Hermetica is a roguelike turn-based card game. Players start with a basic set of cards and must build their perfect deck, upgrade it by practicing Alchemy and use it to defeat mythical beasts and powerful enemies. Each card collected opens new opportunities in combat.

Movement mechanics are based on tactical games: each card is randomly assigned a unique movement pattern that players must use to avoid traps and dominate the battlefield. Ambush enemies and use terrain to your advantage.

Cards can be enhanced through the use of alchemy, which consists of combining various elements and materials to craft powerful potions and elixirs in our laboratory. Enjoy the occult science based in transmutation of matter.

Hermetica is set in Sixteenth Century Toledo. You’ll travel through this legendary city while enjoying art based on medieval codices. Each time you embark on this adventure you will find different enemies, levels and cards to collect.
