Has some Roguelike'ish elements, an eccentric small team behind it, and only a few grand shy of their deadline a few days from now.  PC/Mac/Linux and probably in fine company with the likes of Grim Dawn and others tacking in a different direction entirely than the likes of Diablo III in terms of ARPG doings.

Funded and now has a few stretch goals with some days left.

Most interesting, they've a video up on their character basic attribute system----which uses jointly paired attributes in a bid to prevent jack-of-all-trades syndrome as well as all high level character being identical for the most part for any given class.
