Roguebook Kickstarter (Linux, Mac, Windows PC)
The pages within are full of dangerous creatures and ancient legends. Exotic lands from the world of Faeria. The Roguebook itself is a sly entity with its own goals and desires. It is able to rewrite itself entirely. Always with the intent of tricking and fooling those who read it. Trapping them for eternity.
Your adventure begins by selecting two heroes. Since they will explore the Roguebook together. Each hero has their own special abilities and strategies. Combine different heroes for a completely different play experience.
The combat in Roguebook focuses on dual hero gameplay. Since each hero supports the other in different ways. From unleashing explosive combos to protecting the other from damage.
Core Battle System
- During Roguebook battles, the hero in front is the one normally exposed to damage.
- Whenever you a play a card belonging to the hero in the back row, your heroes will swap positions.
- If any hero reaches 0 health, they become inactive for the rest of the battle and have their cards removed from the deck. After the battle, that hero is healed back to a low amount of health and two Wound cards are added to your deck. A Wound is a card that’s not playable and will only act as a handicap. It is said that finding a helpful wandering monk can help you remedy these wounds…
- If both of your heroes reach 0 health in the same battle, your current run ends and the Roguebook wins.
