    UPDATE: "Summon deer decoy" has been renamed to "Summon deercoy". Very important.

    One of the coolest deaths I've seen lately (pun intented). Physics-powered emergent gameplay at its finest.

    I finally got my trifecta of nukes+glass cannon+explosion immunity. Fired in the middle of a level, it destroys everything top to bottom. I cleared out a few levels like this before dying, when half of the holy mountain dropped on me from above. Goddamn game crashed when it was saving my death gif.

    Hmm looks nice but I prefer top-down over side-scroll.

    Made it all the way to the boss and was kicking ass with a very powerful wand (turns out those bouncy greens spells are legit all the way to the end with a damage+ buff and a high ROF), then my toes got stuck in lava and I melted to death :(

    This is seriously tempting me. It shouldn't be, I shouldn't spend $15 on an indie pixel platformer fuck around game since I'm already completely swamped with games and plan on nabbing RDR2 soon anyway (On top of ignoring almost all non-card games and playing MTG and Arkham Horror instead) but fuck it looks fun.

    It's worth it and you should get it. It's only getting better with every update too. There will be many years worth of fun to be had with this one.

    Bought the Ongoing Adventures of Bobbin Threadbare in the Steam sale and it is a really cool game. I enjoy the fact that it's kind of a weird mess rather than trying to be finely honed and designed like Spelunky or similar. I tried going all the way to the left of course, and climbed the giant tree I found, and got a mysterious egg which I thought was cool until I got swarmed with super-sized acid dudes. Reaching an ice-level just as I took a "Liquid freezes around you" perk was neat too, even if it led to a lot of crumbs of frozen water and acid stuck in the air.

    So how much procedural generation is going on exactly? The updates mention puzzles and there's a world map, so I assume it's not fully random?

    The broad layout of the world map is fixed. There will always be certain structures on (and above) the surface more or less in the same place, and a fixed arrangement of themed "levels" as you explore deeper (all completely continuous, though, without any loading screens). Always the same bypass from the Mines to the Ice level etc.

    The floorplan of the individual "levels" or regions is procedurally generated within the space reserved for it on the world map. There are some recognizable structures on small scales (such as the giant vats of fluid in the first region) that tend to repeat. Also, I'm pretty sure that not just the specific type and location of monsters and items depend on the seed, but also the general frequency of items and certain monster types. There are runs where you will find more wands than you can carry on the first level, and others that yield practically nothing in useful items.

    Also, the items and upgrades that you can pick up in the "rest areas" vary, of course, and since these are rare occasions, your equipment, and thus playing strategy, will tend to evolve quite differently from run to run. This, more than the procedurally generated floorplans, makes for much of the replay value. You often find yourself hoping to come across that same cool wand from your last run again, but may instead be given something just as powerful, but requiring entirely different strategies.

    Managed to beat the game for the first time today. Lightning Bolt + Lightning Immunity and that's pretty much it. Just resist the urge to mess around with Nukes, Glass Cannon and other things that are guaranteed to kill you and you're all set.
