Life Is but a Grind, Hopefully You Get Some Loot

Never-ending dungeon crawling comes to town with Rezrog.

Last time I saw a game with “No Difficulty Options”, it was a flop, however, Rezrog changes that with what has to be possibly the best take on the never-ending dungeon crawling genre. Dealing with the usual you find in dungeons; Wizards (often evil), grotesque creatures, the mother-in-law, Orc’s, remains of last nights dinner, making your way through and clearing one dungeon after another, etc.

However, as you will find out, this is a game that is perfect for the undead, I mean the actual undead, not cubicle dwellers, as that you have over 100 levels, over 10 environments, but with infinite procedural generation, so you will not have the same game twice. If you do, you may want to check the year.

Though the learning curve is apparently quite difficult, that unless you read the information correctly, even the tutorial will cost you a couple of your party members, and that is before you event start dealing with the problems of traps and everything else. But to help you on your way, we have had Kasedo Games give us the first installment of the “Rezrog Survival Guide”, about avoiding Perma-Death, which I do strongly suggest you watch.

Rezrog hits us on the 31st, so plenty of time to make up a massive list of names for all of your adventurers, and hope that they do better than my last D&D group…seriously, I was set up as a healer and was out damaging the Paladin!

Official Press Release

Rarely comes a game with a challenge so great that even the developers have struggled to complete it. With no option in difficulty modes, you are thrust into an ever-changing dungeon wilderness with sheer survival being your principal task. Welcome to Rezrog, which will release worldwide on Wednesday, May 31st.

Evil Wizards, grotesque creatures and hideous tongue-lashing swamp monsters from far around have descended to the darkest depths of the earth where they harvest the power of the gems found there. Take your team of brave adventurers, use your tactical nous and take advantage of enemy weaknesses to wrench the power back dungeon by dungeon in a quest to restore Rezrog to the peaceful land it once was.

Battle through 100 dungeon levels across 10 environments and with infinite procedurally generated dungeon layouts, no two play-throughs are ever the same. Other traps and pitfalls will also stand in your way to make each dungeon more challenging than the last. Testing saw countless players even fall to one of the early dungeons – get your tactics wrong and even the tutorial level can account for a number of your team.

The first in a series of Rezrog survival guides has also been released to show Rezrog’s unique party mechanic that puts a new spin on Permadeath. Enter a dungeon with any one of your team. If they are defeated, they are captured along with all the skills and loot they had acquired – but all is not lost for your fallen hero – come to their rescue, and release them to fight another day. Should all your team be captured however, your quest has come to an end.
