26 MAY 2020 – Greedy Wolf Studio today launch card-battling mythical adventure “Cardnarok: Raid With Gods” into Steam Early Access with a brand new trailer. Create a team of mythological legends, devise the perfect deck, and conquer an unforeseen evil in this epic Slay the Spire-like adventure.
With inspiration drawn from both physical tabletop games and card battlers, Cardnarok: Raid With Gods is a deckbuilding roguelite card game in which you discover, collect and harness the power of the Gods to battle your way to victory.
Designed by an ex-Blizzard employee of six years, Cardnarok pulls inspiration from legends of the genre including Slay the Spire, setting you off on procedurally generated encounters with not one, but three heroes of your choice at a time. Swap between them mid-battle to change the effects of your cards, and unleash devastating combinations on your foes.
Fill your deck with ‘Divine cards’ that uniquely alter their effect to reflect the God or Goddess on your front row. With these dynamically shifting cards, you’ll be ready to change and adapt your battle strategy in the middle of battle, no matter what the enemy throws at you. Send a thunderbolt for direct damage with Zeus, heal to your wounded teammates with Aphrodite’s touch, or defend your team with the shield of Ares.
Players can currently recruit a team of the most powerful beings from Greek and Egyptian fables, but Greedy Wolf look to recruit deities from all the greatest stories from a wide range of cultures, including Chinese, Norse, Hindu, and Japanese mythological giants.
Greedy Wolf Founder Frank Chang said:
“In an era where card games are so saturated in the market, we hope to develop original gameplay that utilizes a brand new and robust combat system capable of creating expandable combinations and high replayability.
We genuinely believe that we have created something special and unique that players who love the card battler genre should definitely pick up and give a try.”
Cardnarok: Raid With Gods launches into Early Access on May 26th onto PC via Steam.
About Cardnarok: Raid With Gods
Cardnarok: Raid with Gods is a mind-twisting deckbuilding rogue-like card game where players recruit a team of 3 mythological Gods/Goddesses to battle legendary monsters.
As you enlist more deities to your quest, it’s time to optimize your deck and heroes to create an epic force of devastating combos. Every Expedition is randomly-generated, so adaption and strategy are key.
– Harness the power of the Gods – Recruit Gods and Goddesses from the greatest stories ever told. Meet Hermes, Zeus, Athena, Anubis, Isis, and more – each with their own unique active and passive abilities.
– Play as not one, but three heroes at once – A never-before-seen feature in a card battle game! When you move a deity to the front row, he/she will automatically perform a special move. These moves include abilities that heal teammates, make an extra attack, or even provide beneficial effects such as drawing an additional card or regaining action points!
– Master their ‘Divine Powers’ – Special ‘Divine Cards’ morph and change based on the deity currently leading the charge.
– Embark on a unique adventure, every time – Move around a randomly generated tabletop map to gather coins, healing potions, and new heroes to join your party!
