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?

Brilliant game, had a load of fun ...got 10 golden keys ... openned large chest... Champion mode unlocked message...game froze completly. Restart game, champion mode not enabled ...what does it do anyway? Kinda frustrating to get to the end but not get the prize.

Hi, I've found the problem and will be uploading a patch tomorrow. The issue is with the champion mode unlocked message only responding to controller input and ignoring the keyboard. It's a stupid mistake. For a temporary workaround, you can open the DiehardDungeon_Progress file (located in Documents \ SavedGames \ DiehardDungeon \ DiehardDungeon_Save \ AllPlayers) with notepad and change the 0 to a 1. This will behave the same as unlocking it normally.

Hiya, any way to zoom the camera out or widen the fov?
Playing with mouse and keyboard is a no go. I'm playing right over the other side of the room on a pad and it's still making me dizzy.
I've tried messing around with cheat engine and throwing a few files into a hex editor and poking around with no luck. Any quick fix for this or is it an option you could add in later updates?

Absolutely love the game but it's making me queasy :D

I'm sorry it's making you feel queasy. I can definitely add an option in to zoom the camera out / widen the view.

That would be absolutely fantastic :D Thanks for the reply.

I was fighting a boss just before and felt totally comfortable on the pad, I noticed that the camera zoomed out and stayed locked at that position during the fight, so maybe just having an option to lock the camera at that maximum zoom would be enough when playing with a pad, but yeah, it'd be great to be able to zoom it out even further when playing with mouse and keyboard.

Absolutely loving the game :D

Can't play this at all... re-installed twice, and game just crashes after the menu dude takes the arrow from the back.

Hi, does it crash after showing the ...Wake up!... message? Does it show an error message? I'm looking into this now.

The first 3 times it crashed right after the blood spatter, before any message. Then I re-installed and it crashed after it showed a "..." message, which is as far as I got

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