In Rise of the Slime, you’ll experience: 

  • Turn-based combat alongside real-time exploration, offering a unique mix of roguelike and deckbuilder. 
  • Positional mechanics, matching your wits against enemies. Strategically quick step, push, and flip behind enemies to gain the advantage in combat. Use your cards wisely!
  • A visually appealing art style, with striking, colorful characters, cards and environments.
  • Extensive replay value with gameplay mutators, shifting routes and hundreds of deck build variations (100 magical cards at launch!). Each playthrough of Rise of the Slime is different!

Developed independently by one-man indie studio, Maris Bunkovsky of Bunkovsky Games, Rise of the Slime gives life to the creator’s imagination and dreams, through his illustration and game design.
