Joystiq Tiny Streams: Plumbing depths in Crypt of the NecroDancer

Block-rocking beats typically don't spring to mind when engaging in swords and sorcery fantasy. We don't automatically associate Tolkien and the dancefloor. Why shouldn't we? Skeletons and cave dwelling beasts like to get done, and so do fated heroes questing for loot and glory.

Crypt of the NecroDancer dares to challenge both your dungeon diving skills and your sense of rhythm. Joystiq's Sam Prell has already spent time with Crypt of the NecroDancer, speaking with its creators about how to translate music into slick pixel art; now, Sam takes Joystiq Tiny Streams on a guided tour of an alpha version of the game. No easy task, as you'll soon see.

If you enjoyed this stream, you can follow Sam's Twitch channel and tune in for more Joystiq Tiny Streams right here every Monday and Friday at 4PM EST. If you hunger for the live experience and want to hang out with the Joystiq crew, Joystiq Streams broadcasts live every Tuesday and Thursday at 4PM EST.
