Looking very good!

Like a true good old dungeon crawler without the grid like mouvements!
Look very promising

Add a couples more feature and I'll buy it

I noticed more lag with this patch. The movement is now a little gittery. Still playable, but annoying.

GeForce 9600 GT, AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+, 2 GB RAM.

The previous version was very smooth. This patch brought some gittery in frame rate.

The player is actually a skeleton himself! Plot twist! XP

Anyway, be careful with the blur effect. It can ruin the whole experience if done incorrectly.

From this video it looks like you have to rely more on 'magic'then 'might'. i hope in the final game duking it out toe to toe is still a viable option. Still, looks damn awesome.

AI can run in the next patch. It makes things a little more hectic.
