Cobalt Core is a sci-fi roguelike deckbuilder with a deep new single-axis combat system! Dodge missiles, line up your cannons, and blast your enemies out of the sky! Then get to the bottom of these time loops, before it's too late…


  • Fresh new spin on tactics – dodge attacks and target weak points in this unique single-axis take on tactics combat. Outwit the enemy in a high stakes game of cat and mouse!
  • Customize your deck – hundreds of cards and split upgrade paths means no two runs will be the same. Find that perfect combo that brings your deck from powerful to overpowered.
  • Get to know your crew – each character comes with a completely unique playstyle and their own personal story. Bring 3 along, mix and match their decks, and see how these little goobers get along with each other.
  • Tons of replayability – hundreds of different character+ship combinations before you even hit “start run”. Keep it fresh with daily challenge runs and variable difficulty levels!
  • Forward momentum – untangle a narrative and unlock more playstyles as you go. Is there any escape from this time loop?

About Brace Yourself Games

Brace Yourself Games was founded by veteran indie developer Ryan Clark in 2013. It’s only appropriate that our Vancouver-based independent game studio was named for a programmer pun that could only come from his shiny, bald head: {YOURSELF}

Our goal is to make standout games. We try new things, hold ourselves to a high standard, and make improvements when we make mistakes. What’s important is that you can always count on us to deliver in the end. 

Brace Yourself Games is publishing Godless.
