May 22, 2019 – Headup and Devespresso Games invite you to explore the world of Vambrace: Cold Soul in a new series of trailers that showcase the roguelite fantasy-adventure’s unique mechanics. Feature #2 is all about the game's turn-based combat system.

 

Once your party is assembled, you will embark on a dangerous expedition to the frozen surface of Icenaire. It is there you will meet different types of enemies in the form of wraiths, mad survivors, cultists, and the most dangerous of all - Shades. Each character is able to perform one action per turn; you choose between individually ranged attacks, defense, skip, and flourish attacks. The last option depends not just on the character's class but also on your equipped relics.

Our 3-part feature will propel you on a journey filled with memorable characters, brutal challenges, and deep strategy. Stay tuned for the 3rd and last feature video on surviving in Icenaire!

About Vambrace: Cold Soul

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.

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. You may be Icenaire's only hope…
