Here is a look at some 30 minutes of Shadowplay: Metropolis Foe gameplay from developer 42 Foundation. The gameplay shows off some of the cyberpunk themed, deck building action. You can grab the game for just £4.67 on Steam right now which we think is a steal.
Shadowplay: Metropolis Foe is a deck-building rogue-like card game set in Stary City, a vibrant metropolis full of dangers and adventures. Choose between 8 characters, each with different strengths and powers. Build a deck that adapts to your playstyle choosing skills, attacks, and armor cards. Once in combat, you’ll have companions by your side whose skills and cards you can borrow to complement yours. Think carefully about every move because, in the world of Shadowplay, a single decision can make the difference between victory and defeat!
Customize your deck and crush every foe
Choose between more than 200 cards to assemble a customized deck that fits your play style like a glove (or a pair of knuckle dusters)! Level up your character as you move forward, living random encounters that will force you to make difficult decisions. The world of ShadowPlay changes and evolves continually – you will never play the same game twice.
A deep combat system where your decisions matters
Like flies getting attracted to light, in Star City you’ll find a high concentration of street thugs, gangsters, security companies and other corpo agents whose only reason to live is gaining more and more power. As a rebel organization, you’ll face multiple enemy threats from each faction — and they won’t go easy on you, so make sure to adapt your combat strategy if you want to survive one more day. Identify their strenghts and take advantage of each weak point they have.
A thrilling story in Cyber City
The single-player story mode will take you to Star City – a restless cyberpunk metropolis that never sleeps, an unforgiving place that doesn’t care if you live or die. Fight your way up through the ranks of the city, from street thugs to elite agents, to unveil the darkest secrets of this cyberpunk setting. Three companions will help you in every battle on your way to the top. You better be prepared to make difficult decisions…
