StarCrawlers Chimera has been announced by Juggernaut Games as their newest modern first-person dungeon crawler.

The same team that created the rather good StarCrawlers from 2017 are back, bringing with them StarCrawlers Chimera which will be a highly customizable cyberpunk dungeon crawler. "Customize your skills to suit your playstyle. Are you a stealthy cyberninja? A crazed pyromaniac soldier? Mind-bending void psyker? Or… a bit of each? Design your character by selecting from 25+ skill trees with unique abilities in each tree. Skill trees are a mix of fan favorite classes from StarCrawlers, weapon specialist trees, utility sets, and more - with extra skill trees in the works!"

Features:

  • Wage tactical turn-based RPG battles against futuristic enemies.
  • Procedurally-generated floors provide new challenges and rewards.
  • Choose your own difficulty mode - with optional permadeath.
  • 100+ abilities and 25+ skill trees to customize your play style with Muscle, Guile, and Intellect skills.
  • 20+ different enemy types and rare spawns with unique abilities and loot.
  • 20+ weapons of different rarities ranging from plasma rifles to carbonite blades to scintillating donuts.
  • 30+ items of gear to stop your insides from becoming outsides.
  • More features added with each new content patch!

Fund it on Kickstarter and follow on Steam.

I keep reading that title as "Starcharmers" and now I want *that* game.

I liked the previous game, but it didn't really blow me away.

However, they definitely pulled that one off successfully, so I'd put this one down as a rather low-risk affair as far as KS campaigns go.

Correct me if im wrong but didn't the original starcrawlers have a seriously annoying mouse bug on the Linux release that the dev's were aware of but never fixed.
Im saying correct me but i ended up playing the game via proton because of it.

As for the game i found it to be mediocre. It's a shame as the concept and art was nice.
