The Cards Will Tell

David Moralejo Sánchez, the creator of Himno and Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator, has announced a new project. It's called Little Dungeon Stories and it's a blend of roguelike mechanics and card-based gameplay. Fans of ReignsEnter the Gungeon, and The Binding of Isaac, take note. You'll be able to grab it on PC this December, with a console release following at some point in the future.

Little Dungeon Stories has a pretty standard setup as narratives go. You are an adventurer who has heard that there's an unfathomably valuable treasure hidden in a crypt. Being an adventurer, you decide to "adventure" your way over there and see what you can dig up. Naturally, lots of adventurers have tried to infiltrate the crypt before you and none of them have succeeded. You'll have to navigate the crypt's many dangers in search of the treasure. Check out the trailer for Little Dungeon Stories below:

The titular dungeon in Little Dungeon Stories boasts five floors, each with its own items, monsters, and traps to overcome. The game revolves around keeping an eye on four stats: Health, Energy, Humanity, and Money. There are, of course, lots of different equipment and power-up items to find, as well as plenty of shopkeepers to meet, status effects to contend with, and character classes to unlock and use on subsequent runs. You'll also be able to check the Card Gallery, which will show you which cards you've unlocked so far and which ones you have yet to obtain.

Little Dungeon Stories lands on PC via Steam on December 6th. The game will also be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch "this winter", according to a press release. We don't have a concrete console release date for it yet, but you can wishlist it right now on Steam if you'd like to.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
