Ash of Gods: The Way is releasing on the Switch today, giving players that chance to dive into this mixture of tactical turn-based battles and deck-building card game. The game has already won awards for Best Art at the Games Gathering Conference and Best PC Game at the Indie Cup. Ash of Gods: The Way will be available on the Nintendo eShop for $24.99 / €24.99 / £20.99, with a launch discount of 10%.
In the battle-worn world of tactical turn-based card game Ash of Gods: The Way, players will build decks of warriors, equipment and spells from four different factions. Only then can they master The Way — a brutal card game guarded by the enemy’s aristocracy and used to hone their fiercest commanders in the air of warfare.
Finn is a young man who experienced the terror of the enemy’s tactics firsthand when they destroyed his home and ruined his family. Now, many years later, he is the only one who can protect his country from witnessing the same tragedy once more by throwing himself into the lion’s den.
In a game of The Way, players must deploy a warrior and a support card before sending their units towards the enemy’s commander on the battlefield. As is often the case in war, things don’t always go as planned. Players must think on their feet and change up their deck regularly to survive as rules change from battle to battle, and sometimes in the middle of a fight.
The game also offers an interactive story featuring multiple endings and fully voice-acted cutscenes and dialogue. The choices that players make both on and off the battlefield can have lasting consequences that just might change the course of history — for better or worse.
