Our first update comes from the auto-battler roguelite Supernova Tactics.

The next update comes from the tabletop RPG roguelite Demeo.

The final news comes from the developer Fuzz Force who is well-known for his game Fuzz Force: Spook Squad.
After the success of his dice-based deckbuilder roguelite, Fuzz Force has announced that he has been working on a new game called “Cardterrupters”.
The game is also a deckbuilder roguelite, but unlike Spook Squad, Cardterrupters has a real-time battle system, and all the cards or enemy skills take real time to cast and enemies can be interrupted while they’re preparing to act, and vice versa.
As of writing, Cardterrupters is slated for a 2023 release.
