I originally ignored this because I knew it was based on dice, but you actually get a lot of control over your moves. It's quite similar to something like Slay the Spire in terms of managing your abilities and equipment, and making decisions about which dice to use on which card each turn. Each run will give you different equipment and you can try to specialise in certain things, with lots of viable options. It has a unique, coherent art style like a Saturday morning cartoon, and the gameplay is quick and smooth. The highlight of the game was playing as a thief, stealing an alchemist's ability to become a bear, then being a fluffy bear dice for the rest of the game.
