Developer Impact Gameworks have announced that their “roguelike dungeon crawler” game Tangledeep will be released on the Nintendo Switch sometime next year. Although we’re not aware of a solid release date yet, the title sounds promising and may well be worth keeping tabs on. Players will get to enjoy ‘rich, tactical turn-based’ gameplay within an ever-changing labyrinth all in gorgeous 16-bit graphics.
Grant Kirkhope is one of the composers behind the music for the title and is best known for his contributions towards Goldeneye, Banjo-Kazooie and the recently released, well-received Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle for Switch. Players have the choice of listening to the games’ music between two forms; Instrumental or in a SNES-style for that extra retro feel.
It’s already available on Steam via Early Access and the description certainly paints a very good picture of Tangledeep.
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 customizable job system and hundreds of collectable items that allow you to approach each playthrough in a totally new way!
