Today I released MidBoss (v0.5 beta), because stuff might still change and/or break) as a feature complete game. It’s an overhauled, rebalanced version of my LD25 game, and my January entry for One Game a Month.

MidBoss is a game about possessing your defeated enemies in order to become stronger. You play the weakest of the dungeon denizens, an imp with no ability other than possessing other creatures. Your goal is to defeat and possess increasingly stronger creatures, unlocking their abilities for yourself and becoming stronger as you go along, and eventually defeat and become the dungeon’s ultimate endboss.

Features now include:

  • Possess your enemy and gain their strengths and skills
  • Dynamic music system with more frenetic music to accompany action
  • Line of sight and fog of war systems
  • A total of 15 monsters to defeat and 10 skills to unlock
  • Randomly generated dungeon floors
  • Single-file save and resume
  • Permanent death, if you die your save is gone (save-scumming is available)
  • Full options menu including key rebinding

If you like it or have feedback, feel free to leave comments here or let me known on Twitter @enichan. Also in case anyone’s curious, here’s my 1GAM profile.
