The story of Ash of Gods: Redemption follows three separate protagonists, each talking an ancient evil that was assumed long gone from the world. The game’s antagonists, the reapers, have returned to the world with the intention of awakening the sleeping gods. To do so, they have to leave carnage in their wake. The story responds to players’ choices, making it a dynamic world where one false move could result in the death of a character.

The other is card collection gameplay, where your actions are bolstered by the powers and abilities of your cards. It’s an interesting and tactical system that’s a lot of fun for players.
The game doesn’t rely on random number generators or dice rolls for combat. Instead, it’s a highly strategic affair where players must master their class and associated skills. Cards must be used wisely to turn the tide of battle, and one wrong move could result in catastrophic consequences. Every choice you make, whether in combat or during the story, can impact the game. If your characters die, the game moves forward without them.
