Thea: The Awakening is a turnbased strategic survival game steeped in Slavic myth and monstrosity set after an apocalyptic force known only as The Darkness has engulfed the world. There are Strigas and Baba Yaga's aplenty, but there are no heroes, no monster slayers, and no great armies capable to banish them. Just a few hopeless and starving survivors, who are desperately trying to stay alive. You are their only and last true hope!
The game combines turnbased strategic gameplay, with the tension and grit of a rogue- like survival, captivating story you can uncover through a series of ingame events and a unique combat, based on a complex card battle game.
The wide range of gameplay features allows you to proceed through the world of Thea the way you prefer it. You can chose to stay in your village and build up defenses or go out exploring the world. You can also try to resolve conflict through assassination, stealth or diplomacy, so that a fight isn’t the only way out.
