Demo Update Coming!

Hello again! The campaign has slowed down a bit, but Polygon posted a story over the weekend that kept traffic trickling in and pushed us over the $85k mark. It's very hard to get attention this early into the campaign, but overall I think we're doing great.

We've been working furiously on a big update for the demo for the last 5 days. We felt this was a great way to show not only our dedication to the game, but also our appreciation of your generous support. Just take a look at this beautiful new tileset Tony has been working on.

Pretty amazing, right? We've also got a truckload of awesome stuff to add as well. The demo will have two new game modes (Hardcore & Time Trial), a massive graphics and map overhaul, seeds for reproducible dungeons, mappable keyboard controls, fan translation support, an extra dungeon floor, and tons of bug fixes and tweaks.

We hope you're as excited as we are to play this update! We're planning on releasing it this Friday if everything stays on schedule. Lastly, please help us by continuing to spread the word about the Kickstarter campaign and our Greenlight. Thank you again for your support!

      And I thought it was great looking already! Happy to see a hardcore mode there as well. Thats a very good addition that I'll be using quite a bit.

      Update on Friday you say? If I'm doing well on my revision (exam season) I'll play that - I wanted to make a video on the youtube for this. ^_^ I'll wait til then instead of downloading the current demo.

      Wow, the graphics update looks excellent! Looking forward to more :)

      Wow! This game is looking better and better. Can't wait for the demo update!!

    10. John DeLeon on April 22, 2013

      I for one hope you don't keep improving the graphics. I think it looks great now but any more might be too much and kill some of the nostalgia factor for me at least.

    11. Alef Ishara on April 22, 2013

      WoW =O
      I wasn't even expecting graphics improve since the old ones were fine, can't wait to see more

      If that's how much progress they can make in a week, I can only imagine what they can do in a year!

    13. Michael Mc on April 22, 2013

    14. Erik Jeppesen on April 22, 2013

      That's a terrific transition in art direction from 1.03 to 1.04. It's really looking great.
