Belgian game developer Abrakam announced a new roguelike deck-builder game titled Roguebook. Furthermore, it’s been designed with the help of Magic: The Gathering creator Richard Garfield. Roguebook is a new roguelike deck-builder similar where players will progress through a dungeon and build up a deck of cards that will serve as the basis for the character’s strength and powers. Players begin with two heroes and build a deck of powers around them. If both heroes die, players must start over from the beginning. As players traverse an overworld, they'll fight more enemies, earn more cards based on their defeated foe, and eventually craft a powerful deck that suits their needs.

In addition to Roguebook, Nacon announced a second roguelike called Rogue Lords developed by Cyanide and Leikir. In addition to Roguebook, Nacon revealed the first look gameplay for Werewolf: The Apocalypse, and a cinematic trailer for Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong. Note, Swansong is a separate project from Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2. For more from today’s Nacon Connect, check out IGN. [poilib element="accentDivider"] Matt Kim is a reporter for IGN.
