Although Latvia will not be receiving finals glory this year in Eurovision, Latvian indie developer Soaphog are set to release an interesting looking dungeon crawler Rezrog on 1 June 2017.
Journey to the land of Rezrog where the dungeons are aplenty and quests abundant set in a very stylish and original world. Overall the game has a definite tabletop feel, with characters looking like they are made from plastic and the surrounding environment cardboard cut-outs.
In Reznog, you control a hero who must enter dungeon levels that are randomly generated, meaning you will not encounter the same adventure twice. Although the developers advertise that this game is focussed upon permadeath (meaning once you die, you don’t come back), in Rezrog when your hero is defeated, she/he is imprisoned with all their items. You have a band of heroes to work with, so you have a chance to free them. If all of your heroes are caught however it is game over.
This means you shouldn’t be putting all your dragon eggs in one basket as you may need to rely on your weakest link to rescue the rest of your team.
While the main draw card at this point appears to be the graphics, Rezrog promises 100 dungeon levels across 10 different environments. Your hero can learn 60 different skills and partake in turn-based battle against 120 enemy types, and with seven character classes each with the given strengths and weaknesses, this game has potential to be a fun little dungeon crawler.
Reznog will be available for PC, Mac and Linux. Check out the teaser trailer below:
