I played through Iratus: Lord of the Dead quite a bit when it was in early access, and enjoyed it more than I thought I would. This playthrough was completed on what was the hardest difficulty at the time. I believe they did end up adding additional zones and bosses (as well as new units). I’d love to come back to it someday if there is any interest from viewers.
ABOUT Iratus: Lord of the Dead
You control an obedient army of the living dead, with skeletons, zombies, banshees and many other unliving warriors. Create your soldiers the only way a necromancer knows how: from the body parts of your slain enemies!
Expand and improve your underground lair. Strengthen your servants by researching secret rituals. Explore the twisted corridors and underground catacombs, and battle against lobotomized miners, greedy dwarves and corrupt mercenaries. Aid Iratus in his quest to recapture and eclipse his former power. Lead him to conquer the forces of good and unleash an eternal kingdom of death upon the world!
The sheer variety of tactical and strategic options makes Iratus a true treat for any ardent fans of the roguelike genre.
Play on the side of evil, embodied by the necromancer Iratus!
Expand and improve your underground lair.
18 types of obedient servants: zombies, vampires, skeletons, mummies, banshees and many more!
Craft minions from the body parts of your conquered enemies.
Advanced combat system: to win you need to know both the strengths and weaknesses of your troops and enemies.
Iratus can kill his enemies not only by magic or claw but also by draining their sanity!
Each minion has six unique abilities for a total of nearly one-hundred abilities for you to command.
Four talent trees that alter the way you play: Alchemy, Magic, Ire and Destruction.
Roguelike elements: minions that die are gone for good and the game saves automatically, making each choice irreversible.
