With a unique blend of tactical combat, strategic gameplay, and boisterous animated heroes, Gordian Quests takes players on a journey to defeat an ultimate evil plaguing the land.

In Gordian Quest players will be able to assemble the team of heroes of their choice and lead them through challenging missions while also strategically building their decks and assigning their heroes new attributes. Each of the heroes in Gordian Quest brings unique class skills and playstyles to their party. Players will be able to train their heroes and upgrade their abilities as well as equip them with weaponry and armor in order to take on the challenging missions that lie ahead. Each map and dungeon in Gordian Quest is procedurally generated, making each encounter different from the last. In order to survive players will need to react quickly and think strategically when forming their team.

In addition to bringing unique skills to the fray, heroes in Gordian Quest are able to form bonds. As players progress through their quest to save the land they’ll be able to discover and forge bonds of friendship, rivalry, mentorship or even love between their heroes, giving players access to powerful combo abilities. 

Featuring a unique blend of tactical turn-based combat and card battling, Gordian Quest will challenge players to position their heroes smartly while also strategically using the cards in their arsenal to keep the tide of battle in their favor. Each battlefield in Gordian Quest is divided into two sections, player side and enemy side. While players are on their side of the battlefield they’ll have freedom of movement in order to predict oncoming assaults from enemies and avoid them while also positioning their heroes to get the most impact when using their cards.


Players can now begin their Gordian Quest as it is available on Steam Early Access for $19.99 $17.99.

A list of Early Access features include:

  • One-Act - The Early Access version features one Act, providing 5-6 hours of playtime per playthrough.
  • Six heroes - At the moment, players can choose from six different heroes each with their own unique class, skills, and playstyle to form a party of three and bring to adventure. At launch, there is a swordhand, a cleric, a ranger, a scoundrel, a druid, and a spellbinder. 
  • Hundreds of skills - The heroes have a combined total of close to 500 passive and active skills that can be deployed during turn-based battles, allowing players to discover and formulate their favorite combos. 
  • Train and equip heroes - Heroes can be upgraded, trained and equipped with a large selection of weapons, armor, and enchanted trinkets to enhance their abilities.
  • High replayability - Procedurally generated maps and dungeons and randomized hero skills make each playthrough different from the last.
  • Various difficulty levels - Take on hardcore mode for a teeth-gritting permadeath experience, or play more casually where death is only a setback.
  • Loot galore - Gather items and relics throughout your journey to boost your heroes’ abilities. In the future, you will also encounter mysterious items that can bless your heroes but also cripple them with a curse at the same time.
  • Carryover rewards and progression system - Get rewarded the more you play. Progressing in Acts with each hero lets them start off with a bit more resources, items, or even granting the ability to modify their starting decks.

Additional features and content planned for the full version:

  • Three more Acts - The completed game will feature four fully fleshed out Acts to explore - each with new heroes, skills, quests, relics, items, and NPCs to discover. Each Act will introduce new gameplay mechanics that expand on and enrich the base game experience.
  • More heroes - Encounter more heroes from all over the realm and form new party combos and relationships.
  • Relationship system - Future development will introduce a unique system where bonds of friendship, rivalry, mentorship or even love among the heroes in the party can be uncovered to unlock secret combo abilities. 
  • Shape the course of your adventure - Align yourself with different factions, embark on side quests and eventually shape the course of your adventure with critical decisions.
  • Endless mode - This special mode makes the game a perpetual adventure and allows you to keep on questing, slaying more monsters and collecting more heroes, skills, relics, and weapons.
  • PVP mode - Engage in skirmish fights with other players using your preferred mix of heroes and skills.
