Selected for more than a dozen festivals and award shows across 4 continents, Crypt of the NecroDancer is one of the world’s most loved independent games. It was the #1 selling game on Steam at its Early Access launch, and the #3 top rated Steam game of all time at its full launch.
Crypt of the NecroDancer was born of the desire to make a roguelike game “fair”. As a roguelike gamers, we have seen our share of deaths! But the most frustrating deaths are those from which we learn nothing, or had no chance to avoid. Some roguelikes, like Nethack, boast fairly high win rates for elite players. This is good — it indicates that, while there is randomness, there are ways to tame that randomness and overcome it. However, to become such an elite Nethack player requires dedicated study of it’s lore, an excellent memory, and patience. We wanted to create a game that is fair (a high win rate among elite players), yet without the onerous knowledge requirements. Crypt of the NecroDancer is our attempt at achieving this goal. It is turn based, but the turns are of an enforced length. Lack of time to think renders impossible the careful study and patience of the expert NetHack player. Instead, skill and experience in battle rule the day. No more random deaths — there is always a way out, for the skilled NecroDancer player!
Our friends at Blitworks have done an outstanding job bringing NecroDancer to the Xbox One. We know you will enjoy their excellent work!
See you in the crypt!”
