Sorry for the "Necro" bump, lol, but this just came out on  Steam yesterday for $15. Worth every penny, too! It's technically an "Early Access" title, but it is already a quite complete game, just missing the fourth and last area and some unlockable characters, I think.

But fans of rhythm games and roguelikes will find this is a great mix of the two genres. And if you are into BOTH types of games, like I am, this is your dream game!

One of my favorite games of the year. Seriously, if you haven't played it you are missing out. So brilliant.
Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day.
Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

Very brief threadomancy here to emphasize what's already been said. I avoided this game because rhythm games are generally not my cup of tea. Necrodancer is incredibly fun.

Update #10

Previously, some items like the Miner's Cap and Ring of Luck felt underpowered, so we beefed them up! Here are the changes:

- Fixed bug where the game was crashing for some people when submitting a mod

- Made the Ring of Gold automatically pick up dropped gold when the player moves
- Made blunderbuss do phasing damage (pierces shields, armadillo armor, etc) and added ‘not loaded’ image
- Made karate gi do double damage instead of +1 damage
- Made scrolls have more powerful effects than their spell counterparts. Example: Fireball scroll now does 8 damage. Fireball spell does 3.
- Fixed bug where confused conga line zombies would behave erratically
- Added ability to place locked miniboss stairs in level editor
- Made beat missing death for Aria happen in level editor levels also
- Fixed bug where enemies could move on the first beat while in the level editor when using bard
- Fixed bug where quick restart wasn't restarting from level 1 when choosing 'Play Dungeon' in level editor
- Made scrolls tell you their name when you pick them up, not just their color

- Added a bit more variability to the initial setups of all of the boss battles
- Added an option to allow the display of ‘hints’ when standing next to items

- Fixed issue where player could drop a monkey down a trapdoor and avoid it
- Fixed issue where Bard could move quickly onto and off a trap without triggering it
- Made barrels and chests have something inside them slightly more often
- Made it so Teh Urn can be opened by hitting it with a weapon and dealing 5 or more damage, instead of 9
- Made crates/barrels say “EMPTY CRATE” or “EMPTY BARREL” when opened and empty
- Made Blood Shops have slightly better items
- Made transmogrifier NPC cost 1/2 as much

We hope you enjoy the update!

Update 14

Hi folks! Lots of fun stuff in today's update for you! But first I wanted to explain something.

We were previously saying that the game was still in "alpha" which seemed to confuse quite a few people. We were using the strict definition of "alpha" which means "feature complete but not content complete". The problem with this is that a lot of people hear the term "alpha" and think that the game is FAR from completion, which is not true! We only have a few months of dev left, at most. So, despite it not being a 100% accurate term in our opinions, we've decided to switch to calling the game "beta". Hopefully this all makes sense! We do still have some core chunks of content to add, but the gameplay that is there is certainly close enough to finished to call it "beta".

Anyway, without further ado, here are the new features in this build!:
- Added a new character!: Eli. Unlock him by completing zone 3, regular or hardcore.
- Added a new weapon: The Rifle
- Daggers and spears can now be thrown!
- Added monstrous shopkeepers who show up VERY rarely
- Made custom music work with non-ASCII filenames on Windows
- Implemented cloud saves using Steam's remote storage API
- Improved mod zipping/unzipping system without the use of external tools
- Fixed it so that crates + barrels can no longer be confused
- Added text to blood weapons and crown of thorns to show how many kills left until heal
- Made Dove’s bombs teleport enemies away rather than confuse them
- The EXE is now “code signed” to help cut down on false positives from virus scanners
- Made it so that bats move away from Dove, when confused
- Fix issue with crates/barrels dropping enemies too often, and enemies dying right away to the bomb or attack
- Fixed bug where HEARTTHROB achievement wouldn’t be triggered if the 10th heart was gained via Ring or Shrine of Peace
- Fixed bug where Orange Scroll could sometimes give out Dove’s flower as a weapon
- Made phasing damage hurt skeleton knights immediately
- Fixed bug where Blood Magic and Blood Drum could prevent a flawless victory in a boss battle
- Made crates/barrels drop good stuff slightly more often
- Made Scroll of Need give you a glass rapier if you have no weapon at all
- Fixed issue where Death Metal, Deep Blues, and 3-1 were skipping the wrong beat with Shrine of Rhythm
- Made Shrine of Space give out Miner’s Cap if bombed after being activated
- If Dove is surrounded by enemies and uses Scroll of Need, it now casts the Fear spell
- Made it so that Death Metal won’t spawn skeletons right next to bounce traps
- Allowed use of bombs in training mode
- Made ghasts not auto-hit player when bombed
- Fixed bug where you could still die after winning a Dove run
- Fixed bug where Aria and Dove would die immediately upon entering Dance Pad mode
- Fixed bug where ghosts could spawn inside walls in the Death Metal boss battle
- Fixed a memory leak
- Fixed issue where picking up multiple coin piles with Ring of Gold would result in incorrect flyaways
- Changed Janitor’s text to say 'NON-HARDCORE item pool'
- Fixed bug with confuse particles showing up too low, when player is confused
- Fixed issue with crates/barrels spawning enemies after trap door
- Made it so crates/barrels/urns can’t be Feared
- Made it so wraithlikes + moles don’t spawn for Eli
- Fixed issue where buying hearts in lobby with Eli/Dove gives you an extra heart as other characters
- Fixed bug where clones move when you do a non-movement action
- Monk unlock after zone 1 Cadence
- Dove unlock after zone 2 Cadence
- Changed text in character select room
- Popup in lobby when player has unlocked a new character
- Fixed trap door clipping when trap door is above a wall
- Fixed bug where sometimes flyaways don't appear on locked stairs in lobby
- Set item hints to ON by default for new players
- Changed the game from "alpha" to "beta" since it was confusing so many people, and since we're getting closer to the end

Looks like this is relatively on the home stretching kicking it to high gear---excellent.   8)

Urgent Question: do the monstrous shopkeepers sing in a different octave?! Eagerly expecting a dev reply ASAP.
