Despot's Game gets new gameplay trailer from E3 2021

Mutate your tiny humans and send them into battle in Despot's Game.


Despot’s Game, developed by Konfa Games, is a roguelike with a twist: it’s also an auto-battler! The newest gameplay trailer from the Guerrilla Collective Showcase during E3 2021 showed off weapons, the ability to mutate and upgrade your humans, and even introduced player-versus-player encounters. Take a look at the trailer below.

For those that don’t know, an auto-battler is a new type of genre where you kind of “set and forget” your characters and let the action unfold. Sure, you spend a lot of time upgrading units and positioning them just right, but once you hit the action button, it’s just down to how well you planned out your attack. The same holds true for Despot’s Game, which features a whole lot of unique weapons, mutations, and an importance on where you decide to place your humans.

One of the other exciting things to come out of the trailer is that Despot’s Game will have a player-versus-player feature. If your mutated humans can survive the labyrinth, you’ll come face-to-face with other players. The last team standing gets to leave the dungeon.

Despot’s Game is currently scheduled to release sometime in 2021. Add it to your wishlist via the Despot’s Game Steam page so you don’t miss it the moment it becomes available. There was more announced during the Guerrilla Collective Showcase, so take a time to look over everything on offer.
