[PC] Curse of the Dead Gods

Another "roguelite" ARPG coming to Early Access soon. It has a nice comic book-style aesthetic to distinguish itself from the flood of such games on Steam, and the backing of Focus Home Interactive, if that matters to anyone. No trailer yet, but there is some play footage on YT I link below showcasing some fun combat, and sharp animation and lighting effects. Definitely an above-average effort worth checking out. The developer's last game was Masters of Anima [ > ], by the way, which has been described as a cross between "Pikmin and Zelda", believe it or not. So that one's worth checking out as well, though its art direction is at a definite lower level than this, which might be a stumbling block for some (and perhaps part of the reason it didn't sell very well?)

Your greed will lead you to death, but that is not an escape. Rise to fight again. Delve deeper again. Defy the malignant deities that linger in this place. Battle through hordes of enemies in dark, cavernous passages filled with traps and secrets of all sorts - fire-spewing statues, explosives, hidden spikes, and worse.

Collect mystical Relics and an arsenal of weapons to make yourself unstoppable. Corruption builds in you with every step - encourage or ignore it, but each powerful curse can be a double-edged sword.

- A skill-based roguelike exploring a cruel, dark temple made of endless rooms and corridors
- Swords, spears, bows, guns - wield these and many more
- Unique curses influence each attempt, putting a twist on every action
- Dozens of enemies, with powerful champions and deadly bosses to face off against
