Rogues with Benefits
is an online multiplayer top-down co-op hack 'n slash with roguelite influences for PC where players can go in alone or in teams of up to 4 and attempt to clear the levels and survive difficult encounters. Losing the game means they have to restart from the beginning, with a fresh character.
Rogues with Benefits was originally a highly succesful USAT student project. It won several awards, but development was unfortunately discontinued after the team graduated from USAT.
The original work and development blog can still be found here.
Yellowcake Games was co-founded by two of the developers of Rogues With Benefits with the intention of developing it into a complete game with a new vision.
