Cool, this is a buy.

Edit: Found this.

You can get it at discount and a steam key here:

http://www.roguelegacy.com/

Edit: Discount done, but I think it's still worth the price. I still say buy from the site and support the dev directly.

@kenobi: They have taken down the pre-orders, yesterday was the last chance I believe.

Edit: pre-orders back up until sunday!

Glad I found out about this game a couple days ago.

Can't wait for the 27th.

Played the demo of this a few weeks ago and immediately preordered it. I'm looking forward to its release next week! Also looking forward to watching this QL tonight.

Well, this sucks. Looks like they took down the preorder yesterday, which got you the game for $10. Guess I'll wait for a Steam or Humblebundle sale.

The stunning conclusion to Vinny's Jazz odyssey! Bud Powell is also good on the piano.

@sixpin: you should still buy it from the dev site. An extra five bucks aint bad and it goes the the dev. Support small developers.

Oh wow, didn't realize this was such a Castlevania tribute. Looks like a lot of fun, and pretty charming too! Could see myself spending a good amount of time with this game.

Hey I remember voting for this on Greenlight. Hope it comes to steam soon, because this looks even more awesome than I had hoped.

IIRC they said there's another already recorded QL that will go out tomorrow or Monday. Not sure if old Scoops will be in it, though.

Was I reading that menu right? That one of the skills Patrick unlocked had 75 ranks to it?

Geez. Even rogue'lite' is pushing it. All it has going for it is randomized levels - still, I appreciate the courtesy to make such a distinction. Too often 'roguelike' gets tossed around in the media by people without a shred of familiarity with the genre.

Rogue Legacy is a great example of how a demo can help a game. I saw the trailer for RL but I wasn't sure about it. A week later they released the demo and I was ready to pre-order after playing it for hours.

Rouge-lite is a good way to describe it because it does have random dungeons and you have to restart each time, but when I was playing it felt much more like a Castlevania game than a rogue game.

I can't recommend Rogue Legacy enough to people who like 2D platforming action. If you order today the pre-order discount is still valid. http://www.roguelegacy.com/

The pre-order discount has been extended to Sun. night and it should be on steam next week. I ran across it a few weeks ago and the demo is good but the full version has lots more to offer that was not in the demo. New traits and layouts 300+ unique layouts I'll be sinking many hours into this game. Nearly broke double digits on the demo alone.

They aren't mocking or making fun of Dyslexic people and if you interpreted it as that then I'm not sure what to say to you. They certainly make light of the condition itself, which is fine because it's honestly a funny gag and they do it in a really inoffensive way. "Dyslexic piss taking" would be finding a way to call dyslexic people less intelligent or something similar. With all the crazy disorders and other traits the game throws at you, they manage to do it all in a really classy and funny way, I found.

Awww, seems like they nerfed the Mage something fierce. Before, they had a Siphon of 10, meaning 10 MP for every enemy you kill.

Frankly, he was rather overpowered, especially with additional Siphon runes, but it was fun to just kill everything and STILL gain MP.

You mean "you are a fan of the man"? Because that's literally just the definition of gay in silly rhyme form. No stereotyping, no judgment, no nothing. The developers have said they put the trait in there because they thought it was important. It doesn't actually do anything.

@spunkyhepanda: I'll be honest, I'm not really bothered by that, either, but the problem is that by putting in the "Gay" trait, they're saying that everyone whose sexual orientation is not mentioned is heterosexual. Furthermore, they said that if they didn't put in the "Gay" trait, it would mean that gay people couldn't be heroes.

It seems as if they're saying that a character whose sexual orientation isn't mentioned is automatically heterosexual, thus propagating a hetero-normative world view which is rather problematic.

I like the look of this game. And these are the same guys that made Don't Shit Your Pants, apparently, which makes it all the better.

I think the premise is clever. The quest to 'Avenge your father' implies that either you've been playing this game for a while or that all your characters share family trait.

You're right, there are some definite problems with how it's represented in the game (and some of the messaging they've used outside the game.) Still, I'd hate to see them get dragged through the mud for this because I know their heart was in the right place. I hope there can be a civil discussion about it.
