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 is the type of game that whenever you lose you throw your pc in the garbage and then a day later you go get it back from the garbage and play it again.

I picked up this game during the summer sale and decided to play it for the first time on stream. This game is....FREAKING AMAZING! I wish I got this game sooner; it is so good. The soundtrack is amazing and find myself bobbing my head to the beat and it provides quite the challenge too. I love rogue-likes and the addition of the beat and music is GREAT! GET THIS GAME!

The concept alone deserves a high rating.
It's challenging, fun, and I like the option to play as the bard and disable the gimmick, although the 'gimmick' is great and doesn't feel forced. I tend to find that I don't play it for too long at a time because it gets frustrating (mostly due to me being too hasty), but it doesn't feel like it's the game's fault and I will come back to it frequently. The more you improve, the more fun it gets. Good for the money, a solid purchase.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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)
