The Reimagined Deckbuilding ExperienceThe Underscore introduces unique mechanics to the genre, adding a new depth to tactical decisions.
- Plan multiple steps ahead and beat the odds: the game has minimal randomness within cards and character actions. No cards like “do 1 to 5 damage on a rainy day, no dodges, no random criticals”
- Card queue instead of draw pile: cards come in a predictable queue, you know how soon that much needed card will come into play
- New tactical opportunities: carefully balance your upgrades or minmax all the way
- Build two decks every run: build Exploration deck to navigate the world and Battle deck to survive the encounters
