KEMCO has announced that the roguelike Yōdanji is out now for Nintendo Switch on the Nintendo eShop, and for PC via Steam for $4.99 / €4.99.
Yōdanji is a coffee-break roguelike themed after Japanese folklore tales. Get the ability to summon and trap yokai – numerous spirits that have been living hidden among us (until now). Admire them and give them witty nicknames and then put them through the brutal ever-changing dungeon to try and summon even more yokai! Spooky cute graphics and powders made from various body parts included.
Ubiquitous nature of death in roguelikes
As it is customary in roguelikes, you character in Yōdanji is not an all-powerful hero. In fact, most of the time it will be weaker than many of the monsters in the dungeon! Prepare to die a lot. But with experience gained from each death, judicious use of items and a bit of luck you will surely prevail in the end. Of course, succeeding with some characters is easier than with others…
Summon them all
There are 20 characters to choose from, each with their unique abilities, peculiarities and playstyles. At the beginning you will have access to only 3. Sneak, fight and dash through the dungeon to collect scrolls with each yokai’s lore and summon more! Find your favorite and delve into the Challenge Dungeon to see just how deep you can go!
