Just stumbled on this:

Darkest Dungeons
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1460250988/darkest-dungeon-by-red-hook-studios

Looks really slick and procedurally generated dungeons and permadeath. Doesn't look tactical based though. Party based combat and a town area like angband kinda. Either way, seems relevant and looks pretty damn badass.

Blast your way through an ancient spaceship, lost millennia ago and overrun by parasitic aliens in this thrilling Twin-Stick Shooter.

Control Charlotte Seeker as she plunders the ship’s long lost technology, outwits its nearly impenetrable cybernetic defenses, and discovers its secrets. Featuring beautiful 16 bit-inspired lo-fi graphics, an action-packed original score, and gameplay influenced by The Binding of Isaac, A Link to the Past, and Resogun, Charlotte Seeker will test your skill, your reflexes, and your tenacity.

Unsuccessful.

Charolette Seeker looks neat, a twin stick shooter. Thinking Realm of the Mad God. Those games are just to much for me but  know people really like them.

kickstarter for a mobile roguelike game where the player controls a team of three radically different creatures every time you play.

Let me expand on this a little.  Heres the pitch

"Can you imagine leading an acid blob, an elf and a minotaur into combat? Or perhaps a pit-viper, a zombie and a slime demon?

Dungeon Bash puts the player in control of a team of three adventurers, randomly selected from a list of over thirty radically different creatures, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.
"

So its more of a tactical game where you cater to your party's strengths and try to cover their weaknesses as you meet tons of different opponents alone, in groups or in swarms as you progress.

Its got a neat interface that is all gesture based, so you can just concentrate on the strategy - good for public transport or waiting rooms.

Any questions welcome.

This game failed its Kickstarter to pay for the fully animated graphics, but Ive been working away anyway with borrowed graphics for a private alpha-test release (scribblenauts).

Its ready for alpha-test to download for IOS or Android devices!

Go to www.dungeonbash.com  to  get the game.

Children of Morta

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/deadmage/children-of-morta

Quote
Children of Morta is a story-driven hack ‘n slash roguelike game which will involve you in the adventures of the Bergson family.

Big on style with a team that has managed to complete projects in the past---poor idea to have a character class determined at a backer level exclusively though unless they just poorly communicated.   Seeking $65K

Monsters' Den: Godfall

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/garin/monsters-den-godfall-a-turn-based-dungeon-crawling/description
http://www.monstrumgames.com/

Quote
The popular turn-based dungeon-crawling RPG goes downloadable! Explore, battle, loot and grow powerful. Lead your Company to glory!

Monsters' Den started in 2007 as a free web game. It's since been followed by Monsters' Den: The Book of Dread and Monsters' Den Chronicles. Together, these games have been played more than 30 million times.

Monsters' Den: Godfall is a new downloadable game for PC and Mac, larger in scope and richer in content than ever before. The game has been in development for some time, but now I need your help to finish it.

    A turn-based role playing game focused on dungeon crawling and advancement.
    Found and manage a Mercenary Company. Maintain a roster of heroes, upgrade your keep and adopt doctrines for universal bonuses.
    Take direct control of a party of up to four adventurers to lead on missions.
    Battle groups of enemies in turn-based tactical combat.
    Procedurally generated dungeons, loot and missions.
    Overland travel- visit new cities and dungeons, search ruins and find hidden places of interest.
    Improved character advancement means increased freedom to personalize your team of heroes.
    Hundreds of unique items that can be customized with enchantments.
    More than 100 enemy types, each with unique skills requiring different tactical approaches.
    Random dungeon modifiers add new wrinkles to each mission.
    Story missions uncover the mysteries of the Godfall.

Seeking the unusual $23,466 and 28 days to go---definitely looks much improved and deeper on the ambitions than the previous older browser titles.   8)
