OK, despite being in the middle of studies, I'm putting out a new build. Why? Because Sheldon Ketterer aka Cow made a new tileset for me. Take a look at his awesome work for my game here:

I've had a lot of time to work on this game over the last 2 days (staying home with a bad cold), so put together a quick new build that fixes some crucial bugs and changes some stats. Also the LOS and FOV algorithms should be much more reliable now.

Download alpha 0.902 here:

Code: [Select]
-Fixed a severe bug with the tomb menu
-Fixed bug where merchant menu would be displayed incorrectly
-Line of sight and field of view algorithms should be more reliable now

-Increased effect of last action on block/dodge chances
-Reduced phantom spawn probability
-Made most armor heavier
-Gave certain monsters higher knockback resistance

-Updated some info in the manual

EDIT: Doublepost, oops.

What am I supposed to be doing here?

Check the manual  ;)

Moving increases your chance to dodge, especially when running, and waiting lowers it.

Waiting gives you a bonus to your block chance, attacking or moving reduces it.

If you want to avoid stamina damage, you can LOWER your shield (given you have one equipped) using the "s" key.

Game is very unbalanced at the moment though, so these things probably don't have the intended impact. I haven't been doing much balancing in the last couple builds. That's all going to be done in the slow crawl from 0.9 to 1.0.

Hey! It's been a while, but I've just released version 0.9

The main additions here are a tomb (morgue) function and the phantoms of your dead characters coming back to haunt you. There are content additions and some mechanics changes as well.

-Added player phantoms and tomb file
-New boss
-New NPCs
-New items
-Item descriptions (partially done)

-Spell castings are now refreshed at altars
-Included option to automatically sort equipment
-"e" key now displays equipment
-Changed default UI font from Lucida Console to Verdana
-Weapon weight doesn't factor into knockback resistance anymore (only armor weight)
-Knockback now stuns for 1 more turn
-Increased poison duration
-Monster hearing radius now partially depends on the player's armor weight
-Heavy armor slightly reduces dodge chance
-Made Esc suspend the game

-Player is now in the center of the screen at all times
-Fixed bug concerning player line of sight
-Fixed a UI bug concerning memorizing spells
-Fixed an issue with displaying item stacks in lookmode
-Stats are now correctly calculated when unequipping an item
-Fixed an issue with displaying weapon magic requirements in inventory screen
-Other fixes


Couldn't reproduce that error, unfortunately. Can you remember exactly what item it was you were trying to equip?

The university work just keeps piling up and it'll be a while until 0.9 gets released, so to ease the wait, I decided to release another intermediate version. 0.86 has some of the content planned for 0.9 and a few bugfixes and tweaks.
