A strategy card roguelike called Shattered Heaven received a new trailer at the Future Game Show Summer Showcase Powered by Intel.
The fast-paced 30-second RPG cutscene intersperses gameplay with breaks to tell the story, showcasing 2D cardboard-style visuals drawn from dark fantasy and Lovecraftian horror.
The trailer is less than one minute long, but there’s just enough in it to give it all a frenzied energy, aided by suspenseful operatic music.
Released on Steam at the end of May, the single-player deck-building card game features RPG elements and a branching narrative that takes you through procedural dungeons. This means that in different dungeons you will be able to try out new deck combinations and make different story decisions as you reach different endings by defeating each boss. There is no lack of visual variety either, with over 50 different enemies and 10 unique bosses.
You start each run by building three starting decks, one for each hero you start the run with. You can then customize these decks by selecting new cards to suit the situation around you.
That’s not all you can do to power up your heroes, as defeating enemies brings treasure and allows you to climb further up the skill tree. If you’re feeling especially adventurous, you can increase the difficulty level and choose different modifiers to get even more loot. If you are more drawn to the story, you can adjust the pace to better enjoy the story.
