Excerpt: 496 legacies, five intense boss battles, and a woman scorned, determined, and finally satisfied. Cellar Door Games' roguelike Rogue Legacy is a game that will make you angry. It will frustrate the hell out of you, but it's a game that makes you keep coming back for more.

Excerpt: Rogue Legacy is a game about obsession. It's about one man's obsession to overcome the dangers of an evil castle for his family's sake. It's about a family's multi-generational obsession to conquer that same citadel. Most importantly, it fosters this same obsession in its players.
Pros: Finally beating Herodotus after dodging the slimes for what felt like hours.
Cons: Setting up a perfect set of runes and equipment and then forgetting to talk to the architect before entering the castle.
