What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Banners of Ruin is launching Early Access because we want to foster a community whilst we improve and fine tune the game. In it's current state, the game is fun, challenging and complex. There's a lot of room for polish and we have tons of ideas for content and features over the course of this period, however our top priority is to deliver a very solid and unique Deckbuilding experience which means we want to hear from you! We'd be delighted to see what players do and what strategies they employ, what cards they dislike and which ones they love!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We aim to leave the early access period within one calendar year of our initial release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The final game will feature a larger pool of cards, character passives and campaign scenarios than those in the Early Access period.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable with a myriad of cards to choose from, and 6 character races to hire into your party. Some artwork is subject to change, some characters do not have final animations, but the game can be played broadly as intended.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to release the full version at a higher price point than the Early Access version.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Get in touch! We listen to all opinions and suggestions our players have and endeavour to work with the community to improve the game as much as possible. Whether you think a particular card is a little under-powered or you're finding a particular fight impossibly hard, we'd like to hear your experiences so we can improve the game for everyone. You can get in touch with us on the discussion boards here on steam, or through our community Discord!”

About This Game






The Blackfoots have been dealt a mighty blow by the fearsome House Ender - you must infiltrate their defences and cut out the rot.

Build your deck and fight your way through the city of Dawn's Point with card based combat and up to 6 members in your party. Characters loyal to your cause have a set of unique cards and abilities that may augment your deck in powerful, exciting ways. Defeat each of the elite opponents in your path to the city's Guard Captain and cripple the Enders at their core. You and your brethren may fall at this attempt, but there will always be others to carry the torch. House Blackfoot will remember, and they will never relent. Encounter a series of scenarios as you travel through the city which may help you, but at the expense of some moral ground.




  • Build your deck by looting, buying and unlocking a myriad of cards.
  • Beavers and Bears? Or Wolves and Weasels? Build a party of up to 6 throughout your run to battle your foes.
  • 6 Races to explore with unique racial card pools and passives to choose from.
  • Ding! Level up your characters to unlock talent cards and powerful passives that can drastically impact your strategy.
  • Loot! Collect weapons and armour to bolster your ranks with interesting effects and abilities.
  • Which way? Navigate the streets in a dynamic card driven campaign.
  • Decisions. Reveal and engage in varying encounters on your journey which can have positive and negative outcomes.
  • Fight an increasingly challenging array of enemies with exciting AI behaviours.
  • Another failed attempt? Earn tokens after every run to unlock new cards and passives into the game to help you achieve victory.





We think Banners of Ruin is in a really enjoyable place right now. There's plenty to expand upon, balance and polish - a lot of the artwork needs a rendering pass (the game requires a huge amount!) - but we think there's plenty of depth to explore. As long-standing fans of deckbuilders like Dominion, we think the game offers a deeper, more unique flavour of deckbuilding while introducing new mechanics like positions, characters, equipment and races!

The game is designed to be re-played, with at least 4-6 hours of content, a fun core gameplay loop and an unlock system that increases the pool of cards you want to see over the course of successive runs. We want you to know that content is our biggest priority going forward, but also that it's all being created by a tiny core team of two, with an extremely talented composer.

There's so many exciting things we want to do with Banners of Ruin, and we know it might not come as quickly as you'd like, but nevertheless we hope you'll choose to support us and most importantly - love the game! We've got plenty of ideas in mind and we'd like nothing more than a vibrant community to join us in exploring them.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you're having issues, want to provide some feedback, or just tell us which animal you think is the best :)

(P.S. it's Bears.)
