Cardinal Quest 2: players needed for new beta version

Things have been going along pretty well on Cardinal Quest 2, and we now have a private preview version containing the whole first act of the game (the first act alone is about as long as the whole of Cardinal Quest 1).

We need some fresh set of eyes on it, which is where you come in! If you're interested in playing the private preview build simply mail Ruari or myself and we'll hook you up with a build for windows or mac (linux version coming shortly thereafter).

7DRL 2013 Success: Fisticuffsmanship!

Unfortunately I've had less time this year than usual for the annual 7DRL challenge, but I still managed to whip up something quick (with the assistant of the usual suspect Tom Whetnall):

  • YOUR POSITION MATTERS: pay attention to your defense value on the left, it’s better to have a wall at your back than an enemy.
  • EVERY ACTION COUNTS: the way you move through the fight will affect your chances of victory. Check the message log to see what action bonuses your moves trigger.
  • KNOW YOUR WEAPON: your weapon’s defense and attack value fluctuates based on usage – learn the pattern for each weapon to maximize the damage you deal.
