‘Gloomhaven’ Digital Introduces Characters

If you are a fan of the tabletop game Gloomhaven, or even if you have not heard of it you will want to check out the latest update for the digital adaptation of the game.

ABOUT THIS GAME

We warned you!

Whether you are drawn to Gloomhaven by the call of adventure or by the call of gold glimmering in the dark, your fate will surely be the same. Flaming Fowl and Asmodee Digital have teamed up to make you once again live through the epic journey of Gloomhaven… digitally!
Our development minions are working hard so that you can discover or rediscover this one of a kind tactical, turn-based RPG. 
In this rogue-like dungeon-crawling adaptation of the famous board game, you will journey through terrifying randomly generated dungeons, fight against increasingly horrific and powerful foes…or die trying.

The art of dungeon-crawling:

Our game designers are channelling Gloomhaven’s quintessential spirit day after day: deep tactical mechanics, battle preparations… and also dying.
In Gloomhaven, you play as a team of mercenaries on their own personal quests to go conquer a world of darkness and trials. Choose your group members wisely, because in the turmoil of battle you can only rely on your wits, skills and spells, to fight your way through the putrid dungeons and forgotten ruins. 
If you survive your perilous journeys, you might have the opportunity to expand your team, improve your spells or fill your coin purse. You’ll need these things to overcome the hordes of malicious beasts, demons, and whatever else may find itself in your path towards victory and domination of all. No decision should ever be made lightly, so choose with caution!

Features:

  • Discover the digital adaptation of Isaac Childres’ ultimate strategic board game.

  • Face countless enemies in the dungeons of this turn-based rogue-like game with addictive and tactical gameplay.

  • A huge variety of hero classes are available so that you can create your own custom group of formidable champions!

  • Each hero class may be played in various ways. Do you prefer the Cragheart to be soaking up damages on the frontline or crushing your enemies in a crater? It’s up to you to choose your specialty. 

  • Don’t forget to consider all of your characters’ skills to create a truly epic team!

  • Also, please do not feed the development minions after midnight. Who knows what could happen?

New announcement about characters and images:


The first characters in Gloomhaven include:
The versatile Savvas Cragheart
The Cragheart is the one that throws rocks and makes explosions! But it is so much more than that in Gloomhaven.
The Cragheart is one of the most versatile classes in the entirety of Gloomhaven and can play a variety of playstyles — a frontline tank, utility through heals and crowd control, or even an AoE damage dealer. Take advantage of the Cragheart’s flexibility to complement basically any team, but watch out for its AoE skills which are capable of dealing friendly fire damage!As such a versatile class, capable of so many ways to play, it is perfect for players of any skill level.


The powerful but fragile Orchid Spellweaver
The Spellweaver is the most well-rounded mage in the game, but at the same time the most complicated of the starting characters. Like the Cragheart, she is very versatile, able to be played as a ranged glass cannon, a support/utility character, or even a mix. She has a low health pool, meaning you always want to keep her far from the fight, but has some key abilities to help with this. She is capable of preventing damage, healing and even summoning minions.
As a high damage character with lots of cool single target and AoE abilities, as well as the capability to heal and support, she works well in any group to round out the team.


The tank-like Inox Brute
The Brute is your team’s powerhouse. He is a straightforward character that makes him easy to understand and enjoy for any new player. He has a high health pool and massive single target damage which, at later levels, can pierce through armor! This makes him capable of hitting hard, but also have the ability to take heavy hits in return.
With all of these traits added together, they make him an optimal starting character that can be used for taking down even the tankiest of opponents.


The stealthy Human Scoundrel

The Scoundrel is a guerrilla-style assassin — she gets in range to deal as much damage as possible, then gets out just as quick with stealth abilities. She has super-high damage, but sacrifices defense and utility. She is capable of hitting multiple targets with some of her skills, applying poison to her foes, and assassinating vulnerable targets.


She is straightforward and excels at what she does, making her a solid damage dealing choice for your party. Her looting abilities are also unparalleled, capable of grabbing up gear and gold like no other.


At the beginning of Early Access, players will be able to experience adventure mode, featuring rogue-like mechanics unique to the PC platform. During Early Access, content will be added on a regular basis, expanding enemies and character rosters, environments and adventures. Later, players will be able to dive into story mode, featuring 95 missions from the board game campaign that can also be played with other players via online Cooperative play.
