Thea 2: The Shattering offers a unique blend of 4X turn strategy, RPG, survival — and an original card game with a dark fantasy setting — all inspired by Slavic mythology and culture. Players take on the role of gods, overseeing the actions of their tribe of followers, while navigating a procedurally-generated environment. They will decide on a favored play style and build on it during their adventure: they may wish to simply explore the world as nomads, take on all comers as a warlord-led army, or master the art of diplomacy; building alliances with other factions and trying to ensure the peaceful survival of their worshippers. An atmospheric musical score and moody visuals provide a perfect accompaniment to a carefully-crafted Slavic narrative.
Thea 2: The Shattering full release will be available on Steam at 24.99 USD/21.99 EUR/ 19.99 GBP.
