With a focus on hexcrawl exploration, roguelike adventures are supported by light deckbuilding and crafting/resource management with over 250 illustrated cards that allow for significant replayability and different means of approaching each scenario.

 Procedurally generated worlds and events: 
  • Modular hexcrawl rules allow for solo, cooperative, competitive and casual play across individual scenarios and fully fledged campaigns.  
  • Hundreds of individual scenarios designed for 45 minutes of gameplay or more, with near-infinite replayability through semi-randomised draws and events.

Explore procedurally generated dungeons in 3 dimensions!


Engaging Combat & Interaction system: 
  • Combining the strategic depth of board games with the flexibility of RPG mechanics, encounters in Amberlight are both tactical and narrative-driven. 
  • Combat is designed so that positioning, environment, and character abilities all play a crucial role.  
  • Campaign play further provides for 'Choose Your Own Adventure' style advancement with concurrent downtime and inter-scenario activities.

Meaningful Progression & Development: 
  • Players can choose from a variety of Apprentices, each with unique abilities and progression. Customize your Apprentice further with specialized Disciplines, adding depth and variety to your playstyle. 
  • Grow your own Retinue and Followers, whilst collecting rare artefacts and knowledge!

Dynamic World: 
  • The world of Nous changes with your decisions. Cities grow, alliances shift, and areas on the board can change ownership, reflecting the ongoing story.
