TumbleSeed is a different kind of roguelike


A rolly one!

What exactly is a "rolly roguelike?" The second you see TumbleSeed in motion, you'll understand. It's a game about a seed dodging holes and other dangers while rolling ever-upward to the top of a mountain. Ahead of a showing this weekend at PAX West in Seattle, there's a teaser trailer and word that it's coming to PC, Mac, and PlayStation 4.

"Along the way you'll gain seed powerups that provide the tools you need to outwit the mountain's many obstacles," writes developer Benedict Fritz. "Will you stock up on thorns to defend yourself and clear the path of enemies? Or will you summon a rain cloud to fill in holes to make traversal easier? Or did you buy the poison seed from a shop to wreak high-risk havoc? We've been playing TumbleSeed for two years now, and the game still surprises us every day with the situations it throws at us."

One of its creators, Greg Wohlwend, has a wonderful track record (Threes, Ridiculous Fishing, and Puzzlejuice, to name a few of the projects he's had a hand in), and I've never played anything like this before. I'm excited. And nervous that I'm going to be horrible at it. But mostly excited!
