    Tags: Obsidian Prince; Unleash the Giraffe

    Unleash the Giraffe has released Obsidian Prince on Steam's Early Access. Recruit your heroes, delve in to randomly generated dungeon built upon prefab rooms, put down some grass, expand your kingdom, and bury your dead! You can currently get this strategy/tactical CRPG for 20% off, which brings that price down to $11.99 through May 5th. Here's the brightly colored, voxelly trailer and some tid bits:


    RECRUIT THE HERO YOU WANT
    The heroes available for recruitment comes with different classes each with unique abilities and starting weapons. Choose between the melee focused warrior who charges and stuns or the kiting ranger using their crow as dot damage. (Many more classes are planned and will be implemented before release).

    All heroes comes with a backstory which develops as you play and reflects the feats you accomplish with them.

    SHAPE THE LIFE OF YOUR HERO
    Recruit young hopeful adventurers each with unique potentials and challenges based on their childhood.
    Decide their training and watch how it impacts their abilities.
    Continue forging their lifestories through adventures.
    Every adventure will change your hero and how you play it.​

    I really like the voxel graphics in this one. It reminds me of Cube World when it was a thing before the developer crashed and burned it on Steam with it's beta release. That said, I'm not quite sure how much the "card system" plays in the gameplay of this one.

    Deck-based roguelikes are becoming increasing popular. It seems so specific but there's tons of them now.

    Also, I should hope they plan on putting this on mobile. This looks better suited for that.

    Maybe after Early Access. Strong trailer, game looks like a turd from screenshots but the trailer makes it look genuinly fun. The lethality seems to be high.

    Gotta be careful with mobile crap... sometimes they keep piling ads even with full versions (fucking annoying).

    So Cube World is ghosted to the netherworld? Its gone?

    This trailer could have used less ADHD. Each screen must have had an average display time of .5 seconds.

    The first thing I think when I read 'Obsidian Prince'.

    That's how you sell things to the current gaming audience. We're practically oldfucks.
