In celebration of the release of Crypt of the Necrodancer, maybe, Valve has collected some of Steam's best roguelikes and lopped off much of the cost. The Steam Roguelike Sale runs over the weekend, and discounts roguelikelike heavy hitters like FTL, Rogue Legacy, Risk of Rain and Spelunky, and even a couple of fits-the-rigid-definition-of-a-roguelike, also known as 'proper' roguelikes, too.

My picks of the bunch would be Delver for 50% off, a first-person dungeon crawl with great music; the maybe-too-grindy-but-still-good Rogue Legacy for 75% off; the deeper-than-Moria NEO Scavenger for 33% less; Spelunky for chump change; and the fab One Way Heroics for a ridiculous 77p. You can also grab Binding of Isaac: Rebirth for 33% off, FTL for just under 2, and, well, browse the list yourself, there's a load of great stuff here.

The Steam Roguelike Sale ends Monday 27th April at 10am PST, which my brain always tells me stands for 'PlaneScape Torment'.

The indie game Rogue Legacy is coming to PlayStation platforms on July 29, developer Cellar Door Games announced today. It will hit PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Vita simultaneously, and features cross-buy and cross-save through all three platforms.

The announcement promises all of the features and content patches from the PC version and support for multiple languages: English, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Polish, Russian, and Spanish. The studio also states that it designed Rogue Legacy with Vita buttons in mind, to make sure any eventual port would be optimized. That's some serious foresight.

Rogue Legacy is a platforming action-adventure with roguelike elements, meaning randomized dungeons and constant death. But the story centers on a lineage of heroes taking up the task from their fallen parents, so each new life is a new family member with unique strengths and weaknesses. It received positive reviews on PC when it released last year.

Save 66% on Rogue Legacy during this week's Midweek Madness*!

Rogue Legacy is a genealogical rogue-"LITE" where anyone can be a hero.

Each time you die, your child will succeed you. Every child is unique. One child might be colorblind, another might have vertigo-- they could even be a dwarf.

That's OK, because no one is perfect, and you don't have to be perfect to win this game. But you do have to be pretty darn good because this game is HARD. Fortunately, every time you die all the gold you've collected can be used to upgrade you manor, giving your next child a step up in life and another chance at vanquishing evil.

"...a hugely compelling mix of 2D action-platforming and Roguelike game design." 9/10
--IGN

"Rogue Legacy is a must-play, and a steal at its $15 price tag." 90/100
--GameFront
