A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Welcome to the Cardcade,  where we take you back to a better decade! 

This game is a mix between a card game and dungeon crawler. Run through a dungeon, throw cards to activate them and unlock more cards as you progress through the dungeon! Find and restock your deck with NEW unlocked cards that you find in the dungeon to give you an edge over the monsters!


  • W/A/S/D & Arrow keys - Move and navigate menu.
  • Spacebar - Confirm (Menu and inventory)
  • “i” / Enter - inventory
  • Click on and hold down on a card to aim, release to throw it at your cursor location
  • When wanting to remove a card, press arrow up (or W), to toggle selection to your chosen cards.

Of course, this was not made by a singular dungeon dweller, no; there was an entire hardworking team on board that slaved away for the 72 hours!

this game is amazing. Its like playing yugioh with issac comes to one. Its a dream comes true game. The only lack of this game is just to short and only 1 boss. Besides of that, its an amazing game. Its my first gameplay, hope it will get a better update soon

Thank you for playing the game! This was made for Ludum Dare (a gamejam) in 72 hours. We are going to develop it into a full game with tons of bosses, enemies and cards! :)

is there any chance this game got a multiplayer update? it will be amazing to play it online with friends

There is a chance for sure, but initially we are going to focus on making the sinlgeplayer experience as good as possible.
