Overrogue is a new card deck-building roguelite from KEMCO – TheXboxHub
KEMCO are well known in these parts for creating some lovely old-school fantasy adventures. In fact, over the years they’ve thrown out a host of those exact games to Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Switch. Today though they are going for something a little different – Overrogue is a card deck-builder which mixes in some roguelite action.
Don’t get worries, from what we’ve seen and played this is a typical KEMCO experience; it’s just they are trying to infuse something slightly different into the experience as a whole.
Having features on the Summer Game Fest Demo scene, it’s now time for the full game to rock up onto Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC. Priced at £12.49, Overrogue is a game in which you are thrust into the underworld; a realm in which many creatures roam. It’s also a place that is looking for its next Overlord. Step forward.
In Overrogue you’ll be tasked with making your way through a number of labyrinths, all dungeon-styled and ready for reaping. It’s here where you’ll get to utilise a number of card decks, working some roguelite elements in hope of building up the deck you need for success. There are more than 300 cards in place and upwards of 150 drops of treasure to enjoy, and so the combinations that are allowed in Overrogue are seemingly plentiful.
The only real question that awaits is whether or not you have what it takes to conquer the labyrinths and become the Overlord you’ve always thought of yourself as.
