  • Vanquish 32 types of enemies, including 6 absurdly lethal boss monsters
  • Unlock new cards every 5 waves to expand your capabilities

Controls:

  • WASD, arrow keys, or vi-keys to move or use menus

  • Spacebar or period to wait one turn, to make selections in menus, or to exit the deck builder
  • + and – to add or remove cards from your deck

Known Bugs:

  • Enemy pathfinding is rather weak.
  • Minimum deck size of 20 cards is not enforced, and issues may occur with decks of 7 or fewer cards; please make your decks contain at least 20 cards.

  • Completely untested on any platforms other than Mac OS X.

Download Deathdealer for Mac OS X here, or the python source (for any platform with Python) here.

    Interesting roguelike, but I have one advise. libtcod.dylib isn’t good for all platforms. If you want to make source running on all platforms, add to archive more libtcod-ish files. For windows libtcodpy.py, probably libtcod-mingw.dll and SDL.dll. For linux libtcod.so, etc.

    After all, congratulations! 🙂

    Seriously, I don’t know how to contact private in wordpress (it is possible?), then I leave it here.

    I made windows executable file from your sources.
