What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I'd like to involve community feedback on extending the game's mechanics and content until everybody is satisfied with how Draft of Darkness turns out.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I'm planning on keeping the game in Early Access for at least 6 months to 1 year. Ultimately it depends on the time the players will be satisfied with the game.”

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

“Full version will have more content (heroes, companions, weapon types, cards, enemies, bosses, areas, endings). The game will also be polished throughout the Early Access, therefore, visual improvements and quality of life changes heavily depending on player feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Once the Early Access version is ready, it'll have a big part of the scenario with several endings, areas and characters already implemented. Currently, the game is in Alpha stage with following content (more being added every patch):
  • 2 heroes
  • 2 companion archetypes
  • 80 cards
  • 2 areas
  • 12 enemies
  • 5 bosses
  • 16+ decision events

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

“Early Access version will be cheaper than the full version.”

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

“I'll stay fully in contact with the community as much as I can. Players will always be able to give feedback through our Discord server and Steam discussion forums.”

About This Game

Draft of Darkness is a roguelike deckbuilder in a post-apocalyptic setting with survival horror and resource management mechanics. Select a hero, build your starting deck and start your adventure!

During your journey:
  • Fight with infected creatures, government robots and other survivors in a turn-based battle system.
  • Explore a post-apocalyptic city consumed by darkness. Each map is procedurally generated and unique for every run.
  • Build a party of survivors to help you on your journey. Each has their own deck of abilities!
  • Trade to collect better gear and cards, which you can use to strengthen your companions.
  • Make important decisions. Each decision affects how your story progresses.

Unique Weapon Based Combat System

Each card in Draft of Darkness can be used by equipping a type of weapon. Determine your strategy by building unique decks combining cards from different weapon types. Each weapon has unique mechanics that can be mixed and matched for insane combos!

Explore Procedurally Generated Maps

Find friends and foes lurking deep withing the dark corners of the Residence, City and Hospital areas. Manage the status of your party, avoid radiation and infection at all costs!

Every Run Matters

At the end of every run, even if you fail, you will receive credits that can be used to open booster packs to unlock new starting cards for your next run. Every death is a chance to try out new strategies!

Every Choice Matters
