Publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment and developer Shiny Shoe announce a closed
beta test is underway for Monster Train
, their upcoming deck-building
game set on a train to Hell. Testing will run until March 19th, and includes
both single-player and multiplayer modes. If you're interested, there's still a
chance to get invited by registering on the
Monster Train Website
. Here's a
refresher on the game:
Hell has frozen over, and itís up to you to protect
the last Pyre from the forces of Heaven to make the underworld burn once more.
Monster Train adds an extra strategic element to roguelike deck-builders with
three vertical play fields that must be defended at a time. Build a deck of
spells and minions from over 200 cards, and position your champions on each
level to protect the train and your Pyre from invaders. With five clans to
combine and fight for, challenging enemies to balance your deck against, and
multiple routes to take through Hell, no playthrough is ever the same.
Monster Trainís unique time-based online multiplayer mode "Hell Rush" lets up to
eight players compete against one another in time-based challenges for an
exciting experience under intense pressure. Create your own custom challenges
and share them with the world to see who can top the leaderboards.
