Rogue: Genesia is a 2D action roguelite where you play as Rog - a weapons master that has to fight against endless hordes of enemies. In this game, you have full control over what Rog will do during the course of his journey. Rogue: Genesia offers more than 60 passive upgrades and 16 weapons to choose from, with many unique and powerful artifacts to collect that will greatly impact your experience.

Just recently, the game got a major patch that introduced a lot of new features; chief among them is the new Avatar System. The new Avatar System in Update 0.8 is sort of a class system in other games where Rog transforms into a specific avatar, each with its own gimmicks and stats.

The Rogue, for example, is an avatar primarily built for speed. This avatar has low durability and raw damage compared to others, but its increased speed and higher critical strike chance ensure that enemies will still be dispatched quickly.

Update 0.8 also brought the Talent System to Rogue: Genesia. With this system, you can now equip powerful active and multiple passive talents before you start your runs.
