Combining its own unique take on the real-time roguelike genre, with a nostalgic 16-bit look and feel; Diehard Dungeon is a game that feels both familiar and quite different at the same time, "occupying a curious middle ground between The Legend of Zelda and The Binding of Isaac". [Edge online 2012] Followed by a trusty, treasure collecting companion chest, the player must make their way through the dungeons many randomly-generated rooms and levels. Armed with a sword and a ‘hand cannon’, all manner of nasty dungeon dwellers, bosses and traps will need to be defeated or traversed in order to emerge from the dungeon victorious! To aid them in their quest, the player may be lucky enough to encounter one or more upgrades, or new abilities, scattered throughout the dungeon. A randomly generated dungeon is created every playthrough. Discover the dungeons many secrets and multiple outcomes. Do you have what it takes to survive the dungeon?

Thanks! There definitely seems to be an issue with high resolution monitors and the in-game scaling. As soon as I've fixed the problem, I'll upload a patch.

Hi, I'm looking into a few different ways of supporting non-qwerty layouts. Either re-binding keys, or switching between different layouts in the options menu. It's definitely something that will be patched in.

Hello there :D
I saw your game a while back and wanted to play it badly. Now that I bought it in the Bundle (The only game I wanted to be honest) it seems to crash when I launch the game ;_;
I'm running an SLI rig. Might that be the problem? :(

Yeah, I try to start either dungeons or champions and when it is supposed to start rendering the game, it crashes. I turned off SLI and it still had the problem so that wasn't it. yet when I went window mode it started working. Seems my resolution might be causing the problem cause I play at 2560x1440 lol. Maybe you can check it out so I can full screen this beauty plz and thanks? :3

I'll look into the problem. So the game was displaying ok in fullscreen until you tried to start a new game? The main menu looked ok? Could you try changing your desktop resolution to something lower like 1920 * 1080 and then trying to play in fullscreen again?
Just trying to isolate the problem.

Fantastic dungeon crawler. Love the graphics and gameplay. Gamepad support is also a HUGE bonus!
