Slay the Spire is a rogue-lite game developed by American studio Mega Crit Games and published by Mega Crit and Humble Bundle. The game was first released in early access for Windows, macOS, and Linux in late 2017, with an official release in January 2019.
It was released for PlayStation 4 in May 2019, for Nintendo Switch in June 2019 and for Xbox One in August 2019. An iOS version was released in June 2020 with an Android version planned later in the year.
In Slay the Spire, the player, through one of four characters, attempts to ascend a spire of multiple floors, created through procedural generation, battling through enemies and bosses.
Combat takes place through a collectible card game-based system, with the player gaining new cards as rewards from combat and other means, requiring the player to use strategies of deck-building games to construct an effective deck to complete the climb.
Slay the Spire has been well-received. It was nominated for several accolades in 2019, and is considered the game that launched a number of rogue-lite deck-building games.
