Roguebook is a roguelike card game designed for one player, in which, building a strong deck, we walk through procedurally generated locations and fight a hordes of various creatures. The game was created by the Abrakam SA studio, responsible for another strategic card game - Faeria. Roguebook also found its way to the Kickstarter platform, where it collected the money it wanted.

Plot

Roguebook is a book, but not as ordinary as it seems. Besides having the will and being guided by his own aspirations, it is said that anyone who manages to read it fully will become all-knowing and will enjoy almost the same respect as the gods. And as you can probably guess, it is not easy to read this peculiar book, because every time we undertake a task, the book generates a unique world, so that on each of its pages we find various and dangerous tasks to overcome, whether in the form of dangerous monsters or events oscillating around ancient (and not only) legends, located in the universe of Faeria.

Mechanics

The adventure begins with choosing two heroes who differ in class, race and special skills and require different tactics. Among the heroes available in the game you'll find a hand-to-hand combat specialist, Sharra, the universal Sorocco, the buff thrower and time influence Aurora, as well as Seifer - Blood Tyrant, who has the devilish powers to turn into a demon.

After selecting the characters, we begin our journey through a world generated randomly by the book, where we move around a map consisting of hexes. It is up to us to decide where and in what order we will go, but sometimes the terrain will be covered by the fog of war, blocking the visibility of the map, so we can't do without exploring. During the journey we will meet NPCs, shopkeepers, jewellers or priests, but we will also come across special events. Some of them are meetings, where we have the opportunity to choose one of several options, and some of them are skirmishes. However, there is also chain of events, so if we draw the same event several times, the game, remembering the result of previous meetings, will prepare something unique for us.

Roguebook, however, mainly includes skirmishes with various creatures observed from the side. The setting of our heroes (one in front and one in the back), but also the deck of cards we have built is very important for their completion. This is because the position occupied by the heroes changes dynamically and if we play a card with a particular hero's attack, he either moves to the front (if he was standing in the back) or stays in place.

As for the cards themselves, we find defense and attack cards, but also buffs, debuffs and other special skills. In addition, we have the possibility to improve our cards with special gems, provided that they have a slot for them.
