Hi everyone!



I'm the author of new roguelike game - Ignite. The game is still in a early stage of development, but it's now available for public test. The development goal is to make an interesting game with high replay value and randomness.

Ignite is currently developing. I’m trying to make it better every day. Current public version is 0.02 (31th may 2011). Next public version (0.03) will be available at first week of july.

Features of current version
  • fantasy setting
  • orc warrior as preselected character
  • 5+ playable levels of dungeon
  • 2 fractions of hostile npc
  • 15 + types of items with random generation
  • 9 talents to learn
  • simple interface with mouse and hotkeys
  • tile graphic

System requirements
Currently game can be run on Windows with net framework 4.0 installed.
Trying to run it on linux (Open Suse and Ubuntu).

Hey man this was fun to play, keep up the good work. The only thing is that I wished there was a way to play this on linux, which is my primary machine.

On man it will be so nice to have this on my dev workstation, so I can play it while taking a break from my own project (instead of rebooting into windows, which i never do except to play games that don't run in linux).  Let me know where I can post bugs so I can help you improve your game as I play it. I can also periodically post them here if you want.

Wow... looking much different now, and much better :)

Are you getting a lot of performance issues with a smooth/dynamic lighting system like that?
