What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to bring The Last Hex to Early Access because we believe Early Access can help build an amazing game. We believe we have a solid foundation for The Last Hex and with the help of the community we can make the game even better. We love working on The Last Hex and we want to create the best possible version of our vision as we can. We feel this is done by involving the community to help balance, create content and squash bugs.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our goal is to get The Last Hex out of Early Access as soon as possible, but not to rush the final product. Our current estimate is 5-8 months so that we can get enough feedback and have enough time to implement and balance. But as for any Early Access game, timing can differ.”

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

“The full version is planned to have more unlockables, more character classes, more cards, enemies, events and equipment. We have a few other plans for additional content that goes beyond what we currently have and we plan to release that only with the full version.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of The Last Hex is that it has all the core functionality and mechanics that we will have in the game. Scaling cards, multiple classes, procedural world, equipment, events, progression and more. There are not as many as we would like of some of these items, but part of Early Access is to add more and more as we go.”

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

“Yes, it will be cheaper for Early Access supporters.”

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

“Our plan is to have multiple areas of contact with the community. We currently have a discord, but also plan to use social media, forums and the Steam community pages to connect with players. We hope to post tasks, polls and events for players to interact with and complete as well as host streaming sessions to engage the community.

We want to work with the community to create new content, balance the game and squash all the pesky bugs that will come about.”

Weekly patch roll up week 03: Bug fixes, updated map sizes and slightly altered events



Weekly Patch 3
Hello everyone. We are back from vacation, rested and ready to jump back into continuing to improve The Last Hex. We managed to get a bit done this week as we are ramping up for the future.

TL;DR
Biggest changes this week include a couple things
- Events now have a difficulty rating. Higher the rating the more likely it will be something deadly. Because of this change, event enemies no longer scale. If you decide to go into a 3 or 4 skull event in level 1, you may have a bad time. But if you leave, the event reshuffles back into the event order and you will see it again, so you will not miss out on the rewards for the run.
- Initiate, Adventurer and Hero difficulties now have different map lengths. With Initiate being the shortest and Hero being the longest.
- Lastly I made some visual changes for damage on player and enemy to know what the damage is coming from (poison, bleed, expose, ect ect)

Latest version 0.7.8.22

New
  • Initiate, Adventurer and Hero now have different map lengths for ease of play
  • In survival you can only move forward and not backtrack now
  • Added status effects that player and enemy had to defeated screen
  • Events now have a rating system.
  • Event enemies do not level depending on where you face them because we now show difficulty. Every event crab will be the level 1 crab, every highwayman will be level 3, and every undead will be level 6.
  • Also because of the addition of showing event rating, harder events will now shuffle back into event order so that they will be seen again. this only applies when leaving the event at the start.
  • Added ability to see all unlocked cards even if unowned.
  • Added Events to compendium
  • Steam cloud has been enabled
  • Added a new trigger point for fights, certain effects and cards will only trigger if a card is played. IE Expose,bolster will only work if the card actually hits now; This also extends to potions and items - Last breath poison only works if card hits. And this should fix multi play card issues triggering multiple times with multi proc items
  • Added new text display when attacking/evading/being shocked. Saying what kind of damage was dealt and for how much.

Weekly Patch 02: Bug fixes, Survival mode, and the next 2 weeks



Hello everyone, below is the full patch notes for this week. But some of the big changes to be aware of include.

Survival mode - A mode where you create your own character and see how far you can go with them. There are no events and there is a city after every mini boss.

Quick enemy turn toggle - A toggle in settings that will turn on/off enemy quick turns. If it is off, the card that the enemy will play will stay on screen until you hit continue. This will give players time to read the card thoroughly.

Burn buff Burn got a decent buff, it is now twice as powerful. We believe this to be a good spot for burn. Even before the update we have seen people stack 200+ burn a turn. Which can now be doubled to 400+ a turn. So it is possible.

The rest are bug fixes and some balance work.

Please read this section
The next 2 weeks
My wife and I are celebrating our anniversary and will be traveling out of the country. I most likely won't be able to make any large updates and I can't promise I will make any updates at all. I will still be active on the forums though.

Sorry for any inconvenience with this. I did my best to do more updates over the past 2 weeks to get everything ready for this absence. I wanted to get the new modes and difficulties in as well as fix as much as I could before I left.

About This Game

Not your typical deckbuilder

Creating the perfect deck of cards is important, but this will only take you so far. Every card has a calculation based on your character stats. This will determine how powerful the effects will be. Buy equipment and increase your stats to get the best out of your cards. How will you bring out the true potential of your deck?

Features

  • 11 classes with individual decks, starting equipment and powers
  • ~350 playable cards that change with your stats
  • 7 equipment slots to fill that can change the course of your run
  • ~70 events that could help or hinder you
  • 56 monsters with different decks and unique powers
  • Unlockable progression as you play. Unlock new classes, cards, equipment, events and monsters.
  • Randomized hex map for each new journey

Cards based off character stats

The cards in your deck are affected by your stats. Each card has its own formula which uses your stats to determine how powerful the effect is. To raise your stats you must equip yourself with items and you will also have chances to gain stats via events. Some cards are stronger at the start of a run but fall off in effect later on, while others grow exponentially through your run. How will you build your deck?

Procedural maps

Every time a new journey is started a random map is generated, containing random terrain types, enemy camps, events and cities with their own exhaustible shops. As you make your way through the map, monsters will grow in difficulty and you will find better cards and equipment. However, as you explore, The Lost will slowly take over the map destroying cities and events in its wake. Exploration makes you stronger, but as the undead spread it serves to empower your foe. What path will you take to destroy The Lost?

Knowledge mixed with discovery

  • Each unique monster has a set custom deck. Learn what effects and cards a monster has to figure out the best strategy to defeat them.
  • Players can see the entire map from the start. All camps, cities and events are visible to optimize your route to ensure your success.
  • Each event presents a series of choices with set outcomes. Learn when certain choices make sense, and when they should be avoided through experience.
  • A compendium of all the equipment, monsters, and cards you have come across
  • Optional choice to show card equations

System Requirements

    Minimum:
    • OS: Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8/8.1, 10
    • Processor: 1.6ghz
