[1.0.23] First Aid Kit Update



Hey there,

Here it is at last: the First Aid Kit update. We apologise for the slight delay, but we're hoping you'll enjoy this update for Dungeon of the Endless. The recent changes should improve your overall experience with new resolution options, key binding, small multiplayer improvements (chat in the game over/victory screens, regional filter, cross platform sessions), a first version of an auto-save feature, some balancing, bug fixes and so on.

This update also fixes the issues with the Endless Legend Emperor pack, with the Refreezerator pod and the Kreyang hero.


RELEASE NOTES [1.0.23]

Improvements
  • Unlocked Founder heroes by default: Josh 'Ntello (DotE Founder) and Kreyang (EL Founder/Emperor)
  • Added new resolution system in option panel
  • Added windowed mode in option panel
  • Added ability to rebind keys
  • Added Heroes groups shortcut with Ctrl + 0-9 (therefore allowing you to change your hero hotkeys)
  • Added first version of Auto-Save feature in case of crashes (solo mode) [WIP, doesn’t work if a crash occurs during elevator phase]
  • Added three G2G achievements (also renamed the achievement "Unbeatable Duo" to "Members Only")
  • Enabled cross platform multiplayer (Windows & Mac OS). Lobbies hosted by a player with a different public folder & files (modded version, or different OS) will be shown in gold.
  • Added regional filters in the lobby
  • Added chat in game over and victory panels
  • Added module build cost in the research panel
  • Improved Abandon game confirmation dialog
  • Improved some hero / monster / module animations
  • Improved Merchant on the tactical map (colour shows currency)
  • Improved projectile heights
  • Improved monsters placement to reduce overlapping



Balancing
  • Increased self-destruction Delay of Kamikaze mobs with now a random interval
  • Reduced Kamikaze mobs spawn and zone damages on modules
  • Increased Kamikaze mobs damage zone on other monsters
  • Removed Keeper monster in the Library
  • Changed Pro Modules Stele with multiplicative effect
  • Changed Bad Company skill effect (addition instead of percentage)

Bugfix
  • Fixed Endless Legend Emperor pack unlocks (Kreyang hero and Refreezerator pod)
  • Fixed some issues with items duplicating and Merchant
  • Fixed several issues with multiplayer
  • Fixed several issues with environments and lights (rooms too dark)
  • Fixed disappearance of the crystal carrier in the high score panel
  • Fixed typos in dialogue and localisation keys
  • Fixed Drill pod unlock (required to reach floor 24 and not 25)
  • Fixed Ken not respawning in Refreezerator
  • Fixed hero reappearance after dismissing them
  • Fixed the album resolution in 4:3 (now stretched though)
  • Fixed some issues with singleplayer game save: you can now retrieve it after playing a multiplayer game

Please note several known issues are still being worked on, and those include:
  • The multiplayer issues require a lot of testing
  • The auto-save feature: it's a first version for now and we plan on improving it, but it should prevent save losses in most cases. Piece of advice: remember to save and from time to time restart the game on Steam if you often get crashes. We're still working on the performance as well.
  • Lobbies listed in "gold": in case you want to report an issue, don't forget to mention if you were in this case (modified public folder or cross platform multiplayer)

Have a nice weekend,

“There’s nothing to rank alongside it. Influences and borrowings be damned – it stands alone and is as brilliantly designed, challenging and cunning a package of ideas and aesthetic choices as anything I’ve seen this year.”
Wot I Think – Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“From its setting to its design and aesthetic, Dungeon of the Endless feels like a game built for me. It’s tough and unforgiving, but it’s also fair. Despite all the deaths I spent climbing through the dungeon’s floors, I slowly mastered the game. That’s a testament to the roguelike genre, and it’s why I like tangling with it so much.”
4.5/5 – Game Revolution

“The best Real-Time Turn-Based Strategic 4X Tower Defence Sci-Fi Roguelike RPG hybrid you'll play this week. And easily one of the very best games you'll play this year. Absolutely unmissable.”
9/10 – Dealspwn

DUNGEON OF THE ENDLESS

About This Game

BACKGROUND STORY
A few hundred condemned criminals were being shipped to the Auriga system on board the prison hulk “Success”. While this was presented as a chance to earn back their place in society by working hard for the common good, they understood that in fact they would be slave labour, sent to colonize an unexplored planet. All they knew about Auriga Prime was what the probes told them: it had water, temperate zones, plant life, and plenty of metals in the crust.

In fact, the planet Auriga once hosted a major settlement of the galaxy-travelling ancestors known as the Endless. In addition, the planet was still orbited by a functioning (and well cloaked) defensive system, which sprang eagerly to life upon the arrival of the Success. Within a few minutes, the ship was nothing but a few large chunks of metal falling toward the planet.

Every set of holding cells also functioned as an escape pod, so the ship let itself disintegrate and the surviving prisoners fell bruised but (temporarily) alive and (momentarily) safe to the planet below. Safe, that is, until they realized that they had crashed through some sort of facility of the Endless, down to a sub-basement so deep and ancient it might as well be called a dungeon…

Absolutely awesome game.

Fun, addictive, i had absolutely 0 problem as for the internet when i played multi with a friend and 0 crash problem as i could read (and I wish to add the other game from the endless serie I have never crashed also).

If you like some tower defense mixed with heroes in a new concept as for you open doors, you will absolutely like it.
The design is quite nice too, pixel art/roguelike.

One of my best discoveries this year for sure.

You feel you would like to try ?
Give it a shot, you won't be disapointed. Have fun !

This is:

1. Original (as gameplay and as setting)
2. Fun
3. Posessing great soundtrack
4. Replayable.
5. Fairly challenging.

The only straight bad thing I recall is lack of saves for coop and how coop is organized. Really, coop here is quite rough, so you might wanna get a premade party of friends who have a lot of time to play this in multiplayer. Oh, here's another: story and lore here aren't being told porperly.

Well worth the price (regardless if its on sale or not)

Originally purchased the game with the idea of playing online co-op with friends but quickly found that single player was more enjoyable and beatable (at point of review can't trade items/share research tech).

The game is quite challenging. At first you'll die quite a few times and not know why; but through gaining experience, new heroes, and most importantly a strategy you can win. All in all this is a strategy game despite its many different elements which are combined very well. If you want a strategy game that you can pick up and drop whenever you want (i.e. one sessions can take 2 hours or so to either win or die) than pick it up.

I bought this game while on early access and i was surprised at the frequency of updates i recieved from it! it updated at a faster rate than starbound (then again what game DOESNT update more than starbound?) and within days after buying it, i already started to see results. for a quick TLDR on the game....:

You control a team of inmates, guards, and crewmen that were held within the prison ship entering the orbit of a planet lost to the ages. Unfortunately for everyone on board, the orbital defense systems from the ancient race of aliens came to life and blew the prison ship to bits. one escape pod was shot during the chaos. This is where you come in.

Every dungeon is randomized and you will get a diffferent play through every time which keeps the game fresh and appealing. Probably the coolest thing about the game is that every character in the game (idk about the special ones from the packs) has interactions with other characters. You will know when you find this interaction when the two begin having conversations on the elevator ride to the next floor complete with yellow text and special dialogue. Survive three floors and you get to hear the whole story between the two PLUS they usually buff each other.

Only downside to the game is the multiplayer. Be sure to grab some friends for this one or get alot of single player experience under your belt since i've noticed alot of skilled players handing out rolls and such. make sure you have a basic idea of the game or play with a group of friends for the best possible experience. ALSO and i CANNOT stress this enough: expect your multiplayer game to possibly cut out on you if you get a slight connection disruption. the Servers for the game are still in early stages so it's to be expect. Just be patient with it as the team behind the game fixes problems and glitches very fast.

PROS:
-Fantastic art
-Very immersive sountrack
-A new level of depth and strategy from the tower defense combined with the rpg items
-Enjoyable characters with their own unique stories and personalities. my favorite story between two characters is title "Downfall"! up to you to find who has that story -.o
-action packed wave defenses that will leave you holding your breath in the later floors
-excellent difficulty scaling. if you thought floor one was bad.....heh just make it to the last one and prepare to cry!
-very fluid animations for a 2d pixal art game

CONS:
-the game is in a league of its own thus creating a high learning curve. Stick with the game and it will come to you with practice
-multiplayer service disruptions (this is planned by G2G to be fixed with time)

The fox fur's over all score of the game?

a very well earned 9/10

when they fix those service disruptions, this game will be on my top played list. only reason i havent put more time into this game is that having a job kills alot of that time!

Few hours in; and i got addicted! Interesting enough to keep playing, fun enough to keep thinking about it in your head, tough enough to devise plans on clearing it during free times.. Multiplayer is not fully stabilized yet at the moment. Definitely worth buying.

Super addicting mix of TD, Hero combat, and real-time/turn based strategy. I just wish there were more stats you could view about your results on various ships and such.

I don't see why everyone loves this game as much as they do - it's alright, but certainly not in contention for my game of the year. Levels were repetitive, especially after the first playthrough, and I was disappointed by the options to customize and upgrade characters. There were also (as of Nov 2014) a number of non-game-breaking bugs with the story elements between missions.

Take the best features of every game you have ever played... and put it in one game. That is Dungeon of the Endless. Making it one of the best games this year.

Its a Dungeon crawl, rpg, tower defense, turn based, real time strategy game. Yes thats right, real time and turn based at the same time! How can that be?, well play it and find out.

Overall a good sense of humor and challenging game play. I highly recommend this game.

Totally fantastic, addictive, funny, and beautiful. Dungeon of the Endless has a truly new gameplay style. Roguelike exploration of a generated level creates dynamic paths for tower defence, and the management of room 'power' means you control what rooms you can build towers in, and where enemies will spawn. There's been a ton of work at balancing, meaning that most choices are valid when you decide what modules to research and how you level up your heroes.

I don't have a ton of time for gaming any more, but Dungeon of the Endless has managed to worm its way in and I can't stop!
