Epic Games Store: 15 Days of Free Games – 29th December 2020

Solitairica

I like card games. I really like Solitaire (and similar games like Freecell). I also like rogue-like (ugh) dungeon crawlers. So every time I see one that combines both of those, I’m a happy man. Slay the Spire is still probably the best dungeon crawling card game around, but I’m always in the market for a new one. And by “new” I mean “new to EGS” since this came out in 2016 on Steam.

Solitairica takes a good old-fashioned turn-based card game and adds in procedurally generated enemies, items and magic. I haven’t played it, but it has an 84% positive rating on Steam, which is pretty damn high for a card game. It kind of looks a bit like Dicey Dungeons too, which is cute. My one question is why the developers chose to use Unreal Engine for a simple card game? Seems like tech overkill. But hey, you do you, guys. You do you 😀

Here’s the link to my 15 Days of Free Games hub post for the full list!
