Collateral Souls is a coffeebreak roguelike


Collateral Souls is a roguelike game meant to be quick to play and easy to pick up. Battle your way through an unexpected afterlife – hunted by angels and demons alike. Modern weapons like rifles and shotguns add a unique ranged combat system not seen by many games of the genre. Ascend mortal ability and use divine weaponry for your own survival. Die again. Repeat. Who said the afterlife didn’t have an afterlife?

Single Roll Combat System

The combat system in Collateral Souls is based off of a single roll utilizing it for accuracy and damage combined. The system functions as follows: Attack Roll = accuracy + d100 - armor - cover(ranged only) - range penalties(ranged only)

Positive values become the percent damage dealt, so an attack roll of 90% and a base damage of 10 will do 9 damage. Negative numbers have a chance to glance (dealing 1 damage) or miss entirely. The chance to miss is the absolute value of the attack roll. So an attack roll of -25% has a 25% chance to miss and a 75% chance to glance
