Looking for something dark, something fuelled by fantasy, something roguelike? You got it with Vagante. 

Developed by the small team at Nuke Nine, before being picked up in publishing terms by those at BlitWorks, Vagante is an action-packed roguelike platformer which deals with the darkest of all fantasy settings. 

Priced at £11.74 on the Xbox Store and fully playable on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, with versions on PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch too, Vagante offers you the opportunity to choose your hero and go it alone, taking on the deepest, darkest depths of some of the most dangerous dungeons known to man. And if you can’t hack it alone? Well, local and online cooperative play is in the house to help you out. 

Terrifying threats and fierce foes await any adventurer worth their salt as Vagante looks to kick and twist you through its challenging – yet fair – class-based roguelike systems. There’s a huge emphasis on combat here (as you’d expect really), but equally heading on out in search of the finest loot is a gritty alternative. 

With BlitWorks having recently works on the likes of Spelunky 2, the fascinating world of Vagante is one that sounds equally interesting. 

The key features include:

  • Support for up-to 4 players Local and Online Co-op – Join your friends and jump into the adventure!
  • Class-based, Choose How You Play – Choose a unique class, skin, and background, then customize your character further as you play with your choice of unique class skills at each level.
  • Procedurally Generated Dungeons – With procedurally generated levels, no two runs are ever the same, allowing for countless hours of gameplay.
  • Permadeath and permanent specializations unlock system – As players progress further in the adventure, they will count with a broader range of playstyles, their characters won’t be technically stronger but instead their experience and learnings will make their skills improve over time.
