Nice! Crypt of the NecroDancer is getting a DLC prequel

Are you playing Crypt of the NecroDancer? You should be playing Crypt of the NecroDancer. It's a rhythm-based roguelike in which you hop around dungeons to the beat of music, a novel mechanic that ends up being enjoyable -- not burdensome, ...
