Plague Road the dark and twisted fantasy game which combines turn-based tactical strategy and Rogue-like elementsWhich was made possible thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign and over 1100 backers.
Will soon be launching on the PlayStation 4 and portable handheld PlayStation Vita console offering a genre-blending tale of regret and redemption from the creators of Death Tales, check out the PS4 teaser trailer for the new game below.
Luc Bernard Game Director, Arcade Distillery explains more :
Plague Road was a game that Conrad Zimmerman and I came up with one evening at his place. I have a certain obsession with plague doctors and am really good at making turn-based strategy games, and Conrad loves roguelikes. So we combined those two game genres to make something new.
My issue with roguelikes and why I can’t get into them is because I don’t like losing all my progress and starting from zero each time. So in Plague Road you will have a farm where you will be able to unlock new buildings (by finding NPCs in the world and doing quests for them), upgrade and see the progress you’ve made. So even if you mess up while venturing out into the world, you will always be improving your farm.
When you find survivors in this world, you can choose to bring them with you to help reach the city or you can retire them into buildings, which will unlock new skills. On the topic of skills, you can see in our new trailer that some of those will be quite powerful, but will require a lot of stamina – so you must be wise about when you use them. Also each survivor you collect will be unique in terms of their stats and initial skills. You’ll constantly be exploring to find the best survivors for your party.
Don’t be reckless when you bring survivors out on the road – if they die it’s permanent. But don’t fear, you can always find new ones. The only character who you will not lose due to death is the Plague Doctor.
