Card Shark comes to Switch and PC in 2021, bringing the artful craft of cheating at cards during the 18th Century

From Press Release:

Ace-in-the-hole developer Nerial (Reigns) and poker-faced publisher Devolver Digital (also Reigns) have announced Card Shark, a tale of deception throughout 18th Century Europe… or the comprehensive catalog of card tricks and other deceptions employed by the Comte de Saint Germain as described in “Mémoires Sans Parole,” coming to Nintendo Switch and PC in 2021.

A wild card of its genre, Card Shark will teach you real card tricks and manipulations as you fleece and cheat your way to the top of 18th century French society. As you move from the parlor to the King’s table, build up your array of card tricks and use your ill-gotten gains to buy your way into some truly high-stakes games.

Just make sure you don’t get caught. Your fellow tricksters do not take kindly to cheaters.

Card Shark is designed by Nerial with art by Nicolai Troshinsky and music by Andrea Boccadoro.
