Nyctos: Halls of Darkness is a claustrophobic hack-and-slash through a nightmare dungeon ruled by a dark force. The game is written in Python using Parole, a roguelike game engine under development by the same authors. The game revolves heavily around tactical situations related to light. Version 1.0.0 was written for the 2009 Seven Day Roguelike Challenge, and was finished at 1:40 pm, March 14th, 2009, 7 days after starting (including an extra clock-hour for daylight savings time).

The game is still in the early stages of development, and is probably too hard or too easy and unbalanced. It is at least possible to win, though. We are continuing to expand it into a larger game. Unimplemented features to come: weapon brands, weapon materials, item construction modifiers, skills.
