To stop the annihilation of their charmingly dangerous and violent world, an offbeat assemblage of adventurers seek the Nukropolis to slay the fiend responsible for this crisis: The Uberlich.
Turns will be taken. Hands will be dealt. And legends will be born (or die horribly due to poor card strategies).
The Meteorfall deck consists of:
- Journeys, the original deck-building game in the vein of Dominion and Dream Quest.
- Krumit's Tale, a dungeon exploration spin-off featuring a unique, tile-based, grid system for exploration and combat.
- Artifacts & Escapades, the upcoming third title inspired by Slay the Spire and Hades
- Healing Shiv: Certain attacks and spells heal the user as they harm their targets.
- Confusion Fu: Chickenburn's deck revolves around triggering the Pickaxe accessory with basic attacks, turning him into either a Walking Armory or an encumbered packrat.
- Discard and Draw: One of the in-game events has the player encounter a witch who offers to transmute one of their cards (chosen at random) into a different random card.
- Flavor Text: Each character has a small, oftentimes humorous, blurb when their portrait is clicked on.
- Joke Item: The standard Attack card which is expensive and suboptimal. The upgrades that can be bought with gems outright replace them with better spells or strikes.
- Random Effect Spell: The Pickaxe equips a random piece of equipment to its user whenever they significantly damage their opponent. How useful it is depends entirely on the rest of their deck.
- Schmuck Bait: A spider will sometimes appear to offer "free" money, but will come back later on to exempt a horrible toll on the player character's stats.
- All There in the Manual: There's an Encyclopedia section that lightly elaborates on the lore behind certain characters, items, and locations.
- Animation Bump: Playable characters and enemies alike have animated attack sequences.
- Darker and Edgier: Possesses a moodier atmosphere than the first game's while delving into more horror imagery with how many of the mutated enemies from the previous title attack.
- Gameplay and Story Integration: Krumit holds up the grid as you play, so gravity affects it, causing tiles above ones you deal with to slide down and potentially affect neighboring panels.
- The Magnificent: Returning cast members receive this treatment.
- Unexpected Gameplay Change: From a simple and straightforward deck building game to a radical, sliding, grid-based RPG experience.
