Necken is a tilebased roguelike set in the Swedish forest. It focuses on resource management and tactical decisions, rather than deep complex game mechanics. Movement is not turn based - everything moves freely, but the modular combat is. Necken is a small, simplistic roguelike hybrid.

“It's an interesting game in that regard where very very few games manages to get simplicity but also a level of interesting complication on top of that simplicity.”

About This Game

Necken is a simplistic roguelike that let's you explore the deepest parts of the Swedish forest.

Take control of the people lost in the magical forest, gather resources, craft your equipment and fight your way through the randomly generated adventure.
The forest is full of animals, soldiers and mystical creatures, and neither of them wants you around.
