Try out the demo for Ragtag Crew, a turn-based tactical rogue-lite

By - | Views: 13,687

With a demo arriving as part of the DreamHack Beyond event, Ragtag Crew seems like a promising upcoming turn-based tactical rogue-lite to sink your teeth into.

Plenty of options to build up a full squad of scavengers, that you will send across a wasteland in pursuit of profit, food and lots of battles too of course. The developer mentions that each class not only has the usual differing abilities but also a little personality thrown into the mix that will provide an "unrepeatable adventure", as the combat is broken up by little events and each choice you make changes the history of your squad with a big pool of events to pull from.

Game Features:

  • Each run, choose 3 characters out of 8 classes (some unlockable). Experiment with synergies and party compositions to slay everyone in your way!
  • Every character can choose a personality from the 7 available (some unlockable). These influence their dialogue, battle capabilities, relationships, morale, stats, and overall style — but most importantly, they can drastically change the course of events.
  • The heart of the game lies in the tough tactical fights. The enemies are strong, but often have flaws to exploit. Adapt, improve, overcome!
  • Slay bosses… or sneak past. These large and unique enemies come with their own mechanics and storylines. The rewards may be game-changing — but are you in a good enough condition to take them on? Sometimes it’s smarter to walk past a fight.
  • As you progress through the game, more options become available.
  • Every node on the map offers a text event. A smart choice can grant you loot, help two characters form a bond, or hint at the deeper truth behind the events. An unsuccessful one might end in a disaster.
  • Over the course of an adventure the party members will grow to become friends… or bitter enemies. Nudge their stories to receive unique events and outcomes!
  • From cute baby lizards to passionate fighter-pilgrims, all kinds of characters may aid you on your journey.
  • A mixture of post-apoc, Westerns, and sci-fi creates a relatable yet original world. "Firefly meets Douglas Adams."
  • Try again. Most bands of misfits fail — this is a roguelite, after all. But even failed runs bring progress in the form of unlockable classes, personalities, and items. You’ll be better equipped next time — and the game’s high variance offers high replayability.

Demo available on Steam. It's due for release later this year with Native Linux support.
