Slothwerks is working on an Adventure Time-style, deck-building roguelike called Meteorfall
Can't wait to see more
Slothwerks recently revealed their upcoming card-based battler for iOS, and it's looking pretty darn good.
Meteorfall is Slothwerks' first project in three years, would you believe it? It's a desk-building roguelike inspired by Peter Whalen's Dream Quest, in which you'll collect cards and encounter various monsters, temples, shops, and more as you go on.

After choosing a character (each of which has their own deck), you'll work your way through the game through different elements. Interestingly, the idea isn't to jam your deck full of ultra-powerful cards, but rather cards that mesh together well.
In the developer's blog post, he describes how combat works in the game since that's a huge part of the overall experience.
"When you draw a card, you can either swipe it left or swipe it right. If you swipe it left, you ‘take a breather’ for that action and recover stamina. Otherwise, you pay the stamina cost for the card and resolve the effect. Slash is a really simple card, and Bruno’s basic deck is composed primarily of Slash cards. After you run out of actions, its’ your opponent’s turn. The battle continues to go back-and-forth until one character is victorious. If you run out of abilities in your deck, your discard pile if shuffled back in."
