About Dice Legacy
Dice Legacy is a roguelike survival city-builder. Players use dice to establish a medieval town in a fascinating ringworld and grow their society.
Every action is based on the roll of a six-sided dice, from planting and harvesting to establishing supply chains or combat. In Dice Legacy, the dice represent the work force. As a ruler, builder, conqueror or trader the players will need to provide their dice with nourishment and care or witness their subjects eventually fade away. Balancing exploration, resource gathering, building and conquering is key whilst the ever present threat of mysterious factions looms in the fog of war.
Players will soon realize luck is nothing without a good strategy behind it – and dice versa.
