Crypt of the Necrodancer: a rhythm roguelike hands-on

Aug 19, 2014

  Roguelike and rhythm aren’t two words you’re probably accustomed to hearing in the same sentence, much less applied to the same subject.

Overkill Software and Robert Kirkman have announced a new venture together. A Walking Dead co-op shooter containing, shooting, zombies, action, stealth, survival horror, role playing elements and more zombies.
