Rogue Legacy is a 2D platforming genealogical roguelite where anyone can be a hero. You must traverse a procedurally-generated castle to uncover the secrets of your cursed heritage. You have only one chance though, as there is no redemption from death. Fortunately your lineage spawns like bunny rabbits, and there are plenty of successors willing to pick up the sword. Unfortunately genetics aren't a perfect science, resulting in children who suffer from a variety of different traits, such as blindness, dyslexia, and even irritable bowels syndrome. Do you have what it takes to uncover your family's history and redeem its honor?

I really REALLY like this game.... the saddest thing is that all classes look the same!

...well except for a tiny change on the face sprite!

This game could use much more varied sprites.. so that if you are a lich you actually look like a lich and not just ANOTHER knight with a white face... i know this asks much in sprite assets but it would really help the immersion in this game..

So the armor would look different if worn by a lich vs a knight etc...
Or whatever.. in the end i just want more varied looks so not all armors and clothes are a full plate mail...
Chainmail, robes etcetc more variations!

Where do I find the latest version? I heard there was a new version but I'm still on version 1.0.8. Do I have to download it again?

Hey guys, when you get new weapons and pieces of armour, does it change the look of your character? I love seeing the physical changes since stat changes don't really give me a sense of progression :3

Got this on Steam. Absolutely fabulous rogue title. Challenging gameplay, smooth control, interesting dungeon layouts and enemies; it's all there. It really does remind me of a blend between Spelunker and Castlevania.
