Yokai Crawl is an accessible roguelike based on Japanese mythology. 

Currently is just one open procedural generated map filled with yokais to kill, and only one hero, but multiple ways to level up and adapt each run.


Darkness has invaded the land. 

Slowly but steady has reached every corner of our country.

Demons walk everywhere free.

It’s time for the Hero of Yamato to stand up and cleanse the Darkness.

Find the key to the demons portal and slay the source of all evil.
