I’m starting to see several video games use the deck-building mechanic now. Hand of Fate was a fun distraction for a while, though it’s repetative nature got to me after a bit. Now I’ve gotten a review code for Forced Showdown, a twin-stick, rogue-like game with a deck-building mechanic to it. From what I’ve seen on their website, it seems pretty cool. I’m hoping to get a chance to play it tonight and see for myself. If I do, I’ll make sure to stream it on Twitch.
UPDATE: I got a chance to play and stream! Check it out below.
