Ancient Enemy is a strategic RPG card game in which you make interesting tactical decisions as you battle distorted enemies and overcome challenging puzzles. Face a horde of deadly enemies, each one emerging from a world in which evil has already triumphed. You must not only endure, but also rebuild your powers to vanquish evil and fight one last duel against your monstrous nemesis!

Travel through a scarred landscape with dozens of atmospheric levels, draw power from the Earth, and struggle for the soul of the world itself. Test your skills against a host of foes in unique solitaire-style turn-based combat!

  • Innovative, strategic, turn-based combat.
  • Blast the Enemy's monstrous lieutenants with a satisfying range of spells and abilities.
  • Gather powers from the shattered landscape to heal your mind and enhance your magic.
  • Choose your own path through a dark, folkloric story.
  • Three difficulty settings ranging from relaxed to nightmare.
  • Duel your way to the citadel, and defeat your foe once and for all!

Ancient Enemy is the latest iteration of inventive card game design from Grey Alien Games, this time in collaboration with famed Scottish game artist Jen Pattison, and renowned games designer Jim Rossignol.

Ancient Enemy is an atmospheric turn-based adventure in the spirit of masterpieces such as Darkest Dungeon and Slay The Spire!

Hello! I just purchased this today and I'm also having an issue getting a Steam key for the game. Did you get resolution w/ itch support on the previous Steam key issue?

Hi sorry to hear that. The last person just emailed me and I sent them a key. Then eventually itch support got them their key too. Just send me an email with your receipt and I'll sort it.

Oops turns out this was my bad. We ran out of keys! I've uploaded some more so this should be OK for future sales but might not work for yours. Is there a button you can click to claim your key? If it fails, just email me: info@greyaliengames.com

I just got this and it says it comes with a steam key, but it doesn't show it on the "thank you for purchasing" page. Does it no longer come with a steam key?


Hi. Thanks for your purchase and sorry you are having that problem. It does come with a Steam key and I checked there are some keys left. I don't know how itch.io normally works from an end user point of view. Can you ask via itch.io support please? They should be able to help.

Yes, thank you. I'll contact them.


If you don't get any luck with them, let me know again. Thx

I sent itch support an email about the steam key and attached pictures of my purchase page and have not heard back from them. Sorry for being a pain.


Sorry to hear that. Please email me at info@greyaliengames.com and I'll sort it out for you.

looks amazing!
