Rise of Humanity is a strategic roguelike deckbuilding game.
The Hivemind project resulted in the most powerful AI created by mankind. At the time we didn’t know better than letting it control all of our automated work force. A disaster waiting to happen as the AI went rogue.
In Rise of Humanity you take control of a band of odd heroes who so far have survived the onslaught that started 50 years ago. They have discovered that the robots the AI uses to do its bidding are getting weaker and this is the time to strike back.
Each hero (and enemy) is controlled by a deck of cards. This deck gives your characters actions during a mission. Each mission is played out on a hexagonal grid in a strategic turn-based manner. Missions are procedurally build so no mission is ever the same.
Destroying enemies and finishing missions gives you access to new cards for your heroes. You built their deck as you play the game! However if they die, they will lose their progress so every decision counts!
Will you be the one to save humanity and let it rise again from the ashes of this onslaught?
Danny might look like a punk, but he's actually a former acclaimed showman that excels in illusions and manipulation. His cards are tailored to divert the enemy but also to manipulate the deck of his allies!
Let's look at two new cards:
The MARV - or the chicken with a bazooka as we like to call it in the office - is the first ranged enemy in the game, which means it will shake up tactics quite a lot. No more hiding behind turrets or walls, this thing comes straight for your soul.
Let's look at one of the MARV's cards:
...and many more new cards!
We also conjured up the Warehouse, a magical place made for bot-clobbering. This abandoned multi-floor jungle of walkways and vines creates the most claustrophobic experience in Rise of Humanity yet. The level features a more narrow layout compared to the already existing levels. This also makes the Illusionist shine!
The daily challenges just got more challenging! More enemies - yes, including the MARV -, more demanding mission goals, more tension in general.
Four challenge types will possibly get you into full-on nail-biting mode:
ESCAPE – Be a sci-fi Houdini and make your way to an ever-changing escape zone while dodging robot raids. All heroes need to escape, so make sure to bring some elbow grease.
DESTROY – Airborne AI shuttles dropped some deadly bombs that eradicate your whole team if you’re too late. Get going and wreck them all before time runs out!
SURVIVE – The robot horde has spotted you, but help is on its way. Can you stand your ground for long enough without getting annihilated? Pro defense tactics are required.
KILL THEM ALL – Classic mode. Just wipe out every robot and claim victory. Simple as that.
Our community over on discord voted on the Deploy Turret card to be turned into an animated one. So here it is! Make sure to play the game between March 31, 2022 and May 31, 2022 to claim your animated Deploy Turret card.
And of course a lot of bugfixes and tweaks based on your reports and suggestions! Just to name a few:
...and much more smaller bugfixes and tweaks!
