Does this have a random dungeon generator? I'm pretty disappointed that NO console ARPG has one of those. That's the only reason I ever invested money in those games.

Right of the bat, no random dungeon generator. We doesn't really see ourselves as a dungeon crawler, and we want every map to be painstakingly designed and non-random, to allow for time trial competitions, like those in many racing games.

Yeah we've since pulled the demo, as we've included beta access in a Kickstarter Tier. We didn't want the people who supported the game for access, to feel that they were cheated, as there was a free version available on the net.
