Looking for the next Roguelike
« on: September 14, 2022, 11:33:22 AM »

I recently discovered this forum and would like some help with finding new rougelikes that fit my preference. 6-7 years ago I discovered the genre and fell in love with it, today I have played through about 50-60 rougelike games (both traditional and action) and consider it one of my hobbies.

So i'm looking for a new roguelike it can be a traditional, deckbuilder or action roguelike, doesn't matter I just want the rogue elements as a concept. Clean runs is an absolute necessity for me (unlocking content that can be found in dungeons are OK). I prefer a wide variety of items and powerups to make each run unique. I also prefer it to be in a medieval/fantasy settings but it's not a dealbreaker.

Here's some of the games that I have enjoyed the most and suits my preference best:

Enter the Gungeon
Slay the Spire
Mana spark
Forward Escape the fold
Shattered pixel dungeon

And these are some games that I find dissapointing and gave up on. I have tried to like them but I just don't find them enjoyable.

Nuclear throne
The binding of Isaac
Risk of Rain 1 & 2
Rogue legacy 1 & 2
Dead cells

I would appreciate if you could recommend some games to me, I might be a bit picky and I can't really put a precise judgement why I enjoy some games more than others. I have given up on some big titles with good reviews, that I kind of feel like would be enjoyable but it just doesn't cut it for me. Feel free to ask questions to narrow it down if that would help.

Please let me know what titles you recommend and why.

Thanks in advance

Triangle Wizard and Catacomb kids might stoke your intrigues with the former and further develop your appetites whetted by the latter.
