Rhythmic dungeon crawler Crypt of the NecroDancerhas been fun to watch at expos, but soon enough we'll be able to play (and fail, likely repeatedly) on our own terms -- the game hits Steam Early Access for Windows, Mac, and Linux on Wednesday, July 30.
Even with that release date knowledge, I strongly recommend watching this launch trailer. It's informative yet quick to the point all while being pretty entertaining. I even laughed!
Beginning July 21 and leading up to the title's release at the end of this month, Brace Yourself Games will hold a NecroThon tournament with notable Twitch and YouTube personalities. That'll help pass the time and some of the prize money will go to charities.
And, not to be that bad influence in your life, but if you want to go all in for NecroDancer, there are third-party dance pads available.
