The roguelike dungeon game Crypt of the NecroDancer, the exploration experience originally released back in 2015, has received its first update on Steam in five years – and some people out there thought this game was dead.
A blog post that is dedicated to the activity of Crypt of the NecroDancer announced the news today and noted down a detailed list of the quality-of-life improvements made for version 3.0.0. Some of the improvements were extra Steam Deck support and an editor that can alter the levels of the game.

What’s Expected From Crypt of the NecroDancer Now?
Crypt of the NecroDancer is set to have a bit of a makeover from the team over at Brace Yourself Games. This update is planned as the first that moves the game back into the spotlight again, hitting it with a host of modernizations.
The blog post for this roguelike dungeon game reads as follows,
“You might be saying, ‘Brace Yourself Games, it’s been 5 years. Why are you updating now? Well, let’s just say this is a precursor to something bigger coming your way, and we want to make sure that we address some of the community’s most significant feedback before we get there.”
You might be asking, “what exactly is changing in Crypt of the NecroDancer then?” Well, No Beat Mode has been added to all the characters; it is now possible to save and quit at any time you like (something that caused a slight issue in the past), controller support is now much improved, and Steam Deck support too.
Brace Yourself Games also confirmed that the custom music in its roguelike dungeon game has had a major makeover. It is now possible to save multiple playlists and switch between whichever one you like best, and more audio file formats are now supported.
The co-op mode in Crypt of the NecroDancer has been altered for the better, with an up-to-date replay system, updated leader boards, a new speed run timer, and some general gameplay updates along with bug fixes. For the complete breakdown, you can read the blog post here.
