BIG UPDATE! 2 new playable OSTs, new languages, and more!



You can now play Crypt of the NecroDancer using our epic new OST remixes from Virt and Girlfriend Records! Just go to the in-game options menu and select "CHANGE SOUNDTRACK" to assign "VIRT" or "GIRLFRIEND RECORDS" to your character of choice. Virt, the composer of the amazing soundtrack for Shovel Knight, has created a gorgeous "retro freestyle" soundtrack for us, while Girlfriend Records have delivered a pulse pounding synthwave OST.

So I picked this game up after hearing a couple of my friend talking about it's soundtrack and how beautiful it was. I wasn't expecting much aside from a killer soundtrack, but oh, was I ever wrong. I found myself bobbing back and forth to each and every tune as I worked my through all the various randomly-generated zones. This adds way more to the game then you may initially think. Since the songs act as a timer of sorts for each of the levels, you will find yourself scrambling to try and find each and every secret the Crypt of the NecroDancer holds before the final beat of the song forces you down the rabbit hole and into the next level. I really have nothing else to say aside from, if you are having doubt about whether or not you should pick this game up, I couldn't recommend it more. Try it, and you may be as surprised as I was.

Gameplay is simple yet extremely fun and addicting - move and kill monsters to the beat of the music as you explore dungeons collecting sweet sweet loot. The better in tune you are to the beat; the better the loot. It also helps that the soundtrack is incredibly catchy.

DO NOT BUY IT WITHOUT GETTING THE COLLECTORS EDITION. The music is too good.

Crypt of the NecroDancer is a game where you move to the changing beat of songs in the game while having to think fast and on your feet. It is very difficult and each zone takes a while to complete and longer to master. Plus it is very mod friendly and you can use your own music. It's a very fun roguelite game where you unlock more items and permenant upgrades as you go and definately pick it up during a steam sale if your wallet is a little tight.

Fresh and funky, Crypt of the Necrodancer will put a beat to your gameplay and have you bobbing your head while dodging and slashing your way through each level. Incredibly unique, wonderfully composed, this is a game you don't want to miss.

I give Crypt of the Necrodancer 9/10 pants

I absolutely love this game, and keep coming back to it. It takes some time getting used to, but I've played it 100 hours and I feel like I'm still learning new things about it. The game really opens up a bit once you get access to the different characters, and the very differing playstyles means there are many hours to enjoy. 10/10 would fully recommend.

A fantastic game where every single move must be calculated by the player. Do you use the whip to try and reach around corners or do you bring along the bow so that you can reach far off enemies, believe me, these are vital things to consider because the wrong decision can cost you the run. This game was definitely worth every single cent.

One of the best Soundtrack I've ever heard in a game,
Deserving a positive review only for this considering that the entire game and controls are based upon it.

Awesome game. An original take on classical dungeon-crawling games. Not particularly fun at two, but still a very enjoyable additional feature. If you read the description on the store page and is intrigued/interested, then go for it: you won't be disappointed. It's exactly what it looks like.
