Luckless Seven is a fantasy card game RPG. The game takes place in the country of Arithia, a developed nation surrounded by politically unstable regions. Despite the high standard of living and stability of their government, many Arithians are xenophobic due to their historically homogenous society. With the influx of refugees over the past two decades along with a shifting political and economic atmosphere, the people of Arithia are becoming more desperate to preserve their view of Arithian culture.
Players will take control of Mark, a young Arithian whose parents came to the country as refugees. Mark will travel through the cities of Arithia to participate in the World Ekosi Tour. Ekosi is a widely popularly card game that is played for both gambling and recreational purposes. Arithia's Ekosi tournament is a massive event that draws players from around the world. Hopeful players compete at casinos across the nation in order to qualify for the World Finals. Although the impressive prize pool is not the reason Mark participates in the tournament, he begins to discover new motivations for winning the tournament as his journey progresses.
Mark will travel with a party consisting of his childhood friends and acquaintances. Each person in the party will have fully developed character arcs and make a significant impact on how the story progresses. Players will be able to develop Mark's personality and worldview through dialogue choices and actions. Certain decisions will open up new dialogue choices while preventing others from being chosen.
With Luckless Seven, we hope to take character development and progression in another direction. The game will have two primary leveling systems: collecting more powerful cards that boost your capabilities in battle and increasing your social development by interacting with other characters in the game. Please join us on our journey as we attempt to create a rich and fulfilling role playing experience!

Hello everyone! We hope that you are having a good summer. Since our last blog post, we've released several versions that have implemented many improvements to our tutorial system. The beginning parts of the tutorial section are fully guided now, and we hope that it provides sufficient instruction for learning the game.
He most obvious change you might have noticed is tat we've redesigned the layout of the button system We've moved the buttons from the right side of the screen to the left. The End Turn button has been renamed to Hit to better reflect its function. We found that End Turn confused a lot of new players, even if they were familiar with Blackjack.
The battle screen now reveals much more information on player states and when new cards are dealt. Previously, players simply had to remember when new cards were dealt. Now, the score markers reveal which round new cards will appear and how many of them will be dealt.
The big counter in the bottom right corner of the board reveals the number of cards left in the dealer deck. The counter is meant to help players better predict what cards will be dealt. When the dealer deck refreshes, the player will know that the cards being dealt will be more variable.
Alpha version 0.158 has introduced new lighting effects to the menu and battle screen. This should everything on screen easier to view and more beautiful to look at.
If you haven't been keeping up with the updates to our soundtrack, you can always go to our composer's SoundCloud and listen to the work we have so far.
Luckless Seven Alpha 0.158 will most likely be the last alpha version for several weeks. The next alpha version will have massive updates to the gameplay and may even include the overworld. Until then, we'll keep you updating with more screenshots and soundtracks.
See you then!
