Hello IndieDB Communities,

I am Lee Yunseok, creator of YGGDRASIL STUDIO. I am here to deliver the latest news. Web, and Standalone version of the DW Klondike Solitaire is out now on our GitHub and Itch. DW Klondike Solitaire is a web-based solitaire card game, it also supports the both of PC platforms(Win/Mac/Linux) and Raspberry Pi.

After released on Steam as a DLC of the Discouraged Workers, I'm working on a sequel. Of course we are also working on other projects. One of it, Yesterday I've released the web and standalone version of Solitaire, as I previously told Twitter and the Steam community. It is slightly different from the steam version.

Different from the Steam version

  • First, the game screen takes up the entire window. Some menus are displayed at the bottom of the screen, and there are no other objects occupying the space.
  • Second, the screen size is reduced to 1280 * 720 and runs in windowed mode.
  • Third, all letters have been uniformly enlarged in size.
  • Fourth, the web version is always free on our GitHub and Itch. Standalone version can be purchased from Itch, users will receive a Steam key with purchase.

Features

  • Based on Klondike, the best-known solitaire card game.
  • Original card images made from our tarot deck.
  • Play with a standard 52-card deck, without Jokers.
  • The four foundations are built up by suit from Ace to King.
  • Sometimes Taejin show up to give you a hint.
  • This mini-game was developed to get donations for the Project DW.
  • One Sweetly Solemn Thought.

The English translation is rather spotty. Based on the demo trailer there's some errors and dialogue seems rather unnatural for speech.

Otherwise it seems rather interesting

It was used my english and the magazine too. My translator will translate what I ordered(currently working for demo game). The trailer will be renewed again when the official release. Current trailer is the updated version of arts.
