The twisted lovechild of Dragon Warrior Monsters, Path of Exile, and Mystery Dungeon.
If you're a fan of creature collecting and in-depth RPG mechanics, I've got a game for you: Siralim Ultimate, the latest release in the indie RPG series of monster collecting and combining games. It's all about building up a party of powerful monsters, combining the best into other, more powerful monsters, throwing them into 6v6 monster battles, and using them to clear not just a main story but bojillions of procedurally generated dungeons.
Siralim Ultimate is the fourth game in the series, with the previous three released over the last five years. It spent the last few months in Early Access, and as of writing has 95% positive reviews. Ultimate's got a lot going on, with more than 1200 creatures, each with its own unique ability, all of which can be combined into millions of permutations, and finally influenced by each of 30 different character classes. You can also do... a lot more.
