'Rise Of Humanity' Joining Steam Game Festival With Playable Demo - Screens

Rise Of Humanity is a turn-based strategy deck-building game where players will gather, upgrade and combine cards, recruit new heroes as others meet their unfortunate demise and discover new strategies by completing missions in an attempt to stop the remnant of project Hivemind.

The Hivemind project resulted in the most powerful AI created by mankind. At the time we didn’t know better than letting it control all of our automated work force. A disaster waiting to happen as the AI went rogue.

In Rise of Humanity you take control of a band of odd heroes who so far have survived the onslaught that started 50 years ago. They have discovered that the robots the AI uses to do its bidding are getting weaker and this is the time to strike back.

Players build up a deck for each of their characters by defeating enemies and finding loot on a 3D tactical battlefield, as they try to determine the fate of humanity. The game combines elements from popular deckbuilding board games and turn-based strategy games.

Each hero (and enemy) is controlled by a deck of cards. This deck gives your characters actions during a mission. Each mission is played out on a hexagonal grid in a strategic turn-based manner. Missions are procedurally built so no mission is ever the same.

Rise of Humanity will be playable as a free demo during the Steam Game Fest for one week only, starting June 9, 2020.

"With our participation in the upcoming Steam Game Festival, this is the first time people worldwide will have the opportunity to play the game. We look forward to hearing about people’s experiences and what they expect of a game like Rise of Humanity," stated Mike Coeck, CEO, Cybernetic Walrus.

Destroying enemies and finishing missions gives you access to new cards for your heroes. You build their deck as you play the game! However if they die, they will lose their progress so every decision counts!

Will you be the one to save humanity and let it rise again from the ashes of this onslaught?

Oh and did we mention we have exploding bunnies in the game?

Rise Of Humanity is in development for PC (Steam), scheduled for Fall 2020.
