Vambrace: Cold Soul – A Story-Driven Roguelike Fantasy Adventure With Stunning Hand-Illustrated Graphics

Devespresso and Headup join forces for the release of Devespresso’s newest single-player adventure Vambrace: Cold Soul. The roguelike fantasy adventure focusses on rich storytelling and deep strategy and will come to PC and Mac on 25th April, with Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One following in Q3 2019.

Vambrace: Cold Soul follows Devespresso Games’ Korean indie horror hit The Coma: Recut. Coma represents a major departure from the survival adventure mechanics of their previous title. For Vambrace, the team instead reveals a gothic fantasy tale from the minds of Minho Kim and T.L. Riven. The game features multi-class party building mechanics, punishing roguelike expeditions, and an immersive narrative with high replayability. Vambrace also boasts Minho’s signature hand-illustrated graphics that is sure to please 2D and retro game enthusiasts.

You play as Evelia Lyric, bearer of the Aetherbrace and the only human capable of entering the cursed city of Icenaire. You must choose party members who will lend their unique strengths to your cause. Embark on expeditions and use perceptive allies to avoid traps and strange encounters. Leverage the strengths of fighters and magic wielders to survive deadly combat. Stock well and discover paths that will allow you precious time to recuperate in camps. The surface of Icenaire is cold and unforgiving, so you will need to use every advantage you can muster to survive!

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
