Steam release date set: 21 January 2019. Now Steam is reviewing my application.

Also, check out the new website:

Woohoo! Well done r0ber7, we all know the last 5% of development before the release is the hardest stage.  :good:

I used NVidia Shadowplay, it’s free with the NVidia driver download. It seems to use almost no GPU/CPU resources but obviously you need a NVidia GPU to use it.

Thanks for the offer MrPlow, I’m a total tin hat loon, when it comes to putting my info out there, so(I’m sure I’ll regret it! :P) I’ll pass.

This is strangely addictive. I am pretty sure its unpractical as a real composition tool but I enjoy messing around with it all the same. Its quite a time sink.

There is a definite game to be had from the basis of this design.  :blink:

This is kinda a wacky idea but it also kinda works too.  :S

Yup permadeath, simple idea but what tension it adds to the game, the more your character evolves, the more invested you become in his safety. It becomes an increasingly nervous endeavour to send you little guy to the lower depths.

The skills required in writing the game, should in every game coders arsenal too IMHO. Procedural level generation, RPG skill progression, ranged & melee fighting, objects(with skill levels) manipulation etc.

Yep, very nice puzzle game, the music and FX definitely added to the overall presentation too. Well done!  :good:

Picked up a copy tonight(Steam user "FEUD"), will leave a decent review once some time has ticked up on the Steam clock!  ;)

Moria on the school Apple 2 was the first computer game I played that blew me away. I used to compare computer games to the arcade(Defender, Pac-Man, Gauntlet etc.) but obviously computers at the time could not compare, so I was generally left unimpressed. But this Moria blew the arcade games away in terms gameplay, immersion and atmosphere. It was my first hint that computer games where not just "quick fix" type of games, they could be relaxing and you could pour time into them and get some very rewarding results. Even today, the scope of the actions that a player can do is still pretty well unmatched in graphical action RPGs.

This is a nice article I recently came across and I would like to share the link...

I've always been interested in Roguelikes but I was always baffled by the RPG mechanics and the general scope of Roguelikes. There a real 'coders' genre IMHO, almost no graphics or sound to mess around with, just code. I'm seriously thinking of giving it a go myself.  :noggin:

If anyone is really interested in this subject I would heartily recommend this subreddit too...

Thanks Dreamerman, not a great deal of development over the last 6 weeks or so as I have been drowned in my day-job but this contract is coming to an end so I'll be pressing ahead with P.M.S. very soon.

Lol, yeah Erico, made me realise how much I used the internet and how thankful I am for it working so well now. Cool thing is that the internet company has agreed tonight to give me a hundred quid for all the bother it caused, which was a very nice gesture I thought. So were all going out for a bang-up meal to celebrate, paid by the internet company!  :booze:

Yay, nearly 2 months without a proper internet service and now I’m back on. What a mess my it’s been. Glad I’m back in the modern world.

On the plus side I’ll be able able to up load at a much faster rate. Maybe do some YouTube vids etc.

Phew!  8)
