Possession v 1.0.4 Released (And news on a demo!)

Crashes fixed:
Fixed potential crash from switching back and forth between fullscreen and windowed mode
Fixed crash in the swamp from witch's AI
Fixed crash when using with braineater's ability
Hopefully fixed a crash that occurred when targeting abilities (I couldn't reproduce it, but I put in a check that should prevent it from happening - please let me know if this still reoccurs!)

Gameplay:
Awakened mummies are now possessable, but it's very difficult
The ancient civilization that created the Tombs no longer shoves two mummies into a single sarcophagus (Empty sarcophagi are no longer possessable)

UI:
Non-possessable corpses no longer say "you can possess it easily"
Settings now says "settings & controls" on main menu

Demo:
Steam treats adding a demo like adding a whole new game, so there'll be a delay on that.
There are now Mac, Windows and Linux demos available on itch.io, though: https://weirdfellows.itch.io/possession

About This Game

Possession is a traditional turn-based roguelike where you play as a ghost trying to make your way to the surface. You are incredibly frail, but have one advantage: you can possess the bodies of the monsters you encounter, and use their strength and abilities as your own. Hop from body to body as you attempt to make it back to the surface.

Features:

Dozens of possessable monsters, from the horrifying to the hilarious, with a wide variety of powers.
Special themed levels with unique hazards, creatures and layouts. Randomly generated, so each playthrough is different!
Item-less gameplay. The dead have no need for worldly possessions, they just slow you down.
Quick to pick up and play. Unlike most roguelikes, Possession doesn't require you to memorize dozens of weird key commands, or puzzle over confusing skill and ability lists before you start playing.
Entirely playable with just the keyboard, just the mouse, or a combination of the two.
Mod support! Add your own creatures, powers and special levels, or change the ones already there.
@ Choice between graphics or ASCII mode, for the oldschool roguelike fans.
