Vast Procedural Overworld Adventure
Players will traverse an immense overworld map, choosing their heading and defining their own adventure as they embark upon a journey across a vast and varied wasteland in a perilous hunt for resources critical to the survival of their home settlement.
Multi-Character Deck-Driven Combat
The draw of cards during combat presents new strategic options at every turn, challenging the player to take advantage of available card synergies by combining the unique abilities and the positional opportunities of their three heroes.
Recurrent Tactical Optimisation
At any time between combat encounters, the player has the option of reassigning resources across their heroes and interchanging items and weapons in order to maximize the effectiveness of their party. Discovering one new Epic weapon could cause the player to rethink their entire strategy!
Trials of Fire also features an extensive range of narrative ‘judgement’ encounters where the player is challenged to weigh moral dilemmas in a lawless world, assuming the roles of judge, jury and (often) executioner.
Whatboy Games was founded to make amazing indie games, focused on repeatable gameplay loops with a AAA level of gameplay polish. Our first title, Trials of Fire, stays true to this philosophy by offering exciting new combat mechanics wrapped up in a procedural, player driven story set within an original fantasy world.
