Trials of Fire

Trials of Fire is a single-player, turn-based, deck-building strategy title set in a ruined world that's just been released off of Steam's Early Access. In it, players explore the world that features lots of loot and procedural systems that promise to "make every adventure unique."

“Coming out of early access after almost two years of full-time development is an incredible achievement for any indie team,” says Dax Ginn, former head of Marketing and PR for the Batman: Arkham series, and co-Founder and Studio Director of Whatboy Games. “We have faced down a lot of trials of our own during the creation of this game, but one thing is for sure - there is no way that we would be in this position without the support and input of the community that has emerged around Trials of Fire. The suggestions and critique from the thousands of players who have joined us on this adventure have shaped the game into something we can all be very proud of and we look forward to welcoming many more players into the world of Ashe.”

“We’re very proud to have made it to this point with the help of our Early Access supporters,” says Adam Doherty, former Lead Gameplay Programmer for the Batman: Arkham series, and co-Founder and Game Director of Whatboy Games. “I really hope new players will have as much fun exploring the glasslands and different gameplay possibilities!”

Trials of Fire will have players engage their foes in positional combat that will allow players to customize their decks by scavenging what they can. By doing this, they will build up a party that should hopefully be able to take on all comers, but sooner or later they will surely die in very painful ways while cursing your name and strategic incompetence. 

Speaking of incompetence, it would be the very height of it should I not warn you that the current price of the game ($14.39 at 10% off) will only last until April 16. Upon that fateful day the price will be increased to $19.99 as both the launch discount expiring, and the 1.0 price increase will come into effect, so if you are interested in this game you should act fast, savvy?
