge and remove cards from their decks.
The full game is planned to launch in 2022. Two major releases are expected during Early Access, as well as regular updates with bug fixes and new content for the daily challenges developed together with the community.
