Fresh take on turn-based combat with cards.
Deep Sky Derelicts is an original combination of turn-based strategy and RPG game made by Snowhound Games and published by 1C Company. In a grim dystopian future, where mankind has scattered across the galaxy and the human society has split into two distinct classes, you are a poor stateless outcast forced to live off scraps from derelict alien stations and ships in the outer space, yet you dream of becoming a privileged citizen and living on the surface of a habitable planet, enjoying non-synthetic air, water and food. A fabled alien derelict ship somewhere within the Deep Sky sector of space is your voucher for a citizenship and a promise of cozy life on a hospitable planet. Build and control a squad of up to three mercenary characters and set on to explore derelict ships within your reach from the scavenger’s base.

Deep Sky Derelicts Review
Deep Sky Derelicts is a rougelike set in a deep space where, as the title suggests you explore derelict ships and loot them in a rougelike survival scenario. Searching the derelicts for loot and clues, you come across many friendly inhabitants and traders, but more often – various enemies. Challenge and defeat them in tactical turn-based fights, where randomly-drawn cards form your changing arsenal of combat actions, gain experience for yourself and your crew, loot dead bodies, resupply and upgrade once back at your base. The scavenger's home ship gives you the opportunity to heal and level-up your mercenaries, recruit new ones, equip them, upgrade their gear or recharge energy for life support during missions. The game carries an atmosphere and art style reminiscent of Darkest Dungeon, but leaves behind the narrator and the Lovecraft-inspired stress/sanity mechanic. If you happen to have heard of this game because of Darkest Dungeon I highly recommend it to you if you enjoyed DD. It's got similarities but just enough difference to be refreshing and not feel repetitive.
