'ZOR: Pilgrimage Of The Slorfs' Playable Demo Available, Comes To Steam Early Access This Summer

ZOR: Pilgrimage Of The Slorfs is a puzzly adventure card game, in a prehistoric fantasy world.

Inspired by Gloomhaven and The Dark Crystal, ZOR: Pilgrimage of the Slorfs blends multiple genres into an innovative turn-based tactical experience where every step counts.

Embarking on a journey at the request of star god Zor, Slorfs must venture into the untamed wilderness in search of answers. Braving treacherous arenas (notice the seriously creepy plantlife) they’ll need to use cards to move, attack and harvest. Mapping out effective routes through ZOR’s hex-based board is key to maximizing tactical-takedowns and resource gains, without sacrificing the Slorfs. 

ZOR takes the challenge up a notch by seamlessly combining survival and combat. During each turn players need to strategize based on enemies (those one-eyed Grimps are especially shifty), available resources and how much food and water the Slorfs have. Each move leaves the Slorfs a little bit weaker and if they run out of these resources or take too much damage, they’ll die for good. The prize for effective planning, gathering and kills? Upgrading cards back at base camp.

When camping players can craft items, upgrade cards, and strategize for the next day. Cards can be upgraded to be more powerful or created from scratch using raw materials. Improve the Slorfs’ quality of life with items like cozy fires, comfy bedding, practice targets, and more. But as with everything in ZOR, players must choose wisely. The further the Slorfs venture in their journey, the bigger the challenge…

Think you can protect the Slorfs from a certain doom? 

ZOR: Pilgrimage of the Slorfs will be released into Early Access on Steam later this summer, with its public demo available now

“ZOR's early access will be polished, as bug free as possible and feel close to a complete game. It will have a tutorial, intro run, and a repeatable procedural run. At launch the game will have more content and bosses, a meta progression system, and the final narrative moments. Also steam features like achievements and cloud saves, will be supported by launch.”

“Currently the game has a polished tutorial and intro (playable in the demo), core features like settings and save/load implemented, and the procedural mode is playable, but in progress. Content is being added and tuned, and QoL adjustments are being made based on feedback.”

Key Features:

  • Tabletop-inspired turn-based deck builder with eye-catching 3D graphics
  • Terrain, traps, enemies and auras create fresh tactical puzzles each turn that reward mastery over metagaming
  • Hundreds of cards with a variety of uses, including harvesting, attacking, movement, building, buffs and more
  • Use experience to upgrade cards to more powerful versions, and expand your deck through exploration and crafting
  • Procedural maps, strategic choices, and endless deck combinations, no two games will ever be the same

ZOR: Pilgrimage of the Slorfs is in development for PC (Steam), scheduled for 2022/2023.
