Longing for more Castlevania? Chasm could be our best bet

Children of Morta has all the ingredients to be the next great roguelike

The term "roguelike" has been bastardized a bit and can cause some confusion at times, but I think most people can think of a few traits that always persist. Permadeath, randomized level design and possibly powerups, and tough difficulty ar...   read
