If I ever find myself locked in a dungeon, dancing will be my escape; this is what the trailer for Brace Yourself Games' Crypt of the NecroDancer has taught me. The game -- "a hardcore rhythm-based roguelike" -- is a veritable new one, as far as I can tell. In it, you'll perform actions to the beat in procedurally-generated dungeons. Just ... watch the trailer. It'll make sense.

If you have any concerns about the music quality itself, know that notable game composers DannyB and Alec Holowka are attached to NecroDancer. And since you can also load your own MP3s into the game, there shouldn't be anything to worry about on that front.

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake is not as simple as it looks

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake saw success on Kickstarter, and it's coming along nicely as evidence by our interview at PAX East. It looks super cute and simplistic, but there's way more depth than you'd imagine here. A deep ...more

The Darkest Dungeon gods were kind to me

Hot off its huge Kickstarter success, Darkest Dungeon is already in a playable-enough state to have a demo at PAX East 2014. Although the demo was only a short snippet of what's to come, it was easy to get a sense of the them...more

Punch frogs, get paid: New Curses 'N Chaos trailer

We got a brief look at the new Tribute Games joint, Curses 'N Chaos, at PAX East. It's a pared-down, arcade-like action game about two players cooperating to clear waves of foes before the timer hits zero. Super simple, but ...more
