Fulton, MD - October 20, 2017 - Independent game developer Impact Gameworks today announced that their roguelike dungeon crawler, Tangledeep, has undergone a special Halloween transformation that offers limited-time items and unique, powerful rewards to daring explorers with a sweet tooth for challenge.

In addition to special limited-time item drops and frightening Halloween-themed visuals, the Halloween update also introduces a new permanent feature to Tangledeep: Nightmare Bosses. Only the bravest of the brave dare challenge these powerful enemies, which dwell within magical items. If players can defeat these powerful bosses and overcome perilous new areas, they'll have a shot at being rewarded with some of the most powerful magical modifiers and gear in all of Tangledeep!

A fully detailed list of newly added features and items can be found on Steam.

About Tangledeep

Tangledeep is a dungeon-crawling tribute to the golden age of RPGs, inspired by the lively visuals and music of such classic games as Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger. Its strategic, turn-based gameplay combines the accessibility and polish of these games, and draws from a rich history of roguelikes from NetHack to Shiren the Wanderer and even modern dungeon crawlers like Diablo. Players can approach the titular, ever-changing labyrinth in a myriad of ways, using the game's robust character job system and huge assortment of equipment to create a unique experience with each playthrough.

The Tangledeep soundtrack is also highly notable, featuring two styles: an authentic, retro SNES version, and a modern version with beautiful orchestration and live-recorded instrumentalists. Largely including music written by Andrew "zircon" Aversa (the game's programmer and designer), the Tangledeep soundtrack will also feature guest contributions by legendary composers such as Hiroki Kikuta of Secret of Mana and Seiken Densetsu 3 fame and Grant Kirkhope, composer for games like GoldenEye 007, Banjo-Kazooie, and Yooka-Laylee.
