“Deck of Ashes has been in development for two and a half years, and every month since the early access, we have supplemented the game with new content, new characters, monsters, events, balanced,” says Oleg Vasilyev, head of AY Games. “We are sincerely grateful to the players who have supported us, shared their impressions, advice, and recommendations, some of which we managed to implement in the Deck of Ashes. Without your support, it would be much more difficult to work on the game. Now the project is at the finish line, and our whole team hopes that the players will enjoy the full history of our world!”
