Rogue with the Dead is an original roguelike RPG where you command and power up troops on an endless, looping journey.
What kills you makes you stronger.
An innovative game from room6, the team that has brought you such successes as Unreal Life and Gen’ei AP.
◆Defeat the Demon Lord
Your mission is to lead an envoy of soldiers for 300 miles, in order to defeat the Demon Lord at the end.
Completing quests and killing monsters will earn you coins that you can use to make your troops stronger.
They fight automatically, and you can choose to either wait and watch them have at it or join the battle yourself.
Soldiers respawn after they’re killed, but you don’t. You’ll lose all soldiers, money, and items, except for artifacts, and you’ll have to start over.
To stand a chance against the powerful bosses impeding your progress, you’ll need to collect as many artifacts as you can. Defeating them, in turn, will grant you more artifacts.

◆Watch the numbers grow
At first, you’ll deal 10 or 100 points of damage. As you progress, the numbers will grow in the millions, billions, trillions... Enjoy the exponential growth of your power.
◆A varied roster of soldiers
A basic warrior unit with high health who fights on the front line to protect other soldiers.
An archer that can attack from afar. However, it is slower and has less health than warriors.
A tiny warrior with low health and weak attack, but very fast movement. It can quickly sneak close to enemies to attack them directly.

◆If you’re tired, just idle

You can play for a few minutes at a time, so it’s perfect to fill in those little pockets of time throughout the day.
