Long ago, the Dark Lord Dredmor was bound in the darkest dungeons beneath the earth by great and mighty heroes. Centuries later, the magical bonds that hold him in place are loosening and his power grows ever stronger. The land cries out for a new hero, a powerful warrior or a mystic wizard like those spoken of in the prophecies of yore. What they have, unfortunately, is you. Step into the Dungeons of Dredmor! Embrace your destiny! Face evil of the likes the world has never known - the terrifying Swarmies, the undulating Thrusties, and the adoreable nest-building Diggles. Wield shoes decorated by the Dwarven Glittersmiths, all of whom have now committed suicide because of their shame, and embrace the joys of destroying giant moustache-wielding brick demons with a mace decorated with tawdry, delicious bacon. While you’re at it, be prepared to die. A lot. In hideous, screaming pain that makes you throw your keyboard out the window. The Dungeons await. Are you ready for them?

Looks great and a the Linux build too - cool :D

Question: can you move diagonally? As cool as the game looks I feel "claustrophobic" if I can't move diagonally (as odd as that sounds - kinda like how playing Doom where you can't look up/down makes you feel limited).

May I ask what you used to develop this? C++ and OpenGL? What software did you use to make the graphics?

Super quick answer for a super old question: This was coded in C++ using SDL, custom engine. I made the graphics using Photoshop for the most part, though some of the monster sprites were drawn by artists using some other software.

Thanks Fib! I'll try to fill this page out better as I go along and keep it updated with new screenshots to show off, but it's probably most important that I concentrate on finishing the game :)

Brilliant Rogue-like for the modern era.

As a rougelike it's a great game, one of the better ones out there. The humor is top notch and the system is well refined. I like the movement with the wasd keys. One of the larger stumbling blocks in others are the obtuse keyboard controls. There are some troubles with the isometric view as it might be hard to tell where you are in relation to objects behind others. The crafting element also makes the game fun. as a program it's a bit lack luster. it's technically multi-platform as it has windows…
