'Dandy Ace' (ALL) Reveals Twitch Mode, Steam Preview Event Starts Today

by Rainier on Jan. 11, 2021 @ 9:08 a.m. PST

Dandy Ace is an over the top action game that follows this fabulous magician seeking to combine and use his magical cards, fighting and looting his way to defeat the Green-Eyed Illusionist and free himself from a cursed mirror.

Part Action/RPG and part roguelite, Dandy Ace’s core mechanic is in its extremely flexible skill system. Based on the magic cards that Ace has up his sleeve, the combination and powers of the skills can change depending on the equipped order. Each time Ace journeys into the Cursed Mirror, trapped there by the evil Green-Eyed Magician Lele, the player has a different selection to choose from, enabling countless possibilities for different builds and playstyles.

While battling your way through Lele’s ever changing palace, combine different cards with more than a thousand possibilities, each with their own playstyles and powers. Every run provides new challenges and combinations for players to explore as they progress closer to Lele.

Play as Dandy Ace, the amazing hero, and survive the challenges of the extravagant, lavish and ever changing palace created to defeat him filled with bizarre creatures and outrageous bosses. Find all of the magical cards, gather shards and gold, and get help from his assistants and unconventional allies.

Playfully called ‘Magic Mirror Mode’ as it allows viewers to take on the role of the game’s antagonist Lele, the new feature lets viewers of the game on Twitch make the streamer’s gameplay unpredictable to sometimes hilarious results.

This new mode takes center stage before the game’s launch during Dandy Ace’s upcoming Creators’ Preview Event taking place from January 11th to January 25th.

Interested fans can head to Steam and download the demo to take part in the event.

By enabling “Twitch Mode” from the Custom Mode menu when starting Dandy Ace, when streamers go live on Twitch, their audiences will be able to use Twitch Chat to take on the role of Lele, the game’s antagonist, and influence the challenges ahead of Ace as he takes on the Cursed Mirror. They can do things like spawn random enemies, block potion usage, and even use some of Ace’s spells against him. This one viewer, chosen at random each run, can even drop Twitch Cupcakes into the game map that will either poison or heal ace upon use.

Aside from taking on the role of Lele, Twitch Mode also allows viewers on Twitch to taunt and encourage the player upon death (we’ll leave which one you prefer up to you). Votes can be taken to determine Ace’s path through the Cursed Mirror. Viewers can even decide what rewards are available at the Reward Tent between levels. And if players are feeling generous, they can drop specific spell cards for Ace to use against the foes within the Cursed Mirror.

Hot on the heels of the amazing Awesome Games Done Quick event, we recommend trying to pull off some speed runs of the Creators’ Preview Event in true AGDQ fashion. For the faint of heart, you can still try the Twitch Mode and customize just how much trouble your viewers can cause you if you’re not up for letting them dominate your entire trip through the Cursed Mirror.

Key Features:

  • Rogue-lite experience: Try, die and try again until you beat the Green-Eyed Illusionist with the replayability and adrenaline of a rogue-like with permanent upgrades that makes you stronger as you progress further with each run.
  • 2D isometric fast-paced action: with lots of challenging but fair combat engagements. Battle your way through bizarre creatures and outrageous bosses while building up your own arsenal of magic.
  • Create your own builds:Combine cards with more than a thousand possibilities, each with its own gameplay style and powers.
  • Challenges of the ever changing palace: Explore the extravagant and lavish aesthetics of the game through the nonlinear progression of the palace, fighting off unique enemies and bosses, on your quest to defeat Lele and escape the cursed mirror.

Dandy Ace is coming to PC (Steam) in February 2021, followed by a launch on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One later in 2021.
