"The cutest roguelike you'll ever die to."

Bring civilization to Sproggiwood, a story-driven, turn-based roguelike set in a humorous world inspired by Finnish mythology. Grow your civilization and plunder procedural dungeons with six unique classes. Outsmart mischievous monsters who work together in unexpected ways. No two dungeon dives are alike.

Story:
Youre a simple farmer from the peaceful island of Clog. One moment, you're tending your grove -- the next, youre lured through a mysterious portal by a talking sheep. Now youre the prisoner of Sproggi, a mischievous forest spirit who's built a whole village just for you. You have a simple job: tame the wild creatures that roam the forests of Sproggi's realm...

Watch Sproggi's plans go awry when you discover a rival civilization on the rise to greatness. Will you choose to befriend these curious Mushroom people and stand together, or will you crush them and claim Sproggiwood for your own? Seize the day and civilize Sproggiwood now!

Gameplay:
Sproggiwood distills the roguelike genre down to its core fun ingredients: inspired character classes, loads of interesting loot, and procedurally populated dungeons with monsters and traps that combine to produce totally unique tactical challenges. In Sproggiwood, adventure sessions are compact and chock-full of interesting choices for you to make. Each dungeon dive follows the heroic rise of one adventurer from your civilization. Journey through teeming forests, haunted swamps, teetering cliffs, and glacial mazes to uncover your civilization's whole story.

Features:
-A wondrous and humorous setting inspired by Finnish mythology
-Brain-churning tactical combat vs. an assortment of creative monsters and traps
-Six fully unique, customizable classes: simple farmer, brave warrior, merry: archer, cunning thief, brainy wizard, and creepy vampire
-Procedural dungeons filled to the brim with scrolls, potions, swords, and staves
-Town decoration mode with buildings, trees, roads, and villagers

This is possibly the best day a roguelike lover could ever have!

I love this on PC and wholeheartedly recommend it. It's more traditional than Desktop Dungeons, much lighter in difficulty too but that's not to say it's simple. The progression through the structured campaign is fantastic and the city-building is really nice; simple but plenty of personality.

If you can only choose one, I'd probably go with DD admittedly but that's no slight on this one. Can't wait to double double-dip tonight!

Yep. And this is the other roguelike!
Great week for roguelikes.

$12.99 NZD seems to be the lottery numbers

(Oh and good to see iPhone gets some love this time)

The supported list below doesn't match the game description, I got burned before and bought a game that did not work on my old iPad2, similar to this scenario. It was my fault but something to keep in mind.

Mission Europa 2 is coming!!!

This looks great, but there are almost no write ups out there of the PC version. Speaking of PC, this one isn't coming to mobile, but if you guys are into roguelikes, you should check out Cogmind if you aren't familiar with it. It is in alpha still, and I think I want to wait until more of the story elements are in, but it is one of the more unique roguelikes I've ever seen.

I played DD a bit on PC but imagine I will end up picking it up as well.
