Daily Specials Update & Etc!

Oh man, here's a good one!


  • The game now has built-in daily specials that grant bonus items and effects during certain special days. Each of these can be used throughout the day for as many new games as you started. Starting with this weekend for example all characters gain an extra starting gift. Every 9th of the month is the Thief's Special. There are many more waiting to be discovered, the only way to find them is to play!


  • New enemies: Battle Druid and Phase Druid. These are less common enemies and can be found from about the 9th floor or so onward. Armed with an assortment of spells and able to shield bash, these should be a lot of fun haha. The Phase Druid appears ghostly and has a high evasion rate to boot.


  • Xtoli visitors will now apear at your graveside when you die. Depending on how many points you've earned you can get a great deal of them to show up and pay their respects.


  • The only change that you'll notice is that now there's a little green "Eq" next to your equipped gear row on the backpack screen. This replaces the little blue triangle of old.

  • Leaned how to spell "SCREEN" correctly haha....

That's all for today. The special daily bonuses will be able to sort of automatically take over many of the updates I usually do, and make many days out there special for somebody.

Have a good one!

Screen Size Options & Etc

Hi guys, sort of a small but likely popular update today. I've added menu options for 3 different screen sizes to enjoy:

Small (default)- The regular size you're used to seeing

Medium- A bit bigger, this one's cool

Stretch- Stretches the game to full size, might not look super great but maybe there are those that'd use it


In addition I've added some more internal stuff that will hopefully help those of you who have experienced the shop freeze up glitch.


Thanks, and have a good day!

About This Game

A randomly generated deal, each game is different!


You're a kid. Who's gray. With rabbit ears.

People have been grumbling about the goings-on below town. Seems there's some sort of magic lantern that's throwing the whole joint into chaos. Yeah, that's what I said too! Full of it, they gotta' be, right? Turns out- not so much..

So.. What's it you do again, kid? Warrior? Thief? Wizard? Cleric??!
OH! A lawyer!?

Hahaha, well you sure had me fooled there for a while.. little jerk..

Here's what you're gonna' do: Head below town, JUST FOR ME, and see what the hell that Lantern's on about. They tell me it turns all kinds of colors, and each color changes the rules.

How so!? What am I, an electrician?!?
That's up to you to find out!

And so you did!


Equin: The Lantern is my fun little roguelike with some wholly original ideas. Conquer the 50 floor dungeon and its evil inhabitants in a quest to the bottom of the joint to find the mysterious lantern itself. With features like a turn-based 1st person battle system, Auto Killing weaker enemies, an XP Hit Streak bonus, hundreds of weapons and armor to find, diabolical floor events to shake things up, a lantern who screws with the rules, and oh yeah- PERMADEATH BABY, this is the game for those who like a good challenge.

STRATEGERIZE by slamming doors in your enemy's face to lock them in a room, or lead them into a web and trap their stank @sses. Watch out for stronger champ versions though and much stronger bosses at every turn!

NOTE: This time around I got some help from the fantasic Rocco W and his sick 8-bit tunes! They were so good I decided to scrap all my own music except for the title theme.
