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!




Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Here's a small guide

churches (level 1 & 2):
randal smith (pink): dex+, arm-
quickfoot quilogy (white): dex+, arm-
zorom necrogy (green): pwr-, health+
krillix killogy (red): pwr+, dex-
armon defology (cyan): arm+, health -

chests questions (level 1):
smith fears dynasty's end
randal smith created everything
krillix used blood to create the world
spehidis appears: angelic in gold
armon shows in: never shows his face
armon resides behind the infinite wall
zorom resides on the tower of life
krillix resides: arena

level 1: kill dungeon wanderer to get a key. Next find the keyhole to open it. Defeat the dungeon master (300 hp)
level 2: enter the three gazebo's and kill the fencers inside (red, blue and white) to reveal the stonehenge (the white gazebo is very rare though, i found one after 30 minutes)
level 3: enter the throne of gold.

pool dip (level 3):
red: pwr +, dex-
order (blue): arm+, health-

Gods (level 3):
throne: Smith (end)
tower: Zorrom
arena: krillix
road: spehidis
wall: armon

flute (level 1) is dex check
it's a difficult game sometimes due to complete randomness
I have no idea what the runes in level 2 do.

always have 5+ potions
in level 2 always buy herbs and drink from fountains. They always raise stats.
in level 2 & 3, accuracy (dex) is very important.
the Esper is a very powerful class.
I find that the game gets easier the further you get. Level 1 is the hardest part.

There's a wiki being made, I'm wondering if you're interested in contributing!

PM me for details! Or the links on the Facebook page (it's really early and rough right now.)

What the heck is d4, d8, or the like? i cant find it on the wiki.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

The game is very good with a lot of replayability since you have a lot of characters and it's a randomizer rpg so you can have a different game each time. though i did encounter a bug that spawned 2 enemies consecutively, it's still good. :D

squidly responds:

It's not a bug - it's a feature :D

Avante Garde clays can respawn as something else.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

How can such a buggy game be so compelling? Who knows, but it is.

I couldn't get the "ring of enragement" character to unlock nor could i get the "beat the game" character to unlock, in spite of the fact that i both beat the game and got the ring. eh, anyway, some of the classes are much less useful than others, for instance, I couldn't get the saiyan to gain any traction, perhaps a buff to it's health would help?

In any case, this game was surprisingly engaging, keep up the good work!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Love this game, but there is a glitch with the Espers class. When you kill an enemy after using sense and hammer and the enemy's health drops to zero, it will still continue to attack you and the only way to get out of the battle is to run. Doesn't happen if you kill it another way, just after you use sense then hammer to kill it. Really annoying but everything else seems to be good.
