Ok, this is well worth the $20 (sale price) on steam.
It's a combo of the Talisman board game with cards making your path and you drawing weapons, armor, incidents etc. Then when you get to an encounter its a case of basic 3rd person beat em up with a dodge, block and stun plus LMB click to attack in real time. You also have a few extra skills if they RNG's out of your deck or you bought them along the way.
The AI story-teller/dealer is well animated and voice-acted and the card art is simple but quite nice. The combat is ok and fun as well but I think it's the weak point. Not weak enough to detract from the game. As you progress you build up deck resources and can craft new decks, plus the AI slips some extras in after you have created the core. I'm two games in and have hit the "just one more" point.
I've been disillusioned with quite a few big name games recently (hi Evolve and Wolfenstein) and Armello still doesn't quite feel that finished/enjoyable (because it's not) to me so it's nice to see smaller houses putting out fun games
Well worth having a look at or at least take a look at the TB review:
Apparently it's made by an Australian developer called Defiant Development (www.defiantdev.com/hofpress)
