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.

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.

I want to like this game, but it's extremely difficult and getting past the third dungeon seems impossible. It's telling that only 40% of players have even the first acheivement. Make a baby mode or something.

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.

This game is absolutely addictive. The basic theme of playing a dungeon crawler set to music is just a lot of fun. The multiple soundtracks are really good. The randomness of the levels spawned make this have a ton of replay value, and the ability to sync it to your own songs makes that doubly true. Pick up this game now!

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.

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.

You're into rhytm games? Get this game - You're into rogue-like or rogue-lite games a la The Binding of Isaac? Get thi game - You are into heavy addciting drugged experience? Get this game.
No, really. It's almost dangerous as it's addictive: just one more run.

Rhythm-based roguelike that has you move to the beat to kill and avoid monsters. Deceptively hard and good music. I was going to beat it to completion, but then Overwatch and The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine expansion came out. So take this recommendation for what it's worth: deserving of your time if you don't have the money or a good enough computer for other, better games. That's a back-handed compliment, but I'm not really a huge roguelike fan. That I played this long enough that I could no longer refund it is compliment enough.

Not the hardest Rogue-like out there, but the ability to play community-made levels and add custom music (with fully-functioning beat system) will keep you coming back to boogie with the bones for a long, long time.

Comical, endearing, and combines raves and randomized dungeon crawls. A good buy for any Rogue-like fan. (Also has very interesting multiplayer)
