'Despot's Game' Leaving Early Access Later This Summer, Also Comes To Nintendo Switch, PlayStation and Xbox - Trailer

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!

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!

Equip the unarmed masses with one of 50 weapons ranging from conventional swords and guns to ridiculous apparatuses like stale pretzels throwers, magical rabbits-in-a-hat, and damage-soaking refrigerators. Make use of 10 human classes including throwers, mages, and cultists, building up their ranks and diversifying armaments to unlock power-ups that aid in battles.

Keep the ranks well-fed and deploy them strategically for a better chance at survival. While mages and shooters provide support with long-range attacks, fighters sporting Rocky’s iconic boxing gloves and tanks with protective periodic tables should take the front lines for hands-on combat and protection.

Stack mutations to strengthen forces, like invoking “Glory to Satan” to sacrifice a newcomer and summon an eldritch tentacle that deals massive damage to foes. Smash through 60 types of monsters with destructive abilities to survive these chaotic killing games. From man-eating cabbages and killer robots to necromancers joined by vicious giant skeletons ready to drop humans into black portals, many perils await.

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!

 Despot's Game: Dystopian Army Builder exits Steam Early Access to 1.0 release on PlayStation 5|4, Xbox One, Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC this summer.

The nefarious d’Spot has spoken–Despot’s Game soon leaves Early Access to join the console and PC ranks with revamped mechanics, new quests, enemies, mutations, and an expanded soundtrack. Terrorizing the naked and memory-less humans as they try to escape an endless maze-like complex has never been so fun.

Today, players can enjoy Despot’s Game for the first time on consoles via an Xbox demo featuring the first levels of the Early Access dungeons. Alongside the 1.0 release, the game also gains a new mode focused on an enhanced multiplayer experience.

“Over the past months, we really listened to our community to learn what would make Despot’s Game even greater,” said Nikolay Kuznetsov, Game Creator, Konfa Games. “From that came exciting revamped mechanics to better the player experience and a ton of new content that we are proud to release across all consoles and mobile. Now, there’s no more excuse to stay out of Despot's Game’s chaotic madness!”

Key Features:

  • 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!
  • Deadly weapons: Arm your warriors with stale pretzels, tunas, fridges, tables and other lethal items!
  • 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!
  • Asynchronous multiplayer: Fight against other players' armies online, advance through the rankings and compete in various multiplayer challenges!
  • Streamer mode: If you are a streamer, turn on Twitch Integration in the game's settings: in-game humans will be renamed after your subscribers or followers!

Currently available through Steam Early Access for $14.99 / EUR €14.99, Despot's Game is coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC in Q3 2022.
