As we’ve reported yesterday, the “Going Rogue” event is currently ongoing, featuring a wide variety of roguelite games, as well as games from the roguelike, souls-like, and metroidvania genres, all of which are on sale.
With all of these amazing games on a discount at the same time, it’s understandable that picking the right game or games could be hard, especially if you’re on a tight budget. Luckily, we’re here to help you out!
To help you decide which game you should pick, Puppeht, Kinix, and yours truly, have listed 5 of our picks on which games you should pick up. We’ve also added a tiny description of each game so you’ll have a little bit of an idea about the game.
- Dead Cells – This is a no-brainer. It’s one of the best roguelite games of all time, and if you have an opportunity to get it on sale, you should grab it!
- FTL – I feel like this game has been overlooked with the influx of great roguelite games, including Into the Breach from the same developer. But make no mistake, FTL is a masterpiece of a game and one of the first highly-rated roguelite games out there, and for $2.49, that is a big steal!
- Battle Bands – This game has only been released a little over a month ago, but it has become one of my favorite roguelite deckbuilders out there. It’s a surprisingly deep game that can be played solo or multiplayer.
- Cavity Busters – Another game that’s recently released, but looks incredibly promising. Don’t let the wacky exterior fool you because this game is deep!
- The Last Spell – One of the more unique roguelites out there, your mission is to defend your town from a MASSIVE horde of monsters in this TBT game.
- Slay the Spire – Arguably one of the most influential roguelites available. Set off a revolution in deck-building roguelites. If you don’t already have this, you need to buy it.
- Enter the Gungeon – Another bread and butter roguelite. Beautiful pixel art, stellar gameplay, and lots of bullets.
- Guild of Dungeoneering – Incredible deck-builder roguelite with great music. $12 is a great price.
- Moonlighter – Moonlighter is a steal for $5. A great mix-up between a dungeon-crawler roguelite and shop simulator.
- Pawnbarian – Chill puzzle roguelite about chess. Still gets updates and has lots of difficulty scaling.
- Crypt of the Necrodancer – This one-of-a-kind roguelite where all your actions are tied to the beat is one of my favorite games ever made.
- Starward Rogue – A true combination of shmup bullet hell and roguelike elements, a hidden gem well worth checking out.
- City of Brass – Ever wondered what Spelunky would be like in first-person? Find out in this Arabian FPS roguelite.
- TumbleSeed – Control a ball-shaped seed with nothing but a balance beam and try to cleanse the mountain in this unique roguelite.
- Hyperspace Dogfights – Pilot a ship using only thrusters and rockets and take out hundreds of enemy ships with satisfying combat and tons of run variety.
