CosmoPirates comedy deckbuilder roguelike game now has a Demo for Linux and Windows PC. Thanks to BlackMoon Design for their imaginative work in bringing players such innovative and engaging design. Available to try out on Steam.

I recently dove into the demo of CosmoPirates, a quirky mix of sci-fi and comedy, meshed into a deckbuilder roguelike experience. It’s crafted by the folks at BlackMoon Design, and let me tell you, it’s shaping up to be quite the adventure.

You’re out in space, and it’s not just any ordinary expanse. It’s also a vibrant, cartoonish cosmos, bursting with color and humor. Your mission? To build the mightiest deck ever and take down the CosmoPirates Overlord. But it’s not just about reaching the top; it’s about the hilarity and challenges you’ll face in CosmoPirates along the way.

The Linux demo gives us a look into the introductory map, but it’s just a taste of the vast universe they’re planning. Since the developer is eager for feedback, which is always a great sign.

Now, let’s talk about the mechanics. Each time you embark on a journey, you’re greeted with a fresh, procedurally-generated galaxy. It’s a smorgasbord of danger, bounty, and some really weird characters. You’re free to roam and take on quests in whatever order suits your fancy. Play it safe or go all out – the choice is yours, and your crew’s depending on your wit and strategy.

The real kicker? The cards, the CosmoPirates cards! They range from gadgets and weapons to gambits and strategies. Since every card can turn the tables in battle. You’ll find these treasures through exploration, purchases, and victories in combat. You’ve got to figure out the best combinations and synergies. And the creativity here is off the charts – would you ever think licking a battery for extra power or reading comic books for more action points would be a thing? In CosmoPirates, it certainly is.

But it’s not just about conquering battles. You’re on a grand quest to overthrow the pirate overlord and claim their throne. And here’s the twist – once you succeed, your next playthrough pits you against your previous character, decked out with all their acquired might.

CosmoPirates is promising to be a rollicking, strategic, and humor-filled ride through the cosmos. A lot of thought and creativity is going into making this not just a game, but an experience. Can’t wait to see how it evolves into the Linux and Windows PC launch. You can try the comedy deckbuilder roguelike and also Wishlist the game on Steam. Due to launch in Q2 2024.
