Ash of Gods is a mix between a roguelike role-playing visual novel and an online turn-based strategy game. It has been heavily inspired by The Banner Saga series, Japanese visual novel games, and the spirit of The Darkest Dungeon. The game is being developed with Unity and will be available on PC first.

Man, Nintendo isn't wasting any time getting a commercial out there! As if the Switch wasn't hard enough to find already. Come August, the situation is only going to get worse!
