Yarrow Games and Versus Evil have announced the upcoming launch of their new game, Tamarak Trail, a narrative-driven roguelike set to be released in Q2 2023 on PC. The turn-based dice-rolling game invites players to customize dice with powerful abilities and explore a dangerous forest filled with events and monsters.
As a member of the secret society named Sturgeon Lodge, players must piece together the mystery of a decaying earth, hunt down the source of corruption, and put a stop to it at all costs. The game offers three characters to choose from, each with unique skills and abilities, and procedurally generated paths that create various possibilities and strategies for every playthrough.
The game’s art direction draws inspiration from the Canadian landscape painters of the 1920s and illustrator Ivan Bilibin, while its gameplay mechanics are influenced by innovative titles such as Dicey Dungeons and Peglin. Tamarak Trail promises to deliver a solid roguelite experience to fans of the genre and excite deck-builder fans with its deeply layered and innovative gameplay mechanics.
