'Crown Trick' (ALL) Gets Release Date - Trailer

Crown Trick is a procedurally generated roguelike set in the daunting Nightmare Realm, a labyrinthine, underground world filled with monsters and traps.

Crown Trick is steeped in strategic, synchronous, turn-based gameplay where enemy decisions and actions are only revealed when players make their moves, and features hundreds of weapons, skills, and items on hand to customise and evolve the combat style as the quest progresses.

Waking up in the Nightmare Realm as Elle and armed with only a magical, talking crown to guide them, players develop their own unique combat style, choosing between active and passive abilities, items, and relics to suit. Mastering dominion over elements will also be a key pillar to survival, and upon vanquishing the high-level familiars found lurking in the Nightmare Realm, players will steal their skills and wield them as their own in their journey to escape. 

Players will have to master the elements and combine dozens of skills, while planning the best strategy, to overcome deadly enemies that stand still until their plan of attack is executed. As the quest continues, players will have the opportunity to gain access to high-level skills – Familiars – secured from the elite monsters that roam the dungeon, increasing the chances of both success and survival.

Redefining the roguelike genre with synchronous turn-based combat in which monsters and traps only execute their moves as the player does, Crown Trick’s gameplay demands each turn is well planned to help players succeed. The game features procedurally generated dungeons so that no two runs are ever the same as enemies, puzzles, and abilities will vary with each attempt to escape the Nightmare Realm.

Key Features:

  • Engaging strategic gameplay: Monsters and traps move only when the player moves; carefully thought out strategies are key to escaping the labyrinthine dungeon
  • Fight how you want: Create and develop a unique combat style with dozens of active and passive skills and abilities, items, and relics help create different ways to cut through enemy encounters
  • Learn from enemies: Gather elite ‘Familiar’ skills by overcoming enemies, ready to unleash on others deeper in the dungeon
  • Different dungeons every time: The procedurally generated maze ensures players have unique experiences every time they enter the Nightmare Realm.

Crown Trick is coming to Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam) on October 15, 2020
