Steam: Crystal Rift to Bring Dungeon Crawling to Steam if Greenlight Project is Successful

For a lot of people our coverage of first person dungeon crawling role playing games may be a little outside of the term “retro”.  The thing is, they are squarely in the retro theme, one of the oldest styles of role playing games was the dungeon crawler (Wizardry leading the way for instance).  Crystal Rift […]
