Another year and another version. 1.06 should become available in about a day or so featuring new overlay tileset, new boss level with lots of tentacles, new creatures to tackle, minor survivability buff for low level characters in the form of snails (lots of them), heritage dog and an in-game level editor.

Just have to say I still play and love this game. Even got a friend addicted to this game he calls 'The most horrid and hard to play game' he has ever played. Granted he keeps playing it! xD

Very addictive. Only wondering if there is an expansion or more another update coming any time in the near future.

Sword of the Stars: The Pit (another Rouge like game). It plays like: OMG! I'm out of bullets! OMG! There's so many of them! OMG! I'm DEAD!
And Jax.... that IS the idea of a Rogue type game; to be hard and to die in unfair, untimely, and unforgiving ways. The lure of the game is to see how much further you can get 'this time'.

1.06 is being worked on and it will be the largest update so far. Timewise maybe 10 to 12 weeks if all goes smooth.

Just a bit of friendly advice, if you want to sell more copies of your game you should seriously think about adding an easy option!

Not only would it help new players to this type of game but it would give them a chance to learn the basics quicker and then play it more prepared for the normal level. There is one game that did it this way called DarysLegend and it works out quite well :)

You know what would be awesome?
If I had friends. Because if I had friends, I would be like, "Hey bro, I need a favor.. can you gift me a copy of Rogues Tale?"

And this friend would be all like, "Heeeeeellll yeah bro."
That would be awesome.

Highest Rated (6 agree) 10/10

Yes, rated a 10. Now, before you act like "GRASPEE SAYS", and start throwing a fit about it being a difficult game at the start... DUH... it's a Roguelike!!! Please don't get me wrong, there are times when you start a new game, where your heart sinks because you just KNOW that the snake (who is 3 squares away) AND the Archer standing next to it, is going to make a quick end to your game... only to be ecstatic that you barely squeaked by. There will be times, while walking down a corridor, you spot…

Lowest Rated (4 agree) 5/10

This game is not well-balanced with respect to the difficulty the player experiences as the game goes in. Basically it seems there is too much randomness and not enough procedural stuff going on in the design of levels. As others have pointed out, you can start out surrounded by three enemies. Also you can start out in a room with multiple locked doors to get out and it is boring as hell battering yourself on the doors and losing most of your hp, then resting for tedious amounts of time until the…
