Wait Are we going to do a what are we playing in April thread?
PC port released on Steam recently and considering it originally came out in 2009 it's a relatively old game but oh man. I'd heard it's good but nothing that really got my attention like, "Holy shit, get this game right now!" Well I'm here to tell you, Holy shit, get this game RIGHT NOW. I just finished my first play-through and aside from a few unclear QTE segments during boss fights this game is a blast. The default combat abilities are intrinsically fun on their own and there are a lot more to discover and unlock as the game goes on. It's fast, it's funny, it's only $20.
This game is probably the best Rougelike out there. It's not overwhelmingly difficult to figure out the mechanics but there is a ton of strategy involved in making a party with abilities that compliment each other and it is brutally unforgiving if you make mistakes. Protip, don't get too invested in your characters early on or at all. They are going to die (and stay dead) often when you least expect it. You will eventually get replacements and make them even stronger.
