Steam Early Access: Dungeon of the Endless looks awesome

I don't think we've talked about Dungeon of the Endless. Let's. The self-described "roguelike-like" tasks you with exploring dungeons as you head to the planet's surface all while protecting the generator of your crashed spa...

Review: Desktop Dungeons photo
Review: Desktop Dungeons
by Darren Nakamura

Desktop Dungeons has been around for a few years in some form or another. The original low-fidelity freeware alpha has been playable since early 2010, and we saw the first bits of the updated beta in 2011, where the project existed for more than two years. Finally, Desktop Dungeons has seen its official full release, and for the most part, it is the same as it ever was.

That may sound like a condemnation, but anybody who has experience with Desktop Dungeons knows it isn't. Being the same core game with a few added frills is the best thing it could have done.

Review: Risk of Rain photo
Review: Risk of Rain
by Darren Nakamura

Roguelike elements have been steadily gaining popularity in the past few years, especially among independent developers. Titles like The Binding of Isaac, FTL: Faster Than Light, and Spelunky have taken the ideas of random level generation and short games usually ending in permanent character death, and applied them masterfully to each of their own gameplay genres.

Risk of Rain follows in those footsteps, applying the same roguelike mechanics to an exploration-based sidescrolling shooter. Like the aforementioned games, it can be brutal, with punishingly impossible scenarios and quick defeat for those who are not prepared. Unlike them, Risk of Rain suffers from a few technical issues that detract from what is otherwise a great experience.

This solo eggplant run in Spelunky is a must-watch

It's been some time since we've posted a Spelunky run on Destructoid but, I think you'll agree, this one is worth seeing. If you're familiar enough with the game to know about the eggplant -- it's earned by sacrificing a Mys...

Review: The Guided Fate Paradox photo
Review: The Guided Fate Paradox
by Wesley Ruscher

One of the greatest things about video games is the opportunity they afford us to take on roles we'd normally never have the chance to do. For example, in The Guided Fate Paradox, the latest from the team that brought us the Disgaea: Hour of Darkness -- that job is to become a God.

While playing the God, or a god, is not new to the universe of gaming (Populous, Black & White, and ActRaiser to name a few) the way it is implemented by Nippon Ichi Software leads to quite the unusual set of circumstances and one hell of a good time.

It has been ages since we first learned that the bite-sized puzzle roguelike Desktop Dungeons would be getting a full release, and it certainly has come a long way from the original freeware version in the time it has spent ...

Confederate Express Kickstarter shows awesome sprite work

I tend to shy away from videogame Kickstarter campaigns that don't show much gameplay or that seem too early in development, but what little we have of the tactical RPG Confederate Express is just too good not to share. The ...

Review: Legend of Dungeon photo
Review: Legend of Dungeon
by Fraser Brown

I was feeling pretty cocky when I entered the home of a classy vampire and her kitten chum. I had a magical sword, a hat that gave me Flash-like super speed, and more health-giving apples than you could possibly eat in a lifetime. But no amount of stabbing put the vampire back in the ground, because vampires don't give a crap about swords. 

As I grumpily turned around and planned to head out the door in defeat, the blood-sucking fiend exploded into an army of bats -- as they are wont to do. These tiny flying pests battered the hell out of me, and I was forced to consume many an apple in my righteous battle against them. With every last one sliced into little pieces, there was a glorious explosion, and I was showered in experience and gold. Success!

Feeling even more cocky than when I first entered the room, I decided to kill the kitten too. Now, before you string me up for slaying a cute wee animal, remember that it was living with a vampire. It had clearly chosen a life of complete evil. I struck it once, and then I was dead ten seconds later, forced to start my adventure all over again. 

This is Legend of Dungeon, a game where kittens are more dangerous than vampires and where drinking random potions might make you inexplicably vomit rainbows. There are 26 floors of this madness, and they must be climbed down and then up again if you want to claim the treasure found in the dungeon's depths. Oh yeah, and it was made by two people living in a tree house.
