About This Game

Stratum Descent is a micro rogue-lite deck builder that combines strategic card crafting with perilous hex exploration. You wield a unique set of cards, each customizable not only in terms of its effects but also its cost to play. The rarity of a card determines the extent of customization available, empowering you to forge a truly formidable deck.

Embark on a thrilling journey to conquer the elusive stratum lords, navigating through progressively challenging layers of dungeons. Along the way, you'll encounter a variety of elements, including events, cities, and monsters, as well as discover even more powerful cards, mystical stones, and coveted relics.

Key Features:

  • Craft and customize cards with various effects.
  • Adjust the cost of cards.
  • Crystalize cards to integrate their effects into new, more potent cards.

Enhance your character's capabilities through upgrades.
  • Increase health for durability.
  • Increase energy reserves for powerful plays.
  • Improve drop rate and fragment gain for currency and stone/relic accumulation.

Status Triggers add more strategy to your deck building. The majority of the status effects have conditional effects that can be applied when played. Each card has one effect that is considered the main effect, and when the card is played additional effects can are played.
Played a card with a burn main effect? Melt any ice on the target and cause blindness.
Played a card with a poison main effect? Add weakness status if the target is also bleeding.
Played a card with a heal main effect? Increase regen potency on yourself.
Played a card with a ice main effect? Turn water and bleed effect on target into additional ice.

Delve into distinct strata, each with its unique theme, monster list, and a formidable stratum lord.

Experience escalating difficulty and length as you progress through each stratum. Travel hex to hex defeating monsters, shopping in cities and making game changing decisions in events.

Secure relics from defeated monsters to empower your character.
Equip relics before embarking on new journeys to enhance effects and amplify your character's prowess for that run.

How deep will you descend? Strategize, adapt, and overcome the challenges that await in the ever-deepening layers of Stratum Descent.
