Despot’s Game: Dystopian Army Builder, the roguelike tactical auto-battler from developer Konfa Games and publisher tinyBuild where commanders build their squad of puny humans into a legion of wizards, ninjas, and dozens of other heroes while leading them through a strange post-apocalyptic labyrinth, exits Steam Early Access to 1.0 release on PlayStation 5|4, Xbox One, Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC this summer.
The nefarious d’Spot has spoken–Despot’s Game soon leaves Early Access to join the console and PC ranks with revamped mechanics, new quests, enemies, mutations, and an expanded soundtrack. Terrorizing the naked and memory-less humans as they try to escape an endless maze-like complex has never been so fun.
Equip the unarmed masses with one of 50 weapons ranging from conventional swords and guns to ridiculous apparatuses like stale pretzels throwers, magical rabbits-in-a-hat, and damage-soaking refrigerators. Make use of 10 human classes including throwers, mages, and cultists, building up their ranks and diversifying armaments to unlock power-ups that aid in battles.
Keep the ranks well-fed and deploy them strategically for a better chance at survival. While mages and shooters provide support with long-range attacks, fighters sporting Rocky’s iconic boxing gloves and tanks with protective periodic tables should take the front lines for hands-on combat and protection.
Stack mutations to strengthen forces, like invoking “Glory to Satan” to sacrifice a newcomer and summon an eldritch tentacle that deals massive damage to foes. Smash through 60 types of monsters with destructive abilities to survive these chaotic killing games. From man-eating cabbages and killer robots to necromancers joined by vicious giant skeletons ready to drop humans into black portals, many perils await.
Alongside the 1.0 release, Despot’s Game also gains a new mode focused on an enhanced multiplayer experience.
“Over the past months, we really listened to our community to learn what would make Despot’s Game even greater,” said Nikolay Kuznetsov, Game Creator, Konfa Games. “From that came exciting revamped mechanics to better the player experience and a ton of new content that we are proud to release across all consoles and mobile. Now, there’s no more excuse to stay out of Despot’s Game’s chaotic madness!”
Despot’s Game: Dystopian Army Builder is available now on Steam Early Access for Windows PC for USD $14.99 / EUR €14.99. It supports English, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, French, Italian, German, Spanish (Spain), Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese languages.
