Crypt of the NecroDancer has left Early Access and has launched fully on Steam! Your game should automatically update to the latest version. (Make sure that the loading screen says v1.0 or higher, or you may not yet have the latest build.)


We have had such an amazing time working on Crypt of the NecroDancer that we thought we’d let you take a peek behind the scenes to see how it all went down! We took the game to festivals all around the world, meeting fans, making lifelong friends, and learning how to make the game the best it could be. We hope you enjoy our minidocumentary and the full game! Here’s to two and a half years that none of us will ever forget.

Thank you!!! ːnecroheartː ːnecroheartː ːnecroheartː

You will die - a lot. But the mechanics are so solid in this game, that there is never any question as to who's at fault when you die; and that's refreshing. I've been sucked into this game for hours, intending to sit down for a short play session, only to end up trying again and again to improve my skills, and progress. In the age of depressing, gritty, gaming-realism, this game is ridiculously fun and quirky, and I hope the creators know what a gem of a game they've got here. And the music? I don't even know where to start. I only wish there was more of this boogie based dungeoncrawler...

Did I mention lots of female protagonists?

Early access done right, I don't know much negative I could say. Deserves the praise.

- Simple and well executed mechanic with a steep learning curve, but well worth learning. There's always a challenge.
- There isn't interesting story, but you can disable the cutscenes.
- Lots of relevant options, including key rebind.
- Characters range from 'not-that-difficult' to 'only-a-god-could-do-this.'
- Alt+F4 works.

15€ is good price.

You'll like this if :
You are a fan of rogue likes
Like Spelunky
Appreciate good game soundtracks

You'll hate this is :
You have no rhythm and things like DDR drive you nuts
Get bored with casual quick games
Think old school graphics are horrible


Crypt of the Necrodancer is a light rogue like game that owes a lot of its design philosophy to Spelunky. It does away with the depth of most roguelikes and instead concentrates on serving up a bite size piece of dungeon crawling in a challenging cute form, with many of the game design elements from Spelunky directly converted into its top down view point.

So far, so similar.

But CotND has a gimmick up its sleeve. The soundtrack. Everything in the game moves to the beat of the soundtrack, animations, movement, attacks - even your own input has to move to the beat of the soundtrack, like some mad version of Dance Dance Revolution where each step lets you explore further into the dungeon.

Move out of step with the beat and you will be punished - losing bonus and also potentially missing your chance to move or attack. Learn to step with the beat, learn how the monsters move with the beat, and suddenly you will be popping along to this fiendishly addictive game.

If the idea of playing a roguelike to the sound of a beat sounds weird - it kind of is. And I'll admit I wasn't entirely sure if this would turn out to be a flop or a cool idea. But once you play it, it just makes sense, and adds a very unique aspect to the game - that of timing. Where you have to move to the beat - staying still just isn't an option, and yet a move will push you into the path of a deadly foe, or out of striking range of a target. A new dimension of just how to "wait" or move in such a way as to hit an enemy becomes part of the game.

The soundtrack itself that supports the main gimmick of the game is absolutely top notch, and there are a few great touches to the game - such as the singing shopkeepers - that just make this game work really very well indeed.

An all round excellent experiment in combining the winning formula of Spelunky with a top down roguelike all to the beat of a soundtrack. Don't be put off because this game is kind of... left field. It manages to weld everything together beautifully, and is definitely a game where you will just want One More Try, because This Time, I've Got It.

It is so original that the experience cannot be well explained, It has to be played to be understood. A perfect example for the industry to take on interesting (original) concepts (mechanics) rather than great budget with poor (or overused) concepts. Amazing and well executed. The pixel art might be tough to look at, at first, but in time it won´t bother.

SUPER FUN!
I don't even like rouge-likes, but this is a really fun game! Short and to the point. Easy to play but hard to beat! And when you die you can jump right back in, with a new dungeon.

The music is great too!

Everyone should get this game

Twelve hours so far and this game is being incredibly fun! It's very casual if you just want to spend time, but at the same time you actually have a lot of progress the more you play the game.

You pick up diamonds that let you buy upgrades, so everytime that you play the game, you're having a bit of progress and just wasting some minutes on a casual game. Also, the sound beat based game mechanics are insane! I highly recommend the game!

THEIR TWISTED SOULS BOUND TO THE BEAT.

Seriously, you will be bumpin' your way over through all the dancing monsters you could imagine to the kickin' toons of the infamous Danny B. If you like roguelikes and sweet music, don't pass this one up.

My first serious review. This game has changed my opinion so much from the first time I played it I wanted to write this incase I can convince at least one other person who may have had similiar feelings as me when I first played it.

I tried playing this game a few times as Cadence when I first got it.
It was somewhat fun, although not enough to keep my attention.

Then I tried playing as the Bard.

It was fun not having to worry about the beat of music, and instead just learning enemy movement and attack patterns.
When you play as the Bard the whole game becomes turn-based. Each move you make causes the enemies to do one movement.
A solid rogue-like. You basically play over and over until you get familiar with all the enemies, each time you feel yourself getting better and better at this game.

I was in zone 2. Just doing another run, when it hit me. Even as the Bard I found myself moving to the beat of the music. I was using my shovel to dig through dirt which added its own sound to the music playing. I was realizing that some of the movements I was making when fighting a particular enemy was almost like doing dance moves.

It hit me. This game is freaking genius. Playing through a few times as the Bard is almost a necessity and I wish the game developers would have somehow made it more obvious that this should be a first step.

Binding of Isaac used to be my favorite Rogue-Like, now I can say without a doubt this is my new favorite.

I've played this game for last 4 months of its Early Access. It already looked very promising and awesome. With the release it took me only a few hours of playtime to confirm everything I was ready to write about.

This is a rogue-like rhythm dungeon crawler, as you've probably read on the store page. The genre is quite unique - its gameplay is a blend of turn-based combat but it's constrained by the boundaries of the "beats" of the music of the level (unlike a lot of rhythm games it's very forgiving on beat accuracy and there's a reason for that: it's quite action-packed, so when you have a few skeletons, fiery dogs and a dragon converging on you - you can't really follow the beats within 20% margin what is usual for rhythm games).

First things first: this is a rhythm game and its soundtrack wirtten by Danny Baranowsky is just pure essence of awesomeness. Randomly generated levels are extremely well done. When I say extremely I mean it. This game doesn't have unbeatable generations. It may be easier of harder, but it's a fair rogue-like, if you die - it's your fault. It's not like rogue's tale when you can be killed on first turn the moment you spawn. So you won't really be stomped by something you can't beat.

With the release the game has been augmented with some kind of plot which makes it a bit more beautiful than a rogue-like w/o a plot. Also this game even during Early Access didn't have any gamebreaking bugs. In 80h I never had a single crash or anything else that'd ruin my gaming experience, since technically this is kind of a day1 for thi game - it's exremely polished, which is a good example what Early Access system should be used for and how.

With cutscenes you are being rewarded with when you complete "zones" with different characters, with easier and harder characters themselves, with a big variety of items, leaderboards, daily challenges - delivering beatdowns to the beat in this game is guaranteed to be one your best rogue-like experiences ever.

if you like roguelikes/roguelites/rouge things, whatever you want to call them - get this game
if you like rhythm games (remember those?) - get this game
if you like both genres - get this game

the music is wonderful, it allows you to use your own music on your PC and has recently added steam workshop support.

also, it has a daily challenge mode, which is always appreciated.

tl;dr - get this game
