Playing cards are one of the fundamental standing stones of modern games. Even the almighty Nintendo has a history with the flimsy pieces of paper and plastic! For me, the numbered cards were a big part of my childhood not just because of my fleeting obsession with card tricks, but also because cards would be what we played when we were staying over at the grandparents or taken to the amazing, but not so sunny British seaside. Where rainy days were spent playing Go Fish, Rummy, and a little bit of blackjack (with no bets) as I got older. From my teenage years and right into my mid-20s, my interest in playing cards waned and I moved onto the also iconic world of trading cards, with games like Hearthstone, Magic The Gathering and even at one point in my younger teenage years … Duel Masters (Laugh it up, I know I sucked). But now, my interest in the classic 54 card deck has been piqued thanks to Taiwan based developers Dusklight Games again. The team at Dusklight has joined together with the awesome publisher Akupara Games to bring a new light to playing cards in video games with their new title Zoeti, that was announced earlier this month!
Zoeti puts us into the world of medieval Rogue-like combat, where we are equipped with a deck of cards that will be used to attack, defend and activate special abilities based on the cards we draw. Each hand will give us a set of cards which we will need to combine in various ways, such as pairs, royal flushes and straights. The more complex the grouping, the more powerful the result. But that isn’t all, as we will also be able to create powerful synergy moves with locals you meet on your journey or even upgrade and purchase new activities at vendors. However, not everybody you meet in this world of colourful characters can be trusted, and the world will be affected by your choices and can end a hot streak very quickly.
For now, this is all we have to say on Zoeti, but it is one we will be watching quite closely over the coming months as we eagerly await a release date for its expected window of 2023. Until then, you can add Zoeti to your Wishlist on Steam, where the Zoweti will inevitably be landing.
