DESPOT’S GAME

Despot’s Game was released on October 14, 2021 by tinyBuild. The game was developed by Konfa Games. Guide puny humans through Despot’s Game – a rogue-like tactics army battler. Equip your team and sacrifice them through procedural dungeons as you fight 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!

The action is fairly rapid so players need to be alert. Each level consists of a handful of rooms while each room has an enemy in it, the reward varies from being able to buy food, to humans or having events in them. You can also get free mutants on altars or fight against bosses. Random events happen after every level and sometimes within them in special rooms.

There are dozens of classes available such as Shooter, Medic, Fighter, Tank, Cultist, and a lot more. Having several units one of class, each with a different weapon grants them special abilities like having three cultists will let them summon a tentacle and so on.

The game is no cakewalk, the strategy nature of the game is obvious. In older RTS games like Rise of Nations, the action only exists in a smaller area. In Despot’s Game, after the battle the player simply selects the exit at the top of the arena to move to the next level.

The game also has a skill board which allows players to work toward higher level action. The section is called mutations for want of a name. To fill this out will take many hours of gaming.

This is the multiplayer “mode” of Despot’s Game. The leaderboard tracks wins and losses and ranks player accordingly.
