Nuclear Throne is a game that punishes a lack of skill without judgement or pretension.  When you've failed to reach your distant goal for the 13th time in an hour, the game doesn't chide you or offer to lower its own difficulty (the most underhanded of insults, in my opinion).  Instead, it merely tells you, "You deserved that.  Wanna go again?"  This isn't a new formula by any means.  Plenty of games offer near-immediate restarts upon failure, but it's a technique that I've found myself dwelling on more and more as my experiences with roguelikes deepen.  In some twisted way, I've found it to be almost encouraging, like a stern, no-nonsense kung fu master.  Despite continued failures, the game persists in our training, knowing that our determination will eventually give way to some deep, untapped potential.

Thursday Stream Recap: Nuclear Throne Episode 3Enoch Starnes

We made substantial progress last night, mostly because we finally gave into that fad all the kids are into called - correct me if I'm wrong - "learning from our mistakes(???)".  Because we're professionals, our past couple sessions had mostly consisted of ramming our heads into the proverbial wall over and over and then dazedly cheering when, lo and behold, a millimeter of cement happened to chip off.  This time around, though, your intrepid heroes spent a small amount of time reflecting on what went wrong after each failed attempt and then applied that newly gleaned knowledge onto the next run.  The effects weren't exactly mind-blowing, but hey, the planet didn't become a nuclear wasteland overnight.

For the time being, not much is known about the game outside of those scant few details and that the story was written by the current writer of the IDW comic, Tom Waltz. From the trailer itself, there does appear to some kind of co-op team up move that a few of the turtles perform around the 0:55 mark, which is always nice to see.

The concept of the roguelike has, shall we say, saturated the market for the last couple of years now.  Starting around 2011, developers big and small clamored to incorporate the major pillars of the genre into their games, varying in both extent and effect.  For many, that clamoring amounted to some form of procedural generation, but a f...
