FACE THE UNKNOWN AND SAVE THE WORLD!

In claustrophobic, puzzle-riddled, dangerous mazes, surrounded by countless enemies, you hunt the Evil Masters down with the purpose of eliminating them and the pain they brought. Determination, concentration, and quick reflexes will be your only allies in your desperate quest...


WHAT IS THIS?

BOH is a dungeon crawler where you need to solve puzzles, collect items, open passages, avoid traps, kill the Evil Mastersand the creatures they generate endlessly, and ultimately come out of the mazes in one piece. Keep cool, avoid the enemies as much as possible, focus on the labyrinths, and eventually you'll make it to the end.

BOH, thanks to its unique aspect and gameplay, is an immersive experience that makes you feel as if you were actually lost in those treacherous dungeons.

You can play any (unlocked) mission any time, and you can also decide how they look and sound by choosing freely one of the several themes available...

... not to mention that, if you're the creative type, you can even create your own missions and themes (!) thanks to the developer's manual, which provides all the information needed.

And once you're done dispatching the baddies, you can also see how you fare against the other players in the world by submitting your records to the online standings!

THE SAGA

BOH is part of a little saga that includes four totally different games.
The Evil Masters started bringing chaos to Earth in BOH.
In Huenison, the fight continued against just the eponymous character.
Eventually they were all repelled from Earth, but, as seen in QUOD INIT EXIT IIm, during their retreat, Huenison and his companions happened to pass by planet Suinio and decided to cause trouble there as well.
MAH shows that, even years later, their memory still lives on in the aspect of the virtual guards.

Are there any fansites out there? Seeing that BOH was pretty much designed with user made levels and themes in mind, i don't understand why there isn't much of a community out there. I would love to download some usermade stuff...
(Don't get me wrong, BOH comes with a lot of content- but it would be nice to see what the fanbase can do with the tools you provide.)

You're perfectly right: I designed BOH with user-made content in mind. Unfortunately, few have showed interest in creating content. I think the most impressive input I got was from an Amiga user who created an online level editor (see Amiga.org), although he didn't have the possibility of finishing/updating it.
As for your initial question: as far as I know, there are no fansites - BOH is too much out of this world and hype-less ;)

Never heard of this game, there are only one or two videos of it on youtube and even on greater gamingforums like "neogaf", nobody talks about BOH. How come?

I found BOH to be surprisingly fun! Hope you can earn some money on it saimo.

Hey, Fennrick, thanks for the nice wish!
I'm glad you discovered BOH and that you're enjoying it - and with the upcoming update you'll enjoying it even more (it was planned to be released much earlier, but real life got into the way...)!
If you deem BOH worth to be talked about, feel free to mention it here, on Facebook (BTW: Facebook.com), Twitter, gaming forums, among real friends, wherever you please ;)

Game looks/plays great (for the intended style :D) but really needs a strafe key (got annoyed having to rotate all the time).

Thanks for the compliments :)
As for strafing, it's missing for a design choice - please refer to the FAQ on the website (http://www.bohthegame.com/faq.html) for a comprehensive explanation.

So now that Desura's Linux support is in place I finally bought a copy...seems like the missions are missing though. The only entries in the game menu are the options and exit buttons.

I have discovered the problem: by mistake the missions from the demo version, which are not compatible, have been included in the build.
Again, I'll ask them to fix the problem, but still send me an email, so that I can provide you with the correct mission files.

Hey, thanks for keeping your word! :)
I'm sorry to hear that. I have no idea of what might have happened, since I just provided the archive to the administrators and I can't even test the build (I don't have a Linux machine at the moment). I'll inform them about the problem, so it gets fixed.
In the meanwhile, can you please send me an email to support@bohthegame.com? I'll provide you directly with a working copy.
