'Rise of Humanity' Demo Available, Prologue Next Week, Early Access Later This Year - Screens & Trailer

Rise Of Humanity is a turn-based strategy deck-building game where you battle enemy bots, plan your strategy to complete missions, collect, upgrade and merge powerful cards to save humanity in this tactical turn-based game!

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.

Belgian developer Cybernetic Walrus announced that a free prologue for Rise of Humanity will be available starting 24 June 2021.

However, there is also a free demo available right now (until June 22nd) as part of Steam Next Fest.

''We’re really proud of Rise of Humanity, it’s a complex but fun card game with a unique mechanic, stunning visuals and one-of-a-kind weapons such as an exploding bunny.'' Mike Coeck, CEO of Cybernetic Walrus said. ''We’ve made some exciting new additions to the core gameplay, based on a lot of iteration and user testing: we introduced a movement and energy system that made the game even more exciting and strategic and the deck-building aspect is even more prominent now!''

The Early Access version of the game is planned to release in the coming months, more information to follow on this soon.

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).
