Phantom Trigger is, in the words of its development team, a "neon slasher," and it's slated to arrive on the Nintendo Switch later this year. But don't let pink and teal pixel art fool you, it's more than just Hyper Light Drifter-lite.
Catacomb Kids is a mix between a roguelike and a platformer, with equal parts magic potions and goomba stomps. You can also chop body parts off pretty much everything. It's one heck of a challenge and a damn Cool Indie Game.
I have fond memories of hack and slash RPG adventures like Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance and while I love Diablo 3, variety is the spice of life! Enter Brutal (self stylised as [email protected]), a roguelike dungeon crawler by Stormcloud Games coming to the Playstation 4 on August 9. With a great marriage of ASCII influenced style and procedurally generated dungeons, it's great for people looking to scratch an itch for adventure. Join me in this video to see how far I get in Brutal's dangerous depths!
When games let me roll a character before I start, I always make someone who seems cool, rather than min-maxing stats. In Death Road to Canada, I wanted someone who'd be fun to hang around with in a zombie apocalypse, rather than a simple zombie-clobbering machine. Given this, it's probably no surprise most of my forays didn't go that well, but I had a great time trying to steer a band of pixelated misfits to Canada.
I've been looking forward to the full release of Darkest Dungeon, even though the game is one of the better examples of Early Access done right. It's an intriguing roguelike-RPG with a fantastic aesthetic, and it's the kind of game you'll want to set aside some time for.
Fortunately the developers have decided to help everyone by scheduling it in a window where you're likely to have a bit of spare time: January next year.
