Richard Garfield’s ‘ROGUEBOOK’ Steam Festival & Pre-order Trailer

2 min read

The free demo of the roguelike deckbuilder is available until February 9 and is now open for preorder

The first chapter of the Roguebook adventure is now being written: NACON and Abrakam Entertainment are pleased to announce that, for the Steam Festival, the free demo of the roguelike deckbuilder will be available exclusively from February 3 to 9, 2021.

Developed by Abrakam Entertainment, the developers of Faeria, and co-designed by Richard Garfield, the creator of Magic: The Gathering™, Roguebook takes place in the enchanted world of Faeria. In the game, players choose 2 heroes amongst the 4 available and form a team to take on the legends of the Roguebook, a cursed book whose existence threatens all living creatures.

The free demo will give players the chance to explore the subtleties of Roguebook’s gameplay, such as inserting gems to upgrade the cards in your deck, or exploring the world through its ingenious inkwell system, not to mention the concept of the Tower Deck, which reinvents deckbuilding. With this disruptive game system, Roguebook players will want to collect lots of cards in order to unlock new skills for their pair of heroes and create explosive synergies!
By preordering Roguebook, players will be able to continue their adventure in the malevolent book after the Steam Game Festival, and will be rid of the Doomed Coin, an artefact that limits the player’s progress. Plus, when the game is released, they will receive an exclusive outfit for each of their heroes.

There will be lots of streams throughout the Steam Game Festival, with the first including special guest Richard Garfield on Wednesday February 3 at 10 pm CET (1 pm PT). Check out the Roguebook Facebook and Twitter pages for the broadcast schedule.
