Forays into Norrendrin 0.6.2 - Improved UI!
« on: July 14, 2012, 05:42:18 AM »
Hello, everyone.  I've just released Forays 0.6.2. If you haven't played since 0.6.0, major changes are listed below.
If you haven't played at all: It's a 20-level dungeon crawl with skill-based advancement, rather than class- or item- based.

0.6.1 improved the list of spells, making them overall cooler and more useful, as well as replacing and improving a handful of feats, and adding a few new items.

0.6.2 focuses on the interface; adding automatic stair travel, the occasionally-controversial autoexplore, improved targeting, expansion of the message window, and a general reworking of the key commands for ease of use.

(On the horizon: light and shadow will play a much bigger role in exploration and combat, with new monsters and dungeon features to support this.)


As always, it's available for Windows and Linux(requiring Mono 2.10). Check it out here:

YES!  I was hoping dev on this was ongoing as it sounded very promising back at the 0.6 release.   Thanks for all the hard work and keep at it!   8)

Your screenshots page is broken though and it would be ideal if the update would be reflected on the main page so more folks could discover it.

Thanks! I've fixed the screenshot link and updated the new releases on the front page.
