Purge Persist and Profit!

While you're waiting for Curse of Yendor's new artifacts to show up (hint hint!), you can play my entry for this year's 7DRL (seven day rogue like). It's my 8th year in a row doing this game jam :steamhappy:

This sci-fi rogue-like runner has you fighting against your oxygen supply on a toxic alien planet infested with hideous bugs. You're a faceless corporate nobody trying to prove your worth... maybe if you travel far enough, kill enough bugs, and set up new company outposts, you just might get that promotion!

But the really cool feature of this game is that it anonymously tracks the progress of all users, and it gives you rewards based on community milestones!

Killed 1000 bugs? Here's some money! Set up 10 new bases? Money. Make a run as a CEO? Big Money!

More players killing more bugs means more funding for everyone!

It's free on https://ibol17.itch.io/purge-persist-and-profit and Google Play.

Then maybe we'll talk about those artifacts...

Yendor 1.1 Released!

Almost a year after launch, The Curse of Yendor gets an update!

Big stuff:

  • 50 New Steam Achievements!
  • Decade skills!
  • The Merchant can sell you items!

Other Stuff:
  • There are no longer any "randomly impassible" terrains
  • Lots of other weird dungeon generation behavior has been fixed
  • Increased quality of all special loot: chests, artifacts, coin rooms
  • There is now an option to turn off animations that cause slow-downs on some old machines.
  • Prices have been submitted for Steam's new currencies (sorry for the delay).

Steam Guide Update:
  • The Steam Guide has been updated to include information on all the new skills and behaviors.

What did NOT make it into this update
  • New artifacts

What should I do when I'm not in a rogue-like mood?
