Roguelike Vambrace: Cold Soul Available Now
Vambrace: Cold Soul is now available for purchase on Steam and Good Old Games (GoG). While the game has only been out for about 24 hours, it is already getting rave reviews. During the first week of its release, players who buy the game will receive a 10% discount.
The rougelike adventure tale takes place in the frozen town of Icenaire. The town has been cursed by the King of Shades, barricaded behind an enchanted frost wall; the town is now overrun with wraiths. Players take the role of Evelia Lyric, the only person able to enter Icenaire since it has been overtaken.
Delearch is the main hub of the game, a city below Icenaire. Here, Icenaire's former inhabitants struggle for survival as the King of Shades' power continues to grow. Now living in the former dwarven kingdom are drow, elves, humans, foxier, and, of course, dwarves.
Each race has their own goals, locations to explore and side quests that can be taken up. Completing side quests gives you different attire for Evelia, including lingerie and a Sherlock inspired piece.
Featuring turn-based combat with 10 separate classes, Vambrace is steeped in strategy. With traps, savage enemies, limited supply capacity, and limited money, battles can be ruthless in the beginning. Players should take care to hire the best combatants for their teams, otherwise, they all may perish.
While Vambrace is only released on Steam and GoG at the moment, a console release for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is planned for the third quarter of 2019. Check out our guide to not dying for some beginner tips.
