Roll the Dice On a Fresh Indie Vision
Akupara Games has helped bring a lot of interesting indie titles to gamers of all stripes. I first discovered them with the release of Desert Child, a stylish little adventure. Today they’re celebrating their 5th Anniversary by announcing Astrea: Six-Sided Oracles. Developed by Little Leo Games, it’s a mix of high fantasy and next generation futurism. It’s slated to release sometime in 2022 for PC. Below is a great snapshot of how the game plays.
The galactic-gothic 2D strategy game combines the deck-building genre with RPG elements. Astrea innovates the deck-building genre by adding six-faced dice in place of single-effect cards. This allows for the emergence of the game’s core mechanic, where the player will need to tactfully balance between the Purification and Corruption of their foes and themself. As one of six characters paired with guardian Sentinels, players must defeat rooms of enemies or bosses to obtain upgrades in the form of new dice and character enhancements paired against dynamically changing gameplay as the climb progresses.
As if that Astrea news wasn’t exciting enough, we’ve got more to share from Akupara Games. In honor of their 5th anniversary, they’re having a massive sale on Steam. It lasts for the next several days, and offers up to 90% off a huge selection of great indie titles.
While I wish I had more news to share about Astrea today, you can find out more by staying tuned to HPP. In the meantime, be sure to check out Akupara’s anniversary sale while you still have the chance. And check out the sweet Astrea trailer below!
