'Tangledeep' Early Access Update, Also Coming to Nintendo Switch - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 4, 2017 @ 8:59 a.m. PDT

Enter the magical world of Tangledeep, a beautifully polished dungeon crawler inspired by classic 16-bit RPGs!

For hundreds of years, people have lived in the safety of underground settlements and villages – where the only route to the surface is “Tangledeep,” a mysterious and ever-changing labyrinth. With memories of the surface world long forgotten, you set out for the labyrinth to discover what lies above. With each floor – full of magical beasts, ancient automatons, bizarre environments and hybrid biomes – the mystery grows ever deeper…

Tangledeep is a dungeon-crawling tribute to the golden age of RPGs, inspired by the lively visuals and music of such classic games as Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger. Its strategic, turn-based gameplay combines the accessibility and polish of these games, and draws from a rich history of roguelikes from NetHack to Shiren the Wanderer and even modern dungeon crawlers like Diablo. Players can approach the titular, ever-changing labyrinth in a myriad of ways, using the game's robust character job system and huge assortment of equipment to create a unique experience with each playthrough.

Trapped in underground villages with no memory of the world at the surface, you must survive an ever-changing labyrinth to discover what lies above. Experience rich, tactical, turn-based gameplay as you explore a sprawling dungeon that’s different each time you play. Tangledeep features a customizable job system and hundreds of collectible items that allow you to approach each playthrough in a totally new way!

The Tangledeep soundtrack is also highly notable, featuring two styles: an authentic, retro SNES version, and a modern version with beautiful orchestration and live-recorded instrumentalists. Largely including music written by Andrew "zircon" Aversa (the game's programmer and designer), the Tangledeep soundtrack will also feature guest contributions by legendary composers such as Hiroki Kikuta of Secret of Mana and Seiken Densetsu 3 fame and Grant Kirkhope, composer for games like GoldenEye 007, Banjo-Kazooie, and Yooka-Laylee.


Tangledeep will be coming to Nintendo Switch in early 2018.

Players with a thirst for adventure can dive into lush world of Tangledeep today by downloading the game on Steam via Early Access ($14.99). Additional news regarding the release of Tangledeep on Nintendo Switch will be made available in the coming months.

The latest update to Tangledeep introduces players to the Monster Corral, wherein players are now able to capture any monster and add them to their very own in-game corral located in Riverstone Grove. Each monster has its own unique stats and traits, and will respond differently to other monsters in the corral, but with the proper care and affection a happy monster can accompany players as they explore and fight their way through the labyrinth of Tangledeep. Over time, captured monsters will develop relationships with one another and can be bred to hatch new monsters that share similar characteristics and stats to that of their parents. With careful selection, players can breed and raise the ultimate, unique monster pet!
