Steam Release Imminent!
Description
A Classical rogue-like with modern gameplay, focusing on tactical combat and terrain deformation.

"Your nemesis has found the Amulet of Yendor... Defeat him before he ascends to God-Hood!"

Features:
  • Explore vast procedural dungeons, forests, swamps, and towers
  • Dig through walls, burn trees, freeze rivers, and cause earthquakes
  • Defeat hordes of powerful monsters
  • Complete mini-quests on each floor to gain permanent rewards
  • Solve puzzles to unlock unique artifacts
  • Total support for keyboard and mouse control
  • Deep tactical combat with complex vulnerabilities and resistances
  • Discover infinite play mode



Terrain deformation is a major mechanic. Knock down the walls with your earthquake spell, find a hidden forest, burn it down, and freeze the acid surrounding a treasure-filled island! (Just be careful you don't set yourself on fire, or accidentally release a horde of out-of-depth monsters :D )





Some of you are thinking "Hey, that art looks familiar". And you're right. I work directly with David Gervais, the man who created many of the classic rogue-like tilesets. But he's going the extra mile with "Curse of Yendor", putting a modern spin on his classic artwork.





"Curse of Yendor" is in the final round of beta. It is feature-complete and bug-free. It is also being released on Android and Amazon as soon as the Greenlight begins. But this is not a PC port of a mobile game...

"Curse of Yendor" is written in App Game Kit, which allows porting to many major platforms with the push of a button. I pushed that button, and found that my PC game runs great on phones and tablets too!





So if you're looking for a REAL rogue-like (turn based, grid based, procedural, perma-death, tactical, looting, hack'n'slash, etc.) that you can really get into, "Curse of Yendor" is it... vote now!

Oh, yeah, absolutely. I just sent out that email to all existing itch.io supporters.

Hey thanks! As you can see, the comments are mostly very positive. What we really need is just more traffic.

How's the Greenlight going? I really hope this comes to Steam.
