MidBoss v1.0.2 update

MidBoss is now on version 1.0.2. Please check the changelog below for changes.

Changes in v1.0.2:
(savegame compatible with previous version) [2017-04-17]

Bug Fixes
- Fixed a bug where minitaurs that died from poison would die, giving experience, then come immediately back to life.
- Fixed a bug where turn delay was being incorrectly applied to non-visible creatures and not applied to visible creatures.
- Fixed a bug with Mid nagging players to equip optional forms when not appropriate.

GUI
- A notification now appears on screen when a screenshot is taken.
- Potentially fixed a bug where tooltips contained comparisons for non-equipment items?
- You can now use or equip items in the inventory by right clicking the item.

Input
- Added pick up items/drop item key. This is bound to G and numpad 0 by default. Hover your mouse cursor over an item and press G to drop it. When the inventory screen is closed this key will pick up all items in a 3x3 tile area centered on the player in a random order.
- Added use/equip item key. This is not bound by default. Hover your mouse cursor over an item and press the key after binding it to use or equip the item.

Items
- Item tomes will now have much more abilities available to spawn with early in the game.
- You can now identify potions using identification scrolls.

Miscellaneous
- Made soul fatigue clearer by showing the tutorial message when the first stack appears, adding an extra dialogue, and making the tooltip show the current debuff strength.
- The default screenshot key on the Steam version of MidBoss is now F11.

Options
- Added an option to turn off the turn delay pause for non-aggro creatures.
- Added option to disable the true color scale2x upscaling algorithm and use nearest neighbor instead.

Reviews

“If you're an experienced roguelike player, then this game is different enough to provide a new and interesting experience. If you're new to the genre, this is probably one of the most accessible games of its type I've come across.”
A minus – The Game Detective

“It's like levelling up a party of Pokemon, only it's yourself.”
CrazedNaly

“These are fish boxes. I don't know why every box has fish in it, but gosh darnit, they're fish boxes.”

About This Game

Kill your enemies, possess their bodies, and take their abilities as your own in this turn-based procedurally generated death labyrinth. You play as the imp, the weakest monster in the dungeon. Tired of being bullied by the other monsters, you set off with your sidekick Mid to descend to the deepest levels of the dungeon, defeat the final boss, and take his place.

MidBoss is easy to pick up and play if you're new to the genre of traditional roguelikes (turn-based strategic RPGs with permadeath), but still has the depth and complexity that veterans expect and enjoy.
