Crypt of the NecroDancer Brings Dancing and Roguelikes Together on Steam

Roguelikes, roguelike-likes, and their ilk are incredibly common as of late. How can you stand out from the pack anymore? Well, no one seemed to focus on the rhythm/music genre until Crypt of the NecroDancer arrived on the scene.

Crypt of the NecroDancer is a top-down pixelated dungeon crawler with all the hardcore difficulty you expect from roguelikes. However, it challenges players to move to the beat of background music to be most effective. You can either listen to the official soundtrack by Danny Baranowsky or input tracks from your own MP3 files.

Funnily enough, alongside keyboard and gamepad controls there’s even an option to use a USB dance mat! Crypt of the NecroDancer is currently in Early Access and is available for $14.99.
