About Rogue Heroes:

Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos is a rogue-lite, a genre of game that entails battling your way through procedurally generated dungeons or worlds to make it to the end. The evil you must battle your way through in this game originates from the four Great Dungeons, which house Titans sealed by goddesses. With the seal broken and the land of Tasos in peril, the goddesses are left to rely on the heroes of man to vanquish this evil.

Rogue Heroes allows you to attempt to save Tasos either by yourself or with up to three other players in co-op mode similarly to The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures. The challenge gets harder with more players, so cooperation is vital. The game features a variety of upgradeable weapons and spells, as well as randomised puzzles, traps, and enemies. You can use the loot acquired from every run to upgrade your village of Intori, which will in turn give you upgrades and a palpable sense of progression. This is all rendered in colourful pixel art that harkens back to the classic topdown video games of yore. You can choose from multiple classes to play as, who all come equipped with their own stats and abilities, which combined with the ever-changing nature of the dungeons, makes for a unique experience every run.

Incidentally, this also happens to be the 69th Super Rare Game. Nice.
