First 30: Curse Of The Dead Gods

Shout out to First Home Interactive for supplying a copy of this game so that I can get my butt kicked on... SDGT Live for your viewing pleasure. Curse Of The Dead Gods is an incredibly unforgiving rogue-lite game... that may tempt you to slam your control on the floor, but take a deep breath and try... try again! Here is one of my attempts... (which can technically be a First 30, because it's one of the initial temples) so... check it out:

Taking an L in Curse Of The Dead Gods is just part of the experience, so... get as much experience as you can. I do see an opening with this particular champion see in the First 30, but... what's interesting about this game is... you never know what condition you'll be in when you reach the champion. The curses will either jack you up or put you in the position of potentially owning a champion.

The character ended up in this situation seeking riches, eternal life, and divine powers. Not much of a story here, but... every game won't require it. That basically brings you up to speed... and you ultimately determine the outcome (granted... that's with any game). It would've been great to see more of a story to increase the depth of the game... but I don't know, maybe that would slow down the pace. The one thing they could do is... add some victory cut scenes to sweeten the wins, because... the struggle is real.

Collect mystical Relics and an arsenal of weapons to make yourself unstoppable. Battle through hordes of enemies in dark, cavernous passages filled with traps and secrets of all sorts - fire-spewing statues, explosives, hidden spikes, and worse.

Corruption builds in you with every step - encourage or ignore it, but each powerful curse can be a double-edged sword.

Your greed will lead you to death, but that is not an escape. Rise to fight again. Delve deeper again. Defy the malignant deities that linger in this place.
