Capybara Games' Below drops in this summer

Below was one of my most anticipated games last year, but it was delayed into 2016 at the last moment. We won't have to wait for it much longer though, as Capy's new roguelike adventure will be coming this summer to Xbox One and PC. The new...   read

 
 
Strafe preview

I thought I was tired of roguelike platformers, but GoNNER suggests otherwise

As much as I don't think I need another super-tough platformer with roguelike elements in my life, maybe I do! I dig the unusual art and clickety-clackety sound design of GoNNER. Screenshots don't do the aesthetic much justice. This trailer...   read

Darkest Dungeon tips
Darkest Dungeon is a terrifically difficult game that delights in torturing the player. You could spend hours fine tuning the perfect party only to encounter a new enemy type or area that absolutely demolishes them. It's a na...   read

Darkest Dungeon review
Most games gloss right over the psychological effects of combat and stress. RPGs see parties of cheery young adventurers slaughter their way through entire countrysides worth of kobolds and giant rats for the sake of justice ...   read

Downwell is falling onto Android devices today

We all seem to love mobile rogue-lite Downwell here at Destructoid, what with it getting both a 10/10 score in Steven’s review and winning our mobile game of the year award. It’s just a shame that up to now it’s been an iO...   read

Want to hear the narrator for Darkest Dungeon say 'Dankest Dungeon?'

I've been playing a lot of Darkest Dungeon, and it's been a tense experience. It's a merciless game about horror, stress, and the frailty of humanity. A great deal of the grim tone is established by the grave intonations of its dour narrato...   read

While Rogue is commonly seen as where the roguelike genre got its start, there’s another game that is arguably just as influential to its formation: Nethack. Originally released way back in 1987, Nethack helped pave the way for the mo...   read
