Publisher LTG and developer Undead Fox are working on Dark Lord, a card-based roguelike RPG for the PC. The game will be part of Steam Next Fest later this month.
You play as the titular Dark Lord, a ruthless leader determined to cling to power no matter what. You’re currently the ruler of a vast underworld, but that doesn’t mean your subjects will be subservient. Everyone else is just as selfish as you are and will backstab you in a second if it means they gain an advantage. Use your cards to plot your moves and stab them first! Since your decisions affect the progression of the story, each playthough is different.
“This game challenges players to test their strategic skills and develop a realm fraught with decisions and consequences,” says Undead Fox. “Players will navigate a world of shady advisors, political intrigues, and unexpected plot twists. Balancing between managing people with an iron fist and surviving through cunning means, they will need to strengthen their boundaries and decide how to rule their dark kingdom.”
Strategic role-playing game with roguelike elements. Embark on an adventure, cultivate territories, manage cunning advisors, mastermind devious conspiracies, and tackle quests.
Dark humor. Go on hilariously twisted quests and face challenges with a wicked grin!
Player-driven storyline. Choices have consequences, dictating the twists and turns of the narrative allowing you to craft a unique story.
Shady advisors and political intrigues. Find the balance between military might and politics. Manage advisors, but beware, as they may engage in their own treacherous game.
Hand-crafted graphics. The hand-crafted visuals of the game plunge you deep into the ambiance of a brooding kingdom.
Built for the Community. Players will be able to create their own stories and share them while playing and learn the plots made by their friends as well as people from all over the world
Undead Fox won’t say when Dark Lord will be officially released, but there is a demo out as of now. Get it on the game’s Steam page.
