I've been improving the shop and inventory menus a bit. I should've definitely done this earlier:

  • It's possible to use return when in inventory; switch between items / equipment menus instead of closing inventory and choosing again either items or equipment and wasting a turn in combat
  • It's possible to use return when selling items; switch between items / equipment menus instead of closing shop and choosing again either items or equipment
  • Buying or selling an item returns to the main menu of the shop instead of closing the shop and returning to the game

Nice improvements!

I haven't got very far in the game yet but I'm enjoying it.

I'm actually surprised how much I've got positive feedback since this is the first time ever I'm programming anything like this. Also noticed someone on reddit mentioning my game. I like that  :)

Hey Aukustus, I just want to say that I'm currently lacking the needed time to resume my work for you regarding the editor and the requested tiles; I'm also having trouble using Skype at my work.

About the stone of recall, how do you envision it?
Is it a large stone or something you would use in a necklace?
Do you want it to have a certain shape or you want me to simply use my imagination?
I was thinking of having the stone emanating a some kind of glow, what do you think?
How many Stones of Recall there will be? I can make each one unique if there aren't that many.

Hello

1. Something like Diablo's waypoints, maybe with a rock standing on Diablo type waypoint
2. Large stone, sort of monolith type
3. As above
4. Sounds good, some minor glow.
5. There are five but I think that single tile for all is better because it's more recognizable.

Ah! For some reason I always thought of recall stones in your game as something you could have in your inventory (don't ask); so we are talking about re-spawning points. Ok, I think now I know exactly how to draw it.

Yeah. It's the thing at boss areas and inside the temple at Undershire.

Hey I was just testing the game, I guess you also noticed Marwal's dark tile :).
Anyway the game is looking REALLY nice! I very proud of being part of it!

I want to mention that I enjoy the smooth use of projectiles/spells in this game. F to aim and space to confirm is so easy to use compared to the convoluted shooting mechanisms in some roguelikes.

Yep. I wanted to make it extremely fast to use in combat. Players can hold movement keys down and melee attack extremely fast, so why not do the same for ranged combat? Pressing f or s plus space rapidly works in my opinion.

 I dislike the use of tens of keys, such as nethack has like all keys on keyboard plus the same with shift or control combination and so on.
