This is Beacon, a roguelike top-down shooter with a very interesting twist on death (and rebirth).

You’re expected to die in a roguelike, but Beacon is trying something neat:

When you inevitably die, the DNA of the enemies you’ve killed can be used to grant you different stats and potentially gameplay-altering physical mutations for your next run.


It’s coming soon for PC, Mac and Xbox One.
