Slay the Spire artwork for the Defect

Slay the Spire is quite an interesting combination of turn-based strategy and rogue-like progression systems, with a couple of card game mechanics thrown into the mix to help spice things up. A relatively simple concept, but given the sheer variety of playstyles and combinations on offer, it is one that I found to be rather irresistible!

With that in mind, I am very happy to announce that Slay the Spire has now not only released from Steam Early Access, but that it has done so alongside overwhelmingly positive reviews! If you're wondering why that is the case, as well as what Slay the Spire even has to offer, allow me to share with you the launch trailer. Have a gander:

Given my tone so far I'm sure this will come as a massive surprise, but I would highly recommend you check out Slay the Spire, even if you're not planning on buying it right now. It has kept me entertained for nearly a hundred hours, and with the recent addition of Steam Workshop support, chances are that number will soon enough be doubled. So if you're even remotely interested in strategy or card games, I'd say that Slay the Spire is well worth a closer look.

You can learn more about it, as well as grab yourself a copy, by heading over to either Steam or the official website. Have fun!
