This isometric, turn-based tactical game with roguelike deckbuilding and settlement-building elements is set in the eerie and cursed bayou of the deep south.

In Toads of the Bayou, you can expand your toad population, create a powerful deck, and use strategic grid-based combat to defend your settlement.

The goal is to establish your place in this spooky environment and thrive against the Baron’s evil forces.

Baron Samedi, a spirit of the dead, has tricked you and your group of wandering toads who were looking for a place to settle and thrive, by trapping them in the cursed bayou and forcing them to face the evil that inhabits it. Determined to overcome the dreadful Baron Samedi, the toads must band together to defeat his waves of minions and build a settlement within the bayou.
