The Steam Game Festival is really starting out with a bang. There’s tons of great games included, with some really cool new demos for upcoming adventures. One such adventure is being published by the awesome folks from The Arcade Crew. In conjunction with CCCP they are bringing a rogue RPG that has you fight against a monstrous mist, called The Last Spell. Oh and did I mention the mist literally spawns monsters? Yea, it’s that sort of game.

The Last Spell | Combat

As a fan of both rogue and RPG genres, The Last Spell has my interest. Especially since it also apparently features some tower defense elements. But don’t just take my word for it, you can try the demo yourself on Steam this week! To discover more details about this upcoming hybrid strategy game, just check out the full press release below!

PARIS (June 15, 2020) – Publisher The Arcade Crew and developer CCCP today announced their partnership in support of The Last Spell, a PC-bound, arcade-paced fight to save humanity through tactical RPG battles paired with roguelite elements. In celebration of the announcement, The Last Spell’s first-ever demo will welcome strategists to the battlefield as part of the Steam Game Festival starting tomorrow until June 22.

The Last Spell | Defense

The Last Spell challenges players to master deeply rewarding combat as they lead a squad of hardened heroes defending the world’s remaining Haven. Faced with hordes of relentless monsters charging from a mysterious, toxic mist enveloping the world, commanders must strategically leverage each warrior to survive brutal, all-out onslaughts against their sanctuary while improving defenses and upgrading the buildings behind them. Witness the daunting scale of the battles ahead in The Last Spell’s new trailer.

Parties are unrestrained by classes, allowing players extensive control as they build unstoppable fighters through versatile weapons, perks, and skills. The Last Spell’s action remains snappy despite its depth in party management and optimization; warriors can focus on slaying their unending foes instead of pouring over spreadsheets or volumes of narration.

Surviving The Last Spell’s flood of varied enemies is difficult, but the challenge never feels unfair or insurmountable, and a strong sense of progression keeps defeat from feeling like failure. Should a party succumb to the mist’s hellish creatures, jumping into a new round takes seconds, and players return to the frontlines with a better understanding of how to avoid past blunders. Each session brings fresh trials through procedurally generated enemy waves along with different weapons and gear loadouts, making The Last Spell feel like a true test of a strategist’s ability to adapt and overcome anything.

The Last Spell | Swarm

To keep an eye on The Last Spell’s swarming beasts, set a perimeter up around the game’s official Haven, get the latest intel through CCCP’s discord, and get a preemptive strike on @TheArcadeCrew, @deadingames and @LeCCCP’s follow buttons on Twitter.
