Greenlit! Thank you!
What's next?

First of all, I will be at Momocon[] in Atlanta, Georgia at the end of May exhibiting MidBoss. If you're in the neighbourhood, please come by and say hi! After that, work will resume on developing the game, and I'll be working on getting the Steam store page up so the game can be added to wishlists. You can subscribe[] to be notified by email when this happens.

MidBoss will not be available as early access, and will launch on Steam when the game exits beta with the v1.0 release. Until such a time if you want to support development (and get a discount) you can purchase the game directly via

Thanks again for all the support, I won't let you down!

Release date: Late 2015
MidBoss: The possession based graphical roguelike
A turn-based procedurally generated death labyrinth


MidBoss[] is a video game about possessing your defeated enemies in order to become stronger. You play the weakest of the dungeon denizens, an imp with no ability other than possessing other creatures. Your goal is to defeat and possess increasingly stronger creatures, unlocking their abilities for yourself and becoming stronger as you go along, and eventually defeat and become the dungeon's ultimate endboss.

Free Beta

You don't have to wait for MidBoss to go through Greenlight to play it. Download and play the beta now, for free!

Free beta download[] (Windows only)

  • Possess your enemy and gain their strengths and skills
  • An absolute mess of abilities. We've got your passives, your actives, and your innates! With only half the planned enemies implemented, there are already 35 unique abilities to discover and learn.
  • Lots of equipment to find, seven types of weapons, shields, armor, boots, and accessories in 6 different rarity flavors!
  • Randomized potions every game. Who knows what's in these mystery bottles! (optional)
  • Playable with either mouse and/or keyboard. Pick whatever control scheme you like!
  • Randomly generated dungeon floors are different every time.
  • Like tooltips? We've got tooltips for everything! All the information you need at your fingertips.
  • Line of sight and fog of war systems, and none of that cone of sight stuff. We assume you can look over your shoulder.
  • Single-file save and resume, you don't even have to click any buttons for your game to save, it's all taken care of.
  • Permanent death, if you die your save is gone! An unforgiving roguelike, just the way we like it.
  • Full options menu including key rebinding, resolution options, and more!
  • Miss the good old days? Got some nostalgia for those eye-bleeding CGA cyans and magentas? Miss the old Gameboy days, or were you more of a C64 fan? There's 12 retro mode filters available in the options menu, and more coming in the future!
  • More particles than you can realistically shake a stick at!

Work in Progress

This game is in beta. More features and content[] will be added in the future.

@DeNarr: Thanks for supporting the game! Since it's been greenlit, the game will be available on Steam, and you will be receiving a Steam key when it is. :)

So I was looking for a good roguelike with a doppleganger / shapeshift aspect, and this fit the bill perfectly! I tried the beta, and am really enjoying it. Am purchasing now to show support, but still hope you guys get greenlit, as I'd love to be able to earn achievements and have this game on my steam list.
