    The Tower – To the Bottom

    At the end of the world and beyond,
    There was a tower without end.
    And those who dwell in that tower
    Are all children.
    Shoulder to shoulder on the tower,
    They lived strong.
    Believing in the rumor,
    That a paradise exists on the Earth below them.

    In this deckbuilding roguelike game, children living on top of a mysterious tower are trying to reach the bottom and reach paradise on earth. By using various cards, battle your way through the many trapped floors of the skyscraper. Some cards have different effects depending on their orientation, like tarot cards. If you use a medicinal herb card upside down, it will turn into a poisonous herb. Find your strategies to overcome the tower’s weird creatures and traps waiting for you.

    What is the nature of this tower, and what exactly is “paradise”?

    The Tower – To the Bottom, is directed by Tom Ikeda (Little King’s Story, Lollipop Chainsaw, BLACK BIRD, Rule of Rose).
