Update 3.4 - UI improvements and other small changes

Hey guys/gals/...!

This has been a while^^.
I got an email from a player that had some issues with selling items. He tought he had found a bug but in the end this was an UIX (User Interface Experience) issue and not a bug... basically it means I failed to make a clear UI.
So I decided to rework some of the game user interfaces. What Lies Beneath was my first true game and I'm currently making my third one so I learnt a lot during all those years, and yep, the UI for What Lies Beneath sucked balls :D

It's not perfect yet and will probably never be since re-working the thing is a hard and time consuming process. A lot of the code is very amateur (I started working on this game in 2012, an eternity ago) and the whole project is cluttered with bad design issues and some abandoned content I don't want to delete which makes for big compile times (it takes a lot of time for my changes to take effect when I want to move an UI element 2 pixels on the right for exemple... or make any other changes, this is especially annoying when dealing with UI since everything has to align perfectly and takes a lot of trial and error).

But I'm not complaining, working again on this old project was a fun experience and while I was at it, I made a lot of other small / medium changes to the game. Most of it are quality of life improvements but I also made some other changes to better match the chapter "The Sorcerer" with "Myrne: The Quest" (the next game in the Myrne serie, check it out!), they both happen in the same place but the inn layout was very different in the two games.

So, I hope you'll like the changes. I'm really sorry if you expected some kind of new content, I know how it feels to see an old project suddenly be updated after x years and realize it's just some small changes...

But don't worry, I'm currently working on some kind of spiritual successor to this game! Myrne in space is a thing now :D
More infos here (no better place for it than Twitter at the moment, sorry): https://twitter.com/hashtag/Myrne6313?src=hash

  • Revamped the inn from the chapter "The Sorcerer" to match the inn from "Myrne: The Quest"

About This Game

What Lies Beneath is an action-RPG in which you'll explore the island of Namok and its deadly dungeon in hope to avenge your... hem... your wife.

Fight evil (and less evil) creatures, loot everything you find, pretend you care while villagers tell you everything about their lives, and improve your character as you like in an epic (well... not really actually) quest for revenge!

The adventure awaits! And the final boss too...

Main features


  • Not class-based : will you be a valiant knight throwing fireballs everywhere? A fearless mage under two tons of armor? Or an archer that doesn't hesitate before transforming his foes into frogs?
  • Content (story, quests, levels) crafted by hand for an unique feel
  • Fun and original universe with silly characters to speak to
  • Part of a series : Myrne (you don't need to have played the other games to understand what's going on)
  • Complete crafting system: create potions, armors, etc... mine some ores, pick up some shrooms,...
  • Challenge your friends in the local splitscreen multiplayer mode in deathmatch or in a Score the Cube game (a football match except with swords, arrows, fireballs... trust me, it's way more fun this way)
  • Play the campaign with a friend in local co-op
  • (Re-)discover the tiny story "The Sorcerer" alone or with a friend
