GREENLIT!!!!
Equin: The Lantern, now released!
Description
Release date: August 26th, 2016

A randomly generated deal, each game is different!

Story:

You're a kid. Who's gray. With rabbit ears.

People have been grumbling about the goings-on below town. Seems there's some sort of magic lantern that's throwing the whole joint into chaos. Yeah, that's what I said too! Full of it, they gotta' be, right? Turns out- not so much..

So.. What's it you do again, kid? Warrior? Thief? Wizard?
OH! A lawyer!?

Hahaha, well you sure had me fooled there for a while.. little jerk..

Here's what you're gonna' do: Head below town, JUST FOR ME, and see what the hell that Lantern's on about. They tell me it turns all kinds of colors, and each color changes the rules.

How so!? What am I, an electrician?!?
That's up to you to find out!

And so you did!

---

Equin: The Lantern is my fun little roguelike with some wholly original ideas. Conquer the 50 floor dungeon and its evil inhabitants in a quest to the bottom of the joint to find the mysterious lantern itself. With features like a turn-based 1st person battle system, Auto Killing weaker enemies, an XP Hit Streak bonus, hundreds of weapons and armor to find, diabolical floor events to shake things up, a lantern who screws with the rules, and oh yeah- PERMADEATH BABY, this is the game for those who like a good challenge.

STRATEGERIZE by slamming doors in your enemy's face to lock them in a room, or lead them into a web and trap their stank @sses. Watch out for stronger champ versions though and much stronger bosses at every turn!

NOTE: This time around I got some help from the fantasic Rocco W and his sick 8-bit tunes! They were so good I decided to scrap all my own music except for the title theme.

If you missed it before, there's a DEMO available from my website that you should check out. If you like that, you'll love the full game:

Good luck !

Thanks! Hopefully this'll go through soon enough. It's getting votes here and there which will eventually add up to Valve's magic number!

Thanks, huntertowe! I would be interested in your opinions on it when you're ready though. It's been getting (kind of) a lot of votes lately so I hope it won't be in Greenlight limbo too long.

RE: Android- Currently I don't have any plans on porting my stuff on any non-Windows platforms. Mostly because #1 I don't know how to and #2 from what I hear it can get expensive. Plus I don't want to screw it up!

Also, I have a question. Do you plan on porting any of your games to Android?

I'm too lazy to leave a lengthy review right now, but I will say that I love this game!
