Crypt of the NecroDancer

Crypt of the NecroDancer

Crypt of the NecroDancer is a hardcore roguelike rhythm game. Can you survive this deadly dungeon of dance, slay the NecroDancer and reclaim your still beating heart? Or will you be a slave to rhythm for all eternity?


In the main game, the player controls Cadence, the daughter of a famous treasure hunter who has disappeared. While searching for him, she gets into a crypt controlled by the necrotic dancer. The latter steals Cadence's heart and forces her to challenge his henchmen to get it back. She must fight her way through the crypt's dungeon, her actions tied to the beat of the music and her heart, in order to stay alive and defeat the Necro Dancer. Near the heart of the crypt, Cadence finds one of the Necro Dancer's minions named "Dead Ringer." She defeats him and reveals that it was her missing father. She frees him from the Necro Dancer's control so he can help her defeat the Necro Dancer. They take the Necro Dancer's magical golden lute and use it to kill him and revive Cadence's dead mother, Melody. However, they discover that the lute is cursed. Melody must play it forever to preserve her life, but the lute will gradually consume her humanity, just as it did the necro dancer. Melody enters the crypt in search of answers and a way to break the lute's curse. When Melody reaches the end of the crypt, she uses the Golden Lute to resurrect the Necro Dancer and find answers, but he attacks and Melody defeats him. The Necro Dancer tries to escape, but is thrown into a crevice by Aria (Melody's mother), who was lying in a coffin with a dagger in her chest, and is brought back to life by the lute. Aria reveals that she knows how to break the Lute's curse, but was betrayed by the necro dancer and presumed dead. She wants to finish what she started and sets out from the crypt in search of a shrine that can destroy the lute once and for all. When Aria reaches the shrine, she is attacked by the Lute itself, which transforms into a large monster to save itself from destruction. After defeating the monster form of the lute, Aria sacrifices her life to destroy the cursed instrument so that Melody can become fully alive again and return to her family, which Aria later buries together.
