The Curse Of Yendor (Windows, Android Beta)
« on: September 15, 2016, 03:07:14 PM »
Ok, it's been a few months since the original post here, and now...

"Curse of Yendor" is available on Steam!

It's a (mostly-)classical roguelike with terrain deformation, highly tactical combat, and mini-quests as its main themes.

The game is feature-complete, crash free, and winnable (and losable).


Here are some screenshots:



...and the mobile version...

Hi, Aleksanderus ,

Glad you like the look of it.

Please note that the 2-week time-limited android beta is free. It will stop working October 1st.
It will be a paid app.

The lifetime PC version is currently $3.99 , and will increase in price upon full release.
It will also have more features than currently available.

Hi, Getter, Thanks for the constant encouragement throughout the years!
I will do something special for ARRP ;)

...

They have a website now to end the "roguelike" argument LOL: http://bp.io/howroguelike/

Here's results for "Curse":



(To be fair, I checked "keyboard only" , which you can absolutely do, including vi, but you can also play conveniently with the mouse)

The feedback I am most interested in is "ease of use" concerns:
are the buttons well laid out for your mobile device?
are they responsive?
would you prefer some different control scheme?
etc.

I've already gotten lots of good notes from a previous closed PC beta, and I'm in the process of taking the game to the proverbial "next level" :)

Why does the Android ver require full network & internet permissions? Is there a leaderboard or something?

Hi, Lord_Mork, thanks for taking a look.

It does not technically need those permissions. it does not form any kind of internet connection at all. It's just some default options i compiled with.

That being said , it might be nice in the future to have some sort of leaderboards. most gold, most damage with a war hammer, most damage with fireballs, most trees burned, etc.

Players definitely have some influence, especially at this point in development.

The beta is coming along nicely, and I am implementing player feedback. The next version is scheduled for October 1st.

Here are some recent screenshots:

A lot has happened with the curse of yendor the past month

For one thing I'm writing this with  speech-to-text software cause I broke my elbow . That's really slowing things down

On October 21st curse of yendor was the subject of the Rogue like dev feedback Friday. I got a lot of good Insight from roguelike players and have made some changes and put things on my to-do such as a Mac and Linux build

Lots of new features have been implemented and the game will be coming to steam green light soon . there aren't enough roguelikes on Steam so when the time comes please vote Yes

If you haven't played curse of yendor yet there is a free demo available for PC and the Android beta is back for a limited time

As stated above,
Curse of Yendor is now in Steam Greenlight.

I know we all think there aren't enough actual roguelikes on steam, so please take a minute and vote for this one!

The graphical update is (mostly) complete, the beta tests are done, the Android and Amazon versions have been released, the free demo is available, and it just needs your 'yes' votes!

I'm finding that Curse of Yendor works particularly well on Android. The streamlined interface lends itself to mobile play, I think.

Hey, hi, thanks a lot! Glad you are playing. Sorry it took me over a month to get back to this thread...

"ease of use" was always a major design point for this game (and my previous RL), so glad to hear it's working :)

And the game is Greenlit now, so it will be coming to steam in Q1 2017.

OK, this game is no longer in the "Early Dev" category. Where do I put it after today?
