Play Descent from Arkov's tower Prologue

Free To Play

Full release June 2024

This game is the prologue wishlist the full game here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/2876720/Descent_from_Arkovs_Tower/?beta=0

Aside from 9 areas and 30 Levels the full release will also support lua scripts in mods. This means you have even more possibilities to create your story in this roguelike.

It is also planned (even if not finally confirmed) that I will add Steam workshop support with the full release of the game.

About This Game

Warning contains 8-bit-ish Retro!

Caution! This is a retro pixel art roguelike which might bring back memories you didn't even know you had. A flickering, humming CRT screen in your living room or bedroom back in the '90s after a day at school. What do you mean you weren't even born back then?


This roguelike puts you in the shoes of an unnamed adventurer who just woke up on the top level of Arkov's Tower. Try to fight your way down and escape it - or die trying.

Move your player trough numerous procedural generated levels. Fight numerous enemies including some unique bosses. The turn based combat system allows you to take your time and plan every move carefully. Upgrade your character with all sorts of items found in chests or dropped by enemies. In rare occasions you might find a wishing well, which allows you to upgrade your base stats. Can you make it to the bottom of the mysterious Tower?

Please be aware that this is a prologue, so more levels and bosses will be added in planned content Upgrades.


This game is highly customizable for people with pixel art and/or programming experience. Just have a look at the included manual and the Mod Manager in the main menu. Maybe you want to create your own story? Use this game as a roguelike engine and make it happen!
