7 Most Underappreciated Games of 2020
In a year where Hades re-established that rogue-likes are more than just procedurally generated death loops, Star Renegades also displayed how much talented developers can do with the genre. Unfortunately, this title didn’t get anywhere near the fanfare that Hades did.
This dimension-spanning rogue-lite tells the story of a desperate fight between an interplanetary rebel alliance and the evil Imperium. To bring peace and stability back to the galaxy, players must lead a squad across multiple timelines, using the knowledge they gain from their battles in each of them to help progress the fight to the very end.
Right from the get-go, Star Renegades introduces a gripping story, stunning visuals, and compelling gameplay. Its turn-based battle system and intelligent Adversary system are a blast to experience, as your enemies learn and evolve right alongside you.
