While most video game development studios design games because of their love for the video game industry, Cellar Door Games is different. They don’t care about the industry, or the awesome art of pixels and polygons. No,they have different priorities.
Cellar Door Games wants you to rage your freaking butt off, which is why they created the masterpiece that they so cleverly call Rogue Legacy.
You see, Rogue Legacy isn’t a video game; it’s a god damn evil piece of awesomeness wrapped up in a bag of randomized zombie parts. That is to say, Rogue Legacy is hard. But you know, in a good way.
On the surface, Rogue Legacy is just another 2D side scrolling rogue-lite game. You’ve got a randomized castle to explore, chests to loot, and dozens of enemies to kill. So, what exactly separates this game from every other rogue-lite game out there? Honestly, I don’t really know. I just know that this game is awesome, and that I can’t get enough of it. In total, I’ve played it for well over 40 hours, and have absolutely zero intentions on stopping any time soon. This game has become an addiction.
Honestly, just buy this game. If you already own it, buy it again. I already convinced two Twitch streamers to play it, including the awesomeness that is The Spartan Show.
Seriously, if I could set up a shrine to Cellar Door Games, I would. They deserve the love and praise for essentially creating the best game I have ever played. Rogue Legacy, you’re awesome.
