Voyage to Farland is some old-school Japanese roguelike action

Sometimes you see a trailer for a game and think, "Yeah, that's some real old-school stuff right there." From the video above, you can tell Voyage to Farland harks back to the 16-bit era but developer Patrick Casey is puttin...

Little house of horrors: FranknJohn is one adorable roguelike

FranknJohn has to be one of the cutest Kickstarter projects I've seen, especially given the fact that it's a roguelike set in a haunted house full of nods to B-movies. Plus, the titular FranknJohn himself has a stake going t...

Teleglitch's big update adds a new Arena Practice mode

Teleglitch didn't grab me in the same way other roguelikes have... okay, I mean it didn't grab me the way Spelunky grabbed me (and refused to let go). Part of it that has to go down to the fact I kept dying and dying really q...

You should consider getting Desktop Dungeons at half price

My original intention was to inform you that Desktop Dungeons is $7.49 this week on Steam until Friday morning, and that you should play it because it's real good. Hard as hell, but good. That was until I noticed another game...

Galak-Z is like Spelunky by way of Macross  photo
Galak-Z is like Spelunky by way of Macross
by Steven Hansen

Galak-Z has gone through some changes since we first heard about it. The space shooter from 17-bit Studios (Skulls of the Shogun) has jumped on the roguelike train. I mean space train. Damn. I messed that up. 

I messed up plenty playing Galak-Z as well. It took a while just to unlearn Luftrausers flying controls, though that constant fear from imminent danger remains from a multitude of enemies. Peons, Gundam-esque mecha, space spiders. 17-bit's Jake Kazdal explains that Galak-Z has the best AI around.

It's certainly aggressive, with a little bit of wiliness.

Risk of Rain is worth getting for $3.39 on Steam

One of my favorite roguelikes, Risk of Rain, is running a 48-hour sale on Steam right now. It's currently marked down to $3.39 (66 percent off), which is a price worth jumping at. There's also a four-pack available for $10.19...

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth might get a level editor as DLC

Asked if The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth would have a publicly available level editor, designer Edmund McMillen responded, yeah, that might eventually happen. "The editor won't be in a state to go public so we won't be releasin...

You can play Crypt of the Necrodancer with a DDR mat

The infectiously rhythmic Crypt of the Necrodancer (I hardly even know her!) was one of our games of the show last year at PAX Prime. It's back at PAX East, so Holmes tried to do an interview while playing. On a DDR mat. Whi...

Below is a hardcore game that you'll want to take your time with photo
Below is a hardcore game that you'll want to take your time with
by Brett Makedonski

Ever since Below was teased at Microsoft's E3 press briefing last year, it's been one of the titles that I've been most intrigued by. The art style and the fact that Capy Games was the developer were the two main reasons for my interest. Okay, those were the only reasons, because pretty much nothing else about Below has been revealed.

Capy's finally showing Below off at PAX East, and it is nothing like I expected it to be. That aside, my excitement remains completely intact.

When I see an artistic indie title, I subconsciously assume that it's an inviting game. It might not necessarily be easy, but something that anyone can eventually get the hang of. Below doesn't look to be like that, as it's a procedurally-generated rogue-like that's meant to appeal to the hardcore demographic.

Yup, Capy is also bringing Below to Steam

Capy never said its Xbox One roguelike Below would come to Steam -- but it also didn't deny that it might, noting back in August that the game was a timed exclusive on Microsoft's platform. Now, right before Below's first public showing at PAX East, it's been officially confirmed for Steam in an atmospheric new trailer. People attending the convention: go play this beautiful thing.

Popup Dungeon brings a papercraft tabletop RPG to life

Running through tabletop role-playing games can be fun, but it can also be a huge amount of work for an average dungeon master. Not only does the role require crafting scenarios and stories, more industrious DMs physically b...

Cellar Door wants to do another Rogue Legacy, but not yet

Cellar Door Games didn't get its start with the "rogue-lite" Rogue Legacy -- it previously found success in making browser-based games -- but that's likely going to be the title we associate with the studio for years to come....

Rogue Legacy became profitable within its first hour on sale

Rogue Legacy was one of my favorite games of 2013, so I had to attend the postmortem talk on its development at the Game Developers Conference this year. Their main point of focus was developing games on a budget. Brothers Te...

The Hero Trap lets you play as a berserk luchador bear

"Lightning fast dungeon crawler" may seem like an oxymoron, but the trailer above for The Hero Trap shows what it means by that: frenetic action gameplay within an ever-changing combination of dungeon arenas. To be honest, I...
