The Big Steam Roguelike Sale

Posted by Rampant Coyote on April 23, 2015

I don’t know whether to be proud or embarrassed over how many of these are in my library right now. Not all from Steam – I have some through GOG.com, some through Desura, and at least one stand-alone direct from the developer.

Whatever… now, if you ask how many I’ve really, earnestly played to a point where I got pretty familiar with it, that number dwindles somewhat.

But whatever the case… I guess now is the time (between now and April 27th at least) to get your Roguelike / Roguelike-Like / Procedural Death Labyrinth love on.

Steam’s Roguelike Sale

I hesitate to give recommendations, because so many I haven’t played enough to really get a firm feel of them, and I’d probably end up recommending half the list. But if I were starting my collection over, I’d probably choose Spelunky, FTL, EldritchTales of Maj’Eyal, Dungeons of Dredmor,  Desktop Dungeons, and Delver. I will be adding Crypt of the Necrodancer and NEO Scavenger to my collection as it is, because I’ve heard good things about them.  I have Steam Marines, Risk of Rain, and Rogue Legacy in my collection already and really look forward to playing them, but I haven’t yet. Oh, and The Pit is pretty good too. Dang. There, I went and recommended half the list, didn’t I? And now I feel bad for the ones I didn’t mention, and I know some of ’em are pretty good. There are also some good ones that are conspicuous for their absence from the list…

Ah, well. Anyway, cool stuff!

    I got One Way Heroics on a whim yesterday (1.01€…), larked around half an hour with it, was worth the price :).
    I’ll get back to it here and there.

    For me, I think that NEO Scavenger was worth the admittance price. I don’t know how many hours I’ve sunk into it, but its way over 40.
