This was a big year for the team at Cellar Door Games. After spending months on Steam Early Access, Rogue Legacy 2 finally hit 1.0. For those who waited for that milestone, the sequel to the original roguelike was well worth the wait. Players got to take a whole new batch of descendants across an expansive world filled with new biomes, new challenges, and brand new bosses.

Get an in-depth look at the making of Estuary Lamech and Estuary Naamah, starting with their initial conception and going down to the final paint and polish. Take a rare look at the design process, along with concept art, scrapped ideas, and much more.
