The roguelite genre has seen an uprising in recent times, with even AAA studios turning to roguelite inspirations. With its growing popularity, new players are bound to be attracted to see what the deal is about. However, the genre is renowned for its steep level of challenge, which could be a drawback for beginners. Hades, Crypt of the Necrodancer, Nobody Saves The World, Streets of Rogue and Vampire Survivors are some of the most popular roguelite games to play this year. Developed and published by Brace Yourself Games, Crypt of the Necodancer is an innovative hybrid of the rhythm and roguelite genre. Players control Cadence, whose heart has been stolen by the nefarious necrodancer, as she braves his dungeons to retrieve it while unraveling the mystery behind the magical lute. Streets of Rogue is a hybrid between Nuclear Throne, Deus Ex, and GTA. With over 40 unique characters to choose from, this roguelite sandbox offers no shortage of freedom with gameplay. Vampire Survivors is a game released last year for consoles, PC, and smartphones, and has grown in popularity recently. Players can control a unique hero against endlessly spawning hordes, and collect EXP gems dropped by foes to level up.
