This is Niche Spotlight. In this column, we regularly introduce new games to our fans, so please leave feedback and let us know if there’s a game you want us to cover!

Today’s Spotlight is One Step From Eden, a deckbuilding action-roguelite by Thomas Moon Kang, Humble Bundle, and Maple Whispering Limited.

Inspired by the Mega Man Battle Network series, One Step From Eden tasks players with reaching Eden by fighting through a series of procedurally generated encounters.

The game features nine playable characters, hundreds of cards, and over one hundred items that can further modify your playstyle. There are also branching paths depending on who you execute, and who you decide to show mercy.

One Step From Eden includes full Steam Workshop integration for extra replayability, and players can take along a co-op partner. You can find the launch trailer below.

One Step From Eden is available on Windows PC, Linux, Mac (all via Steam), and Nintendo Switch for $19.99.

You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:

Eden is the last shining beacon of hope in a bleak post-war world.

Can you make it to Eden or will your destruction be imminent?
