Beware the Thief!

It's a twist I didn't see coming however I feel this will spruce things up a bit.


  • New mechanic: Thief-class enemies can now open closed doors! Remember how you could close doors to give yourself a breather from monsters? Well muggers, master thieves, and the ninja boss can now open doors up and make your life less safe. Hooray!

    It's important to note that these guys can not open LOCKED doors, just regular CLOSED ones. What am I, a monster??

  • New page about this in the tutorial section.


None this time.


  • Runes now have no level 7 restriction on them. I thought I fixed this last time but somehow didn't. Whoops!

  • There were a couple of points next to walls where a door should've been able to be constructed via a Door Kit but didn't work. They do now!


That's it for now. I have more things planned but due to the rune level restriction thing not working I decided to push half of this through early.

See you soon!

About This Game

A randomly generated deal, each game is different! Free content updates all the time!


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??! Cultist??!!
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 roguelike with some wholly original ideas. Easy to get into, tough to master. 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.
