You know a game is good when it lets you break lots of pots/jars and it feels really good. Rogues Like Us is a top-down isometric hack n’ slash rogue-like game that’s inspired by the gameplay of The Binding of Isaac and the combat from Bastion, all combined with a progression system based around the weapons you find and inevitably use.
Compared to other games in the genre where the main focus is the character, in this game the weapons are the focus where each enemy death feeds the weapons and becomes stronger, providing more power to the user that wields it. Venture in procedurally generated dungeons as you kill many enemies and feed your weapons, finding new blueprints and increasing your arsenal, and inevitably dying for your clan and protecting the people that you love.
