It is done!

What is this?
This is a rogue-like game with randomly generated levels and items.

- WASD/ArrowKeys to move
- Left click to attack
- Space to skip a turn
- I for Inventory
- C for Character Stats
- M/Tab for Map

level up, gear up, go down and kill "it" - that simple!

Special Thanks to Jessartisan and Tankertype!

Note: game source needs NGUI to run!

Nice little roguelike! I'm impressed, I really like the item hover popup system like from WoW. Took me a while to figure out that walking into someone doesnt attack them though, you might want to implement that for roguelike players like myself that may expect it!

Thanks @minism! Attacking by walking into them sounds good. I actually don't have much experience with roguelike games, so i'm surprised i felt the urge to make one this weekend. So getting tips like this are much appreciated! :D

Very interesting game, impressive that you got a roguelike structure going in just 48 hours. Graphics are charmingly minimalist, I like it.

Theme felt very shoehorned. Seems very easy to become overpowered, but it's still fun to lay waste to enemies.

So many windows, but the concept is good, you need to write a better tutorial!

Pretty cool game and very much features. I didn't understand the inventory though (I could wear some items, but some other items not)

Speed is OP stat, especially when combined with the XekeDeath weapon...! 6 attacks at 66 damage each... :D Played it through twice, Needs New Game+ so I can make use of my epic OP gear from defeating the boss...

Fun game and good UI, but it was larger than my laptops screen, so I had to change computers to play it.

Pretty generic roguelike, but actually surprisingly fun to play. Spent a good 20 mins on it

Really fun. A bit unbalanced. Speed/sight/range are preettty overpowered.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
