So, the big idea here is that on the top level you can move sideways (through the doors) and hand off 0-3 of your items to another elf (just like you). Or you can descend into the dungeon.

The dungeon is infinitely deep and there are infintely many side-by-side zones. Monsters do respawn but items and gold don't, so once you clear a level it's never worth coming back. Players have separate inventories and HP but have shared time and gold.

I wish there was music and I wish the sound effects worked better. The game seems to go OK but it has very few frills. I'm kind of sad it ended up feeling a little like a Zelda 1 clone (since I like the Dungeon Relay angle). Didn't have time to implement more of the items/monsters I was excited about.

Only source right now... I will try to port to py2exe and py2app when I have access to those platforms.

The potential is really obvious here - good attempt!

Aww, looks lovely. Please provide a Windows executable!

Unable to evalute Linux-only stuff, but this -looks- cool. Will check back later.

Couldn't get it to run, but I've had problems getting pygame to run on my system in the past. Sorry. :(

This is a good idea and is reasonably well executed despite the unfinished bits. Didn't have any problem getting it to run on Ubuntu. Nice work!

Looks promising, but I only maintain a Linux install at work where I can't play... Generally do my gaming on Windows, so a Windows executable would've been nice :-/
