Tangledeep [Steam, Official Site], a dungeon crawler inspired by classic 16-bit RPGs has been announced as having a release next week and it will include Linux support.


On July 19th it will release on Steam in Early Access, but it already looks incredibly polished. It will be priced at $14.99, with no price changed planned once the game is finished.

About the game
QuoteTangledeep combines the 16-bit graphics and polish of classic SNES-era RPGs with elements from roguelikes and dungeon crawlers to create a magical experience for players of all skill levels. Trapped in underground villages with no memory of the world at the surface, you must survive an ever-changing labyrinth to discover what lies above. Experience rich, tactical, turn-based gameplay as you explore a sprawling dungeon that’s different each time you play. Tangledeep features a customizable job system and hundreds of collectible items that allow you to approach each playthrough in a totally new way!


Features
  • Experience finely-tuned, procedurally-generated gameplay as you complete quests and collect items.

  • Master deep, tactical combat across 9 unique jobs.

  • Choose between two game modes – Heroic Mode (with permadeath – the way the game was intended to be played), and Adventure Mode (no permadeath).

  • Share progress between characters by using a banking system – or planting magic trees and raising monsters in town.

  • Take in the scenery – with stunning 16-bit graphics and carefully handcrafted maps!

  • Play while listening to a beautiful soundtrack from award-winning composers.


I should be getting a review key, so expect some thoughts.

This looks awesome. Will wait to see what your comments are but I'm eager to pick this up and try it. Only thing so far I don't like is the fog of war or what ever you call it. Darking the map in areas you explored is annoying.

I played it about 2 hours. It has some common Unity issues in fullscreen (but i simply go windowed, move the window around, fullscreen again, and it's fixed). Also got a corrupted data somehow, main menu was not active anymore (not related to the mouse issue in some Unity games), and i had to delete the Unity related folder...

Anyway, the game itself feels like TOME, only less polished and deep obviously, as it's much younger, with some nice classes and skills (i mostly played the Floromancer, a short range mage, summoning a pet plant, wine walls, and alike).

I want to play more.
