Critadel | Featured

Lately Nicalis has been announcing a lot of really exciting projects. A great example is Critadel. Developed by Pixelian Studio, it’s a futuristic rouge-like with lush pixel artwork. And best of all, now I can share that Critadel is coming this October 13th, 2021! So if you game on PC, Epic or Switch, you’ll want to check it out next month.

If you missed our earlier coverage of the game, here’s a quick recap for your convenience:

Critadel is a futuristic platformer/shooter/roguelike in which players run, jump and blast through the convoluted pathways and secret chambers of a giant mechanical tower. A 360° aiming cursor allows ranged attacks in any direction. Enemies include deadly bosses and minions of the “Order of Noah,” an evil faction that has seized control of the tower and seeks to recover ancient knowledge that can grant eternal life.

For those that closely scrutinize the price of games before buying, you’re also in luck. Critadel is only going to cost $19.99, so it should be an easy decision whether or not to bite the bullet. Then you can explore the dangerous tower of Babel and fight your way to victory.
