Triangle Wizard!

What in the world....how do I keep missing that these types of things have been out for so long?  This seems like a front page contender for that recent happenings article as worthy as Spelunky at some point Slash.

I mean, this is utterly staggering in some respects...

This looks like it could be really cool!  I'm gonna give it a try asap.  Thanks for the info, getter.

Edit:  Alright, I've played through a character in this.  It's pretty interesting, and I'd recommend giving it a try.  It has a lot in common with Diablo, but the emphasis is strongly on magic, and all items (excluding health potions) are permanent upgrades to some character trait, usually their ability to cast a spell. 

The biggest problem I've had so far is dealing with flying enemies without the ability to cast magic missile.  With my first character I was able to get to the first boss, who promptly destroyed me with his high speed and attack power.  Give it a shot!

For Flying folk without magic missile, you can use the likes of Evaporate, Chain Lightning, and various other damaging Invocation spells.   You can also use Entanglement to bring them down to the ground...or thusly drown them in water/lava...

This game has probably the most thrilling Ascension/Death system I'd ever seen in a Roguelike....with the Shop system being one of the absolute best as well.  Fans of the Stone Soup Death System should ESPECIALLY get a kick out of it as it somewhat resembles it while going faaar beyond it in some major ways.

I've made it to the second boss one time now, and can usually make it to the first boss and win...usually.

Definitely hop over to the gamepage's forum and unload comments, bug reports, etc so the game can improve thusly.   The reason the current greats became great is largely due to the many people that contributed on such matters.

Do we know how long this is?  I killed the third boss and made it to level 22.

107 floors...with some shop stuff possible that may or may not count towards it.

At least, so far...

BIG in othe words.

Good job on making it to the third boss.  The only reason I made it to the 2nd and won was due to a singular and first encounter with the above mentioned Death system....t'was sheer madness.  And even that was playing the game in an unintended manner as a pure Melee character!
