Tower of Doom version 0.2.0 has been released. It's that Warhammer 40k rogue-like for those who don't remember all the previous postings about it. It's been a while since we've posted about it, so here's the massive changelog:

  • documentation updates:
    - new sections "FACTIONS", "ADVANCEMENT"
  • added a textfile which contains spoilers (spoilers.txt)
  • the final level uses a special pre-defined map now.
  • resistance messages were missing. fixed.
  • Pink Horrors spawn Blue Horrors at death now.
  • Hall of Fame entries contain the character's race now.
  • some characters were too fast (bug in AI running routine). fixed.
  • the engine supports companions/parties now.
  • improved the pathfinder (better results, faster)
  • major source code cleanup
  • completely overhauled the monster list. The game should be more challenging now.
  • transformed the manual and the compile guide into valid XHTML
  • added four new factions: Nurgle, Khorne, Tzeentch, Slaanesh
  • NPC drops (at death) messed up the screen(no "xxx dies." message. NPC already dead but still shown as alive on screen). Fixed.
  • removed NPC
    - Noam Rand, Insane Inmate
  • added new NPC
    - Martin Bitterfels
  • implemented a more sophisticated faction system with faction relationships etc. The current factions are: Player, Chaos, Rogue Traders, Monodominants
  • new command "use skill" (k)
  • added new item attributes
    - Master Crafted
    - Chaotic
  • added critical hit messages
  • added new skills
    - Strike to Injure
    - Engineering
    - Crack Shot
  • added new item
    - Knuckle Dusters
  • added new careers
    - Engineer (human/basic)
    - Techadept (human/advanced)
    - Techpriest (human/advanced)
    - Protagonist (human/basic)
    - Mercenary Captain (human/advanced)

So, now it's possible to Strike to Injure that Blue Horror that was spawned when you killed that Pink Horror with the Master Crafted gun you got from Martin Bitterfels.
