Vagrant is a challenging, class-based permadeath roguelite with very combat-focused gameplay. The art uses desaturated but warm colors, in a somewhat grungy style, influenced by titles such as Final Fantasy Tactics, Tactics Ogre, and Vagrant Story. On their quest for priceless treasure, up to 4 players can team up, locally or online, and take on dangerous dungeons inhabited by ferocious creatures and dangerous bosses.

The quality of the game and the organic growth in the number of players caught the attention of BlitWorks (which has already worked on other roguelites with online multiplayer support, such as Spelunky 2 and Heroes of Hammerwatch: Ultimate Edition) to decide to port and publish the game. on consoles, thus allowing many new players to discover the fascinating world of Vagante.

Almost unlimited replayability. I managed to put over 1000 hours into this game because it keeps putting me in unique scenarios even though the level generation variety isn’t that great. Not only are there many combinations, the gear is so random that you’ll get very different stats and perks to use at various points in the game.” – Max9999
