Poker Quest Early Access

Poker Quest is now in Early Access on Steam, offering a card-based roguelite for Windows and macOS. While card mechanics are now commonplace in such games, the unusual twist here is the use of playing cards. The game has been undergoing beta testing, and Playsaurus is moving it along to the next stage of development. Here's an Early Access Trailer and here's the deal:
Poker Quest is a new roguelike card battler where you progress through a world full of monsters, using a standard deck of playing cards (like the "Queen of Spades") with magical properties to activate your gear in combat. The game offers a wide variety of playable heroes, each specializing in different strategies that change the way you play.

Choose your hero, and march forward through a diverse, procedurally generated, high-fantasy world. Each of the 15 playable heroes comes with unique gear and abilities, providing many different play styles. In combat, bigger and better hands trigger stronger abilities. Discover hundreds of equips, events, abilities, and monsters.
