The game will put players in the shoes of Mark, a young adult drifting through life. Bored of his dead end job and feeling less risk averse than usual, Mark decides to take a leap of faith and joins his friends on a cross-country Ekosi tour.

LucklessSevenCards

Ekosi is the name of the card game used as the battle system for Luckless Seven. The foundation for the card game was inspired by Pazaak, a minigame from Bioware’s 2003 hit Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Both Ekosi and Pazaak are similar to Blackjack but have a few key differences such as players having a hand in which they can play cards to manipulate their score.

Besides battling other characters, players will travel with a group of Mark’s childhood friends. Each of the characters that travels with Mark will have a prominent role in the story and fully developed character arcs. The player’s interactions with his party members and other characters in the story will determine what dialogue choices they can make and how their story will conclude.

Dialogue system where choices matter

The game will have a top-down isometric view and feature an overworld that the player can explore. Numerous NPCs scattered throughout the world will engage the player in Ekosi battles. Players will unlock new cards and additional quests by taking the time to explore the world and challenge other characters. The player will also have numerous interactions with their party throughout each stage of their journey.

Decide who you become

The players will have more options and strategies available to them as they win more cards. Besides collecting powerful cards, the player will also be able to interact with many NPCs and witness many story-creating events when they explore Arithia’s cities. By taking the time to interact with the world’s characters and participating in each party member’s story arcs, the player will level up their character and unlock additional story events, dialogue trees, and endings.

Explore beautiful and expansive environments

It's Happening

Hello everyone!

It’s been awhile since our last update, but I think we have something worth the wait.

A long time coming.


If the picture doesn’t say it all, I will. Today, we launched the Luckless Seven Steam store page. Most PC gamers will be familiar with Steam, the largest digital game distributor there is. If you aren’t, well, that’s what it is! For many players, myself included, it is the place to buy and download games. I hope it goes without saying that our launch on Steam is a day that everyone on the team has looked forward to for a long time.

Launching on Steam means reaching a much larger audience than we’ve met before, and we wanted to make a good impression on the community of players that will join us for the next stages of development. So, for the past couple of months, we’ve been devoted to creating and improving promotional materials: the trailer, captioned screenshots, game descriptions, and more. Of utmost importance was refining our existing demo.

When working on the demo, we continued to emphasize teaching Ekosi. It’s at the core of Luckless Seven’s gameplay, and a proper education in it is essential to us. To that end, we’ve created a branching path in the AI Ekosi Tutorial. For players that elect it, the tutorial now provides more information than ever. For experienced players and those who prefer to learn by doing, we’ve added an option to disable the tutorial entirely.

Our handsome Ekosi instructor will now hold your hand through the basics of Ekosi--if you choose, of course.


Of course, there are other changes. Taking screenshots and re-recording gameplay for the trailer inspired us to revisit our graphics and make improvements to Luckless Seven’s visual world by recoloring objects, creating new ones, adjusting saturation, contrast, lighting, etc. Additionally, we’ve made changes to correct a few problems with pathfinding. Finally, a few permanent changes to the Ekosi interface have made it more intuitive than ever before.

The Casino interior looks better now! But it's not the only location to receive some extra attention.

You’ll be able to find all of these changes and more by downloading the current version of the game (0.664) directly from Steam. We’ll be hosting stable versions of the game on Steam, but newer versions will be downloadable at IndieDB as always.

If you have any thoughts to share about the current and new versions of the Luckless Seven demo, we encourage you to share them at our new Steam Forum. The Forum will provide a fantastic space to discuss your experiences with the game, any bugs you encounter, and your suggestions for the team.

We’re super excited about the launch on Steam, and we couldn’t have gotten this far without the generous support of our Kickstarter backers. Thank you! We look forward to continuing work on the game, and we’ll see you on Steam!

Until next time!

Thank you for playing! We'll definitely be adding a lot of new features to the game over the next couple months. We've been working hard on the overworld and dialogue system, and we should have them implemented into the demo within the next couple months. We hope you'll take another look at the game when those changes are up!
