Focus Home Interactive have announced the release date for Passtech Games’ Early Access action-roguelite, Curse of the Dead Gods.
Delve into dangerous, ancient ruins and defy the malicious gods that control the dungeon. One of the game’s key mechanics revolves around corruption. Your character will gradually become more and more twisted by curses and dark powers as you descend further into the ruins. These curses can simultaneously grant powerful bonuses, and malignant debuffs.
You can find the release date trailer below.
Curse of the Dead Gods leaves Early Access for Windows PC via Steam on February 23rd, and launches the same day on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:
CURSE OF THE DEAD GODS
You seek untold riches, eternal life, divine powers – it leads to this accursed temple, a seemingly-infinite labyrinth of bottomless pits, deadly traps, and monsters.
USE WEAPONS, THE ENVIRONMENT, YOUR BRAINS AND SKILLS TO DEFEAT THE TEMPLE
Collect mystical Relics and an arsenal of weapons to make yourself unstoppable. Battle through hordes of enemies in dark, cavernous passages filled with traps and secrets of all sorts – fire-spewing statues, explosives, hidden spikes, and worse.
PLAY YOUR WAY
AND TURN CURSES TO YOUR ADVANTAGE
Corruption builds in you with every step – encourage or ignore it, but each powerful curse can be a double-edged sword.
GREED WILL KILL YOU
GREED WILL SAVE YOU
