Sunken Dwellers of Gorgoth - released

Hi all,

(I thought I posted this earlier...but I must have forgotten about it)

Sunken Dwellers of Gorgoth is a roguelike dungeon crawl.

There are eight characters to choose from, a range of items, spells and a few npcs to follow you around and
fight alongside you in the dungeon.

The objective is to get to the 10th level and defeat the monstrous Red Dragon and return to town.  It is very difficult, I have seen two people
get to level 9 and I myself have only gotten to level 8 so far....


There are online scores which show on the front page, and also if you wait long enough replays of previous users will play through in demo mode.


Screenshots are here:

Development details (for those who are interested):



It is written in javascript/html5 with a php/mysql backend for the game data, scoring and replays.

Graphics were sourced from oryx.

I gave it a quick play. It's pretty neat. Although a bit slow moving and the character sprite really should change facing to match the direction the player is traveling. At least for left and right movement.

Also the controls aren't that intuitive for having to use both the mouse and keyboard. I would suggest wasd for movement and left clicking inside the main game window for actions as an alternative to the space bar.

The music is really nice.
