Cryptark Is A Roguelike Shooter From Apotheon’s Devs

I like procedurally generated spaces not because I enjoy muddled corridors, but because it pushes designers to give their locations structure in other ways. In the case of roguelike shooter Cryptark [official site], that's filling its hulking spaceships with systems such as shield generators, repair systems, signal jammers, drone factories, sentry controllers and more.

Mythmas Time: Apotheon Trailer

Apotheon is one of the more interesting games on the horizon. It's a stunningly pretty action RPG set in ancient Greece, where you'll wander an open-world Mount Olympus as you attempt to overthrow Hera. It's from Alien Trap Games, who made the splendid Capsized, and they've just announced that if you pre-order Apotheon you'll get Capsized for free.

Hera Worship: Apotheon Is The Prettiest Of Pretties

Alientrap's new platform game, Apotheon, is pretty. A 2D platform action-RPG set in Greek mythology, where you'll fight your way to the top of Mount Olympus. It's the age old tale of a champion fighting for humanity against the wife and usurper of Zeus, Hera. We've all been there, battling Greek gods, stealing their powers, controlling the elements. I was doing just so last night,…
