New release: Steam Marines

Word reaches me that Steam Marines, the sci-fi outer space squad-based tactics roguelike from developer Worthless Bums, has been released after more than two years in development. True to their name, Worthless Bums haven’t provided us with a narrative summary, so I’m just going to write the game an ad hoc one from memory right […]

New release: Dragon’s Dungeon

Word reaches me that there’s a new Android roguelike out by the name of Dragon’s Dungeon. Created by Russian developer LunarPixel, Dragon’s Dungeon is distinguishable from most graphical roguelikes by the inclusion of an optional “easy mode,” which permits a slain character to respawn with all of his / her loot. The game also includes […]

New-ish release: ADOM

ADOM is not new. In fact, ADOM has been around for literally decades. According to creator Thomas Biskup, ADOM (short for “Ancient Domains of Mystery”) is one of the Big Five roguelikes in existence, notable in large part for being the first roguelike to add to include “vibrant towns, NPC dialog, and quests” to the […]

New release: Famaze

If you’ve been reading this site for a long time, you may remember me mentioning Oryx and his highly popular roguelike sprite sets back in 2011. After years of enabling roguelikes from other developers, it looks like Oryx has finally stepped up to the plate with a roguelike of his own! The game in question […]

New release: The Drop

I know what you’re thinking. “They finally did it: someone went out there and made a dubsteb RPG.” Great guess! But nope. “The Drop” refers not to the musical term, but rather to a new roguelike created by TildeOne Games. Well, okay, maybe not exactly new: the Drop was released in mid-August, though it did […]

New release: Rogue Legacy

As was foretold, the sidescrolling genealogical action roguelike-like Rogue Legacy has now been released into the world. There’s a special release trailer up, quoting John Walker’s preview of the game from RockPaperShotgun (though there’s also a full review from the ever-eloquent Adam Smith up): You can buy Rogue Legacy for $15 direct from the developer […]

New release: Diehard Dungeon

I just found about this one: Diehard Dungeon is an action roguelike in the Zelda style, a bit like Delver’s Drop, which evidently released on the XBox 360’s XBLIG service hack in September. This past Friday, on April 19th, it released for PC as well. Contrary to my deepest hopes and wishes, you do not […]

Claustrophobia: The Downward Struggle announced, paid alpha released

Claustrophobia: The Downward Struggle is a graphical roguelike in development by The Indie Forge. (Neither the developer nor the game seem to have an official website–look to the end of the article for links.) I don’t think there’s a narrative premise, but there is a rather wordy feature list: Expansive Random Generation – Everything from […]

New release: Sword of the Stars: The Pit

Sword of the Stars: The Pit is a sci-fi roguelike set (appropriately enough) in the Sword of the Stars universe. Developed by a small team from Kerberos Productions, The Pit was funded via just shy of $24,000 in contributions on IndieGoGo back in November and (apparently) released about three weeks ago. The premise: A deadly […]
