A twenty-level dungeon crawl with a skill and feat system, originally starting development in October 2011. The game features starting traits which define your special ability throughout the game on top of the skills/feats which you gain from shrines that can be found within the dungeon. There is a quick start system in place that will allow you to save past configurations for a faster start. There is a high-score system which is based on dungeon depth and player level comparisons. The game focuses on a clean user interface with many accessibility options such as quick slots, automated task options, key bindings and more.
