    REM Cycles has popped up on Steam. Another modern retro styled CRPG, this one features a handful of people stuck in someone else's dream and mystery ensues. No sale price for this one, though it is budgeted at $14.99. Here's the head's up:


    REM Cycles is an indie strategy roguelike featuring a unique and diverse cast of characters, colorful 2D pixel art, and chiptune melodies that harken back to the golden era of SNES RPGs. Construct a team of four out of 10 playable characters to explore six dreamy locations, each with their own theme. Outside of battle, witness over 50 conversation arcs between every possible combination of characters to learn more about their lives, motivations, and dreams. You’ll want to get to know these folks well, as you’ll be spending a lot of time with them—in true roguelike fashion, REM Cycles is designed to be played more than once.

    Dreaming of a unique adventure? REM Cycles might be the one for you.​

    Odd that 15 years ago, pixel art was dead. Now it's everywhere. Everywhere.

    Good pixel art was never truly dead, Ferrari's style pixel art is eternal. The majority of pixel art you see nowadays is my little pony style pixel art. A good example of this is the abomination that you've just posted.

    Are you here Saint Proverbius for us to realize Infi isn’t that bad?
    A clever trick.

    Play as a black guy, who is really the dream of a black guy in yet another generic pixel game.
    And pay $15 for it.

    No thanks.

    Yeah, I didn't read DIVERSE quite how they meant it until I watched the video and realized it was yet another non-white fetishization game for white marxists.

    I hope they at least paid Saint a fiver to put this schlock on the front page.

    lol, I hadn't even heard of that one. It actually has white people, so it's already better.

    But yeah, it even shares the same price point and release date. Odd...

    The Codex needs a sage option for posts like this.

    Huh my excuse was that I have no money or talent, but I guess this is fine too.

    I don't usually want to slam my fellow starving indiedevs, but I'm genuinely surprised it took multiple people to make this.

    Looks awful, one of these devs should try actually making a game intead of just a random level generator.
