Daily Challenge + "Looping Level 1" Fix

"from here on I think we'll refrain from uploading more patches unless there's some necessary bugfixing to do"... obviously when we say something like that, we're just jinxing ourselves ;)

Steam connectivity was mistakenly deactivated in the last build, Daily Challenges included, but should be restored in the current build.

We also got a couple reports from people whose new games would always start in the same place. We're not 1000% sure because we couldn't reproduce the problem, but the issue seemed to be because your computers wouldn't give the game access to delete quicksave files. We've added some new functionality to get around this. If you had this issue in the last build, then you will have to load a broken start of the game one more time after this update--after that, the game will be able to discard of your quicksave data properly and your future runs should all be normal again. We'll be keeping an eye for posts if this is not the case.

Big Stability Fix

We've uploaded a big stability fix, to augment our last one from a couple days ago. We tested the game pretty thoroughly this time, so there should hopefully be no errors, but we'll be keeping an eye to see if any more crop up.

It's been fun blasting out updates like when we were in our Early Access days, but from here on I think we'll refrain from uploading more patches unless there's some necessary bugfixing to do.

We've been working on some new stuff too. We're going to keep working on that stuff, and pretty soon we'll start talking about what that stuff is... but until it's all ready, I don't think we'll be putting it in players' hands. ;)

Coin Crypt is a procedurally-generated roguelike adventure game. What makes this game unique is its deckbuilding mechanics and deep, strategic gameplay. You play as a lootmancer, one of 20 characters who hunt for treasure in the mysterious "Coin Crypts". The coins found within treasure chests are used for both battling and bartering, but once they're used they're gone forever. With 201 different coins to find and use, the game offers a rich variety of play.

Coin Crypt separates itself from other games in its genre through a combination of strategy and pressure. The combat system runs on an active time battle format rather than a strict turn-based system. Each coin has its own cast time, and if you take too long to decide your play, your opponent will get the better of you. There's always the looming danger of running out of coins, which immediately ends your run. Because of this, you must keep your deck lean and efficient, but also mindful of the coins you spend as they'll disappear once used. To balance this, you can donate unneeded coins to Deities, the Loot Gods, who offer specific coins that suit different styles of play such as stalling, pure offense, defensive, and more.

Other than the wide variety of coins, there's also a good amount of different enemies who challenge you with specific playstyles. Some will steal your coins, poison you, force you to drop your coins, and more. Each floor has an optional miniboss that award you with items that give positive modifiers to your character. Once you've beaten 9 levels, you'll have to fight a random boss to win your run. As with most roguelikes, Coin Crypt has permadeath. Upon ending a run, you can use the money you accumulated to unlock different character classes with different modifiers that can change the way you play. Every class has to be played in their own unique way, and there’s no one method that will work for any class.

This game offers great replayability, a surprising amount of depth, and good fun if you're looking for a more strategic roguelike/RPG. Be warned; it is a difficult game with a moderate learning curve. Some players may get turned off by the game's almost childish art. Personally, I feel like it suits the game, giving it an almost boardgame-like aesthetic, which suits its gameplay. Some aspects may feel unbalanced, such as quick enemies or unfair coins, and there are still some bugs that have ruined some user's savefiles. Playing the game with a gamepad may feel awkward, but it plays smoothly with keyboard and mouse. Some classes are more difficult to play than others, although that's typical for most roguelikes. However, the developer is still in touch with the community and has steadily been working out the game's kinks. All in all, Coin Crypt is definitely worth the $10.00 purchase.

TL; DR: One of the most underrated roguelikes on Steam. Must-get if you're a fan of collectible card games and roguelikes/RPGs.

Coin Crypt is a great, highly polished, and addictive roguelike with the unusual addition of deckbuilding elements that work very well. It's hard to believe that this title was made in Game Maker with it's polished pseudo-3D graphics that are somewhat reminiscent of Paper Mario. Most importantly, the gameplay is very fun with reasonable depth. Runs can be a little too same-y, working in more randomized elements would definitely work to the games benefit, but it offers fun gameplay and a large cast of playable characters, each of whom adds their own spin to the game's formula. It could use a bit more variety and I'd love to see the developer keep patching in new content, or even releasing DLC, but overall the content that Coin Crypt offers is just so fun and engaging that it remains an easy recommendation.

The idea is pretty unique, but the gameplay lacks of depth and content.

Pros:

+ very unique gameplay, havent seen this before (slight comparison to Final Fantasy mechanics maybe)
+ simplistic in visuals, yet appealing
+ good controller layout and support

Cons:

- the game feels great at beginning, while exploring the coin effects and outcomes, but it lacks even more when you have seen them all
- variety of coins is pretty lackluster, they just vary in the slightest like: Hit for 2 - Hit for 4
There could have been way more clever ones
- the randomness is barely noticeable......everything feels the same
- I didnt like the shop mechanics, purchasing something almost always meant death later on, as you chip in your coins, that you need to battle
- power ups didnt feel like they help alot.....
- fighting felt way too random, as I often ran out of damage coins and was left for dead, by the games randomness - which was no fun at all, I cant play a strategy here
- I couldnt get a feel of progression even though I go far into the levels, there was no real reward.
- some characters are bound to be never played, as they suck so hard

Overall it was neat for a couple of minutes, but there are way too many great rogue-likes, to waist your time on an overpriced game with lack of content and depth.

This is absolutely excellent. Addictive, replayable, with a continuous unlocking of characters and discovery of new, unique coins. The combinations of the two create for some massively interesting play mechanics. I get a lot of fun out of trying out different characters and finding how best to utilise their abilities - I'm really into playing as the devil currently. Fantastic stuff, and well worth your £7.
