What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We think Tales of the Deck is a solid foundation for a game. We want to add polish and content to make it the best game it can be. With early access we can find a community committed to building this game with us. We hope you'll join us during this process.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“6-12 months.”

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

  • 3 complete stages, each with 20+ enemies to encounter. These will be the Forest, Graveyard, and another yet to be announced.
  • The Ranger will be an available hero to build your deck.
  • The draw and discard pile will be available to the player through a built-in deck tracker. This will open up new mechanics for how players can interact with their cards.
  • A complete equipment system allowing players to level up their heroes between battles. Increase a hero's stats, or gain an interesting start of battle effect.
  • We love that pixel style, and we want to improve it in our UI, and in our card art.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • 125+ spells to build your deck.
  • 4 different heroes to assemble your party.
  • 35+ enemies to encounter deep within the Forest, and Graveyard.

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

“The full release will be sold at an increased price.”

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

“We are able to release new content rapidly. We'd like to test these cards and characters with our audience during early access. This allows immediate feedback to better inform our game designs before full release.”

About This Game

Tales of the Deck is a single player adventure card game styled after the RPGs from gaming's past. Build your own deck, encounter retro monsters, and tell your tale.


  • Build your starting deck: Before your adventure begins, a deck will need to be created. Rather than being given a deck, you create your own. Your fate is in your hands.

  • Choose Three Heroes: Combine the strengths of three heroes to battle against evil. Choose spells for each of them to build your deck, and strategy.

  • Battle Retro Enemies: Take your heroes against the most retro of monsters. Enemies have their own unique ways of throwing your plans into disarray.

  • Discover Incredible Items: During your journey, and between your battles, you'll discover powerful items that will aid in your quest.

  • Unique Mp Resource System: Each hero has its own Mp, and spells. A hero's spell can give it Mp, or cost Mp. Balance these wisely to get the most out of your party.
