Fight, sneak, and hack your way through randomly generated cities. It's like Nuclear Throne meets Deus Ex, mixed with the anarchy of GTA. Rogue-lite meets immersive sim, and goes completely insane.

Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access allows players to help shape the game in a way that’s never been possible before -- and Streets of Rogue is EXACTLY the sort of game that can greatly benefit in this regard. The game's world is super goofy and chaotic, and lends itself to having a wide variety of weird and wacky content. This, combined with the open-ended nature of the gameplay, means that if anyone has a suggestion for something cool they want to see in the game (items, character types, playfield objects, etc.), there's a very good chance I'll be able to add it!

Streets of Rogue is already a living example of how games can benefit from early releases. The game was in free open alpha for almost a year and a half prior to its Steam release, and it really couldn’t have gone much better. Player response was fantastic, and very useful to me throughout the course of development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“No solid release date has been set at the moment. Hopefully, the game will graduate from Early Access in mid-Late 2017, but it’s impossible to say for certain. And remember that Streets of Rogue is the sort of game that can continue to grow even after an Early Access period!”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will contain a lot more content than the Early Access version: Levels, characters, items, objects, music, etc. While the Early Access version has enough content to keep you busy for a long time (some players of the open alpha have reported 100+ hours), I have PLENTY more planned for the full version. I will also be putting a significant amount of effort into improving game balance.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core game is extremely playable and polished. Though it may contain a few more bugs than I’d like, most of these aren’t the sort of bugs that will break your game. It’s more the “banana transforms into a stove for no reason” variety. Most of the major planned features are implemented and working, such as local and online coop, unlockables, and game mutators. Online coop will likely have more bugs than other game modes.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will likely retain the same price point when it leaves Early Access, though this is potentially subject to change.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Anyone can submit feedback through the forums, on our Discord channel, or through an in-game feedback form that ties directly to my email account. Community bug reports have proven to be invaluable during the game’s open alpha, and I am constantly jotting down players’ suggestions for game content.”

You can play through 4-1 right now to get a little taste of what’s in store. Expect it to become more fleshed out and varied from the other levels in the weeks to come. Let me know what you think of the new stuff in this thread.

About This Game

Streets of Rogue is a rogue-lite about player choice, freedom, and anarchic fun. The game takes inspiration from fast-paced top-down rogue-lites like Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne, and adds free-form, experimentation-driven, emergent gameplay elements of RPGs like Deus Ex.

Rather than taking place in a dungeon, the game is set in a functioning, procedurally generated city, where complex AI informs denizens from all walks of life, who are just trying to get by in their daily activities.

In order to progress, the player will need to accomplish specific mission goals in any way they see fit through use of their special character traits, items, and the environment.



  • Will you play as a soldier who shoots first and asks questions later?
  • A stealthy scientist who uses chloroform and tranquilizer darts to silently take down the opposition?
  • A genial bartender who can talk his way past the most intimidating of guards?
  • Or how about a hyper-intelligent gorilla, rescuing other caged gorillas to form a small mobilized gorilla army?

The Mighty Feature-List


  • Play the game YOUR way! Don’t want to kill anybody? That’s cool! Want to hack computers? Got ya covered!
  • Random world generation and TOTALLY EXTREME gameplay variety means you can play for 600 hours and not get bored! Seriously though, go outside!!!
  • Super-advanced artificial intelligence that won’t put up with your crap! Outsmart these virtual humans and feel superior to your computer!
  • Play as over 20 (and growing!) wildly different types of characters! Bartender, scientist, hacker, gorilla — hey, your job is probably in there too!
  • Stupidly huge variety of items! Shrink rays, hypnotizing devices, boomboxes, bear traps, food processors.. Oh, and guns too.
  • 4-Player online and local cooperative modes lets you brutalize goons AND loneliness!
  • Lead a gang, free slaves, drink beer, gib ghosts, become a vampire, shrink people and stomp on them. The most insanely varied game ever made.
