Vambrace: Cold Soul is a strategic roguelike adventure, set in a beautiful anime universe. Imagine a mashup of Faster Than Light and Darkest Dungeon and you're close. If you're a fan of one of those or likes strategic or story-rich games in general, it should suit perfectly. :)

(But be prepared: Vambrace is not a walk in the park but rather difficult!)


Steam description:

The King of Shades has cursed the great city of Icenaire. Now cast under a permanent blight of frost fall, its former residents have returned from the dead as mad Wraiths. Survivors take refuge deep underground where they lead a desperate campaign against this unearthly power. Woefully outmatched, they are forced into hiding as the King of Shades amasses an army of the undead above them. One fateful day, a mysterious stranger appears in the city with an enchanted vambrace. She may now be their only hope…

You are Evelia Lyric, bearer of the Aetherbrace and the only human capable of entering Icenaire. The survivors now look to you as their best hope against the King of Shades. Only one problem...you’re woefully outmatched, and survival is not guaranteed.

To succeed in Vambrace, you must choose perceptive party leaders, camp to recuperate, navigate strange encounters, and survive deadly combat. Will you scavenge for supplies to sell or use them to craft new items for your next expedition? The surface of Icenaire is cold and unforgiving. So, prepare your party well before departing...lest you join the cursed city's undead. The difference between life and undeath all comes down to good planning and smart tactics!
