The game is a cooperative, tactical boss-battle in which up to five players have to fight against each of the Zodiacs. Players control the hero characters and work together to defeat each monster over a narrative-driven campaign.
The game features fast-paced combat based on tactical maneuvering and digital action cards.
Each Zodiac encounter is set in a completely different environment and poses a variety of tactical challenges. Thanks to the Teburu system, the Zodiacs are AI-driven, making them aware and responsive to player actions, while digital audiovisual effects bring a new dimension to the gameplay experience.
Four predestined, and unsuspecting heroes shall fight the 12 Zodiacs before they reset the world as we know it. They don't know why; they were not prepared, but they are convinced by a weird astrologist called Gil that the whole story is incredibly true. After coming across rare and unique artifacts, the protagonists awaken their inner powers and become the heroes this apocalyptic situation needs.
She's one of the most successful startuppers of the last 20 years. An orphan, she built her fortune from the ground up. Agile and quick in both business and combat, she has an assassin's instinct and fights with twin short blades. She uses a P90 automatic assault rifle as a secondary weapon - Silenced.
The Zodiacs are horrifying, gigantic demigods. Awakening from a 26 thousand year sleep, they emerge from their resting places with no regard for anything that comes in their way.
They are beyond human understanding and operate on a completely different level of reason but feature the recognizable characteristics of each zodiac sign.
Aries is impatient and impulsive, and this is reflected in its attitude to combat: charging towards the enemies with its head down, showing off its power without caring about the consequences of its actions.
Players will fight Aries in its cave, a rocky arena where a giant raging bull is ready to crush the heroes and slam them around the battlefield.
The story of The Bad Karmas spans the past, present and future. Our heroes are reborn generation after generation, throughout the cycles of history, to protect the world from the unstoppable curse of the Zodiacs.
After "the incident" happened, heroes of distant universes gather in our world to join the fight against the Zodiacs, bringing with them their special skills and weapons.
