    Slay The Spire

    Slay The Spire is a dungeon crawling rogue-lite that released on steam early access last week. It's quite polished for an early access game, and it has been scratching my binding of issac itch recently since runs are random every time you play them.

    Gameplay video:
      Spoiler:


    I wouldn't be put off by the "deckbuilding" aspects, the cards in this game are more like recyclable skills that you can add and remove as you go through the levels.

    It's also FTL levels of hard, I have dozens of runs and only ever won once in 20 hours of gameplay.

    I have been having tons of fun with it and I would recommend it even in early access.

    Bump, this has been blowing up on Twitch this week as a casual 2nd game atm. Highly positive Early Access reviews.

    I've been watching ReformistTM's Let's Play of this on YT. And also although these type of games and graphic style don't appeal to me (aka "actually turn me off") at all, that one made me have a look at the Steam store page for it and I was tempted to buy it.

    spelling FTW!

    It's crazy addictive. And although it is hard to win, it rarely feels unfair

    [Hipster Mode On] Dream Quest, the game Slay the Spire shamelessly rips off, was one of 2014's best games IMO. It didn't get as much traction because of the game's graphics or severe lack of. But it got the attention of Richard Garfield and Blizzard devs, who couldn't stop playing it. It even got its creator a job on Hearthstone where he is now a senior dev. [Hipster Mode Off]

    If you like this type of gameplay, you should also check out Dream Quest and Monster Slayers (at least they had the decency to credit DQ as an inspiration).

    "No art is original".

    Still, are you sure they haven't come up with any new/better mix of mechanics?

    Pretty sure they have or I wouldn't have bothered buying Monster Slayers and Slay the Spire myself.
