Has anybody bought it yet?
It seems to tick all the right boxes for me, but I read it is a bit short and repetitive.

Based on reviews and comments up on the Steam forums, it's either way too hard due to random near-useless cards being dealt to you at the start of the fight (thus rendering boss fights near impossible to win), to way too easy even on hardest difficulty with people claiming to have won the game without losing a single fight.

So that probably didn't help at all

But one thing that was mentioned consistently is that after fighting new (never before seen) enemies for the first time, the XP is good, but even if the very next fight is against the same ones and the fight is the same difficulty (or lack thereof), the XP gain is drastically reduced. This sounds like a deal breaker to me, anyway, if true, when coupled with comments that some grinding may be needed.

It is streamed. Difficulty was already lowered from switch version and streamers breathe through it.

Poor play and poor players exist.

Sounds like a short game to me, and the card mechanic isn't a favourite of mine. I'll keep an eye out and see what people might think down the road on this one.

Unfortunately the combat effects seem weak and messed up. No play, no wasting my life on this one..
