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.

This game has an amazing soundtrack. The gameplay is simple, but challenging as you get to the later levels! It's a great game to jump into if you just want to play for a few minutes (or a few hours straight).

I wish there was a way to get online co-op going but considering the many issues that might arise from that, its understandable that it's limited to local co-op. Local co-op is pretty fun and makes the game a little bit easier.

I've only played for a pretty short time yet. I was hesitating to buy this game, then finally decided not to, but later realizing the soundtrack was from Danny Baranowsky bought it on sale.
For the moment I'm having a great time, the music is awesome (even more when the shopkeeper kicks in) and once you get used to the beats and the gameplay concept it's really super fun.
I definitly recommand this to people who enjoy fun roguelikes, music and disco-opera singing sellers.

Great idea and awesome soundtrack! I love the singing shop keepers :D really funny!
Not so easy after only 2 hours played, a lot of fun.
(I would appreciate to get a few more diamonds though)
In case you are not sure whether you like it or not, watch some yotube videos before buying it.
(Got it from the summer sale, worth all the 374 cents.)
You only need one hand to play it, almost relaxing - if it wasn't that demanding :)

If you're even considering not buying this game- You can add in Darude Sandstorm and it's the most hilarious thing ever and was beyond worth the $3.74 (I got it on sale) Personally, I would buy this game just for the meme factor

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.

Played the game for 5 minutes, already in love with it. The music tracks are amazing, it is challenging it is fun, what more is there to say other than: There is no reason not to buy this game.

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.

Fun core loop and brilliant design. But level/monster design is way too difficult for my tastes. You will die over and over and the deaths are extremely frusrating. Not my kind of game.

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.

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.
