ICYMI: I reviewed Star Renegades, the tactical rouge-lite RPG that beats you into the ground and asks your alternate universe doppelganger to avenge your lifeless corpse, repeating the process over and over again. It’s some good fun. Read my full review on Black Nerd Problems.
Publisher: Raw Fury / Developer: Massive Damage / Platform: PC / Release Date: September 8, 2020
There’s something so satisfying about a good gameplay loop that almost nothing else matters. It’s a trait that is almost required of traditional turned based RPGs and rogue-lites. When you put the two together then it’s essential that you nail that loop down, because it’s just about the only thing your player will be doing for 75 percent of the game.
Star Renegades, the new game from developer Massive Damage and publisher Raw Fury, not only masters that loop but makes it feel like almost everything else in the game is inconsequential. That’s not a bad thing. Sure, there are some flaws but this tactical rouge-lite RPG’s gameplay is so addictive and fun that it blinds you to whatever shortcomings it may have.
Yeah, soooo my second playthrough of Star Renegades didn’t go quite as planned. That secret dungeon was a trap. Watch me suffer a humiliating defeat at a game I thought I knew how to play. Roguelikes, I tell ya.
My first live stream on a new set up. Forgive the audio issues. I know you can barely hear me but on the plus side, you can see all the great RPG goodness coming out of Star Renegades. Even that dope ass soundtrack.
Star Renegades is the cool new roguelike RPG coming from Massive Damage. The combat mechanics are the biggest draw where moves determine who attacks first and can even delay enemy attacks. Watch for yourself and you can see just how the game plays.
