Get down, get down. Welcome to a new experience. Music and mayhem combine as players move to the rhythm with their own MP3s or a crazy soundtrack while fighting back against an onslaught of evil things, grabbing weapons, buying items at shops, and other RPG-like behavios. The Crypt of the NecroDancer is a fully developed indie game hitting Windows PC, Mac OS X, and Linux on April 23, 2015 via Steam. SteamOS support is also included and if you just can’t wait then Early Access is available for purchase now.
A keyboard, controller, or USB dance pad are all acceptable accessories that can be used to play this game. Dungeons change every time you play and some of the enemies include skeletons, dragons, and zombies, but that’s not all of them by a long shot. Serving up retro graphics with a new gameplay spin that infuses music into every step, Crypt of the NecroDancer aims to stand out in the crowd of “Rogue-like” games on Steam by offering more soul to its RPG flavor inspired by other Music games along the road.
