What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“These Doomed Isles is a complex survival city builder with roguelike deckbuilding mechanics, and we want to incorporate player feedback to ensure the game is as good as it can be and well balanced. We think our game can become better and more content-rich through a long period of support and expansion, and Early Access provides a great way of involving players in this process.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“These Doomed Isles will be in Early Access for around 12 months”

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

“We plan for the full version of These Doomed Isles to have additional features guided by community input and to have additional Gods with new mechanics and playstyles.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“These Doomed Isles is a fully playable game with all the content described on the Steam page. The core game loop is in place and you will be able to play with 3 different Gods and hundreds of unique cards. We just have a lot more we want to add!”

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

“The price will likely increase during Early Access as we expand the game with more content.”

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

“We love involving the community in development! We want to get the community involved in playtesting and take on your feedback. Please do join our Discord to get involved in this process! We will also be keeping an eye on the Steam forums as well and we will be sharing a roadmap for the start of early access!”

About This Game

Play god in this survival city-builder with roguelike deckbuilding mechanics. Harvest cards to raise land from the sea, build settlements for your followers and rain fire upon waves of invaders. Choose from 4 gods with unique cards, playstyles and abilities to lead their civilisations to victory in strategic run-based gameplay! We plan to add more gods, cards and enemies to the game throughout early access, as well as continuing to iterate on the game based on community feedback. 

Expand from humble beginnings to a sprawling island chain with farms, industry, fortifications and more, as you discover ever more advanced buildings and strategies that will help you answer your followers’ prayers and win the run!

Harvest cards to craft the deck you want. Manage the cards in your deck to ensure you can survive until the next harvest. Find powerful synergies with over 300 cards to play with to overcome the challenges in your way.

Will you survive these doomed isles? You'll face increasing challenges as waves of invaders and powerful bosses attempt to undo all of your hard work, turning your settlement to rubble and crushing any of your followers who dare to stand in their way. Learn from your failures and perfect your strategies to complete your followers’ prayers and reign victorious.

Each of the gods have unique god powers along with a host of powerful cards you can wield to carry your civilisation to survival. Rain meteors down on invaders or stir up a storm to sink them at sea; stack up powerful status effects on your enemies and make sure they think twice about invading again!

  • 4 Civilisations and Gods with different playstyles, aesthetics and abilities 
  • Over 300 unique cards 
  • Over 20 unique enemies and 12 bosses
