“...this wonderful roguelike that I've been having a deeply romantic affair with for the past couple weeks.”

About This Game

Descending in the darkness of a long-abandoned facility, a lone ship searches for wealth, power and the scattered pieces of the past.

Monolith is a top down action shooter with procedurally generated elements. Explore a progression of floors as you make your way into the depths of the facility, encountering increasingly deadly enemies, fantastic weapons, upgrades, choices and revelations as you venture deeper towards a great and calamitous power.

  • Smooth, gracious, fast action gameplay, tailored to feel good to play.
  • 7 different types of weapons with over 40 unique modifiers and a ludicrous number of combinations.
  • A number of floors with their own layouts, traps and enemies.
  • Intricate and energetic chiptune soundtrack to complement the beat of the action.
