Anime Rogue-Lite, Rogue Spirit, Coming To Early Access This Year

Developed by Kids With Sticks and published by veteran 505 Games, Rogue Spirit is an anime-esque action rogue-lite set in a fictional version of feudal Japan.

Rogue Spirit is an upcoming indie game heading to Steam Early Access later this year. Developed by a small indie studio out of Poland, comprised of ex-AAA game developers, this single-player action-adventure game seeks to merge feudal Japan with an anime-styled rogue-lite experience. Focusing on making each run as unique as possible, all while interweaving light stealth elements, Rogue Spirit will “bring freshness to the rogue-like genre”. Andrzej Koloska, the Co-Owner of Kids With Sticks, spoke about their partnership with 505 Games and the potential it brings to their game.

“We are excited to work with such an experienced publisher. Thanks to 505 Games we were able to establish the Kids With Sticks initiative and focus all of our powers on developing Rogue Spirit. We hope to bring freshness to the rogue-like genre with an interesting core mechanic of possessing enemies and being able to absorb their skills.”
