Streets of Rogue, developed by Matt Dabrowski, came to my attention when I watched one of Super Bunnyhop’s latest videos. Before you go on, check that video out. It’s pretty spot-on in most places, but it doesn’t quite give the game the in-depth look that it deserves.
Now, given that roguelikes are not only my jam but also quite possibly my peanut butter and bread, I had to give the game a shot. What I expected was a top-down dungeon crawler themed around exploring the slums and shooting guns.
What I got was closer to Deus Ex, if it was made by lunatics.
