I'm beyond sold on roguelike platformer TowerClimb


9:00 PM on 04.05.2013



With the deadline for the next batch of approved Steam Greenlight games coming up, I've found myself browsing the service these past few days looking for gems. One title that caught my eye was TowerClimb, a roguelike platformer that's searching for upvotes but is also currently playable as a work-in-progress on the developer Davioware's site for five bucks.

This trailer is what immediately sold me on the game, so I suggest you go ahead and watch that right now. The minimalistic art may not look like much at first glance, though nice lighting effects help differentiate it in a great way. And that music -- this feels like it was lost long ago and only recently discovered. Let's give it some love.
