'Despot's Game' Launches Open Championship In Preparation For Early Access Launch - Trailer

by Rainier on Sept. 14, 2021 @ 3:31 p.m. PDT

Despot's Game is rogue-like tactics with turbo-charged battles. Build a team and sacrifice the heck out of them to rush through enemies... and other players!

A group of people wake up in a strange post-apocalyptic labyrinth — naked, with no memories and with a bunch of weapons. Is this a joke, a crazy experiment, or... a game?

You’ll find out soon enough, just try not to die first!

Despot’s Game will be available on Steam Early Access on October 14, 2021!

All participants are divided into 10 groups. 5 best players in each group will receive unique physical rewards: caps! The winners who finish first in their respective groups will receive, in addition to the despotic headgear, super secret rewards we can't reveal yet! Content creators—YouTubers and streamers—are competing in a special separate competition to determine the winner. The reward is—you'll like it—being IMMORTALIZED in the game!

An NPC and a special achievement will be named after the champion


  • The Championship will be held from September 14th to October 5th. End time: 10 am PDT / 7 pm CEST;
  • To participate, you have to start a new game, beat the dungeon and then compete in the King of the Hillmode. No additional registration needed;
  • You can improve your results at any time during the Championship by building a new army, beating the game again and battling it out in King of the Hill;
  • If you are a content creator and wish to qualify for the Streamer's Championship, please send an email to Make sure to include links to your channels (YouTube, Twitch, etc.);
  • Also, you can add a tag with your favorite content creator's nickname to spread the word about them. This tag will be shown next to your own nickname on the King of the Hillleaderboards. The streamer will be pleased to see that!

Key Features:

  • Get your pretzels ready. Your puny squad is capable of much more. Choose your loot and transform the squishy humans into wizards, cultists, ninjas and dozens of other heroes, including the mythical stale pretzel throwers. With perks and class combos, there are thousands of ways to build your army. The man-eating cabbage will appreciate the variety in its diet!
  • Crush your rivals. If you can survive the labyrinth, you’ll meet THE UNSTOPPABLE END-GAME BUILDS OF OTHER PLAYERS! You’ll beat each other to death and only one will be spared by d’Spot. No offense, but in his own game he writes the rules!
  • Indirect combat. Prepare your warriors and let them fight it out on their own! Indirect combat allows you to focus heavily on tactical considerations rather than reflexes. Strengthen your front line with fridge-movers, aim your food-throwers and look after your Forbidden Summoners!
  • Endless exploration. The dungeons are generated from scratch every time, and there is no chance puny humans will ever find the way out! And even if they strike lucky — don’t worry, there are endless ways to die in Despot’s Game!

Despot's Game is planned for release on PC (Steam) in 2021.
