SRPG Roguelike Rogue Wizards Heading to Steam

Exploration, combat, simulation, and more await you in this magic-infused upcoming roguelike

Developer Spellbind Studious has announced that their upcoming game Rogue Wizards will be appearing on Steam early next week.

Rogue Wizards follows the adventure of a hapless hero as they venture through dangerous dungeons filled with monsters, traps, and, of course, plenty of loot. Although indeed a procedurally-generated roguelike, Rogue Wizards features tactical turn-based combat similar to that found within SRPGs, as opposed to real-time combat normally found within games of the same genre.

Combat and exploration aside, Rogue Wizards also adds into the mix an element of simulation. During exploration within the games dungeons, players will come across merchants in need of rescuing. Once rescued, merchants will set up shop in town, allowing the town to not only grow but offer better items within shops as well; the more merchants rescued, the bigger the town and the better the shops. Selling items at shops will also do more than just earn players money. By selling excess loot shops will be able to expand and upgrade, allowing the shopkeepers to offer a larger selection (some of which you might even get for free)!

Rogue Wizards will be blasting its way onto Steam on September 27th. Will you have what it takes to survive?

Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
