Developer Erabit officially released the deck-building roguelike game Indies’ Lies on PC via Steam after being in early access for a while. Previous purchasers can update to the official version at no added cost. The game first launched for mobile in September 2021.
Indies’ Lies is a deck-building card game with roguelike elements. Randomly generated maps, a variety of story content, a rich and varied innate system, a cleverly designed companion system, a surprising rune system, and hundreds of cards combine to offer a different adventure each time you play.
Players step into Mekaa, a world caught in the clashes of Gods. By collecting clues for each character, you can unlock story mode and dive into their quests, whether it is chasing a lost love, fighting the Seven Nightmares, or finding the culprit behind Mekaa’s fall into this dark frenzy.
Compared to the Early Access version, both the innate ability system and the rune fusion system have undergone a complete change. In addition to major changes to the specifications of professions and natural gifts, new special events are also likely to appear. Furthermore, new DLC content will be implemented, and three types of characters will be available from the new professions and knights.
