Dungeon Prospector is an old-school dungeon crawler/roguelike. You're in infinity dungeons (in length and width) full of monsters and treasures. How far can you go and how long can you survive?

 To all linux users, note: unity3d is optimized for ubuntu, so it may not work on your distribution. There have already been issues with Debian and Xubuntu. So I recommend you try compatibility with the demo first. 

 Right now the game is in alpha stage, receiving updates with new features and content (about one-two per month). At this moment the game has:

- Dungeon generation (Castle and cave theme).
- over 35 items (food/potions/weapons/armor).
- 5 monsters.
- 2 Bosses.
- Rest (similar to hunger).
- Leveling.
- Permadeath.
- Crafting.

Features I'm planning:
- Abilities.
- At least one more dungeon type.
- more monsters.
- more items.

Bosses

One of features we planed from the start. To fight boss you have to find one of red doors pictured below, and open it with Key (by pressing E), which drops from monsters. Also if you have an old save (which I hope still works :| ) , then Unidentified dust should turn into keys.

After you open door, you will be teleported to the boss room. There is no escape until you kill boss. After boss been killed on one side of room will be hall to the two chests filled with rare potions and boss equipment. On the other side is a red door which will return you back where you was. Each red door can be used only once.

Items

Completely new item system. Now items have rarity and will roll random stats, which making every weapon you find unique in some way.

Items rarities are:
Grey - worst possible roll.
White - less than 30% of total possible stats.
Blue - more than 30% and less than 60% of total possible stats, will roll one of player stats (VIT, STR, DEX).
Yellow - more than 60% and less than 96% of total possible stats, will roll two player stats.
Purple - more than 96% and less than 99% of total possible stats, will roll each player stats.
Deep Purple - Best item roll ever.

Here some items and their stats:

Hall of Fame

Basically it's a scoreboard. When you die in game, you stats (steps, kills, time, depth, each boss kills) will be recorded in Hall of Fame.
It is very likely that we change it appearance in next updates.

With this update we going prebeta and in a week or two we will release next update in which we add fourth equipment item, which I hope will change gameplay a little :D

Also in two weeks discount will go from 75% to 50%.

I release update when I have more stuff done for game. There already rats, some basic mechanic of forges. And I also want hall of fame and new type of dungeon before releasing update :D

I hope to release it before the end of the month, but probably it'll take more time.

I think that falling multiple floors is a pretty cool bug, maybe that could be implimented into a trap floor or something?

On floor 6, I found a doorway that led to a BLACK room. I walked in slowly, then FELL. Not like down into a new room, no I fell OUT OF THE MAP. I started slowly falling NEXT to the map, watching the floors drift past me. I drifted onto a floor and then all the monstgers that had FOLLOWED me off the map drifted in and started attacking :) I killed them, barely, then drifted back out and started falling past the map, followed by L-O-T-S of falling, drifting monsters. They finally killed me, as they got tougher with every floor I fell slowly past. It was... amusing.

The numbers after the Skills (Vitality etc) aren't showing up for me. There is a plus sign next to each one i can click after I level up but no number shows how much I have in each skill.

I'm reviewing the game as it stands now. If it gets better I will upgrade my score. Issues: 1 When you go into options then back out it resets the size of your screen to small whether you are windowed or not. 2 The option to set controls does not work and the controls are not mentioned anywhere. For other people: **E** is take web or open chest. When you look at a slime/blob on the floor you get a dotted line at the top of it horizontally. 3 Personal preference but I prefer retro chunky pixel games…
