Crimson Deep

Obscuria

Main Idea

Crimson Deep is a game about overcoming oneself, moral choice and how to save the world, being completely helpless in the face of all the troubles of this world.

Main Description

Crimson Deep is a card rogue-lite set in a dark fantasy universe with a Scandinavian setting. Throughout the entire game, the player needs to competently assemble a deck, fight monsters and help people in trouble, only occasionally content with moments of relaxation in taverns and shops.

You have to play as Aurora - a girl whose village was attacked by the Völvas, who were once revered seers, but who became terrible witches. They stole the souls of the villagers, among whom was the heroine's husband. For his salvation, she will go to their lair.

The game is largely inspired by the genre's "progenitor" - Slay the Spire - but it also shows the handwriting of our other inspirations, from Darkest Dungeon and Don't Starve to the stories of Howard Phillips Lovecraft.
