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.

1.05 is "out" but the version that Desura app launches is porked. Please use the standalone version until it is fixed.

Nibbe I purchased this game in the Hellish Dungeons Bundle - but the key I have isn't fitting into the registration slot? I remember in the demo version I had (maybe beta? not sure) I was able to chat and see people talking and that was a really cool feature.

Do I need to register? And how do I see people talking like before?

This game is awesome and has been greatly improved since I played just a few months ago.

OK I needed to actually set it to log into the EPIXX server on the start screen. Now I am able to talk to folks with the G key. There is also no reason for me to register the game as that appears to be a function of purchasing it directly from the developer.

Nice, I managed to lock myself in a Prison Cell:

For those wondering how I managed that, I was wondering what would happen exactly if I activated the Gate Mechanism while I was standing on the gate. Apparently it damages/kills you, since my character did a reflex save and jumped back, into the cell. I should note that after hundreds of games, that was the only time I had a reflex save.

The difference is that the level cap is 20 instead of 10, you can learn 6 talents instead of 3 and the game becomes harder at around level 12 when the enemies learn new talents (demo is kind of an easy mode). In addition, some challenges are either almost impossible or impossible to complete in the demo.

As for the Steam part, the progress there seems so slow that the Sun will probably go nova before the green monster standing on the way is defeated. Having said that, I suppose I could make a promise that "if" it gets there and "if" Steam still allows handing over keys at that time, I can throw them to whomever has bought the game here.

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…
