The story behind My Cousin the Rogue

My Cousin the Rogue is part of what has retroactively been termed a "molasses jam" run by the Bay Area Dev Collective. The theme of the jam was to make a violent genre non-violent. I love roguelikes and I thought it would be interesting to think about why these monsters are living in a dungeon. Perhaps they have more of a right to be there than the "hero".

The other molasses game jam games are also on steam:
