This is not only a game, it’s also an experiment in behavioral science.

Current known bugs:
I’ve been fighting a display bug getting the npcs to display properly. For some reason, it wants to place them slightly below the desired perspective. The best I’ve been able to do is adjust the Y position depending on distance from player, which helps but it still isn’t quite right. There’s also some areas of the map that are incomplete (waiting for the next update) where the player can walk off the map. Also a a few display bugs that will be easy to fix that cause text to appear outside the area where it’s supposed to.
- choice of left handed/right handed controls
- choice of on screen controls (for mobile)
- more npcs, skills, and adversaries
- new tilesets for different layers of dungeons
This should be considered a pre-alpha stage game distributed for feedback purposes. It is playable but you should expect to find bugs. Other feedback, like improving the relationships between skills and adversaries is also welcomed.
