I got this in a free trial of Humble Choice because I'd seen the cover image around and thought it might be fun. It feels like a €5 student project so I was genuinely surprised to see it for €25. There's some kind of zombie apocalypse and the idea is to get to the end of each level. It's dark, and you have a torch which lets zombies see you. You also make a lot of noise moving around. There are usually no weapons, so it's mostly sneaking then a mad dash once you get spotted. Same problem as most games like this - loads of random ingredients and you don't have the right bits to craft anything. Could have been ok if it was a linear hand-crafted game, but roguelike is just a lazy way out.
