Alder's Blood is a stealth-tactical turn-based game set in a dark, mysterious, Victorian-western world.
In Alder’s Blood, combat is turn-based, strongly focused on stealth and tactics. Player takes on the role of Chief: a leader of the Hunters’ crew tasked with the unthinkable challenge, to kill their corrupted God. In order to do so, the player has to complete a number of missions, travel around the dying world, craft weapons and tools, and defeat nightmarish creatures.
The beasts can easily detect hunters not only with their vision or hearing but also by catching up hunters’ scent. This unique mechanic adjusts diversity to the encounters, forcing the player to also keep in mind the wind direction before conquering any action. Highly influenced by Darkest Dungeon's and Bloodborne’s vibes and aesthetics, Alder’s Blood mixes rough wild west settings with dark, Victorian fantasy elements.
The game was preceded by a free-to-play prologue, Alder's Blood: Prologue. The full game was released on Switch on 13 March 2020, and on Windows on 10 April 2020.
