The roguelike dungeon crawler Tangledeep, previously described as a tribute to the golden age of RPGs, is finally being released on the Nintendo Switch eShop later this month on 31st January after missing its Q2 2018 window.
The developer Impact Gameworks first showed interest in bringing the game to the Switch in October 2017. The dungeon-crawling elements draw from classics such as Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger and the strategic turn-based gameplay has been inspired by roguelikes such as NetHack and Shiren the Wanderer.
Each playthrough promises a unique experience thanks to the ever-changing labyrinth, robust character job system and a large assortment of equipment. If that's not convincing enough, the game also has two soundtrack styles - one that channels the SNES era and the other is a modern composition with live-recorded instrumentals. Some of the talent involved is Andrew "zircon" Aversa - who is also the game's programmer and designer. Other contributions come from Hiroki Kikuta (Secret of Mana and Seiken Densetsu 3) and the legendary Grant Kirkhope (responsible for the music in GoldenEye 007, Yooka-Laylee and more recently Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle). Take a look at one of the existing trailers below:
