Tamarak Trail, the upcoming turn-based dice-oriented deck-building roguelike from Yarrow Games and Versus Evil, has received an all new lore blog detailing the backstory of its three playable heroes ahead of its launch later this year on Switch.

This latest blog post tells the tail of Malcolm the Tracker, Hale the Detective, and Elysia the Magician. Malcolm is a legendary big game hunter known for taking down the largest, most ferocious beasts preying upon the land, Hale a youthful upstart determined to find their lost twin who disappeared somewhere along the Tamarak Trail, and Elysia a talented practitioner of the dark arts on a quest to avenge her parents following their murder by a sorcerer. All three found their way to the enigmatic order known as the Eye of the Sturgeon, where they now embark on an expedition further and deeper down the shadowy forest passage than anyone has dared venture before.

As a member of a secret society named the Eye of the Sturgeon, it’s up to you to piece together the mystery of a decaying earth, hunt down the source of this corruption and put a stop to it at all costs. Embarking on this adventure, you can choose one of three characters; The Magician, the Tracker or the Detective, each with their own unique abilities and traits. Depending on your preferred playstyle, the character’s different skills and attributes allow you to craft a unique strategy for your character as they navigate the ominous trail. Procedurally-generated paths create a myriad of possibilities where you can encounter events, monsters, campsites, treasure and more. Every new discovery reveals new bonuses and strategies to explore.

To combat the monsters and nefarious foes you’ll encounter, you’ll have to be tactical in your dice-building, as each face could mean the difference between victory or defeat. Different dice sides can be used to attack directly, apply buffs and debuffs, inflict damage over time, defend yourself, to “flip” them to another side for combo awesomeness and much more. You can even apply “dice cores” to secure passive abilities. You’re given direct control of your dice rolls, and getting them to smack together allows you to create killer combo attacks. In true deck-builder fashion, dice faces can be customized with more abilities after each victory, adding new attacks, defenses and combinations to take forward into future battles.
