Foretales is a story-driven card game that tells the story of a collapsing world doomed by a dark​ prophecy.

Foretales tells the story of a collapsing world doomed by a dark​ prophecy. Assuming the role of the avian small-time thief Volepain, you must assemble your party by choosing from a selection of anthropomorphic characters ranging from the tiger archer Léo, to the gorilla Karst, to the elephant Isabeau, and parrot Pattenbois. Use each character's unique skills along with consumable cards to forge your path through a huge variety of scripted encounters and situations. Choose whether to approach a scenario by using stealth, creating a ruse, making a trade, or engaging in good old-fashioned fisticuffs.

A terrible curse is ravaging the realm and the only one who can stop it is a small-time thief named Volepain.

The Weaver entrusted the instruments of creation to her children, the Nymphants.

The Weaver put in the hands of her children the fate of the world’s creation and stability. The instruments of creation have the power to create and destroy the many worlds of Foretales. Discover the true goals of the Nymphants and the Cult or embrace the Maelstorm for eternity!

Play through the story multiple times to unlock all narrative branches, find multiple solutions to a single problem and maybe discover a way to achieve what seemed impossible at first. Experiment with different card associations and write your own story with your own moral values.

Foretales’ tabletop inspired mechanics are brought to life through a gorgeous illustrative art style that recalls the classic 2D animation of Disney’s golden era. The atmosphere is enhanced through a soundtrack by legendary composer Christophe Héral, of Beyond Good & Evil and Rayman Legends fame, while prolific character actor Travis Willingham (whose IMDB profile is so vast we wouldn’t even know where to begin) offers his esteemed vocal talents as the narrator.

Now it’s up to you to forge your own destiny on this perilous quest, when Foretales comes to Nintendo Switch and Steam on September 15th. 

Foretales is unlike anything else out there, using cards to not only battle and barter, but also dictate important story choices like where to go, how to infiltrate an enemy stronghold, and who to recruit,” said Alain Puget, founder of Alkemi. “Foretales is more than a card game, it’s an adventure! And we can’t wait to share it with you all when it launches on September 15th!”

“We at Dear Villagers seek to bring people unique experiences, and Foretales is a perfect encapsulation of that,” said Guillaume Jamet, Head of Publishing at Dear Villagers. “It’s more than a CCG, but a sprawling adventure played out in table top form! Its whimsy is bolstered by legendary composer Christophe Héraltop’s killer soundtrack, and veteran character actor Travis Willingham offering his esteemed vocal talents as the narrator. Foretales has got freedom, choice, and charm to spare!”

Our boldest adventurers can sweeten the pot by tossing in some extra coin - approximately €23.99 / $23.99 / £18.78 - for the Deluxe Edition, containing Foretales’ original soundtrack and a digital art book.
