    Roll the dice, befriend beasts and save humanity from extinction

    LOS ANGELES, April 9th, 2024 – The innovative tactical roguelike combining dice-based combat with monster recruiting mechanics, Dicefolk, is coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year, publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment and developers LEAP Game Studios and Tiny Ghoul announced today. An acclaimed adventure praised for its satisfying combat and packed with adorable monsters to befriend while mastering their abilities in battle, Dicefolk is an inventive outing certain to delight Switch fans.

    Check out the announcement trailer:


    In Dicefolk, take full control of each combat encounter by not only guiding your own team’s turns, but the turns of adversaries as well. This mechanic elevates the level of strategy in each fight, transforming dice into tactical tools for success in battle. Be mindful of the dice faces you choose and the order they’re activated in, as they impact the abilities both your team and your enemies can use.

    Begin your quest in Dicefolk as a Chimera Summoner, encountering a myriad of formidable creatures that are recruitable to join your team. Cultivate connections and befriend powerful companions to accompany you on your journey. Keep in mind all of your Chimeras’ abilities to fully utilize your team’s strengths. With over 100 creatures and items to collect, the bounds of strategic possibility for your journey feel endless.

    In Dicefolk’s vibrant world, humanity is on the brink of extinction thanks to Salem, a sorcerer who has ordered magical beasts called Chimeras to turn against all humans. Enter Alea, a young Dicefolk hero who learns she can use her powers to befriend Chimeras with the magic of her dice. With the knowledge of her new powers, Alea sets out on her quest to stop Salem and free her land from its grasp.
