WHY YOU MIGHT NOT LIKE THIS GAME
Ebony Spire: Heresy is a niche game that combines roguelike mechanics with old-style first-person dungeons. The game is designed as a coffee-break game (short gaming sessions) and may be a deal-breaker for some players, while others may enjoy the fast level-to-level progress when they are waiting in queues in an online game.
