Char 1.0.1.31 released - Big feature - random map generation
Release - Char 1.0.1.30
Description
An old-school rogue-like where ascii characters rule the realm and interact with beautiful particle effects!

Key differentiators between this and other Rogue-like's:
. Particle effects! Fireballs aren't just * moving around!
. Monster's have interesting behavior. Some are pack animals and will flee if there aren't enough around. Mini-bosses will react intelligently to player behavior.
. Designed to be a short game. Estimated time (assuming you win) is 2 hours per game.
. Maps are pre-generated, but the selection of which maps are in play is random.
. A high difficulty level. There is no natural healing in the game, and there is no instant healing.

NaPompie - latest build is here - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/49629397/Char.rar
There's still plenty of issues and features missing - this is an alpha build - don't expect a perfect Beta.

stel - I find that on smaller screens (phone/tablet) - I greatly prefer the 3D view. At the same time, the map _is_ actually 3D, so aside from some tiles being used to represent depth (trenches / bushes / walls), I'm not sure how I'm going to handle that in 2D mode.
At the same time - even on my desktop 27" monitor, I prefer the 3D view at this point.

NaPompie - I have older builds available that you're welcome to try. What platform would you like a build for?

Can i download beta? If so, how?

Looks awesome! But I was wondering if there is any reason, a compelling one, for players to choose 3d over 2d?

Yeah! I wanna this game!

Thanks. I've been doing a bunch of work behind the scenes to plan out exactly what the next steps are in order to make sure everything is working smoothly for a full release. I'm extremely pleased and looking forward to getting my game published.
