The Steam Game Festival took place this spring from February 3 to 9, 2021. During the event, many players had the opportunity to play the demo of Roguebook, a roguelike deck creator from Abrakam Entertainment and NACON, developed with the help of Richard Garfield, the creator of Magic: The Gathering.
To give a glimpse of the backstage of the demo, the developers are now posting some stats on what players achieved during the event. A total of 14,697 players played Roguebooks over the seven days of the Steam Game Festival. They made more than 42,000 attempts and fought nearly 300,000 fights. The deadliest opponent was “Soul Eater”, while over eight thousand “Llamacorns” became friends. In the week of the Steam Game Festival, 470 players beat the Roguebook and 23,372 chapters were completed.
Roguebook is a roguelike deck builder that plays in the magical world of Faeria. Players must assemble a team of two of the four available heroes and compete in turn-based tactical battles against rogue book legends. The Roguebook is a damned book, whose very existence threatens all living things. Players must search the map to uncover its secrets, assign cards with gems and increase the abilities of heroes using the innovative tower deck system.
All players who pre-ordered Roguebook can continue to experience the adventures with the beta version outside of the Steam Game Festival. Additionally, upon the release of the game, they will receive an exclusive outfit for each of their heroes.
Roguebook will be released on June 24, 2021 on PC (Steam) and later on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
