Rogue Lords (2021) is a role-playing adventure where you are able to change the rules to your advantage. You play the devil who, run after run, manages a team of famous evil geniuses to take on a series of roleplaying events and turn-based combat.
Play involves making choices about how to interact with the people and creatures of the land that you encounter in roleplaying scenes, and which attacks to perform during combat. You also have a wide variety of powers at your disposal that allow you to “cheat” and change the game to suit you. These powers include manipulating the health bars of your disciples and enemies, swapping status effects, recharging used powers, increasing the likelihood a skill check will succeed, opening a portal on the map, and even changing the type of encounter you are about to face.
As you progress you unlock new skills, create powerful synergies, and use your powers to turn the situation in your favour at critical moments. Only by collecting ancient artefacts can you finally take your revenge on the Demon Hunters.
It's an unusual game with intriguing characters. Your team can include three disciples from Dracula, the Headless Horsemen, Bloody Mary, the White Lady, Lilith, Hecate, Baron Samedi, and Frankenstein and his Creature. Each has their own story, abilities and gameplay.
