We've been working on implementing a treasure system, artifacts for players to find through multiple playthroughs as well an artifact screen where we piece them together. We also spent way too long making an environmental drip effect in the sewer level. Test version should be ready any day now!

I think this is the type of game I could get addicted too. Much like my addiction to desktop dungeons. Procedural generation is so awesome when done right.

Depends on how testing goes, a sideview roguelike presents it's unique challenges. It's completely functional and playable currently, so sooner than later. We just want to react to testing feedback and take a bit of time and do a little bit of polish, including some simple story elements, some meta goals, etc.

Glad you like how it's looking so far, it's been a lot of fun to work on (and working with Sparky is awesome).

Today we implemented the first of the class specific abilities. Thieves now have a unique ability to disarm traps. Traps in this game are integrated into light system. They are initially hidden. Light causes the traps to be revealed, but they are still armed in this state. Once a trap has been revealed, however, the thief can use his ability to render them harmless (hence the band-aid in screen shot 2 above). This is a fairly safe operation, though there is a small failure rate.

One other thing worth noting is that disarming a trap will yield useful resources. Teleport traps, for instance, yield a portable teleport item.

I am also pleased to say that we're ready to begin the first round of testing. We currently have a 6 level build ready, with three partially implemented player classes and a decent number of items and enemies. We'd very much appreciate any feedback you folks can offer us at this early stage. Post here if you're interested in helping out. Cheers!

Oryx totally improved the band-aid sprite since I posted Grin.

Thanks for the interest, everyone. We're happy to have help testing this early build- we will send you all a link to the test build in the very near future. Anyone who doesn't make it into the first round can help out later. (I would hazard a guess that we'll do at least two rounds of testing before release.)

So while you're waiting, here's an update on our progress. Over the past two days we've been trying out a couple more class abilities.

  • Thief-
    As mentioned before, the thief can disarm traps. The thief is skilled at information gathering and has high mobility.
  • Knight-
    The knight is less dependent on items and more self-sufficient than other classes. He has a charge up lightning attack which is excellent for taking down large foes, and which also makes him a bit less vulnerable to status effects.
  • Wizard-
    We're still designing the wizard. One idea is that he might be powerful offensively, but limited by resources.
