Burn With Me is a deck-builder where you burn your cards to win

By - | Views: 21,719

Well, that's certainly different. Usually a deck-builder card game is about building up your deck, here's it's about sacrificing them and burning them away.

Burn With Me was originally made for the Ludum Dare 55 game jam, but it's now getting an extended version with a Steam release. Made with Godot, the itch.io page for the original has it available to try in the browser and there's free downloads for Windows / macOS. My testing showed it working well in Wine 9 on Linux, with the Steam release noting it will have Linux support.

You only have a limited amount of cards to burn through, with the idea being you place one onto each corner of the Pentagram to add up to the score required to beat the current creature without using up all your cards. The cards all have different totals, and some work together to boost your total.

More about it:

Burn With Me: game prototype that we summoned in 3 days at Ludum Dare 55:

  • 14 creatures with unique effects
  • A wild mechanic of sacrificing your own deck card by card to get advantage
  • Choosing your difficulty right at the final boss

What can you expect in full Steam release?

  • A secret companion to guide you through the mysteries (and to introduce new ones)
  • Polished graphics, animations and sounds
  • New cards for new strategies
  • Branching paths and mini-bosses
  • New game modes
  • Ways to bend fate in your favor (at a cost)
  • A dark story to reveal
