Pawnbarian


Indie Game: Pawnbarian

A minimalist, turn-based, rogue-like puzzler with light deck-building elements. You are the titular Pawnbarian, a warrior piece on a 5x5 chessboard. You're thrown onto the tiny dungeon floor with a bunch of enemies, like the bloodthirsy Capybears, eldritch Blightsacks, and pesky Goblins.

You're given a deck of cards representing chess pieces, and play them to move on the board accordingly. The goal is to capture all enemies on a given floor by moving into them, like you would in chess, while avoiding or shielding yourself from their attacks.
