Roguelikes & Roguelites51

I realized that there was no proper topic for these kinds of games, so here we go.

For those unaware, roguelikes are games taking off of a game from 1980 called Rogue. It featured permadeath, procedurally generated levels, tile-based levels, and turned base combat, and thus the term roguelike was used to describe games that use the same mechanics. "Roguelite" is a blanket term for games that follow the roguelike formula, but take off with unique styles and mechanics that make it more of a roguelike-like if anything.

I'd love to get a discussion going about some roguelikes/lites here, since it's where I spend the majority of my time on on steam nowadays.

I'm also gonna be posting "roguelike showcases" to bring some more attention to them on my alt Charlotte, so it's easier to see them there.

PS my favorite roguelike game of all time is Nuclear Throne, try it ty!

^^^^i have around 5 hours in it solo and around 3 co op with my sister and so far its quickly becoming one of my fav roguelikes

im a fair bit biased here tho cause necrodancer is my all time fav roguelike and zelda is my fav nintendo franchise but believe me when i say its well worth the 25 bucks it costs and im excited to finish this playthrough simply so i can immediately start another one and experience this all over again as link

[...]The release [of The Binding of Isaac: repentance] has been postponed to winter 2019. So judging by the way the release dates of the previous DLC's were handled, we'll probably have to wait till summer 2020

I wanted to bring some attention to different genres of roguelikes through this review, and one that I've slept on buying for quite a whlie was Steredenn.

I shoulda bought this game a long time ago

As a shoot 'em up, this game provides many different play styles with weapons and ship types to mess around with. Whether you enjoy a bullet hell or setting the universe ablaze, this game really allows for a variety of playstyles which is what I look for a lot on roguelikes; variety.

But the main draw of this game to me is it's very well composed soundtrack and graphics. Flying through space as beautiful backdrops slowly move as you traverse them, do not get much in the way of the actual gameplay but makes every final stand feel that much more grand as you're on your last health point. A lot of time and effort was put into perfecting this game, so I definitely recommend checking it out to anyone who wants the sh*t beat out of them to make that eventual victory all the better.

Gunfire reborn is a really nice, new roguelite.


I also made a video on me running through the game (spoilers!!) if you want to see what it's like.
