Deathcall is my own IP, yes. I created it for the jam. Originally it was named "Deathcaller" but I shortened it to Deathcall so that the ASCII art on the main menu would fit within my column limit :). 

I appreciate you taking the time to play and review it. I'm excited to see your Let's Play!

Thanks for playing! What made you decide to check it out?

Restoration restores a percentage of your stats instead of 100%. You made me find a bug however in that Restoration only restores a percentage if you are not in the Barrens yet. Once in the Barrens it is exactly the same as Full Restore, just the name is different. If you get it in the Forest it'll be called Restore; if you use it in the Forest it will do a partial restore. If you then get to the barrens it becomes a full restore. Oops! :). The fix is just to check whether you got it early or not and use that value

Thanks for playing it!
