London, UK - 6th April 2022 - Video games publisher CRITICAL REFLEX is excited to launch a new demo for upcoming tower defense, deck-building game, ORX, now available on Steam


Slated to release on PC later this year, ORX wil see players defend their lands from relentless attacks by a never-ending swarm of monsters.  

Expand your territory, call soldiers to arms and fortify your castle with every card that you play! Set in a beautifully drawn world of dark fantasy, players will progress through the game’s sprawling Campaign, unlocking new cards and powerful items known as Artifacts to enhance decks in game-changing ways and bolster the kingdom’s defenses.

Every level, tougher and more relentless enemies will assault the kingdom - pick the right strategy and rid your lands of the Orcish menace once and for all!

Game features:

  • 300+ Cards - experiment with the cards available, and unlock new ones to build the perfect deck!
  • 4 Factions, each with their own set of cards and tactics
  • A roguelike-style Campaign, featuring 3 Acts, all with their distinct biomes, day/night and season cycles!
  • Over 30 types of enemies, all chomping at the bit to burn your castle to the ground! From simple, yet nasty grunts to ORX Heroes, all equipped with unique abilities - there’s plenty of danger coming your way!
  • An advanced difficulty mode, available to those who’ve mastered the Campaign - put your tactical skills to the ultimate test!

Gather the right deck, fortify your defenses, and think on your feet - that’s the key to standing tall against the never-ending hordes of ORX!
