Sure man, I can just give you a key ;)


Wait so you followed the instructions in the link and it didn't work?

I have to agree hand picking is best to show off great masterpieces otherwise not noticed. I do hope also this will in the long term make the market place a great place for more and more gamers!

Great review! Recommended to check Redzy out also for other games guys!

Replayed your email ;)

Hi tiroq!

Do you bought it when it was a demo still(tipped more than 8 if i remember correctly)?  Can you pass me the email you used to buy the game to german at roguempire dot com?

So I can back track it and see what I can do :D


Yes that in all dungeons but that one. I ll add it ^_^

You are probably in the first small dungeon that ends at depth 3 (sort of a tutorial dungeon).  It could be something related to holes but still you should be able to get to the surface if you always go through the stairs going up.

If possible could you sent a screenshot of the Map that should have the different exits highlighted. If we you don't see a solution sent me your save file (C:\Users\<username>\AppData\LocalLow\Portal Entertainment\Rogue-Empire\saves\0.8.9\Main\ <characterName>) to 

german at roguempire dot com? :D

Actually left click for moving should work as well. Man your case got me puzzled lol.

I am glad you are enjoying the game :) I do my best to improve it every day!

Wait mouse only fails when trying to move? Menus and similar functions work? How about a right click on any tile, does it bring up the contextual menu? 

Could you try the current nightly build?

Best Regards!

Very odd man. No one had any issue with the mouse. Could you tell me your system specifications? 

By the way the latest nightly build has keybinding configuration included.

Also next release will have user configurable keys so you can change it to what ever you feel comfortable ;)

No one complained about this... very odd.

You can move diagonaly with the mouse, with the num pad, or using both arrow keys at the same time (needs a little getting used to).

Also under settings->manual (I think its manual, I am not at home right now) you can see all key bindings. 

Hope this helps :D let me know in any case!

Also have a happy new year!


Hi! Seemed to have worked! Changed a few positions along the way lol :P


I asked this a couple of days through the support mail, not sure if it went through:

I am the Creator of Rogue Empire. I was wondering why my rating is 4.91 when in my dashboard I can see I have all ratings being 5 star ratings :S

Anyway great Job guys! Thanks for all the indie love and support. Have a great new year!


Hi vitokin! To redeem the steam key you should follow this guide:

Let me know if you have any issues with it ;)

PS: If you like he game and can give me a 5 star review it would really help me out :D

Thanks for the ideas! A lot of cool stuff!

He said this process of itch is trying to constantly open my game. Could this be? What can he do to resolve this?

Big thanks for the thumbs up man! Be sure to rate it too :D

Its coming up soon to steam. I am having some timing issues with all the sales and AAA titles coming up.  

In any case I will provide keys to you all who bought it here early for beta access before its public EA release in steam.


Rollback done successfully!

Hi man! I am really amazed every day by finding out about such cool persons that want to help us out indie devs! From my heart a big thanks to you!

Now, about my game :D Its a classic fantasy roguelike dungeon crawler but with more modern graphics and some unique aspects to it. Particularly for streaming I recommend the timed mode!

You can check it out here:

If it is something you might like just let me know! You would need a key right?

By the way I checked your youtube, cool stuff! Keep up the good work!

hey man, I myself did not do a campaign for now, but check this video at 3:54 time mark:

Its the creator of adom giving a lot of info about his indiegogo campaign.

One thing that might be wrong on yours (from what I heard in general) is that all or nothing campaigns get a much higher success rate.

Hope it helps! Don't throw the towel!

Thanks Kuitch! Really appreciate it!

Saw it, replayed too  ;) I will give you the updated version tomorrow as it is kind of late here.


Hi kuitch, sorry for not answering earlier. Just woke up an hour ago ^^

I tried to see if this was possible within the engine to disable without rebuilding the game as a none development build. Sadly it seems this is not an alternative. 

If it is ok with you I can rebuild you the current development build without the console. Might take a couple of hours. I can not guarantee your saves would work (they should) but at least the version would have updated stuff. If this is ok with you, pass me your mail from your purchase so I can identify you (it seems does not cross reference purchases to users which seems very odd...).

Let me know your OS also.

At last but not least if you can pass me your current logs, so I can take a look at those errors :D Logs are at 

<User>\AppData\LocalLow\Portal Entertainment\Rogue-Empire\output_log.txt

My mail for any thing else is

Sorry again for the inconvenience!
