With tons of customization and a classless progression system, the turn-based RPG 'Dark Bestiary' has left Early Access.
The main aim of the game here is combat, and lots of it. If you enjoy turn-based character building with plenty of loot then you're likely going to feel right at home. It's quite a streamlined game one that does away with forcing you down the path of specific skill sets and big open worlds to explore. Instead you go through various smaller maps picked from a board of missions, with each one being a series of encounters to battle through.
Dark Bestiary definitely isn't a fancy game but if you love wildly varying character builds and lots of turn-based combat, it's all you need in a simple streamlined package. There's no tutorial and no easing you into it. It's quite abrupt which I noted originally when taking a look in 2019 and it seems that hasn't improved. Still, if you've played pretty much any turn-based strategy/RPG type of game, you will be able to pick up the game mechanics without any fuss.
