Every Battle Is A Date In Roguemance


Finding out if you're compatible with someone COULD be done over a quiet conversation at dinner. However, what if, instead, you found out how well you mesh with someone over an evening of clobbering monsters instead with Roguemance, a procedurally-generated RPG about finding love through combat and adventuring?

The Heartipelago is in trouble, but monstrous invasions doesn't mean there isn't time to really get to know one another in Roguemance. Before going off to fight, players will seek out a generated partner to join them, each with their own personalities, likes, and motivations. Players will then have to work alongside those wants and desires if they want to keep the relationship going, or find someone who feels the same as them about monster-slaying and loot gathering.

Once players have someone to cherish, they can set out to fight monsters in quick, menu-based combat. They'll need to factor in the position of themselves and their partner, as accidentally stabbing your date in the face while fighting a living, magical boulder tends to sour the evening. Through combat and exploration, players will either grow closer to their partner or more distant, so it's up to the player to decide to move on or compromise to find a happy middle ground with your partner.

If your idea of love includes a battlefield, Roguemance may make for a delightful partner.

Roguemance is available for $6.99 on Steam. For more information on the game and developer Lucas Molina, you can head to the game's site or follow them on IndieDB, YouTube, and Twitter.
