The initial version of this game was Slash's entry for the second 7DRL programming contest

In the 7DRL version, there was no way to access the different weapons or armor; an updated version was released on 07/05/2006; it added LOS, items on floor, and enhanced UI and combat.

After a lot of work, and three playtesting versions, a very updated version 0.3 was released 24/01/07, which added lots of things including 8 Circles of magic, lots of spells, combat maneuvers, a GFX interface, music and many more things.

Later on, it was 0.31 and 0.32, each one polished thanks to the valuable input from playtesters on the official website; artifacts, special features in the levels, and many more things were added, including a UI using the David Gervais tileset.
