Ghotic Roguelike Deliverance & Reign Revealed

Written by Marcello TBL

Deliverance & Reign

One Up Plus, the indie dev behind DungeonTop and Defend the Rook has announced their new title called Deliverance & Reign. A new game that combines the elements of gothic battle and roguelike deckbuilding mechanics. In this game, players can choose to play as either Good or Evil, invading Alaric’s Castle or defending it as Alaric himself.

Deliverance & Reign as the name suggests offers two different game modes: Deliverance and Reign. Each mode has its unique features and feels like a separate game, with separate saves, progression, and achievements. Players can switch freely between modes at any point in the game.

Deliverance & Reign

Deliverance mode allows players to become a brave hero and assault Alaric’s castle, fighting through his horde of monsters to put an end to his reign of terror. There are four floors to conquer, each with its unique boss battle. Players must manage their strengths and weaknesses carefully, pick their class and starting cards, and choose when to retreat or brave forward. Those who defeat Alaric at his weakest will unlock Hell Layers, additional difficulty modifiers that challenge even the most hardcore players.

Reign mode, on the other hand, allows players to corrupt themselves and take control of the tyrant Alaric. They must protect their castle against a group of foolish heroes who are invading it. Players can forge a bond with one of the six malevolent factions, enslave a legion of minions, and distribute them across three different floors. Each boss battle is unique and requires a different approach to overcome.

Deliverance & Reign offers a giant variety of cards, play styles, and difficulty modifiers that challenge players of all levels. With its 6 classes, 25 weapons, 53 artifacts, 25 blessings, 40 enemy minions, 7 bosses, and 29 achievements, the game is the perfect entry into the roguelike deckbuilding genre.
