What is Desolate?

Desolate is a solo-play card and dice game. You have many choices that will ultimately equate to your survival or your demise. Do you explore the first room you reveal, or press-your-luck and skip it to move on to another, and be forced to resolve the second? When you encounter an alien you must decide how much ammo you want to spend (Each ammo equals 1 die roll) in order to defeat it. Do you over-spend for a certain victory, or take a chance a spend less? When you defeat a foe and open a crate, do you take the larger more valuable resource, or the lesser valued resource that may be more useful now? Do you use a powerful one-use item early on in the game, or wait?

There are many choices per game, and when you die, and you will often, you will not be able to blame the roll of a die or the draw of card as much as you will have to blame yourself. You will be invested. You may yell at the dice before rolling. You may jump to your feet when you find that final power cell and fire up the escape shuttle for a sweet sweet victory.

Quotes & Reviews

"Desolate is a solo gaming gem: quick, simple, engaging, and immersive."

  • The Indie Game Report

"An excellent, smooth and streamlined solo experience. The artwork and theme grabbed me initially but the game play is just as great."

  • Steven Aramini - Designer of Circle the Wagons & Yardmaster

"I commonly agonize over every single card, and it's torture to turn over a card for loot and realize I just looted an engineering card. Very Fun!"

  • Ben Haskett - Publisher of Oaxaca & Project Dreamscape

"Great, tight solitaire press your luck game. Every turn offers choices, and your immediate needs (oxygen!! Ammo!!) can really influence your strategy. Plays really fast and gets a bit addictive!"

  • Chris Leder - Designer of Roll For It! & City of Gears

"A solo space adventure that will see you fail and fail again but you are guaranteed to come back for more! I feel desolate is a compact, bare bones experience where everything has been designed with a purpose and a balance that makes it easy for me to recommend adding this to your library."
