“Vambrace understands what it means to be a roguelike in soul and spirit!”
9/10 – TechRaptor

“Vambrace: Cold Soul is an abusive girlfriend who got me hooked on crack, locked up my passport for 'safekeeping', and now has me turning tricks on the street, but I still love her anyway.”
9/10 – GameSkinny

“An exquisitely cruel adventure.”
4/5 – OnlySP

A Word From The Dev

"Vambrace: Cold Soul is a love letter to the games that left their indelible marks on us. It's inspired by the gothic fantasy of Castlevania, the deep lore of series like The Elder Scrolls, the replayability of roguelites like FTL: Faster Than Light, and the sweeping, character-driven epics of our favorite JRPGs. It represents our effort to seize those varied elements and condense them into an interactive experience players from all walks (especially masochists) will enjoy!"

About This Game



The King of Shades has cursed the great city of Icenaire. Now cast under a permanent blight of frost fall, its former residents have returned from the dead as mad Wraiths. Survivors take refuge deep underground where they lead a desperate campaign against this unearthly power. Woefully outmatched, they are forced into hiding as the King of Shades amasses an army of the undead above them. One fateful day, a mysterious stranger appears in the city with an enchanted vambrace. She may now be their only hope…



You are Evelia Lyric, bearer of the Aetherbrace and the only human capable of entering Icenaire. The survivors now look to you as their best hope against the King of Shades. Only one problem...you’re woefully outmatched, and survival is not guaranteed.

Vambrace: Cold Soul is a narrative-driven game filled with memorable characters, brutal challenges, and deep strategy. To succeed, you must choose perceptive party leaders, camp to recuperate, navigate strange encounters, and survive deadly combat. Will you scavenge for supplies to sell or use them to craft new items for your next expedition? The surface of Icenaire is cold and unforgiving. So, prepare your party well before departing...lest you join the cursed city's undead.

In this game, the difference between life and undeath all comes down to good planning and smart tactics!
