A Long Way Down is a new deck building roguelite RPG for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Thanks to developer Seenapsis Studio. The games is shaping up to release on Steam next month.
The game started in early 2018. While the game was aiming for a Spring 2019 release. That has now changed, due to release on Early Access on January 16th, 2020. As you dive into a dark and tormented world. And also challenge the sneaky master of the dungeon.
You collect cards, upgrade your stuff and maybe even escape the maze. So the question remains, will you make smart choices? Successfully convincing your companions in misfortune?
A Long Way Down is a mashup between an RPG roguelite and a deck building game. Since all game levels are generated procedurally. So this will give you a huge replay value. Including new choices and options on every play through. Fights are based on deck building games. While allowing you to make tactical choices. Taking desperate fights into epic wins.
A Long Way Down – Announcement Trailer
The game comes with a roguelite oriented gameplay felt in its difficulty. Thanks to the random level generation. But also in the way that you create your own path through this journey. A long way down also gives you the chance of using items that will impact your journey. So if you are you’re a mage. Use the staff instead of the sword.
But in case this is too vanilla for you. Just craft something more epic. As you come across characters that can become powerful friends or merciful foes.
Mental sanity will also be a big deal. Will you choose virtuous actions or more sinful manners? Your moral choices will influence your perception of the dungeon. Including how to appreciate (or suffer from) in the journey.
