Independent game developer Impact Gameworks announced that the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for their roguelike dungeon crawler Tangledeep has successfully passed its funding goal within the first week.
Tangledeep is a dungeon-crawling tribute to the golden age of RPGs, inspired by the lush visuals and music of such classic games as Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger. Its strategic, turn-based gameplay combines the accessibility and polish of these games, and draws from a rich history of roguelikes from NetHack to Shiren the Wanderer and even modern dungeon crawlers like Diablo. Players can approach the titular, ever-changing labyrinth in a myriad of ways, using the game's character job system and huge assortment of equipment to create a unique experience each playthrough. The Tangledeep soundtrack is also highly notable, featuring two styles: an authentic, retro SNES version, and a modern version with beautiful orchestration and live-recorded instrumentalists
Tangledeep is slated for a late Q4 2017 release on PC, Mac, and Linux, with the possibility of additional platforms to be announced at a later date.
