Bargains is based on HTML5, so you can play it online here. It's very much under development, so things will change a lot.

Controls: WASD to move, IJKL to punch, 1 or 2 to switch spells and spacebar to use magic.

We've started working on Bargains again this weekend, and to start out with, we wanted to fix up a whole lot of minor visual bugs: bad text rendering, flickering shadows and gaps between tiles, and some corner cases in the line of sight calculations. (Ho, ho. Pun. Corner cases.)

The combined result of these fixes have made the game look vastly better. Compare this new screenshot:

with this old one:

We've also added a minimap in the top right, which is both handy and another thing that you'll be able to sacrifice in exchange for magical powers. (The main mechanic in Bargains is that you can swap abilities like sight range for magical spells.)

Now we've made all of these changes, we're really fired up to add lots of cool new stuff that will take advantage of them. (Monsters! Spells! Horrible dark gods!)

We've added a whole bunch of new things: equipment, potions and the chance to lose your sight in exchange for magic.
