    I had plans to pre-order this game on physical format as the price seems fairly good (cheaper than the rest) but when I watched the gameplay, good god, I'm glad I didn't! Watch the gameplay below.

    I saw it at the treehouse presentation. Did not understand the excitement.

    That...doesn't look that bad. Certainly not a 60$ AAA game, but something i'd play for a few minutes at a time on a bus.

    This is more appealing to me than Binding of Isaac, I really don't understand what people see in that random generator game. This looks like a decent indie rpg scroller. And it's half the price of Isaac.

    EDIT: Oh crap this one is rogue too. Not interested. I'll wait for Dragon Quest while playing Disgaea.

    Yeah, I'm not really interested in those randomized rogue-likes.

    this game is like minecraft for me. Never played it, watched others play it, confirmed that I would never ever want to play it. I simply don't get it. What's wrong with real legos?

    The title of this game is misleading. I initially thought it was meant to be the 3rd game in the No More Heroes series.

    Oh wow, that looks really basic. Indeed looks like a phone game. In fact I've seen phone games that are almost identical to this. Much like those games, it's like a RPG without any of the fun parts.

    Why not? Just asking, randomized games are literally endless content. Insta-sell for me.

    it reminds me of the flash games i played at juegos.com

    Particularly it reminds me of Drago Adventure. The game was rather slow but still enjoyable. This game seems too fast.

    >you know a game is bad if a fucking flash game about a dragon kid plays better than it.

    This game seems like it was a waste of material to have made physical copies of.

    Its upsetting to see physical copies get made for this when other more deserving games like Fast Racing RMX and Snipperclips are left digital only.

    What's the issue? The person playing doesn't get to the actual game portion of it (when you have three heroes) quick enough, but otherwise it looks like all the other footage of it I've seen. Doesn't seem to be getting the greatest reviews, but the biggest complaint is consistently, "it's too hard." That's not a turn-off for me in a roguelike, sorry. I bought FTL back in 2012, been playing it on and off since then, and still have yet to beat it.

    Not gonna cancel my pre-order, in any case. It was $20 off a gift card. Still have $25 on my eShop balance for Snake Pass, too.

    These games aren't Roguelikes, though.

    Not if you're being super picky about the label, but that's somewhat pointless because then you just end up breaking it down into more categories that all still have the world 'rogue' in them. AKA 'roguelite.'

    Nah, I think these titles would only be called "Roguelites" at their best. Honestly, if you took the what made Rogue, well, Rogue, and compared it to the concept of something that prides itself on being a Roguelike such as Rogue Legacy...well, let's just say fans of Rogue would be scratching their heads wondering how it even came close to the fundamentals.

    Not that I'm saying these titles are better or worse for the being Roguelike or otherwise, but to stay on topic, I don't think this title could be considered anything close to Rogue-like/lite/whathaveyou. It just seems procedurally generated, and a lot closer to a mobile game's repetitive style than a Rogue title's.

    And if that's all it takes for people to call a game Rogue anything...oh boy.

    It also has permadeath and an unforgiving difficulty curve. Those plus procedural generation are pretty much all that's needed to claim roguelike status these days. See: Nuclear Throne, Galak-Z, Ziggurat, 20XX, etc.
