XLarn (now of a LT demo?) $-ish
« on: October 25, 2014, 12:17:36 PM »
While still idling in Greenlight:

And maybe   ???  in a more complete form on the iTunes store:

An Eng/Ger LT edition demo-thing was at some point released for Windows/Mac!

As a trial we have made this small version of XLarn available.
This Lite-Version has no expiry date and is fully functional.
Limitations only appear to the amount of levels of diffculty (only 1 instead of 99),
the amount of caverns (max. 10 instead of 20) and the size of the caverns.

XLARN is a heavily eXtended version of the famous roguelike game LARN.

XLARN is the very first implementation of this game with a graphical user interface integrating a tile-based graphics dungeon display.

LARN was written by the late Noah Morgan under UNIX with a textual display and simple ASCII graphics.

Visit this Retrogame, its full of surprises and challenges. Deep down in the Earth, Demonic Temples await you. The countdown will begin as you make your way in search of the only hope your daughter has for recovery. She has fallen gravely sick and the villagers all say that her only chance is an elixir found somewhere in the deepest temples underground. A home to demons and other unknown horrific monsters, these “Demonic Temples” can only be accessed through a dead volcano. You must first navigate through an intricate cave system, developing yourself and your skills as you go. Unknown dangers are sure to already be awaiting you there. Use the resources of your village to help you on your mission. Shop at the stores, visit the school or the bank. They all have something to offer. You will need all of the resources that you can find to successfully explore past the caves and reach the medicine down below. The Demonic Temples will have no mercy, so prepare yourself on the way.
Be ready for a surprise if you want to make a level again, because it will never be the same.
