It's very strange a the game tops a list of 45 and yet, the SOUNDTRACK is the 2nd highest point on its list, ergo, there's only 1 thing about this game better than listening to the sound coming out of it.
Deconstruct everything, this game (which predates minecraft) is the ONLY turn based survival roguelike out there. With mods that can make it anything from Stardew Valley, with or without zombies, to Ninja Gaiden the roguelike.
Classic computer gameplay that offers a lot of nostalgia
Open source and very moddable, making for a game that anyone can change to their liking
This is the perfect mix between the old roguelike mechanics and modern ease of use and graphics. The game is soooo deep and will give you more playtime than $20 probably ever should. The idea of a robot that can attach different parts is refreshing in a space where everything is basically fantasy.
