About This Game



Ebony Spire: Heresy is a love letter to dungeon crawlers of old with a twist: It's been signed with the blood of many roguelike games that have been experienced by the writer. Crawl, throw, summon and smash your way through 20 levels of pure mishap in this first person turn based dungeon crawling game. Experience a back-to-the-basics computer role playing game where items play a central role. Pick up, throw, use, equip and drink your way up the tower to slay the fervent goddess. 

Items range from equippable swords and armors to drinkable potions and artifacts that can summon, teleport or annihilate your enemies. Trinkets can be wield to increase your stats and everything can be thrown around to trigger their effects or just crush your opponents underneath their weight.

Choose the way you want to enjoy the game!

Try out the Classic Mode which allows you to explore the game via hand-crafted levels and carefully placed encounters or test your skill and luck in the Infinite mode which features procedurally generated levels!

KEY FEATURES

  • All items can be used by and against the player. Enemies have access to the same abilities as you do
  • Character development revolves around the items that can be obtained. There are no classic stats or XP grinding
  • Turn-based combat in a very roguelike fashion
  • Portals that will lead you outside the tower for a quick item hunting session: Cities, Harbors, Dungeons and Arenas can be explored
  • Two game modes: Classic and Infinite Heresy - toggle between them with a simple visit to the options menu!

WHY YOU MIGHT NOT LIKE THIS GAME

Ebony Spire: Heresy is a niche game that blends roguelike mechanics with old-school first person dungeon crawlers. The game is designed as a coffee-break game (short play sessions) and may be a deal-breaker for some players while others might enjoy the quick level-to-level progression while they are queueing in an online game.
