The Curse Of Yendor - IBOL17
Between the 30 steam reviews (100% positive) and all the reviews on mobile, I know there is a great user base that will appreciate new content.



New artifacts? New monsters? A new character class???

I don't know, but it will be awesome :D

Sales are up and that's wonderful! But it would be great if some of you nice new rogue-likers would leave a steam review ːsteamhappyː

So... I'll release a New Free Content Update as soon as The Curse Of Yendor hits 50 Steam reviews... If you've played for a while, maybe beaten it once or twice, or even discovered a hidden feature, I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks for playing!

The Curse Of Yendor - IBOL17
As promised, The Curse Of Yendor has been updated with 11 new artifacts.

Artifacts are powerful weapons and armor that can only be found every few levels inside difficult-to-enter "reliquaries".

Here's what's been added:

Mirror Mail : Ranged attacks bounce off you.
Carpenter's Shoes : Magically repairs broken floors.
Ring of Raging Fire : All around you, fires burn!
Hungry Hammer : Powerful smasher that drains your nutrition.
Bulwark Shield : Powerful shield, nothing can move you.
Pemini's Boots : The speed is blinding!
Phase Baton : You can walk through walls.
Summoner's Stone : Stone staff that makes more monsters spawn.
The Wasp : A small magic bow that shoots very quickly.
Ethereal Armor : Whisks you away through the ether.
Crown Of Eternal Suffering : Constantly heals you but provides no protection.

The Official Steam Guide has also been updated with this information.

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 ːsteamhappyː

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 and Google Play.

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

Hi, Everyone,
Thanks for playing, and I'm glad you're all enjoying it.

This is the first update since "The Curse Of Yendor" went live on Steam just a few days ago. It incorporates two genuine bug fixes and a lot of "quality of life" adjustments.

1.03 Change Log:
  • "movement compass" now disappears after a split second of mouse-over
  • movement keys are now actually re-map-able. Sorry!
  • monsters that fly don't care about crumbling floor or traps!
  • map scrolls now reveal walls, but not floors, to preserve the sense of discovery
  • default run mode is "walk", and is saved between games
  • sound and music preferences are saved between games
  • survival training now says "you can't win" when you enter the stone elemental room
  • fixed out-of-bounds errors regarding monster and item deletion
  • mouse-over of UI elements now displays re-bound hot keys
  • "auto-dig" is firmly *not* a feature, so please be careful where you walk
  • map, help, and visible terrains screens can now be closed with the same key that opens them.
  • wear, drop, and sell interfaces can *not* be closed with same key, since they require a key to perform an action (if I is inventory, you couldn't wear your I item).
  • ice magic now effects one more type of floor (discover it for yourself!)

Patches will continue as more feedback comes in.
Content updates are planned.
Work will begin on bringing Mac and Linux to Steam.

Hi and thanks for playing "The Curse Of Yendor"!

I set out to make a game that was approachable and tactical, and from the reviews, it's a hit, and that's a great feeling!

If you like the game, please leave a review this weekend. It's really helpful :D

Here's some additional information you might want to know:

There's a Steam Guide!

An LP from Sabouts where a great deal is explained.

Here's an LP by GrandpuhTY the whole way to the 6th floor. (If they seem to be universally compatible, they will migrate to steam later.)

And there is a screenshot contest in the works ːsteamhappyː , with a chance to immortalize your steam handle in the high score tables of new players. More about that later.

I'd like to thank all the people who bought on and helped to test various steam builds during the past few weeks. We squashed some bugs.

Development continues and your input is important!

OK, enjoy the game!
