Insurmountable comes out on Thursday. It's another loving procedurally generated roguelike.

Wait! Look here before you dip out.



Didn't expect that, right? Me neither. As one of the many goons who became fascinated with how hosed up mountain climbing is from the old Everest thread in GBS, a mountaineering roguelike both seems like something that should already exists and something that could actually be kind of cool.

The UI looks like a phone game though, which doesn't fill me with confidence.

Insurmountable was okay, but it lacks something to give the gameplay a little punch. You move around the terrain in a tile system, trying to preserve your body heat, oxygen, energy and health, etc by picking the better paths, and you stop by events that either help or sabotage your stat bars. It's like the non combat portion of something like FTL. Chill, but not exciting. I don't have the patience for it, and only recommend it if you have a particular interest for climbing.

Now to see if R-Type Final 2 holds up. It's been ages since last they made one of those. It's out tomorrow on more or less everything.

Legend of Keepers: Career of a Dungeon Manager came out of early access.

It plays like a reverse Darkest Dungeon with locational skills and everything. You're the boss encounter and also recruit, train and play as minions. The point is to whittle down the heroes enough to end their run before they kill you, and then you have to rotate out your minions so they can recover from having their asses handed to them.



I've been playing it since yesterday, and the title is the only bad thing about it. It's a really fun.

Also, there are plenty of new contents: more items, more skills, more spells, more tasks, quests and lot of resources to find.

Developed by Kenkou Land (Lemures Blue’s 2 A.M.), MAMIYA is a visual novel with a somber, melancholic ambiance. Covering hard subjects such as bullying, parental abuse, suicide, and rape, it portrays a bleak world that feels nauseating, cruel, and real.

The FallDown portion of Mamiya‘s story puts you in the shoes of four characters whose painful histories and secrets eventually overtake them, with their downward spirals driven largely by the intervention of a malevolent entity called Mamiya who appears and promises to help while instead leading them to suicide or murder. The first route I tried revolved around gender dysphoria and I couldn’t really relate to any of the character’s struggles. The second route I tried involved a character from the first story getting amnesia and being found by another character, with their relationship being kind of brother-brother but with a degree of closeness that made me wonder if the entire game was going to be a serious journey throughout LGBT trauma (which isn’t a negative by any means, but it’s definitely the type of thing I can’t relate to well enough to critique effectively).

I agree with this! It's pretty fun to experiment with different unit combinations on the field and getting a composition that can down champions before they leave the first monster room.

The first room can do decent damage to the heroes before going down, but you need a big enough roster that you can match elemental resistances to their damage, and a leveled up tank in the most attacked position.

I don't know, but frog traps do fixed damage as opposed to the %life damage from burn or frostbite, so it would be weird if they were better. I'm playing with all the difficulty sliders maxed because XCOM did funny things to my gaming habits though, so the stats might be different. The game holds up well on the hardest mind. I'm only past stage 1 on one master, but there's great variety in what sort of champions you have to beat and what kind of roster you can field. You also get the miniboss room halfway through the run, which I assume is a later stage thing.

If you get lucky with hero composition vs monster composition you can tank some of their hits pretty well. A lot of it boils down to matching resistances vs where the heroes are going to attack imo.

Poison & Wound are interesting in that the fixed damage they deal scale with how many stacks of poison/wound they have (5 damage for every stack they have, I believe). So if you have a lot of things that poison then the frog statue is great but otherwise you might be better off going with something different.

I love everything about this game's visual and musical style. I thought that the demo thing they were releasing in conjunction with their kickstarter was just going to be like one track but it's surprisingly robust, with a dozen tracks with all difficulty options... I guess because the project is going to end up much bigger? I'm worried about Kickstarter scope creep loving things up (especially with that online multiplayer stretch goal) but what's here is already a lot of fun
