New: events in MidBoss, starting with Pride Month!

When we released MidBoss we wanted to run periodic events with unlocks for players. Today, on the anniversary of the Stonewall riots, we kick things off with our first event celebrating LGBT pride.



A majority of the people we work with at Kitsune Games are part of the LGBT community in some way. To celebrate them, diversity, and the queer community in general we've created a pride death card theme which you can use until July 30th. Additionally, you can unlock the theme permanently by showing your support for the LGBT community and sharing a death (or victory) card using the pride theme on Twitter.

The unlock item is tradable but be warned: you'll probably not be able to get another one until the event repeats next year!

We're planning to make more events going forward so keep an eye out for future announcements!

Twitter death card sharing fixed

Hi everyone, looks like Twitter broke the death card sharing, but we fixed it, so you can share your cards and get the corresponding achievement again. Apologies for the inconvenience!

Reviews

“As a personal experience that allows you to hold the keys to your own entertainment, this game should have a wide appeal to both traditionalist and newcomers to the genre.”
8/10 – Old Man Mordaith

“A unique combat possession mechanic and a plethora of ways to combine and utilize monster abilities make MidBoss an exceptionally entertaining dungeon crawler.”
8/10 – Scholarly Gamers

“Like Dredmor, MidBoss is extremely accessible with a clear and simple interface and the tutorial makes it a breeze to get into. […] Honestly, the game has so much going for it, I'm in a mess on how to actually write about it.”

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.
