Named for the malevolent lords of Indian mythology, Asura is a 3D, isometric hack-n-slasher with roguelike elements that allows you to avenge your own death. After being burned at the stake by some arguably misguided holy men, you’re reincarnated as one of the eponymous evil lords. On your quest for vengeance, you’ll explore a procedurally-generated fortress, avoiding traps and battling enemies (including boss characters) while accumulating upgrades, armor, and weapons. With permadeath and plenty of style, Asura is sure to please the hardcore crowd that simply can’t wait for the next Dark Souls III DLC to hit. The game was recently Greenlit on Steam, so you’ll be able to get your fix soon.
