The 16-bit dungeon crawler from Impact Gameworks’ Tangledeep will be making its way onto Steam’s early access program next week, offering players a glimpse into the game’s development so far.
For those who don’t know what Tangledeep is, here’s what the Steam page has to say:
‘Tangledeep combines the 16-bit graphics and polish of classic SNES-era RPGs with elements from roguelikes and dungeon crawlers to create a magical experience for players of all skill levels. Trapped in underground villages with no memory of the world at the surface, you must survive an ever-changing labyrinth to discover what lies above. Experience rich, tactical, turn-based gameplay as you explore a sprawling dungeon that’s different each time you play. Tangledeep features a customisable job system and hundreds of collectible items that allow you to approach each playthrough in a totally new way.’
The title has been in development since early last year and is intended to launch during the fourth quarter this year. Developers say that early access is a chance to give them valuable feedback from the community regarding what is working and what isn’t. Don’t expect the early access version of the title to be a glitchy dumbed down experience of the full game, the developers have noted that it’s closer to completion than one would think.
‘Tangledeep is already a beautiful, polished game with dozens of hours of gameplay. Its procedurally-generated maps, hundreds of items, 9 jobs, and diverse monsters give it high replayability even though the game isn’t 100% done yet. ‘
If you are interested in this retro-inspired RPG title, make sure you support the developers by making a purchase when it launches here.
Tangledeep will launch later this year on PC.
