Roguelike term is pointless now anyway, has become almost completely meaningless. This Legerdemain game does look like what I'd call a "legit" roguelike, but as someone who spent metric fucktons of time on all the big ones way back when (Rogue, Hack, Nethack, Larn, Omega, Moria, Angband, etc), I couldn't honestly tell you why people are calling many of these new games "roguelikes" today - most of them have gameplay absolutely nothing "like" Rogue.

FYI @HiddenX, the GoFundMe link in the newspost is broken.
