Patch 1.08 : Golden Idol

Version 1.08 Release Notes
Monday January 29th, 2018


No more unused gold, you can now sacrifice your extra cash to a Golden Idol in exchange for permanent skill points. The total gold accumulated in your dungeon run will now count in your score.

Benefit from all these stones you find lying around: use them with a special slingshot and a named slingshot with higher statistics.

Finally, we've added a bunch of UI improvements: the mouse cursor will change to show if the monster you see is in range/in the line of sight of your ranged weapon.
The current experience of each talent is now displayed on your character sheet. Your choice of game settings for the current dungeon run is available. The minimap

now indicates items and monsters' locations. A new appraising icon is now displayed on the current item being appraised in your inventory.

The Veteran mode can now be unlocked on any game settings, even on Wimpy difficulty with autosave on. You just need to complete the game once to unlock this


Game Improvement:
  • New general item: The Golden Idol allows you to sacrifice 1000 gold for 1 permanent skill point.
  • New weapons: Golden Slingshot, and Devil Slingshot.

  • Items no longer meeting their statistics requirements will now unequip and drop on the floor instead of staying equiped.
  • Items granting extra mana will no longer raise your current mana but only your maximum mana pool.
  • Veteran mode can now be unlocked on any game settings.

Fixed bugs:
  • Some special game items like vase, chest, vendors, vendors pedestal were sometimes erased at the map creation.
  • Hitting [Space] after clicking into the shortcut bar was repeating the last shorcut used instead of skipping a turn.
  • Identifying an item with a scroll reset the current appraise.
  • Know potion and scrolls could still be appraised.
  • Selling an item being appraised will not reset the appraise counter.
  • Using a Teleport scroll into the tutorial will teleport you into a wall.

About This Game

Dynamic turn by turn classic Roguelike with an unique casting system. Easy to play and hard to master!

Explore the mysterious Dungeons of Cyndaria and unearth an extensive lore. A plethora of creatures and magical items are waiting for you to step into ever-changing dungeons, with diverse biomes and challenges.

Defeat Dragon bosses to unleash hidden runes and recover the sacred seeds of Cyndaria to restore the divine trees.

Dungeons can be unforgiving: be sure to eat and rest in time, use all your abilities wisely. Nothing stops you from skipping bosses to rush and move to the next dungeon, but you’ll also meet true death if you don’t take time to level up your character and abilities.

Each class has access to 4 rune types and casts spells by drawing them on a runic compass.

Make your character unique, based on your gameplay: do you prefer shooting arrows with your warrior? Just use your bow more often, and your “Ranged weapons” specialization will level up, twice faster if you chose the talent “Hunter” when rolling your character.

Our game is similar to classic roguelike such as Nethack, enhanced with an extensive interface and an intuitive fast access to melee, ranged or spell casting.

Life and mana gradually refill after several turns, but you can choose the faster way by sleeping, which consumes precious food.

Permadeath, turn by turn gameplay, runecast system, hunger, random levels with predetermined land patches on each floor, 200+ equipment pieces to loot, cursed items and enchanted items, extensive inventory system, random potions, scrolls... and so much more to discover! The better to handle all situations
