Mistover is a new game from South Korean company Krafton Game Union, the company that brought us PUBG. This game is quite different however because it’s a rogulike game with a twist. It is also a turn-based RPG. It sounds weird but it looks like it works. If you need more convincing though there is a two demos for you to try which is available now. There is the time trial demo which gives players 10 minutes to escape a dungeon that they are in and there is the full demo. This one goes more into the lore of the game and introduces players to the mechanics.

Players take control of a Corps crew on their journey through a diverse dungeon excursion through the Pillar of Despair. Here is more about the game courtesy of Krafton:

A massive vortex known as the Pillar of Despair released a thick mist that swept across the small kingdom of Arta, decaying the once lush lands. From this vortex, tremendous creatures known as espers were released destroying everything in their path. As Arta laid on the brink of destruction, all attacks subsided and the Expedition Corps began recruiting members willing to brave the deadly mysteries and effects of what Corps members call the Misfortune Mist.
