The Last Spell Now on Steam Early Access
Publisher The Arcade Crew and developer Ishtar Games have released the Steam Early Access version of tactical RPG The Last Spell. The Early Access version is available for $19.99, with a 10% launch discount on offer until June 17, 2021. Players currently have access to the first twelve in-game days as well as the first boss fight. Should players defeat the boss, they can then restart with new difficulty modifiers designed to encourage replayability. The full version is expected to launch in around a year.
The Last Spell takes place in a world decimated by a monster-creating mist that plagues the land. The last remnants of humanity are backed into a corner and players are tasked with defending the last of the mages as they prepare a spell that will banish all magic from the world. The game features a day-night cycle where players use the daytime to build defences, set traps, or train up replacements to lost forces before fending off a night assault of hundreds of enemy creatures.
