Honestly, when I read the name Vambrace: Cold Soul, I just assumed it was a game about vampires. To learn its a rogue lite fantasy adventure, well that has me intrigued as well. The game look like a lot of fun with some clever turn-based combat. Check it out below!
Headup and Devespresso Games invite you to explore the world of Vambrace: Cold Soul in a new series of trailers that showcase the roguelite fantasy-adventure’s unique mechanics. Feature #2 is all about the game’s turn-based combat system.
Once your party is assembled, you will embark on a dangerous expedition to the frozen surface of Icenaire. It is there you will meet different types of enemies in the form of wraiths, mad survivors, cultists, and the most dangerous of all – Shades. Each character is able to perform one action per turn; you choose between individually ranged attacks, defense, skip, and flourish attacks. The last option depends not just on the character’s class but also on your equipped relics.
