Handling much like an MMO, players will see and maybe even interact with one another as they explore a magical chain of islands in Waven. You will aid a handful of colorful NPCs by taking on quests that will bring you to numerous islands and perils. Players begin by choosing their class, each with its own specialization, before heading out on their adventure.
With the world flooded only a decade ago, each island will offer different survivors and stories to engage in. Players will need to take on quests to acquire gear, spells, companions, and more if they hope to get stronger. Much of the narrative in Waven plays out during combat, with battle requirements occasionally changing the pace of the game.
The action takes place on a grid, where you control your character from turn to turn. You can choose to either move or attack each turn, while also having access to a deck of spell cards. Spells are tied to a regenerative resource but also come in different elements, building up the corresponding aura with each use. This further forces players to be strategic with their choice, as aura allows players to summon allies to the fight.
Here is what you can expect to do in Waven:
Deep turn-based tactical combat
Deck building and RPG progression
Class-specific playstyles: Healer, Warrior, Archer, Mage, and Assassin available in the demo
