Publisher Dangen Entertainment and developers Lunic Games and Danilo Domingues have dropped the release date trailer for isometric tactical roguelite Evertried, which will launch on October 21, 2021 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for $19.99. Preorders for Evertried will begin on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One on September 22. The game was announced back in July, and you can go to Steam to try out a demo.
Evertried takes place in the afterlife, where a warrior is attempting to climb a tower that is divided into 50 floors across five areas. Combat is turn-based, but the enemies move when you do, increasing the strategic element. While you can play as slowly as you like, the game actually punishes you for that, because you build a Focus Level for acting fast that helps you receive currency and special powers called modifiers. In battle, you can move, attack, use skills, lure enemies into traps, or make strategic use of a dash that lets you pass through obstacles. A challenging boss appears at the end of each area, and if you die, you have to start over from the beginning. However, your mastery of skills will be retained for the next run. Meanwhile, each area of the tower will have a shop where you can buy health recovery, skills, and modifiers.
If you like tactics games (and if you do, you oughta check out the new Shining Force and Project Triangle Strategy), and you have a stomach for roguelikes and roguelites, then you can strap in and wait for the October release date of Evertried.
