Do you love Dead Cells, Hades and Spelunky? They All Lead Here: The classic role-playing game Rogue, created by Michael Toy and Glen Wichman in 1980.

With distinctive graphics, deep gameplay, and genre-defining ideas, Rogue ushered in a generation of games based on trying, dying, and repeating. It will test you in a way that many modern games won't, but as players discovered 40-plus years ago, there are few games in the history of the genre that effectively ask you to "do the level again."

Grimace's Birthday

In honor of Grimace's milestone 52nd birthday, McDonald's has teamed up with Brooklyn game studio Krool Toys to create an impressively authentic platformer that feels like it's been ripped out of the 1990s.
