Developer Abrakam Entertainment’s roguelike deckbuilding title Roguebook will now release a full week earlier than previously announced. The game, which has been co-designed by creator of Magic: the Gathering Richard Garfield will now launch on June 17 for PC.
Roguebook sets itself apart from other roguelike deckbuilders by actually emphasizing amassing more cards. The more cards you collect from merchants and tackling foes, the more unique talents you unlock for your heroes, which grants you a significantly better chance against elites and other tough showdowns. Couple this focus on card collection with transmutations and gems that can be added to them to enhance their power and it’s clear that Roguebook is trying to redefine the genre.
Fights play out with you controlling two heroes from a collection of four, each possessing their own dedicated cards. But because synergy is of utmost importance, picking two characters that go well together is all part of the fun. Do you want to go full offense or build up a solid defense? The choice is yours on each run, giving plenty of incentive to keep trying new synergies to see what works best for you.
You can add Roguebook to your Steam wishlist right away in preparation for its June 17 release. The game is also set to release for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and X, and Nintendo Switch at a later date.
