Passing the Turing Test is the ultimate goal of robot builders: that is, creating an AI so advanced that an actual human cannot tell the difference. But what if, as a consequence, you could be a robot and not realize it? That’s the question indie developers Metagalaxy Panda are dramatizing in their roguelike card battling game Anti-TuringTest (we’re not sure what the reason is for the lack of the space there).
Goblinz Studio’s reverse dungeon crawler Legend of Keepers was launched last spring for PC and consoles. Six months later, it’s about to receive its first DLC pack, Return of the Goddess.

Orc Chop Games has been working on their upcoming roguelite Goblin Stone for some time, and today is the first day you can experience it in playable form…a demo has been publlished on Steam, with the Early Access version of the game soon to follow.
In most roguelite games, you enter a dungeon, uncover treasure, get as far as you can and battle increasingly powerful monsters. But what’s it like from the other perspective? Legend of Keepers is that kind of rare game that examines a genre from the monsters’ POV.
Loop Hero, created by dev team Four Quarters, is Steam’s latest hit. It combines several genres we cover around here frequently…roguelites, deck-builders, RPGs, and let’s not forget things with retro graphics. All these elements are combined into an addictive pie that’s managed to sell half a million copies in one week.
It’s here, folks…Heroes of Hammerwatch, the roguelite action RPG from Crackshell and BlitWorks, is no longer a PC exclusive. Console gamers can now take part in the dungeon crawling too….well, two-thirds of them can (it’s not on PS4 yet).
Crackshell and BlitWorks have announced their roguelite action RPG Heroes of Hammerwatch is coming to consoles, after taking the PC by storm. Switch will get the game first, followed by XBox one day later.
It slew Steam…now Sin Slayers sets its sights on Switch! In this tactical action-RPG roguelite from developer Goonswarm, you play a team of heroes wandering through the afterlife, journeying through randomly generated worlds and defeating monsters in turn-based combat.
Survived By, a merciless roguelite from developer Human Head Studios and Canadian publisher Digital Extremes, has entered Steam Early Access and is playable today.
