Dawncaster is an RPG card game made by veterans of the genre. Dive into the dark world of the Shattered Realms where dark evils will test your deck building skills.

Dive into the dark fantasy world of the Shattered Realms and join the battle against evil. Play as a cunning rogue, a brutal warrior or a mysterious Seeker wielding arcane magic. Or create your own class and play as who- or whatever you want to be! Start playing today, create a unique deck with access to over 300 cards and see how far you can venture into the corrupted lands of Umbris.


Every step of your heroic journey offers new tactical choices to improve your deck and strategy. Collect cards that match your playstyle, avoid disastrous events and build your strategy before the forces of evil overwhelm you.


Dawncaster offers unique mechanics to even the most veteran of card game players. Though most of the gameplay should feel familiar, the ability to combine class mechanics into deck building, weapons, enchantments and its unique energy system are exciting additions to the cardgame genre!


Discover the mystery of the missing ‘Dawncaster’, a hero of legend who has been lost in the corrupted realm of Umbris. Slay monsters and explore the darkest depths of a desperate world through handcrafted illustrations, dialogue and shape its future through your choices.


Dawncaster is offered as a complete deck builder cardgame. You get access to all cards, classes and content with your purchase. No need to buy packs, tokens or waste time on timers or ads. Future content will be offered through expansions at the same, single price per adventure kind of deal.


With randomized encounters, unique classes and choices to explore, playtime could easily reach the tens of hours for those that enjoy a challenge! Additional difficulty options are available for those that seek to push the limits of their strategic insight (and/or luck).

[Update] Dawncaster is a Gem, Despite Minor Hiccups

Just recently purchased this debut game from Wanderlost, and I have been enjoying it greatly. It’s been awhile since I’ve played a new mobile game from a new developer, and with Dawncaster, I’m glad I gave it a chance. Although there are a few writing errors and the occasional glitch, they are (as of yet) inconsequential to the overall enjoyment of the gameplay. I’m looking forward to future updates and how this game will be further refined.

[Update: So, I’ve messed around with the difficulty settings and discovered that the “Story” setting does not work as listed. Characters still die once HP reaches 0. Needs addressing.]

Developer Response ,

Hello K.BT., thank you so much for the positive review! Encouraging words like these motivate us to keep improving the game on every level.

Well be looking into the bug(s) and address them in the upcoming patch later this week. If you want to point us towards any specific glitch or mistake we’d love to hear from you on our Discord.

All the best,
- Wanderlost

Cards are bugged

I’ve been playing rogue, and cards that read “will trigger ambush as if it were first card played” simply fail to trigger ambush. Lookout and the enchantment in particular (the one that will trigger ambush after gaining evasion). The enchantment only seems to work on cards that simultaneously gain evasion and ambush, but if you play a single card that gains evasion followed by a single card that has ambush, ambush will not trigger.

New bug, i saw a 5-blue mana cost appear at the start of a hag fight (just after succubus), with text saying something like “this is just a test to see how wide a card is..” something like that. Fight wouldn’t continue and game crashed. It happened just after i added a spell card to a warrior deck w/the talent that gives a zero cost copy.

Also, discord links do not work. I click on them and don’t join any channels.

Best game I’ve played in a long while

The graphics are very pleasing and unique, the creatures are very well done. The battle system has been constructed with a lot of thought as well. Best of all the devs are very quick to respond on discord if you have issues or find bugs. 5/5 for me !
