Coop Catacombs: Async Multiplayer Roguelike
« on: May 17, 2024, 09:52:17 AM »
Hey Roguetemple Community,

I’m excited to introduce Coop Catacombs, a traditional roguelike with a unique twist: asynchronous multiplayer and cooperative play. Explore static dungeons alongside other players, leaving messages and items to aid or deceive fellow adventurers. Complete a dungeon to reset it for all players, increasing its difficulty and etching your name in history!

Features:

    - Procedural generation
    - Permadeath
    - Turn-based combat
    - Diverse weapons, magic, and traps
    - Dynamic graveyard and player messages
    - Coop gamplay

Join the adventure and leave your mark! Check out the game on itch.io.

Happy dungeon crawling!

Hi.

No! The game have asynchronous multiplayer.

All the players face the same dungeon in their own. But it's cooperative because you can help the rest of the players by giving information about the dungeon, the layour, the monsters, the traps, the items... using messages on the floor and walls.

And if you die, you can leave one of your items on the floor, helping the next player to complete the dungeon.

The moment the dungeon is beaten, a new (harder) one will generate for all the players.

I recently bought this game, but I also noticed it really favours the Overseer (I am the worst flicker in the world, but I managed to win with ease against people who are quite a bit better) and I love games I can play solo as well.
