Divinity Chronicles: Journey to the West is a rogue-like deck building game. You will play as one of the heroes with unique powers (modeled as cards, consumables, and relics) and build up your team, to decide the fate of the Realm of Divinity under the omen of darkness.

During your journey to the west, you will encounter various monsters, spirits, celestials, demons, and legendary creatures, with their own stories deeply intertwined with yours. Make up your mind to work with them to conserve your strength for later, or to defeat them in intensive turn-based combats.

Beware, you only have one life during the journey. Therefore it is crucial to make careful moves and choices, in order to safely reach your final destination and accomplish your missions.
  • Classic rogue-like story mode - in the story mode, you will start the adventure from Chang’An and travel across the entire continent to the Soul Mountains. You will have only one life and can not go backwards, so each step is critical to the final success.
  • Turn-based team combat - defeat your opponents by strategically playing cards (which cost energy), commanding companions, luring NPCs, using consumables, and leveraging relics. Many opponents have weaknesses, taking advantage of these weaknesses will carry you through some difficult fights.
  • Deck building strategies - each hero comes with a unique card pool, which is the core of his or her power. Carefully make your choice for each encounter and you will unlock various powerful strategies.
  • Immersive storyline and unique encounters - each hero has a unique storyline that is inspired by the legendary story of Journey to the West. During each play through, you will face different opponents, events, quests, and even endings, all based on your strategies and choices.
  • Numerous relics and consumables - choose the relics that pair well with your core deck strategy - and they will be powerful enough to turn the tide of the combat.
  • Build a powerful team - you will also be recruiting companions to join your team. Companions can be great helping hands in combat, while some of them can even trigger special storylines along the journey.
  • Unique artstyle - the game fuses the traditional Chinese ink painting with modern cartoon style to render the gameplay, which is coupled with oriental music and classical Chinese narrative.
As the game development progresses, more and more features and game play modes will be added.
