In case you missed the demo, Power Chord from Big Blue Bubble, is a heavy metal-themed roguelike deck builder that sports a presentation and narrative arc for the ages, as well as some seriously tight mechanics and a fair amount of innovation in an otherwise crowded genre market. The game will also be coming to Nintendo Switch at a later date, but hits PC later this month.

Heavy metal demons emerge from a tear between worlds and book a gig to terrorize your stomping grounds! Assemble the new Knights of Thunder Fist to take back the town’s grungy dive bars from these thrashing hellspawn. Wage each Battle of the Bands with easy-to-learn, yet deep, turn-based combat. Build a deck of powerful cards, each riffing off a bandmate’s larger-than-life personality, and survive a concert tour for the ages.

In this rock n’ roguelike inspired by deckbuilding genre giants, start off the show with a guitarist, vocalist, drummer, and bassist, each boasting tailored cards. Push back the demonic horde by tapping into every bandmate’s skillset. Draw and choose cards to ravage the enemy’s armor with the bassist’s toxic damage-over-time, sing songs of stat boosts to prepare the lead guitarist for a killer solo, or have the tank drum up some defenses.

Expand the setlist by winning battles and claiming new cards at each randomly generated stop in the tour, but rock responsibly—the road is long and hundreds of potential enemy band compositions make every venue a threat. A band without harmony will fall, and if a bandmate goes down, they’re out of the lineup until the next Rest Site. Fearsome, demonic rock gods await as bosses for only the most stalwart squad.

Amass a legendary collection of cards to take the band’s performance to the next level and build a one-of-a-kind rock legend. Mastermind killer combos to not merely survive, but bring down the house (literally in some cases). Celebrate the triumph of a team victory and the thrilling legacies of rock, heavy metal, and punk.
Having played through the demo a handful of times, we can confidently say this is a genre title you should have high on your list, especially if you're a fan of heavy music. Rocking Steam from January 26, Power Chord is also set to release on Nintendo Switch at a later date. Stay tuned towards the end of the month for more from us on Power Chord and its metal-inspired world.
