In Despot’s Game, you control a group of people who wake up in a strange maze. Equipped with no memories and loads of weapons, your team must do whatever it takes to survive in this strange environment.
Equipping your squad with different loot turns them into wizards, cultists, ninjas, and many other heroes. Mix and match your team to become survivors. In the maze, you will face a bunch of monsters, but if you survive, you will meet the final builds of other players in a battle to the death.
