Some might say this is 1995 etc but so far not only in graphics quality does it surpass that but you see things like arrows sticking into walls, falling on the ground, teleport pads, monsters doing stuff they dont even do in the highest MMORPGs today. Im very impressed. Hope I have time to get into the scripts side of this.

Just want to say enjoying the game very much. Some sort of "zoom" feature in window mode and multiplayer would just be brilliant in my humble opinion. Regardless, you reach a full production phase you've got my cash if you ask for it.

Thanks!

PS. The mass of spiders coming out of the trees about caused me to fall off my chair. Take offense and rock everything to death with a sling shot. LOL

On fedora I had to install a good number of the SDL packages so my suggestion is any package, including 32bit and 64bit, with SDL in its name install them. If you tell the system to install them all it should clean up any conflicts.

Once I had the SDL packages installed the game works like a charm and its a very cool rogue game. Im enjoying it quite a bit.

You ever reach a full production etc you've got my cash. One nice feature though might be some sort of zoom, even if fixed, when in window mode.
