Rogue Lords looks like Slay The Spire spliced with a Tim Burton movie

Better the Devil you know.

What if Tim Burton made Slay The Spire? It might look like Rogue Lords.

Rogue Lords is a new tactical roguelike game in which you play as the Devil, who alongside a party of evil icons including Dracula, Bloody Mary and the Headless Horseman, take on mortal enemies across a range of battles.

The trailer below runs through how it all works: it's turn-based, strategic, and you have a health pool that remains persistent throughout your run. There are some cool ideas here, such as the Devil's ability to trigger a superpower (the appropriately-named Devil Mode) that lets you tweak the user interface - mess with an enemy's health bar, for example.

Rogue Lords is the work of Leikir Studio (Isbarah, Wondershot),and Cyanide Studio (Space Hulk: Tactics, Call of Cthulhu, the Styx games). It's due out at some point in 2021 on PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
