Hi all!

This is my first time posting to this community. I'm posting about Poker Quest. I'm one of the developers of Clicker Heroes (an incremental game), and I have decided to COMPLETELY change course and make a hardcore, perma-death roguelike. Poker Quest is available to play here: https://playsaurus.com/PokerQuest.html

You traverse a high-fantasy landscape, while fighting monsters using a hand of playing cards (Ace, King, Queen, etc.) to activate your items. You draw cards from the same deck as the enemy, and they use their cards against you.

Poker Quest is written in Haxe, and is compiled to HTML5. I recommend using Chrome or IE. It works in other browsers but you may encounter some issues. Firefox has more trouble than the rest.

It's getting close to being complete in terms of features and balance, the art and UI will take a while to finish, and I want to add a LOT of new heroes at some point.

I would love to hear the community's feedback, particularly about the first-time experience (tutorial), game balance, any usability issues, and any bugs.

Hi Fragsworth,

I played your game and recorded my thoughts:

Thanks for the footage! It really helps a lot. As for your comment about mobile, we'll do it if there is enough demand for the game once it's launched on Steam.

I remember playing Poker Quest on kong. I love this kind of innovative games. But it felt too punishing with most characters.
I see you've added colors to your art. Cool!
Still getting my ass kicked though. And still runs as sloooow as I remember on kong. A game like this should run smooth like butter, even on a toaster like my computer.
I hope you find success (you might want to switch to an engine with better perf). I wish there were more original games like this instead of the endless dump of copies we see nowadays.
