Claustrophobia: The Downward Struggle is an indie RPG roguelike, with a retro graphic style and a terrible sense of humour. The game takes place in a series of ever descending randomly generated dungeon floors, packed full of monsters to slaughter and loot to pillage. The game plays like a traditional roguelike, but with a clean UI, a slick, action orientated combat system, and a massive range of enemy types, skills, gear and room designs. With features like crafting, skill trees, characters development, and just-one-more-room style gameplay, Claustrophobia is a love letter to traditional RPG rougelikes. Create your ideal hero, build your own custom class, then set out on your quest for glory, slaughter, and anything shiny!

So, I kill an enemy in a doorway and they drop an item. When i click on the item to pick it up the door closes as well. Not a huge bug but it's still there. Sorry if someone else has mentioned this before, I shall continue my adventures. Looking forward to the 2nd area in the dungeon! =D

Also, while I'm here. Is there going to be a crafting guide in the future? It's seemingly trial and error right now.

What you actually craft is a random item of the type which the materials enter makes. For example, 1 wood and 2 metal bars will make a new random sword of rariety equal to the rariety of the metal used. I could make a guide with all the set recipes, but I think it would be better if the player finds the main recipes themselves, as the crafted result is a risk anyway.

Just started level next to the Vampire boss, normally not an issue except his door was not marked as gold, thought it was a normal room opened it and died, not sure if the is on purpose or a bug, luckily I just started so it didnt matter. Would have sucked if I was farther along though.

This is a rare bug that I'm aware of, it happens when a corridor connects to a boss room, rather than a normal door. For now you can avoid the boss by closing doors again. I'll get this sorted soon.
