A literal army of darkness
Developer Konfa Games and publisher tinyBuild have announced that Despot’s Game: Dystopian Army Builder is coming to Switch sometime in Summer 2022. This will mark the game’s jump from Early Access on Steam to Version 1.0, and pricing should be somewhere around $15.
Despot’s Game is a roguelike tactical auto-battler where commanders build their squad of puny humans into a legion of wizards, ninjas, and dozens of other heroes while leading them through a strange post-apocalyptic labyrinth.
Equip the unarmed masses with one of 50 weapons ranging from conventional swords and guns to ridiculous apparatuses like stale pretzels throwers, magical rabbits-in-a-hat, and damage-soaking refrigerators. Make use of 10 human classes including throwers, mages, and cultists, building up their ranks and diversifying armaments to unlock power-ups that aid in battles.
You can see more details about Despot’s Game via the press release below.
Keep the ranks well-fed and deploy them strategically for a better chance at survival. While mages and shooters provide support with long-range attacks, fighters sporting Rocky’s iconic boxing gloves and tanks with protective periodic tables should take the front lines for hands-on combat and protection.
Stack mutations to strengthen forces, like invoking “Glory to Satan” to sacrifice a newcomer and summon an eldritch tentacle that deals massive damage to foes. Smash through 60 types of monsters with destructive abilities to survive these chaotic killing games. From man-eating cabbages and killer robots to necromancers joined by vicious giant skeletons ready to drop humans into black portals, many perils await.
