Infinite Space 3: Sea of Stars

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/digital-eel/infinite-space-3-sea-of-stars

Quote
A three-dimensional follow-up to our classic indie space-roguelikes, Strange Adventures and Weird Worlds.

Funded, but not quite stretched.


Chasm

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/discordgames/chasm

Quote
Chasm is a 2D Fantasy ARPG Platformer featuring procedurally generated Metroid-like dungeons and authentic pixel art.

Updated Demo available!

Funded and stretched a bit, but the unreached goals are general targets for the future with sales and whatnot to come---so hope remains!

Amusing stretch goals include a more overt Roguelike Mode

Quote
What happens when Cyberpunk apocalypse roguelike meets RTS in pixel art? C-Wars!

Darkwood

http://www.darkwoodgame.com/

Quote
Darkwood is a top-down, old school survival horror set in a procedurally generated, open world. It features RPG and roguelike elements, with intense combat and a eerie atmosphere. It's developed by 3 people, who like to call themselves Acid Wizard, and is currently in pre-alpha stage.

This one looks fairly interesting guys. A very different looking horror roguelike-like with permadeath and a random world. They're currently about 10% of the way funded, check it out!

FUNDED, with the first big stretch goal achieved!

While not really marketed as a roguelike, it seems kinda relevant.
