Tangledeep combines the 16-bit graphics and polish of classic SNES-era RPGs with elements from roguelikes and dungeon crawlers to create a magical experience for players of all skill levels. Trapped in underground villages with no memory of the world at the surface, you must survive an ever-changing labyrinth to discover what lies above. Experience rich, tactical, turn-based gameplay as you explore a sprawling dungeon that’s different each time you play. Tangledeep features a customizable job system and hundreds of collectible items that allow you to approach each playthrough in a totally new way!

The Setting

For hundreds of years, people have lived in the safety of underground settlements and villages – where the only route to the surface is “Tangledeep,” a mysterious and ever-changing labyrinth. With memories of the surface world long forgotten, you set out for the labyrinth to discover what lies above. With each floor – full of magical beasts, ancient automatons, bizarre environments and hybrid biomes – the mystery grows ever deeper…

Does this come with the expansions (and if not, will they ever be available through itch?)

Does this game support Chinese language?


Thank you for the reply! If I want to get the expansion too, is it better to buy  the game on GOG?  Or in other words, will the expansion be available on itch.io in the future?


No comment yet? That's weird.

Tangledeep is a wonderful roguelike, full of wonders and mysteries, while being really brutal at the same time. This game takes the traditional roguelike formula and puts it into a nice, JRPG-esque package, making it a great first roguelike for those who want to get into the genre.
