The Game

Adventure Dungeon 2: Faron's Fate is an action- roguelike about a lone adventurer venturing into a dungeon full of dangerous monsters and rare artifacts. Enter a procedurally generated dungeon, fight for your life, and collect weapons, loot, and armor along the way. By combining components of The Binding of Isaac and The Legend of Zelda with classic RPG elements, Faron's Fate creates a unique action- packed experience where no two playthroughs are alike.

Key Features

    Over 200+ Unique items, weapons, armor, and magic spells!
    50+ Monsters and enemies to fight!
    Classic RPG elements - Detailed stats and armor with powerful full- set bonuses!
    Arcade- style gameplay - all content is unlocked from the start!
    Integrated controller support for all popular gamepads!
    Dynamic lighting and fancy visual effects
    Seeded Runs - play in the same dungeon as your friends for an even playing field in determining who's the very best!
    Three special challenge modes for seasoned players- Infinite Run, Boss Rush, and Time Attack!
    Packed with secrets and rare content!

Last mini-beta v7.0 prior to release mysteriously featured at least:

Quote
    Secret Rooms
    New menu music
    New items
    Tons of other stuff!

Here's to a hopefully good future ahead of this taking on the likes of Binding of Isaac's core experience and putting a different spin on things.  I think this may well be just about the first project to reach this level of sophistication thus far due to powering through the beta phase!   8)

v1.2

The mechanic of fighting the ghosts of your past runs was something I has a long time ago, back when I was prototyping different types of minibosses for the game. The idea was that if you picked up the power glove, you'd have a chance to fight a ghost Faron carrying a power glove in future runs. However, due to time constraints near release, ghosts were were rushed.
This patch finally makes ghosts fun to fight in my opinion. They've been re-balanced and re-coded to be smarter, telegraph their attacks better, and actually drop the weapons they use when you kill them. To celebrate the bigger, better ghosts, I've increased the spawn rate of ghosts and added a new Ghost Buster! achievement. Enjoy!

Changelog:
Added more ghost archetypes
Improved ghost AI
New achievement: Ghost Buster!
Added variance to the layout of ghost rooms
Added a new ghost-themed item: Jar of Souls!
More ghost spawns!
Fixed ghosts not being consistent among seeds
Gave the Time Attack challenge mode a bit of rebalancing. Give it another shot and try to get that achievement!

Hey, everyone! Thanks for the outstanding support I've gotten on Faron's Fate so far! Though the game's player base is still small, the reactions of people who have played has been overwhelmingly positive.

I was test playing through the other day and thought of some things that would make the game a lot more fun and balanced. Though I'm focusing most of my time on my next project, I want to make sure that Faron's Fate is stable and fun!

Changelog:
Changes to the Ouija Board! Previously, the item increased the chances of you fighting a ghost of your previous runs, and also gave +1 damage. I didn't like how the item acted, so now, instead of a flat +1 damage upon picking up the item, you'll actually gain +1 damage for every ghost you kill!
Improvements to the Wishing Well! Visual indicators for how full the well is (yes, it is saved between runs) and you can now bomb the well if you need gold!
Rebalanced Time Attack mode (again). You'll now start with Yorick's Curse, which gives you +1 damage every floor!
Rebalanced the Altar of Fate.
Lowered the spawn rate of player ghosts slightly
Fixed a crash with the lazer eye item, it's usable again!
Various bugfixes
