Solo developer Clockwork Pile has released a new demo and gameplay trailer for Shardpunk: Verminfall, an upcoming mix of strategy, RPG, and resource management in which players will try to outrun the rat horde and survive another day in the war-torn steampunk world.
The new demo for Shardpunk: Verminfall is now available on Steam and GOG. It includes one full campaign mission and showcases a variety of never before seen enemies and combat mechanics, more character progression options, and numerous quality-of-life improvements suggested by the players during the extensive community playtests.
- XCOM meets Darkest Dungeon as Shardpunk: Verminfall combines turn-based tactical battles with the hard choices made at the bunker
- Grid-based levels that are open for exploration and full of tactical possibilities while you run from the endless hordes of rats
- A motley crew of characters to build your team, each one with unique abilities, equipment, perks, and shortcomings that affect their mates
The developer also updated the release window for the game to the first quarter of 2023. This extra time will allow him to make a better, more balanced, and optimized experience by focusing mostly on playtesting and tweaking. Players can participate in this process on the developer’s Discord channel.
