In Lord of Dice, players navigate a tactical battle grid using a team of heroes known as Dicers. Each Dicer has unique stats and abilities players can utilize to to defeat monsters and adapt to any situation. Landing on an enemy occupied space triggers a Dice Battle — a risky move that can greatly alter the tide of battle. Featuring more than 200 collectible Dicers, players can experiment with different party builds until they find the right balance that matches their playstyle.
Lord of Dice uses a stunning hand-drawn visuals and a compelling story inspired by Japanese anime to immerse players in a rich fantasy world. Players who want to break out of the story can take the game online and challenge other players in intense player-vs-player battles or try and complete brutal raids and tough daily challenges. It is the first title from NGEL Games, a studio founded by world champions of the Guild Wars competitive circuit, who set out to develop a game that they would want to play.
“Lord of Dice represents a unique fusion of gameplay styles that has never been seen before,” says Whon Namkoong and Kyehyun Cho, joint CEOs of Kakao Games “After being labeled one of the hottest RPGs in Asia, we knew we had to work with NGEL Games to help Lord of Dice grow and achieve global reach.”
