Starting July 23, Cellar Door Games’ original “genealogical rogue-lite” is back with Rogue Legacy 2 in Early Access.
Much like the original, this title has the underpinnings of a typical roguelike (changing characters, randomized runs, etc.), but mixes things up with persistent upgrades and dead heirs. Your legacy defines you, and players will be able to grow the family manor to provide your children a better fighting chance.
Playstyles are varied as well. One can go in hard and fast as they dive deeper into the depths of each randomly-generated world. Alternatively, a slow and steady approach is also viable, helping you to build up your character until they are ready for greater challenges. New abilities like flight, dash, and air jumping can also be learned along the way.
New to Rogue Legacy 2 is a brand new style that features 2.5D stylings with 3D characters against hand-drawn backdrops. In addition, classes now feature weapons that completely alter how they play. Revamped biome generation has also been done, along with improved accessibility and more of everything (including clowns).
