    I got the game, haven't played it. It's also got a 50% off sale on steam. Checking it out now.

    It's pretty nice, but the difficulty gap between "very easy" and "easy" is huge. Still, managed to lose nurse somethingsomething on floor 10 with the very easy setting. Also, I feel like minor modules don't actually do all that much.

    The style is great though! Loving the pixelart and animation.

    Not at all relevant but I've been playing an ungodly amount of Endless Legend this weekend (also free for the weekend and 50% off on steam). It's really very good. : /

    I'm currently trying out Dungeon of the Endless...It's a very interesting mix of Roguelike, Tower-Defense, and Ressource Management. I quite like it, even though my best result so far is Floor 3 (on Easy). I'm very much in the learning phase, as I'm still discovering some of the base mechanics.

    As per the usual Dewi-Ksem rule, probably

    So, I've added another item in my backlog, and bought Dungeon of the Endless. My runs are getting better, I reached floor 8 (Easy difficulty again). I probably lost by trying to explore everything (and thus, generating huge mobs waves), instead of reaching the (known) exit. So I'm thinking that in latter floors, you don't want to over-explore...But i have to try things to be sure.

    Interestingly enough, i managed to go to floor 8 despite losing 2 members and a bunch of ressources in floor 5 or 6. I managed to get back a full team fully equipped. I just poorly managed floor 7. So it's possible to get back on your feet even if you had a big setback.

    Question for people playing multiplayer...How does it work ? Each player has its own character ? or everyone can control everything ?

    hit us up if were in a dungeon miumble channel, the multiplayer is a much nicer experience than the single: You can blame deaths on other people.

    Each player gets a share of resource income, each player controls between 0 an 4 heros, but usually 1 so each player gets one.

    I'm a co-op player, so i'm very much interested in multiplayer. However, i wanted to try it solo first, to get an idea on how you should play the game before going multiplayer. I didnt want a guy to tell me "this is the optimal strategy, do that because it's the only way to win".

    We have been experimenting, trying to find ways to stay alive. Shame you wheren't there for that.

    Although we have settled on having a industry micromanager and a "researcher", and pooling industry and reaserch to those people. That does seem to be a no-brainer.

    So ever since i tried DoE, i only played in Easy mode. 2 days ago i had a soul crushing defeat on the 11th floor, due to my greediness,and opening one door too many.

    So to go on a more positive note, i decided to check the "too easy" difficulty...first try, first victory. And it was an easy, boring one. I didn't lose a hero, i wasted ressources to grind achievements, i didn't feel much threatened. There was one ridiculous floor where i spent like 5 min with my heroes stacked in the escape room, and the monsters kept getting killed by my defenses before reaching me.

    So I've learned my lesson, i will only play on Easy mode from now on. Unless i need to grind achievements, there is no point in playing Too Easy

    Apologies, I was referring to Grumpy's wussy performance and refusal to turn the difficulty up last weekend. :P

    I tried playing multiplayer on easy with my brother and friend, and found that the constant complaining about us dying at floor one was annoying. I only play on easy on single player currently.

    So, after that boring Too Easy victory, i went back to Easy...I decided to try an Armory run for the first time.

    Well... it was a success. Victory, No attack on crystal, no hero lost. But damn was that 12th floor difficult. I was in a very nice position after floor #11, despite that, i still had some very close calls in floor 12. So i decided to make a run for it as soon as i could do it safely.

    Lady Jolery Turak is definitely my favorite hero out of all the ones I've tried so far. She is almost OP. I've managed to win the Armory run with 3 heroes i hadnt used for the very easy run, but i had to take the lady again with me. So much versatility and sustain, it's hard to not use her.
