Moreth Hellspawn Update

Hi. Bunch more sinfilled friends for you to play with. :]

- added mini-bosses: Skullionous, Gobmonster, Soulstorm
- new character: Accursed Haunt (+ the 2 associated Achievements)
- new items: Polearm Steel, Vasular Purifier, Soul Dust, Chaotica Blessing/Sigil/Hex
- new pickups: Purity Heart, Soul Ammo
- new special room: Bathhouse Skip
- new enemies: Malvomind, Slimer, Reaper
- new cards: Exalt Husk, Nascent Cherub, Accursed Haunt, Malvomind, Slimer, Reaper, Skullionous, Gobmonster, Soulstorm
- new hats: Scary Screamer, Straima Ninja
- new settings: dither border, dash direction, game over button

The new mini-bosses aren't particularly difficult, they're more just to spice up the runs. At least one will show up each run in all of the game types.

The three Chaotica items work differently than normal items. They don't appear in the regular item pool, instead they can only be found in special chests that may or may not show during a run, or via the Malevolent Bestowal and Tarot Destiny special rooms. They offer either a positive or negative boost which is randomly determined each time their effect is used, but are overall a good thing to have if you're willing to take the risk.

The black dithered border around the screen has been slightly reduced and the new setting can reduce this further.

Enjoy! Oh and if you could post any issues in the Bugs forum that would be neat. :]

Penitence Update

Hi. Some new stuff for you to play with. :]

- 2 new characters (Exalt Husk, Nascent Cherub)
- 5 new items (Swift Steel, Charmed Claw, Bonewhisperer, Chosen One, Wardic Amulet)
- 2 new hats (Pumpkin Treat, Penny Clown)
- 6 new achievements related to the Penitence Trials and characters.

A new game mode of sorts has been added called the Penitence Trials. It has a bunch of mini challenges, such as killing the bosses without getting hit, traversing a crowded dungeon maze whilst temporarily being locked in rooms without any weapons... and then there's... Glitchmoria...

There's now a way to play random game types, and since the game mode selection menu is getting a bit crowded you can now choose to hide whichever ones you fancy (e.g. so you can hide the tutorial once you've beaten it).

During a Hunt you may stumble into the Dank Crypts special stage where you explore a tiny dungeon. The main reason it was added is so you can now unlock characters during Hunts. The proper Dungeon will now always have an unlockable character if there is one to unlock.

In Clahful Cards you can now play 2-player against each other, though is local play only. There's also an option for the board to potentially have trap cards on them, which apart from blocking a tile will also reduce the power value of any cards placed next to them.

Enjoy. :]

Next up, I'd like to add some more gribbily enemies...

About This Game

Ancient prophecies fortell, if there becometh no more room in Hell, thy evil dead shall spill onto thy Earth, and upon to Heaven's gate. And so, the Selestial Order send forth into Hellstorms divine skeletal vessels of hallowed Heavenly Keepers, to smite thy Hellion souls. You are one such Keeper... Will Earth fall to depravity? Will Heaven's purity remain? Sanctity rests with you...


Skelly Selest is a score-attack slash dash run 'n' gun-athon. It includes a variety of enemy wave-based pulse-pumping game modes with Steam score leaderboard support.

Venture into the procedurally generated perdition depths of Hell, through Bone Plains, Flesh Gardens and the Soul Necropolis where you must face the huge monstrosities of the Arch Lichemancer and Deamonica Netherlord alongside their numerous hordes of sinful horrors. Luckily you'll stumble upon myriad of blessed item loot to bolster your fighting prowess and perhaps even rescue alternate characters and other unlockables to customise your visual and gameplay styles.

The game modes also include a pit arena survive-athon where you battle endless meanies, a gloomy dank dungeon crawl open to all beasties and bosses, and even a strategic collectable card game inspired by Final Fantasy 8's Triple Triad.
