My pet project called Descension. My goal is to create a typical graphical roguelike using a mouse driven interface. It is in a very early alpha stage of development. Check out the website at for more information, screenshots and download links. Leave any questions/comments at the Descension Forum.

v 0.1.8 Released - 8/11/2011

  • added - enchanting screen
  • added - hit point and energy bars for creatures
  • added - third zoom level
  • added - several items used for enchanting - mana crystals, runes, holy symbols, skulls, magic dust, runes can be crafted just as other items
  • added - creature tooltip - displays stats for creature under the mouse pointer, currently used for debugging purposes, eventually ill tie it

into a stat or skill and show differing amounts of information based on that stat/skill

  • changed - crafting and enchanting screens no longer take focus from the gameplay screen
  • changed - lots of code refactoring/reorganizing/rewriting, ive done quite a bit of testing but probably missed some bugs
