Been a while / What a Ride!
Release date: Q1-Q2 of 2016
Descend into the horrors under the village in this modern Roguelike!

Turn-based, technical but with an easy to use interface, play a Rogue-Like without the irks and hassles of the genre!
Get stronger by modifying the village, get new shopkeepers (and items for them!) so that your next run will be easier and funnier!

Visit dungeons, dangerous forests, a wizard tower and a lot more in:

a Family of Grave Diggers! [Beta 0.65]

For a more in depth description, continue to read.
The game uses SDL and opengl so it's actually full 3D (as you can see in one of the debug screenshots), I'll probably make something out of that.
It's coded in C++ and Lua because the game is supposed to be as close as 100% moddable as it can be.
Exceptions are the core game mechanics like, you walk around on a map, it is turnbased...
Today, stats, fights, monsters, items etcetera are fully modifiable, just add a Lua script for an item and add it in the script that 'drops' items plus an icon or two and there you are, a new battleaxe!
The game is also aimed to be fully keyboard playable (even without the numpad for sweet laptop experience).

Today it is English on Windows only as I'm concentrating on finishing the game itself but when it's ready, possible developments might be Mac/Linux and other languages (French, Spanish, Russian...)

If you want to check out the development, I have a devblog [] and a twitter where I sometimes twitt.



The Early Access is mostly for playtesting/tweaking/finding the last bugs while in the meantime the last 20-30% of the games content gets added.
