Deckbuilding Roguelite Slay the Spire Leaves Early Access

Slay the Spire, the hit deckbuilding roguelite by Mega Crit Games, has just left Early Access.

The game entered Early Access back in November 2017, and has already managed to gain a large cult following. Choose one of three characters and fight your way through the procedurally generated Spire, collecting powerful relics and improving your deck along the way. The game is also packed with daily challenges and other modes to play. You can find the launch trailer above.

Just because Slay the Spire is out of Early Access that doesn’t mean that its completely “done” yet. The developers are promising continued support and new content in the near future. They are also looking at other platforms they can bring the game to.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

We fused card games and roguelikes together to make the best single player deckbuilder we could. Craft a unique deck, encounter bizarre creatures, discover relics of immense power, and Slay the Spire!

Key Features

  • Dynamic Deck Building: Choose your cards wisely! Discover hundreds of cards to add to your deck with each attempt at climbing the Spire. Select cards that work together to efficiently dispatch foes and reach the top.
  • An Ever-changing Spire: Whenever you embark on a journey up the Spire, the layout differs each time. Choose a risky or safe path, face different enemies, choose different cards, discover different relics, and even fight different bosses!
  • Powerful Relics to Discover: Powerful items known as relics can be found throughout the Spire. The effects of these relics can greatly enhance your deck through powerful interactions. But beware, obtaining a relic may cost you more than just gold…
