Masochists Wanted for Tomb Raiding

Unlike some other resident rouge-like (or lite) haters, I am not against the genre. I am fond of some rouge-likes I have played: The Binding of Isaac, Rogue Legacy and Legend of Dungeon are all rouge-likes I have enjoyed in the past. I have several more on my list I'm willing to give a chance as well. The reason I like the above-mentioned games is that they are not over-punishing.

Iím not some Johnny-Come-Lately Roguelike-hate bandwagoneer, no, Iíve completely loathed every single whiff of that abomination of Arcade Mentality mashed-up with the Glorious RPG Genre for as long as Iíve been aware of it. A brief resurgence of Roguelike proliferation during the PS1 era saw me unwittingly butting heads with the subgenre again...
