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!

Having tons of fun with this game.

Can't seem to find a way to get -3 in a stat though...

I very much enjoyed the game, and I didn't experience too many bugs... Other than I've successfully played the flute about a hundred times now and I still haven't gotten the bard/piper/whichever character is unlocked by doing that.

Another thing, I currently have a psionic (don't know if that matters or not) and I'm wandering around level three. I've killed all the gods except the zombie one and Smith, but I can't seem to find the tower of life any more. I found it once, and the zombie god killed me, and now his tower has just seemed to disappear.

As soon as I saw this game I immediately went to TVtropes and made a page for it. I had a lot of fun and managed to beat the game on easy with an Esper, though i got bad endings XD;

i noticed some bugs, though. I've been trying to get the Rune of Enragement medal/class as a Mage but even when i manage to do so i cannot get the award. Also in the third area, healing potions instantly killed me.

squidly responds:

You don't know how much I wanted a TV tropes page for this - I pretty much built the game with that site in mind :D

As for the healing potions, I think I'm getting close to tracking down the source of this elusive bug - hopefully it'll be fixed by tomorrow night!

1st off absolutely loved this game! It was highly addicting and very entertaining. After wasting enough time to beat it on Nethack and obtain all medals, I have come to the conclusion on the following.
1) Oni, Espers, and Darkfolk (he completely roflstomps) are overpowered
2) Saiyan is trash even after you unlock super. (Kinda disappointing) Maybe considered sub-par at best.
3) Enforcer's kick and ccccombo breaker are broken considering chop by far does way more damage regardless how many kicks and chops you do in a fight.
4) Black Guard sacrificing dex permanately for a skill is completely useless considering the dex curve after area 1 scales immensely
5) Getting cubed has never been more frustrating
6) The curve from the cubes to the wanderers/ mobs in dungeon 1 is a bit overbearing for some characters regardless of difficulty. (Guess that's part of the game)
7) The 3 fencers dex requirement is ridiculously high compared to the trash mob in that area.
8) Gets really annoying if your low on dex and you only have gachapon / that really low chance of getting the time machine (and having two pieces of time on you) to raise dex in area 3.
9) The 4 lords were a really cool concept
10) Countless times i was 10 or less gold under the smith price for what I needed for an upgrade (go figure)
11) Armor does not seem on par with with the usefullness of dex/pwr
12) If you don't use JC, getting 3 successful flutes takes a really long time
13) For the longest time I though unlocking Black Guard involved getting -3 from the pots / fountains in a row...(derp)
14) The class concept of the Avenger was really interesting.
15) The Paladin will require you to get a second mortgage.
16) The cameos and allusions in this game were completely awesome!
17) Fighting 3 times in the arena takes an annoying amount of luck. (was hoping for the fights to be more challenging.)
18) Was hoping for better events when you wandered the tower, the infinite wall, and the golden throne.
19) Really wanted the runes to be part of a big event.
20) Wish it was a bit longer!
Anyways those are my ten cents, I hope to see more content in the future.
Good Work!
