Yep, it's done.

Second Wind, folks, Second Wind is here.

It's a witty blend of Text Adventure, Roguelike, and Sweet Simplicity.

All in all, there are 20 classes, three skills each, three major areas, four endings, countless monsters (as in, I'm too lazy to count them,) treasures, specialty shops, equips, weapons, and more.

Folks, this is one big game.

Also, there are medals, lots of em'

I sincerely dare you to beat the game on Nethack Difficulty.

And remember, dying is all a part of the experience :D



The last update was on October 21st, Version 1.57:

- Fixed up the Saiyan's awaken doing absolutely nothing.
- Fixed the broken meter glitch... Hopefully.
- The "explore" segment should run faster.
- And some other stuff I can't remember.

Send a PM with any additional problems and I'll get on them as soon as possible! <-- Now there's a wiki too!

I'm loving this game, but am encountering a frequently reoccurring bug wherein an enemy will not die. 0 hp, no death. Hit again, still no death. The only recourse I'm left with is to run away and lost 1/3rd of my gold. I've lost two characters to this bug, being killed by an enemy who the round before I reduced to 0 HP.

As far as the game itself, I love the difficulty, the wide variety of characters(and the different attacks for each makes them unique, if not all particularly useful or viable), and high-lethality roguelike feel.

Great game, terrible bug. Fix please?

squidly responds:

Will do, is this usually when fighting the Clay?

I want to win on hard but it so fugging hard! It get harder so quick... No sensible progresion. Just fast and hard. You the bitch here. You get fukd and you have to like it... you come back for more smacking around and being called stupid. I love to hate this game... and I hate to love it. All your base are belong to it.

squidly responds:

Well, it's hard... I mean, that's what the difficulty says on the box! It's even red!

I like the game a lot. It has a lot of good things going for it. But my main grip is all the luck you need to stand a chance when the spike in difficulty increases. In this way, the game seems unbalanced, giving the monsters a huge advantage over the player. I don't mind being hit by 30 points of damage, but I do take exception to losing so much gold when I have no choice but to run - and running into several monsters in a row can decimate your funds quickly, and dash any hopes of getting health items by the time you run into another monster.

The other problem I have with the game are the random encounters. There doesn't seem to be a constant variety of randomness, not when I keep running into monster one after another, or when I go past 10 - 12 merchants and priests in a row. Or how items always give you the same effect or item in a row.

Other than those complaints it's an addictive game to play. So, well done.
