It isn’t the first time we’ve seen a card-based roguelike put players in the shoes of the evil villain rather than the heroes. We’ve actually seen this exact trope play out in Rogue Lords. However, we welcome these tropes with open arms. Developed by Undead Fox and published by Long Tale Games, Dark Lord is a narrative card-based roguelike announced for PC. The game is still in development and a release date has yet to be announced. Players eager to play the game can do so with a playable demo.
Dark Lord will be available on PCs via Steam

Dark Lord is a card-based roguelike RPG filled with strategy, adventure, and sardonic wit.

Stretch your tendrils of darkness across new lands, exercise your cunning in balancing political intrigues as well as military might. Fortify your stronghold, and revel in a narrative that’s endlessly unfolding, drenched in layers of deliciously dark humor.
