Dark Tactical RPG The Last Spell Announced for PC, Mac, and Switch

CCCP have announced their “dark fantasy tactical RPG with rogue lite elements,” The Last Spell.

After a devastating war between mages devastated the world, a mysterious mist spreads along with foul monsters. You control a party of heroes attempting to defend one of these mages, to cast the eponymous last spell- one that will rid the world of the mist and monsters.

The Last Spell will launch 2020 for Windows PC & Mac (via Steam), and later on Nintendo Switch.

What if Final Fantasy Tactics and Dynasty Warriors had an illegitimate daughter?

The Last Spell is a turn-based tactical RPG immersed in roguelite mechanics in which you lead a team of hardened heroes to defend the last bastion of humanity against hordes of monsters.

A Dark Fantasy Tactical RPG with Roguelite Elements

This is the end. War and a bunch of crazy mages provoked The Cataclysm. A mysterious mist filled with hellish monsters enveloped most of the world. They said that those who entered the mist were killed, driven mad, or even turned into monstrous abonimations themselves. Only a few Havens keep up the fight against the Hordes of bloodthirsty monsters that come out at night from this strange purple mist.

Days were quiet and peaceful: they could take time to organize themselves, heal their wounds and search the surroundings for anything useful. But the nights… The mist thickened and from their bowels unleashes hordes of mutated monsters, craving for blood and magic.

In this glorious mix of pixel art and dark fantasy setting, you lead a group of hardened warriors whose only purpose in life is to desperately defend the last of the mages while they try to cast The Last Spell, and banish all magic from this world. And maybe save us all. Maybe.
