Release (Updated 20th May 2013)
The PC/Windows version of Diehard Dungeon is available to purchase DRM-Free from Desura and GamersGate.
Although the game is currently only available for PC/Windows, I'm looking into possible Linux & Mac ports. Please bear that in mind when voting.
Diehard Dungeon is also available to purchase from Xbox Live Indie Games (please note: the XBLIG version is no longer being updated past v1.2)

@The Rifler of Thousand Misses Hopefull they will fix the issue for you. Just out of interest, did you purchase the game on Desura? Or did you redeem a key from somewhere else on Desura? I think the system only gives keys to purchases made directly on Desura.

Yes, of course. Got no key there. Sent a message to desura customer service.

@Dr.McCannonfodder Trading Cards are in!
Tricktale  [author] Feb 24, 2014 @ 9:10am 
@Dr.McCannonfodder Yes, trading cards will definitely be added. They won't be added until about a week after launch though, as adding achievements, stats and leaderboards has eaten all of my time :)

cant wait to get my key i got this game from the groupees greenlight indie bundle 4 and this was the main reason i bought that bundle one question though, Are you thinking of adding steam trading cards?
Tricktale  [author] Feb 23, 2014 @ 3:19am 
@Nerd House I'm in the process of sorting out keys. I'm finishing up the required Steam stuff before they can be sent to bundle providers / Desura etc. Rest assured, you will receive them very soon. :)
