Ring of Pain blends elements of modern roguelike/roguelite dungeon crawlers (Binding of Isaac, Enter the Gungeon etc.) with a turn-based card game, set in a world distorted by your mind. A cryptic world of fear and delusion.



  • A NEW BREED OF CARD DUNGEON CRAWLER - Dungeon crawl in a card game, no walking required! Levels are generated randomly from decks of cards, and arranged in a ring, which lets you observe the level and strategise
  • LOOT, LOOT, LOOT - Focus on equipment looting and gear management, not decks of cards
  • EMBRACE THE WEIRD - Experience an overarching story with multiple branching endings and a creepy cast of characters

What Samiee "Gutterpunk" Tee thought:

6.50/10 6½

“A speedy roguelite with confusing narrative content that bogs down an otherwise fulfilling blueprint of satisfying moment-to-moment gameplay and positively off-putting visual design. A case of carte blanche backfiring in the face of a finale that fails to uphold a promise on one end, betraying that quick-thinking nature.”
