All while leading them through a strange post-apocalyptic labyrinth. Gears its pixel art nude dudes for battle on finally.
Due to remain in Early Access for “no more than a year, but not 1-2 months either.” Along with support for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Which is impressive.

Trapped in a massive maze like complex with seemingly endless compartments. A frail group of humans robbed of both their memories and clothes band together for survival. However, in Despot’s Game: Dystopian Army Builder these unfortunate souls aren’t alone together. Since they must beat back killer robots, man eating cabbages, and vicious hellhounds. Also other forces of destruction led by the nefarious d’Spot who runs the show.

These poor souls will need more than just their birthday suits if they want to live. Equip the unarmed masses with a variety of killing implements in Despot’s Game: Dystopian Army Builder. Doing so with flesh ripping chainsaws and laser swords to crazy apparatuses. This includes stale pretzel throwers and handy paddle balls. Even damage soaking refrigerators.

A well balanced army is necessary to forge the longest run. The more unique weapons from the same class it holds. Then the more power ups they unlock. Diversify the cultist class to grant them the “Call of Cthulhu”. All due to unleash greater damage and tricksters to dodge attacks with ease. Purchase mutations to provide fighters with thicker skin. This also helps obtain more bonus mana and increase attack speed.

Party members all fight on their own in Despot’s Game: Dystopian Army Builder. All using their skills to turn the tide so long as they’re well-fed and positioned. Then it’s up to a cunning strategist to lead this motley crue while arranging meatbags humans for battle. Mages sporting a rabbit in a hat and spirit masks can deal damage from afar. So just like shooters with their crossbows and plasma guns. Fighters will take the front lines with claws and Rocky’s boxing gloves. All due to beat enemies while tanks protect units with tower shields and periodic tables.

Fret not, as new meat for the grinder is always available. And doing so for the cheap price of two tokens. This can also double as food source for a hungry army if desperate times call it. And when the end seems near… It’s time to face the ultimate challenge. The deadly end game armies of other players!

From the Studio:

“We can’t wait to see the crazy battles commanders will get into during Early Access,” said Nikolay Kuznetsov, Game Creator, Konfa Games. “From footballers knocking out some zombies and Excalibur swords cutting into robots. Anything is possible in Despot’s Game: Dystopian Army Builder. We’re ready for the chaos to begin!”

Despot’s Game: Dystopian Army Builder is available now on Steam and Humble Store. All priced at $14.99 USD / EUR €14.99. Including support for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC.
