WazHack 1.2 enters Public Beta
YOGSCAST stars WazHack!
Description
Release date: v1.1 available now. v1.2 scheduled for late 2013.
Time moves forward only when you do in the dungeons of WazHack, so you can take your time to solve problems instead of just spamming 'attack' and 'drink healing potion'.

You don't see it much in the all-action video above, but some of the most fun is had just standing still trying to work out how to get out of a sticky situation. Should you try that unknown potion? Maybe it's Healing? What about that wand? Maybe it's Magic Missile... or maybe it's a Wand of Create Monster, and it'll get even stickier!

Demo available now on http://www.wazhack.com/play

There are many great gameplay videos on YouTube, such as the two-part review/demo by YOGSCAST:

Part 1 - Ladder Level
Part 2 - Blessed Mace

With over 250 unique items to be found, you will invent your own solutions to sticky situations. With over 100 different monsters, many with unusual attacks, you will find plenty of sticky situations!

You start with your choice from 8 character classes, each with different starting equipment and stats, but the game you play depends on what interesting loot you find. Maybe you'll find a great spellbook and put all your efforts into turning your uneducated knight into a master battle mage!

The procedurally-generated dungeon and vast array of possible items gives immense replay value. Some games you'll find a good weapon early, other times you'll rely on wands or potions or spells.

The multiplayer mode is a little crazy. Each player is actually in their own instance of the same dungeon. Players encounter the same monsters, but fight them individually. In co-op mode, players find different loot and may trade with each other whenever standing in the same place. In competition mode, players find the same loot.

If you have ever played NetHack or a similar roguelike, you will find plenty familiar about this game, but be prepared for a lot of surprises too.

The demo of version 1.1 can be played right now on http://www.wazhack.com (Windows/Mac). You can find the standalone Windows and MacOSX versions there too. Or search for wazhack on YouTube to see players' gameplay videos. A version of the game with simplified graphics has also been ported to iOS and Android.

Should the game get on Steam and you've already bought the Windows/Mac/Linux game elsewhere, you'll of course get a free copy on Steam. The game is under constant development, so stay tuned for more!

I admit I hadn't been playing this game for awhile (had to clean up Desura and computer in general). But I am really happy to hear this game arriving to Steam soonish; I had loads of interesting times playing this game last year.

Is the Steam Beta close to an all access version? Have been lurking on Reddit for awhile but didn't see any new timelines for this or the iOS update. Very happy to see that controller support is in the works also!! Great game WAZ!!!!! I know it's only a matter of weeks now but still can't come soon enough!!!

I've spent more time playing this game than just about any other. Very addicting. Just trying to finish with one last class - sorcerous - she's quite difficult to keep alive past 2000 feet or so. I've won with just about every other class - including as a skeleton, a balrog, even as a battle lich. Love this game.
