Full review

When it comes to grimdark deck-building rogue-like adventures, Nadir: Grimdark Deck Builder - Prologue is truly a standout game. Inspired by Dante's Divine Comedy and boasting artwork that burns with infernal fire, this game offers a unique and immersive experience.

In Nadir, you command an avatar of one of the Deadly Sins in intense 1v1 fights against powerful demons. The gameplay is thrilling and strategic, thanks to the ability to double cards. Each card can be played in two ways, dependent on its color - blue or red. Balancing between these colors is crucial for success.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of Nadir is its card crafting system. Throughout your journey, you collect red and blue abilities that can be combined into unique double cards. This allows you to shape your deck in your own way and prepare for upcoming challenges.

Gathering resources during expeditions also plays a vital role in expanding the city of Nadir. By unlocking new characters, cards, and vendors through city development, you increase your chances of survival in future fights against boss characters tied to different Deadly Sins.

The variety offered by each Sin's set of enemies greatly alters gameplay styles and requires players to adapt their strategies accordingly. Learning how best to overcome these challenges will help build a powerful deck capable of conquering each fight.

The visuals in Nadir are truly exceptional; they are reminiscent both of the wonders found within Dante's Divine Comedy, as well as desaturated aesthetics seen in Sin City or Hellboy franchises.. The level designs evoke feelings ranging from awe-inspiring beauty mixed with horrifying dread.

Addictive gameplay aside,
Nadir shines through its amazing artwork,
faultless soundtrack,
and attention-grabbing visuals.
It effortlessly blends together different inspirations to create a truly unique experience.

Overall, Nadir: Grimdark Deck Builder - Prologue is an absolute gem of a game. Its combination of stunning artwork, engaging gameplay, and immersive soundtrack make it feel like a AAA title. If you're looking for something new and refreshing in the deck-builder genre, Nadir is an adventure you won't want to miss.
