SAGHALA Demo Review
According to the story, you are living in 2081, and 60 years ago from that date, a nuclear war wiped out everything that mankind built. Only five years after the nuclear war, coronal mass ejections and solar flares of the sun wiped out all kinds of electronics, and mankind was left hopeless.
During this chaos, humanity was divided into four factions, and everyone had to choose their side. Now, these four factions are fighting with each other to control Saghala and the Core. At the beginning of the game, players will choose their hero and embark on an adventure to face plenty of challenges that will try to stop them.
Your main goal is to find and repair the core, which is the last underground fusion reactor left on the planet. Of course, you are going to make plenty of choices that can affect your overall progress towards your goal and overcome plenty of challenges. You will have your own settlement, which you need to expand while exploring the world. In addition to this, players will train armies to increase their odds of finding the reactor and beating other players who have the same purpose.
During your gameplay, players will find new settlements and explore continents and undergrounds. Besides improving and developing your own settlement, you also need to produce resources, trade goods, craft new battle cards, and find new artifacts and equipment.
Basically, you will be focusing on your own hero and developing his skills with main and side quests. The game offers four factions: Mutants, Worshipers, Flaming Skull, and Brotherhood of Atom. In addition to this, you are going to enjoy four different environmental settings during your adventure. These are greenlands, wasteland, deadly plants, and underground.
The best part of Saghala is that you can manage your own settlement, which means that you are going to build new buildings and upgrade them for added benefits. Even in the demo version, there are plenty of side quests for players to enjoy as well.
The game has a day and night system as well as a day cycle. Every week your settlement will be attacked by nomads. Besides amazing role-playing elements, the combat system is built on deckbuilding. You need to craft new battle cards by using your resources to beat your opponent quickly.
Moreover, players will meet random characters, bandits, traders, and settlers during their adventure. Needless to say, they can also upgrade their weapons, items, and armor.
All in all, Saghala offers a great deck-building adventure. If you are looking for an indie game to support and wait for its release, this game could be your jam.
