So, what is a rogue-like platformer then? Why, something not wholly dissimilar to Spelunky I believe. Also a platformer with procedurally generated levels if we feel like going for a more inclusive description. Just like Risk of Rain apparently; the truly intriguing platformer that's attempting to get itself funded via Kickstarter and a game that will also feature a time=difficulty mechanic (the longer you play, the harder things get), a rich selection of enemies, weapons, items and bosses, stylish graphics and the always brilliant music of Chris Christodoulou.

You can already give the demo (direct download) a try and, of course, secure your copy for as low as $10 or pay a bit more and grab all sorts of rewards.
