Claustrophobia: The Downward Struggle is an indie RPG roguelike, with a retro graphic style and a terrible sense of humour. The game takes place in a series of ever descending randomly generated dungeon floors, packed full of monsters to slaughter and loot to pillage. The game plays like a traditional roguelike, but with a clean UI, a slick, action orientated combat system, and a massive range of enemy types, skills, gear and room designs. With features like crafting, skill trees, characters development, and just-one-more-room style gameplay, Claustrophobia is a love letter to traditional RPG rougelikes. Create your ideal hero, build your own custom class, then set out on your quest for glory, slaughter, and anything shiny!

Hey guys, if someone has a quick fix, i could use some support. I have researched the problem a little. I installed the game, but when i launch it, it never actually launches. I get the little circle next to the mouse, but the game doesn't actually run.

I am encountering the same issue. No error message, running as administrator does not work and Windows Media Player is currently installed. I am on a Windows 7 machine.
