About Rogue Empire: The Prelude

Rogue Empire, The Prelude is the prequel to Rogue Empire, an upcoming Roguelike game with a rich epic story with many twists!

Some of the distinct features you can expect in Rogue Empire, The Prelude:

  • A beautifully illustrated story.
  • An innovative talent system that borrows concepts of TCG's (Trading Card Games)!
  • A taste of the Warrior class and Human Race.
  • Exciting boss fights with fun and cool mechanics!

The prelude is a short version of the game telling the story of a warrior named Eghoss in search of a mythical artifact.

This seemingly simple adventure will let any one dive into the world of Ethistos and preface the grand adventure to come. Some answers about the arrival of a mysterious Rogue Empire will be answered but much more questions will appear along Eghoss adventure.

It is/will be also worth noticing the prelude is a complete game by it self only not so big in length and with a fixed character.

Rogue Empire got greenlit! So thanks a lot for the support!

Game instructions

You have an in game tutorial system to help you along and a manual (esc -> manual), but I will give you some pointers here for successful adventure:

  • The game is turn based, so think carefully before acting. Sometimes it is better to wait for the enemy to come close or even run than go in Leeroy style!
  • The character is a warrior and can feel fairly tanky later in the game. This can let to overconfidence. Try to have always 50% + hp.
  • 'R'resting is your friend. Try to do it in small rooms and close the door.
  • Don't underestimate the power of wands to get out of some sticky situations.
  • For the moment when going to another level monsters won't follow. This might change in the future... or not ;)
  • You might notice small blue souls flying around the level, they hit you at where the next level is.
