Balance and bugfix update - v1.1

This small update fixes the Throw bug, makes Despair mode slightly easier, and the end game slightly harder.

  • Critical hits from enemies reduced by 20% in DESPAIR mode. Before this change, DESPAIR was clearly impossible (now it's just unclearly impossible)
  • Keyboard selection on the Disguise menu now scrolls the page too
  • Fixed a game locking bug when a monster was thrown into a second monster
  • The final Mausoleum chamber now has water surrounding the gear rooms
  • Enemies standing in fire/water no longer accept their fate and wait to die
  • List of monsters available during Delusion has been dramatically increased. Now you can, for instance, hop around as a plant
  • Ammo has been reduced slightly
  • Damage reduction from the 3rd and 4th resistance levels has been nerfed. This makes Ward and rings less overpowered
  • Memento Mori Ring bonus damage reduced from 5 to 3
  • Poison Ring bonus damage reduced
  • Fixed the workings of Statue form, which previously let you become easily immune when combined with rings
  • Corrected the behavior of WARD and the display of the Resistance status
  • Several spelling mistakes corrected
  • Fixed the numbering on Portals leading further into the Underworld

About This Game

Golden Krone Hotel is a gothic horror roguelike. Fight vampires with sunlight or become a vampire yourself and sneak in the shadows.

Your mission

You play as Sorina Arobase, a human general made famous for hunting vampires. You're on a mission of revenge to kill Fane, the exiled vampire prince. Armed with your sword, revolver, and spell book, you must battle hordes of blood sucking foes. But first you'll be picking one of 12 disguises that will help you on your journey.


  • It's a roguelike, really! Turn-based combat, permadeath, and tough as nails gameplay
  • Fully dynamic lighting. Use sunlight as a weapon or snuff out torches to conceal yourself
  • A groundbreaking potion identification system that encourages risk taking
  • Each run requires you to play as both human and vampire, each with different strengths and weaknesses. Humans are frail spellcasters. Vampires are brawlers with super human speed and strength.
  • Leaderboards and shareable morgue files
  • Original soundtrack by Christopher Loza


  • 10 floors, 9 branches, and 8 bosses
  • Dozens of unique monsters
  • 40 potions
  • 21 spells
  • 12 classes

Play your way

  • Select tiles or ASCII
  • 4-way or 8-way movement
  • Three difficulty modes
  • Go for a quick run (1-2 hours) or try to clear all optional branches, including the infinite levels of The Underworld!


Traditional roguelikes are a ton of fun, but usually come with an alphabet-soup of commands that make them tedious and unintuitive. Golden Krone Hotel has a modern, streamlined interface:

  • A very small number of controls, all of which are rebindable
  • Completely playable with either mouse or keyboard
  • Keypress hints on all buttons to help you learn shortcuts
  • Tooltips on everything
  • No inventory management!
  • Items are picked up automatically and gear is auto-equipped

All of which results in less downtime and faster gameplay.
